View Poll Results: Which computer would you choose???
If you're diving CCRs it's either HS Explorer or DeltaP VR3. Both are available with online ppO2 calculation. The Dive Rite is a good computer with the best customer service, but calculates only fO2. OMS has a miserable reputation where the VR3 is concerned, DeltaP is much better. So unless your willing to get it straight from Europe, either HS or Dive Rite's the way to go. The HS lets you choose different algorithms, which can be handy as you can arrange your deco profile around your specific dive, and has by far the best display of any dive computer I've seen.
Does anyone have pricing info for the Nitek He yet? Just wondering what the wallet hit will be. If the He gets anywhere near the same reviews I have seen for the Nitek 3 it will be a hit. Plus I think it supports the Dive Voyager software package that Dive Rite purchased last year which means you can plan the dive, download the plan to the computer and cut backup tables. I know the HS/Abyss Explorer has this function as well but I have a feeling the Nitek will be at a lower price point.
That price is rediculous, I've seen them for around $1500 (without CCR link, with it the price is about right).
Contact Madmole above, he has some place that carries them for less than $1500. He's the guy to talk to about that computer.
How to work them, where to get them, etc.
Divers Supply said $750ish for the Dive-Rite.I played with it for 1/2 an hour.Seemed intuitive and logical in it's set-up .I got eveything doe and set without a manual.Should be easier with one.PO2 alarm seems to only have 1.4 or 1.6 as setpoints .I'll wait another year it looks like.At least my brain won't start rotting yet
