    DW 6900G vs DW6900 display color??

    I was going to purchase a DW6900 model and wasn't sure which display color looked the nicest in person. I was considering the 6900G since in pics it appears to be neutral or beige in color. I wanted to try a different look from the standard "gray" display color. Does anyone have pics of both side by side that they could share? In some pics on the net the 6900G appears to have a greenish/gold hue. I would prefer the neutral/beige color over the gold tone. Can anyone confirm the actual display color in person?
    Thanks, Dave

    I just received the DW-6900G-1V in the mail today -- you can see the display in the first two pics in this post: Legit Check for DW 6900

    The DW6900G is indeed a greenish gold colour while the DW6900-1 is standard grey lcd.

    Here's an outdoors side by side in the same light to get an idea, hope this helps.

    Does anyone know how the backlight color of the DW6900G-1V compares to the DW6900-1V? Are they both blue backlights or is the DW6900G-1V more a green color due to the gold/beige display background? Pictures of both side by side with the backlights on would be appreciated!

    Just trying to revive a thread and get an answer and/or even a picture also. I have been interested in the Gold dw6900's but haven't seen any photos of the backlight. I read a recent post 1-2 weeks ago that someone picked up a DW6900G and all the eyes are gold, not the 2 green and large red color of the old DW6900G photos out on the web. Was wondering if anyone else has an "all gold" display DW6900G and what their backlight color is in comparison to a standard DW6900-1V. Same blue? or different?
