The Dive rite Ntiek Duo looks like good value. Anyone have any opinions on it ?

Mixed gas, like trimix? or mixed gas like nitrox? Since they're going to be different computers. Also do you want wrist or console? Air integrated or non? Some more information will help us help you.

Shane,

I'm looking for Nitrox only, not trimix, and a wrist mount. Air integrated is not a priority for me .... but I would not rule one out that was air integrated.

Thanks
John

Do a search on "Nitrox Computer" as was eluded to "mixed gas" usually means trimix. Suunto, Oceanic, and Aries seem to be the more popular.

Thanks ... maybe multiple gas is a better way of describing it. I am after a computer that will allow one bottom mix, and one or two deco mixes.

A search on "Nitrox computer" brings up a lot that do Nitrox but only one mix.

okay now you are getting there. Suunto has several as does NiTek, Aries, VR3, Oceanic.

I am a Suunto fan and use a Vytec DS which allows three mixes. Some do not like their "conservativeness" - does not bother me. For deco I use it at 50% which gives me descent deco times that match my cut tables.

The Tusa IQ-700 has that functionality as well.

I second the Tusa IQ-700 / Dive Rite Duo (Same computer) I also think it is sold as an Apeks model...

Large clear display and easy to operate.

Tusa has the best warranty on that unit... but the tusa / dive rite / whatever... is actually a seiko computer with different names on it - and will only do 2 gasses. If you want 3, then you are into an Atom or VT3.
