Hi all ,
you may remember me from such years as 2008 when I had a DW-9000 G-Shock and posted here now and again. Anyway I'm back for a large portion of your finest home-baked advice please.
I'm looking at the watches G-7800-1ER and G-7800B-1ER as my sports watch and day-to-day wearer. I feel like a noob for asking but what is the negative display like on the G-7800B-1ER compared to positive display of the G-7800-1ER?
I gather that negative displays are less legible in low lighting conditions and fine in daylight conditions, but have also read that Casio have made some developments/improvements in the more modern negative display technology. Furthermore, the module used in the watch has adjustable contrast.
To get to the point, will there be a great different in legibility between the two watches, considering the fact that the contrast can be adjusted for both? With me, little niggles tend to annoy me continually until I eventually flip out and then flip the watch (a whole lotta flippin' goin' on), so I am not sure if I can tolerate any significant drawbacks of the negative display.
What I can say is I prefer the negative display version (G-7800B-1ER) due to its all black bezel and black design. The G-7800-1ER is still a mighty fine looking Casio though!
Thank you, I don't mean to pose such noobien questions, but it will probably help someone else down the line. Any experience from owners of either/both model/s is really appreciated! :thanks
