Well, after enduring Amazon's ridiculously long free shipping wait time, the G7700 arrived yesterday afternoon. I won't bore you with all the features it has (a lot). You can watch DougFNJ's Youtube review for that (Not the boredom--the features.)
This is a really nice G. I like the looks a lot. It's very modern, and the brushed metal accents around the bezel and the illumination button are IMHO much nicer than the shiny chrome accents of other models. This is one of the few Gs with a brushed metal illumination button that I know of other than the Riseman.
Even my wife happily approves of this one, which is saying something.
The fit is very comfortable and the strap is nice, too.
Here's a quick* pic.
In real life the white thing at the bottom that houses the LED flashers and indicators for alarms, mute, etc. is much less noticeable than in pictures. The indicators are also really really tiny, and hard to see which is kind of a bummer. Fortunately, aside from button mute, they are kind of redundant as there are definite steps in toggling between "ON" and "OFF" on the main display for the various alarms, hourly chime, etc.
*By quick pic I mean I have a cheap camera and am not a good photographer, but I'll say it was quick to make you think that I'm better than I am, but just snapped this one on the fly. I also will absolutely not mention that I took like 12 shots just to get this one.
