    Oh I'm sure it COULD happen I'm just questioning if SRI would actually do that to DGX.

    It LOOKS nice. But, it IS from some Chinese company I never heard of. So, if someone asks me, I would suggest they look at it, as well as the Deep6 computer and the Peregrine. I would not like to really suggest which one to buy because I would not be willing to put my money where my mouth is and buy any of them, myself. None of them fit my needs.

    Some people would/will still buy the Teric, just because of the form factor. Even if the Peregrine did have AI. That is why I sold my Perdix AI and bought a second Teric. I strongly prefer a smaller, thinner size.

    If you are already certified to use Helium (as I gather you are, since your signature block mentions Helitrox), I cannot imagine buying a computer that does not support helium. The extra cost for a Perdix over a Peregrine, is not much more than the cost of a couple of trimix fills. I consider a dive computer to be a non-trivial investment. I would not want to invest in something that wouldn't meet all the needs I have now AND the needs I could anticipate (like more trimix diving at some point in the future, even if it's not right now).

    At the end of the day, Shearwater is a small company, run by individuals. I would absolutely not be surprised if they were not PISSED at their surprise being spoiled and put the smack down on DGX. The leaked pages made it pretty clear (in my opinion, of course) that DGX was all set to go live with taking orders yesterday at 3:00:01pm. The fact that they STILL do not have a page up for the Peregrine really, really makes me think it's because they are in Shearwater Timeout.

    That is certainly very possible. Just sharing that I have my doubts. But I could absolutely be wrong.

    Right, keep in mind the Deep6 is just a rebranded Crest CR-4 chinese computer as well. I mean Deep6 claims to have had some help in the development process, but I suspect 95% of it is just rebranding.

    The only people who saw that were a few dive nerds on this board.

    True but there were some screen captures that made it around.

    Why would a company that clearly intended to sell this computer (DGX) still not have it online for sale at this point? The most obvious reason is that they violated some agreement by releasing the information ahead of time and are now paying for that mistake. I think the manufacturers hands were kinda tied, if they did not punish this early release the next product release they have someone else would “make a mistake”. It sucks for DGX I’m sure. I guess we will now see how long they have to sit in the penalty box for this.

    Looking very possible. I can’t be right about EVERYTHING! :rofl3:

    I did just find this odd FAQ on the DGX site. Hummmmm. Me thinks you all are right.

    I would be willing to bet that DGX is the leading, or one of the top sellers, of Shearwater computers in the US
