If you are just looking for a recreational dive computer that's Nitrox capable I really like my Oceanic ProPlus 2. Especially with my aging eyes the display is super easy to read. The menus are intuitive and it's easy to change settings on the fly if you are so inclined. If you want multi-gas capability this computer does not do that.

I've never had one "wig out" on me as one other poster noted. And I also echo the comments regarding the super-conservatism of Suunto. My wife dives a Cobra 2 and I hate that bloody thing. The menus are not intuitive and it will be 5 - 10 minutes more conservative on a 60 - 80 foot dive than my Oceanics.
