The Uwatec hokey puck 2G is the best current computer.
It can be set for PO2 up to 1.6
It does up to mixes
Unlike Oceanic /Aries computers it gives genuine deco information after the first dive.
It is the best computer for repetitive diving.
It is not overly conservative li8ke Sunto Computers.
Since it is a standard size hokey puck it can fit in non scubapro consoles.
When I have had any issues, scubapro replaced the unit without question.
I dive a lot; 200+ dives/year and have killed off all brands of computers. My TEC 2Gs (predecessor to this one) have held up better than oceanic (and clones), dive-rite and others.
It a bit more conservative than oceanics, very similar to dive-rite, less than sunto.
Oceanic (and clones) essentially shut-out diving if you go into deco after the first dive. They do not give you accurate deco info except on dive 1. The uwatec always gives accurate deco info. If it says 3 mintyues at 10 feet to clear, it means it.
