A machine you just flat did not like?

Yep.

I've had several over the years that I thought I would like and they fell out of favor. With some, I became aware of my mistake very quickly.
Others continued to fall down over time.

Some of my biggest gripes / deal killers -

Poor performance - didn't meet my expectations - for a very long time, i owned 1 detector that had to do it all for me. If that 1 detector was floundering, it was gone.

Poor design - If a detector was difficult or uncomfortable to use for prolonged period of time. . . it was gone.

Poor quality - Poor materials, workmanship, design, etc. It is couldn't hold up . . . it was gone.

The interface - At some point the detector needs to interface with us via audio and perhaps a visual target ID. It the detector and I aren't on the same page with communication . . . . it is gone.
