    G-7900: Some Quick and Dirty Initial Shots

    Got back to the City from some time away upstate to find that Casio had delivered the G-7900 I ordered from gshock.com. Here are a few quick shots taken indoors before I headed out to start the day:



    The "start/stop" button is red -- all the others are gray:










    Here is a crude side by side comparison with a Raysman. The G-7900 seems slightly smaller -- and it is clearly less "thick". I didn't get a chance to make a comparison, but the closer analogy may be to the old 8400 series Mudman:

    I really like these not sure of the color yet . Amazon has them through Ibiz which is usually expensive at 108 wonder how long it will take for the price to come down

    Thanks for the pics. Didn't realize it's so large but I like the module.

    Wow great comparison shot....makes me wonder why with the success of the re-issued Riseman last year they didn't release it as a re-issued Raysman Just great from a marketing standpoint.

    And that $108 is really $136 -- there's an $18 shipping charge!

    You can do better than Amazon, I think, if you're willing to wait. There's an ebay seller with some of the colors for $105 ($90 plus $15 shipping). That's pretty close to Casio USA's price when shipping is factored in -- and that, of course, is when Casio USA has them in stock.

    I'm a little confused seems you're stating 108+18=136, isn't it actually 126? Still not better than 108 but it's not that much more.

    You're not confused. I just made a small arithmetical or typographical error! :oops:(Can't recall which -- I hope it was just a typo!) Of course, you're right, it is $126. $105 is still better -- but you're quite right, the gap is smaller.
