    582 dives in 4 years on my Perdix non Ai. Only drama was a screen failure during the first year, which was repaired under warranty.

    Other than the battery issue, Teric has a total of 11 days total with no issues and even when the battery was fast draining it worked fine only requiring more frequent charging.

    Roughly 600 dives on my Predator to max depth of 170 ft or so with multiple dives in 38F temps. No issues other than when they first came out there was a battery door problem that was fixed by replacing the cap they sent me at no charge.
    2 Perdixes each with nearly 300 dives each on them including students who used them in classes. Only issue was I left a battery in and it leaked. The US service center repaired it under warranty. That was because it wasn't evident looking in that the battery had leaked but when opened up it was clear it had.
    Do not store them with batteries installed! If using SAFT batteries, use only genuine ones. They are stamped made in France and have a date code. The copies are made in China and the UK and are junk.

    Perdix AI in service since April 2017. 200 dives. No issues. I replace the transmitter battery frequently to keep the signal at optimum strength.

    hit or miss....

    Petrel1 crapped at 20 dives, but being at -25F might have been a contributing factor. SW came to the plate covering the parts while I covered the labor as the repair work was through their contract repair center here in the USA (so I didn't expect him to eat that cost).

    No issues with my Pedrix AI, but only maybe 40 dives....

    full confidence!

    (I have had both good and bad experiences with other brands in the past, and I am more than impressed with the support from SW - that is where it makes a difference. Others have been abysmal...)
