    GUYS!!! Need a quick help...

    Im litteraly holding my finger on the mouse about to pull the trigger on a GW9400 in green. Scared that the negative display is going to be a crap.

    Would you guys definitely advise me to go for the black with positive display instead? cuz i love the green one due to its color, but if it doesn't function, then, i might as well take the black one.

    what say you?

    Like most of the neg- displays, it isn’t that good for legibility. One solution, would be buy a pos+ too, swap the modules and sell the black neg-.

    Really think you'd have trouble selling a Rangeman? Lots of people out there surely would.
    Understand the worrying about taking them apart though it worries me the thought of changing a battery lol

    Point 2 is what I thought too. Took me a few days to get round to actually doing the work.
    Point 3: I couldn’t sell the the black neg- so had to buy a black pos+ too.

    There is another option, buy the black pos+ and get green strap and bezel. You’d lose the “Golden eye” though.

    Maybe I should have said, I couldn’t bring myself to sell the black neg-

    If you only want to buy one, and you intend to actually use the features, I'd get the black positive version. The Rangeman has a ton of information on the display, and IMO the negative display on the green one is not adequate to the task.

    Yes, I did this with the Rangeman I bought for my nephew. It's not as nice as the module swap, but it still looks pretty good. More importantly, my nephew was thrilled to receive it. Here it is next to my Gulfman GW-9110-1.

    Since I've been lusting after a GW9400-1 for close to a year, I'd recommend going black and don't look back!

    I loved the Green Neg display Ranger when I got it.
    Soon after I sold it because it was too hard to read.
