I really like Suunto and what they have done regarding dive computers over the years. I have used one for many years but I have just swapped over to using a Uwatec (Scubapro) Galileo Sol computer.
I wanted to move away from the standard pressure gauge and go for the wireless air intergration facilty, one less hose to deal with and also the wireless facility will work out your actual bottom time from the reamining air left in your cylinder.

I tried many of the new Suunto's, with the conclusion I would go for the D9, but when I tested it on 2 dives the wireless air intergration was poor at the best of times. I was really disapointed, on both dives the signal was lost for long periods of the dive and after that I just didnt have the faith in the technology.

I then tried the Galileo Sol and it's an awesome computer, the wireless air intergration works like a dream, I can even install another transmitter onto my buddys first stage and also track their air consumption as well as mine from the wrist console. If your looking for a new computer I can highly recommend the Galileo Sol.
