(Meant, GW-S5600. Oops)
Long time lurker, first time poster. I bought the Carbon Fiber G last Monday and I've been wearing it all week. I think it's great!
Obvious pluses off the top of my head;
Light but doesn't shift around. Seems set on the wrist and stays there.
Fits under a sleeve.
Like the negative display and the light is a cool green shade.
Great functions, like the 24 CDT and world time.
About the complaints over price, I'd easily figure this as a $150 watch and spent about $50 more on this one in Osaka (about 21,000 yen in total with a coupon I had). Considering the strap is nearly indestructable, I think its a good deal. And its shiny
Strap is stiffer than on other Gs I own (Mudman and a Gulfman my girlfriend has adopted/stolen) but I just wear it a bit looser than the others and have no problems. I'd definitely recommend it.
Will try to get a review and pictures up soon.
