We are very dedicated to quality control and our staff read every review. But please don't wait to write a review if you have a problem with any aspect of your order.

The videos are fast paced to keep them compact, about one to three minutes in length with all playback controls always available during viewing. Lisa, our professional photographer on staff at DGX, is also a technical diver and she produces all our videos in-house in order to provide the most accurate content.
