    Loosing faith in Gshock...

    How is it possible of all 3 Casio wathes I currently own, the two cheapest ones (around $50 each) lost 4 seconds in 2 months, while my expensive G7900-2D gained 40 seconds over the two months since the time I calibrated it?

    Face palm all you want. The lesson my Casios have taught me is, the best things in life don't cost that much. Probably why a $1k Fujitsu laptop is better than a $3K Panasonic Toughbook...

    Anyways, I have the right to be pissed after I spent $100 and got a crap watch...

    Exactly. MacBooks and GShocks should get married. Meanwhile, I will be sticking to PCs and dead-acurrate cheap time pieces in the near future...

    Isn't there one with Picard and Riker doing the face palm?

    Well, isn't it listed in the specifications that the accuracy is +/-15 sec per month? How about get a nice atomic G-Shock?

    So sell it and get another one if you think you got an exceptionally bad quartz. Or return it under warranty. But why be miserable about it? I wouldn't say the best things necessarily "don't cost much". But you are right that you can get things that are good enough for little money, and occasionally expensive things are more trouble than they are worth. But the problem here, as with your previous thread is: generalization. Don't overgeneralize, if one watch is bad then all of them must be bad... it is bad logic.
