That is probably the worst amount you can have Cheesy Well at least for a new machine as you will be in the realms of the higher priced starter machines.
My best advice would be to look at the second hand market.

Not helping Stickygreen at all but the DFX is head and shoulders above the XP 250 on adaptability, remember you can't go anywhere near the beach with an XP and the settings on the DFX allow it to be used in a lot more environments at it's best.

I'd buy a Garrett Euroace for 250 and a pro Pointer with the remainder.

To be honest that is a very awkward amount.  Mmm  I recently bought a used Minelab Musketeer pro Advantage with 12" coil for 200 which  is an awesome deep machine with a lightning fast response rate , terrific seperation and very useable in streams and on the beach too.

The early Minelabs like the Sovereighn and Advantage  have become a bit of a cult thing recently and used machines still fetch good prices which is a testament to how good they still perform.
Only problem is they are awful heavy.

hi, i suppose it depends on where you want to go with it and do you want a screen or just audio? are you bothered about weight? i bought a fisher f2 (good machine) but found it to short for my hight and im 6 foot 3 ! what about a used minelab xterra (iv got a 305 and love it) and then you might have some dosh left for a probe. iv been told the xp machines are also very good, what ever you chose i hope you enjoy the hunt  Cheesy

The DFX has been my most sucessful machine, and even though I have the T2 and Etrac, it still finds more than the other two put together. But I do know the machine, like the back of my hand. It's still a good machine, if you learn how to use it.

If I start finding too much, I just switch to the Etrac Grin that will slow down my finds rate!

Depends on how complicated you want the machine to be, if you want something easy to use then maybe worth looking at the Golden Mask 1+, really straightforward, robust machine. The Mrs has got one and on many occasions it has outperformed my T2. It's very stable on trashy sites and doesn't miss a trick.
