    I lost my 2n a couple of months ago, so panicked and bought a 3 a few days later. Only had it two days, and the mate who borrowed my suit phoned up to say my 2n was sitting in the foot pocket, when he went to put the suit on. Doh! The 3 was returned, but naturally I had a play cos I was to be getting it wet soon enough. It is a lovely piece, but the only things I wasn't sure of were the buttons getting scratched and going powdery if the anodising got marked. (So would of preferred the pressure sensors of the 2n). And the main screen having (some) very small text on. The rest of it looked looked gorgeous. I am now looking for a spare 2n if anyone knows of one?

    Ooooo......
    I've got an OSTC3.
    A fool and his money... Yes I know.

    It's slightly smaller than I expected but the buttons are like I hoped so it's really four buttons if I play it right.
    Love the definition on the screen.

    Not sure I like the bungie but until I try it in a drysuit with gloves on who knows...
    Helium, because I'm worth it.
    Waterboarding at Guantanamo Bay sounded like a radical holiday opportunity until I looked it up.

    I have been using the 3 since it came out and love it. My old DR5 with Multideco tends to be backup now :-)

    I must be the only person who isn't yet convinced about the OSTC3. I've not had it long, got it after my Mk II died. I love the low profile, but I find the screen less well laid out, the bungee mount is more of a faff, and the buttons much less responsive compared to the previous style. I often find that I have to press the right hand button several times before it reacts. Maybe it's me, maybe it's wearing in, or maybe it's just not making contact correctly.
