    So we can guess? Looks like a Divecomputer.eu to me. They currently do not sell to the US. List is $545 direct in the EU.

    @cerich :

    I’m both a fan and a customer, and have purchased a lot of gear from you. And I will continue to do so. I just want to let you and everyone know that, frankly, you can do whatever you want and I’m surprised to hear the menial, petty backlash and criticism on this forum. As a company you do not owe us any kind of information or feed back or product updates. And yet, you have been incredibly awesome in letting us in to the inner workings of your company and product production and your personal service has been awesome. All of this, and I haven’t yet commented on the high quality of the products. I think I have four or five of your first and second stage regulators. Two of my sons use them, and I also have them on a couple of set ups.

    Anyway, What does advertising mean? Or what’s the specific definition of this or that. Come on guys, we are better than this. He is one of our community and he really supports us. I’m impressed that he reaches out to us to get our information and our thoughts on products. That is so valuable we should not look this gift horse in the mouth.

    This is what the kids call “Viral Marketing”. Well, maybe those kids are all grown up now.

    I noticed that. They're an interesting option, and at $200 cheaper (at current EU/US exchange rate) than a Perdix, it could be a viable option. If Deep6 can offer them even cheaper, I'd probably pick one up just to give it a shakedown. To be honest, I haven't pursued one yet because there's no US support, but I'd be much more interested with a US representative available.

    The Eastern Europeans have some great manufacturing capabilities, especially the Poles and the Czech. They make good stuff.

    Actually, $300 less than a Perdix, but $145 more than I paid for my Nitek Q before they were discontinued. So, looks like we have lost an inexpensive backup or starter computer running Buhlmann ZH-L16C, and may have gained the least expensive, currently available computer with far more advanced capabilities. I guess we will see. Not much of a track record for the computer yet.

    IIRC, it has terrible battery time.

    Perdix is $850 at DGX, the divecomputer.eu computer is a little less than $650 US. Are you talking about the AI? Since this doesn't have AI, I compared it to the non-AI Perdix.

    We'll see how it all shakes out of they decide to go with it as a Deep6-branded computer. Unfortunately, I think it would have to be at a significantly lower price point if they want to compete against the Shearwater stuff.

    I see the Perdix at $849, I see the divecomputer.edu at 466 euros, $545. No big deal, the price Deep 6 will charge is not known.
