Great beach machine for a silly price, plus great Cscope service.
Move away from the trashy areas of dry sand to the wet sand and you should be fine.
A couple of videos you may find useful -
Hope these help.

Majority all say the basically the same. 1) Great machine for the beach especially the wet sand, 2) Fantastic value (I just looked at the MDF shop and it sure sounds it, but do I do enough beach detecting to justify another machine??) , 3) The downside is that you will dig a lot of iron.
Some of the threads also give good advice on how to get the best out of it and reduce the amount of iron / trash so if you do get one they will help you.
Sold my cs4pi two years ago mainly due to having no discrimination and having to dig all good signals. Have used my Deus many times on wet sand but always get the feeling that it is not showing all targets . Decided therefore, to buy another cs4pi and keep the Deus for pasture and the top of the beach dry sand only. Move away from the known trashy areas on the beach and use the P.I. machine on the wet areas----guess I will persevere with extra digging and lack of target identification but feel extra confident in not missing the really good targets. Check out the above poster videos ----buy a good sand scoop ! Moosy99
