    Bought three Gs in three days. But there are probs with my new Gs...

    After more than two years not buying any new Gs, I got bitten by the bug again and bought three Gs in three days. A negative GD350, a G7900A-4 and a G7900MS-1. All from the same shop. This shop is like the mecca for Gs. Many special editions from as far back as a decade ago for sale. The highlight was finding the 7900MS on display. Been looking for a MS since i started buying Gs again two years ago.

    So the prob is with the red G7900A-4. The digits seem a bit lighter and less legible compared to the 7900MS. The difference is not very obvious but it bugs me. Those of u that own both 7900 models, do u see difference in legibility ?

    Another prob is the EL on the 7900MS looks less brighter compared to the 7900A-4. The 7900MS is much older than the A-4 and might have been on display for a decade before i bought it. Could that be a reason why the EL is not as bright ?

    Appreciate your feedback on this.

    In comparison between my olive G-7900 and my black G-7900MS, the digits on the olive one always appear to be a liitle more crisp. On the MS they seem just a bit washed out, it is a very subtle effect but noticable. Regarding the backlight, both appear to have the same brightness, in your case, the battery might be just a bit drained resulting in less brightness, I woild drop in a new CR2025 and see what happens.

    It's the opposite for my 7900s. The digits in the MS looks more crisp while the digits in the A-4 appear washed out. I wonder if it's a QC issue over the years as the manufactured date between my two 7900s could possibly be years apart.

    turn it on a (very) slightly diff. angle and more than likely it will be darker. also doesnt the -3 have a slight greenish tint to the background? that could prob course a variation as well.
    tho unless you plan on wearing them side by side, i doubt its very noticeable.
