This computer is great. The computer is very easy to use and easy to read. The log feature is great for sitting in my lazyboy and logging my dives. It also has features that other computers that were recommended to me don't have, like backlighting and the ability to track TWO gases. The other recommeded ONE gas computers were also significantly more expensive. I'm very happy with this computer. This one was for me and I bought a console model for my wife.
Great Computer but Very Conservative
This is a great computer for the money. It is intuitive, has plenty of features including EAN and critical data is clearly displayed. The only problem is that even in the most liberal of its three settings it is extremely conservative. On one particular dive to 100' it put me into deco when my primary computer (Aeris Atmos ai, which is known to be liberal) still gave me plenty of bottom time. That being said its difficult to fault a dive computer for being too conservative as you will likely never get yourself into trouble using the Archimede II so long as you have ample gas supply to abide by its schedule of recommended deco stops. For the price, its a tough act to beat.
I bought this a day before going to Bonaire and loved it easy to operate,and read. had no problems I would highly recommend this for a new or experienced diver.
