I am very interested in your setup, and would appreciate very much if you could contact me (email ljsegil@aol.com). In particular, have you had any sort of trouble with the electronics or any other aspect of the unit? What are you planning for the D2x? Can you go into more detail concerning the accessories and ports? Has the unit ever been serviced?
Anyway, I'd appreciate any light you can shed.

Interested but just two questions:

1. Bouyancy

I tried the housing in the Bahamas two years ago and felt that with the dome port that it was extremely bouyant and tended to want to face up. What modifications have you done to it to make it less bouyand and more neutral?

2. Battery drain

It also seems that once the camera is attached to the housing the battery is continually drained (i.e. until the camera is removed the camera has to stay on). How long have you been able to keep the camera going before having to change batteries (6 hours etc.)? This is relevant because in addition to battery drain from taking pictures there is apparently a battery drain from the electronics of the housing - so in order to avoid the battery dying in the middle of the dive do you change batteries on everydive?

I sold the Titan housing.

To reply to your questions:
I never had bouancy problems.
The battery problem is one you have to live with. I was usually able to do 2 dives without changing batteries if the time between dives is less than 3-4hours.
I think this is ok if you have a spare batterie at hand. You probably need to change flashcards anyway.

I made four dives a day, sometimes five on the same battery with my Titan housing. The camera goes into sleep mode when sitting idle, so it conserves power even though it is on. I only change batteries after each day of diving unless I need to swap CF cards, then I slip in a fresh one just in case.
