PROS

Using the three audio tones, you are going to be able to differentiate the different metals that you are going to encounter while you are on the field.

For nails, bottle caps and nickels, you will hear the low sound. This means that you are just getting smaller metals that might not be of very much value to you.

For medium, you are going to be able to detect gold, zinc or copper. This is great if you are looking for actually valuable metals in the form of gold, especially.

Lastly, you are going to get the high tone for both brass and silver. Silver is one of the best metals to search for since they were fairly common back then when it comes to being buried.

You are assured that you are not wasting your time looking for random things since you are only getting the tones for the things that you actually might have an interest in.

With the notch discrimination, you are also going to get a lot of assurance that the things you get alerted for are actually precious metals. All of the junk metals and scrap that you might hover your metal detector on are going to be ignored.

This is one of the best features of the TC-3020 since you are assured that you are spending your time only for what you will actually value. There are a lot of different metal types that are proven to be more valuable than other things.

This metal detector brings your focus on those so you are not spending your time digging only to find absolute trash.

CONS

Though great overall, it is certainly an amateur oriented equipment. There are a lot of features that might prove to be missing if you are someone who has a lot of experience under your belt in metal detecting. There are also functions that serve only to be able to get used to.

This is great if you are someone who is just starting your career as a treasure hunter but might prove to be futile if you are someone who had already spent a lot of time on the field looking for precious metals.

CONCLUSION

We are going to give the Treasure Cove TC-3020 Fortune Finder four stars out of five. Priced at just under $200, you are not going to get any other unit that works as smoothly as this one especially if you are a beginner.

There are a lot of things that you are going to want to have if you are already someone with a lot of experience. Ultimately, this is more on personal preference and perceived skill level.
