Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Powerful Receive/Transmit Range Gotta love having everyone on the team line up and test the range of their beacons. At 60m, a few of us were still receiving the test signal. At 70m, it was just me with the DSP Pro. And it went out a few more meters still. When on transmit, it consistently gave out the strongest signal during search practice. The 3-way antenna results in quick and accurate search results. Find your first buried subject, mark it, and move on quickly to the next one. Two thumbs up. Easy to use. Great battery life. And as far as I have experienced, the strongest send/receive capability of new beacons by several meters.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Beacon! I've been playing with this quite a bit the past week. It has great range, is very easy to use, and great for multiple burials. My one issue is the automatic send-to-recieve feature. By default, this is deactivated. Pieps encourages you to buy the backup transceiver (probably the best option). But if you don't want to do that you can deactivate it online, but need the data cord. I haven't be able to find one yet. I wish the default setting was to automatically switch from send to receive in the event the searcher is buried by a second slide.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great product just like the rest... i think this device probably works as good as any of the new transcievers on the market.. that being said i want to help with product development by contributing my two cents. when in search mode there is not positive locking position, so switch can "float" back and forth switching transciever between search and send or even accidentally lock back into the positive position of send. could complicate certain senarios... and what is with the 3 strap adjustability on the shoulder portion of the harness? digital processor breaks down under close proximity multi-burials, seems like they all do? great product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Beacon I was trying to decide between this and the S1+. I ended up going with this one for several reasons. I also wanna clear up some misconceptions. 1. I thought it might be cheap plastic. Was surprised that is was very sturdy, very impressed. 2. The lock button people said was hard to operate with gloves on...this is false. Really easy to use. You just need to compress it. 3. The harness is cool, you can keep in one while bringing the beacon away from the body. 4. Has a bigger range than the S1+. Also has the inclometer. Also has "smart antennas" All in all, very satisfied and helps comfort me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best I've used. Rescue function: It works great. The multi-burial scenario flagging works better than others I have tried. Also, it plays some games on the transmitter side to reduce signal overlap, and improve transmission if it detects interference. It seems reliable so far, and the range is the best of the newer digital transceivers I have used. Other: I really like the ability to test the frequency of other transceivers, and I am looking forward to picking up the compatible dog-collar when it is back in stock. Also, it is fairly small and light, and the harness works well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Threee Steps Forward, One Step Back So, I've been using Pieps beacons since they first released the 3-antenna DSP back in 2005 or 2006. I'll say they are still my favorite beacon on the market. So, this fall when I unpacked my yellow DSP and noticed a crack in the face plate, there really wasn't an option; I'd buy another Pieps. Three Steps Forward: -Faster processor with incredible distance. I always felt that my Pieps was one of the faster beacons out there but this new model definitely steps it up a notch. The beacon is crisp, fast, and accurate. -Better Battery Efficiency: Not that the old Pieps model was inefficient, but I definitely notice that the new model is much more so. I'm not needing to change batteries near as much. I generally sue my beacon 5+ days a week, so I tend to burn through batteries. -Best Harness Ever: As a professional I have the opportunity to use most of the beacons on the market. I often feel like the harness is an after thought by the design team. This is the first harness I actually like and enjoy using. The attention to detail is noticeable. One Step Back: -Why BD decided to take the battery read out from a number to a 3-bar icon, I'll never know. Seems like a step in the wrong direction to me, and away form the industry standard of other beacon manufactures. Pro vs Sport: Unless you need to be able to test signal drift from other beacons... save your self the money and buy the Sport. Its an awesome beacon and one of the least expensive 3-antenna beacons onto he market.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Avalanche Beacon Compact, intuitive, fast, detailed and easy to use. Had a Tracker 2 before this beacon. Tracker 2 is great for ease of use but after getting comfortable with it and understanding the Tracker 2 I wanted to know more details of the "big picture" of an avalanche rescue. The Peips DSP Pro gave me that ability to see more of what was going on and be even more confident during a search. Peips DSP Pro nailed it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best beacon I have ever owned... Having used a few beacons over the years, this one is by far the best. Fast, super easy to figure out how to use, extra long battery life, slope angle checker are some of the awesome characteristics of this unit. Other awesome features not to be forgotten is the fast processor, the 60m range, the scan the slope feature to see how many and how far each beacon is… Finding, eliminating the signal of a beacon for multi-burrials… Many awesome features that are very easy to use!
