Trying to keep it on the cheaper side.

The one thing you should keep in mind you may not plan on getting in water with what ever detector you choose but you cannot predict mother nature so you want one that is at the very least rain proof which the GM 1000 is also the Legend and Equinox both are, not sure about any of the others that were listed also the Xterra 705 is not, being as to how you said you want to hike with your detector also you should consider one that collapses down fairly compact which the Legend does and the ORX that jmaclen suggested the GM 1000 can be broke down pretty compact
