What are you looking on getting... wireless, hose/console mounted, air integrated, non integrated ? Lot of choices and price points.

I do like the concept of the wireless ones but don't care for the cost and "what if" concerns. I do also like the hose connected with quick disconnect air integrated type. I currently have the Cobra 3 and find it works well for my needs within that price point. Preference , cost, and features is a factor.

I have had several wireless dive computers and no problem. There have been a lot of big companies buying up little companies. See if you can try them and buy what you like

I also worry about the "what if" regarding air integrated. I have friends that had repetitive problems with air integrated systems.

I was on a dive trip to little Cayman when I saw what a friend was diving, an Areis it was a computer with everything with a compass on top. Ive bought three of them since then.

i use an oceanic Proplus 2 hose connected and love it. I have 3 of them and only have trouble with one. It thinks its in the water and its not so its staying on running the battery down and one of the screws will not come out so I can remove the battery. Its about time to upgrade I think they are about 5 years old.

I like an Arias it's the way it's connected to the HP hose and easy to read. I have three.

I've used Tusa.   It is very conservative, so, I always feel safe.
