    Men In Mat Black Trio Arrived

    My three Men In Mat Black G's arrived today. They are basically everything I hoped for. They are near the top of my favorites at the moment.

    Here's the photos and video I promised.




    You can view the video in a much larger resolution here (a few different pics too):

    Overall, I can't find anything wrong with them other than the inflated Japanese price. These are easily the most readable negative displays models I've ever seen. They have sort of a shiny mirrored look to them that really pops in most any lighting. The backlight didn't show up at all really when in direct sunlight, but it works well enough in low light conditions.

    I wish they would release some more of these. A Frogman one would be amazing. There doesn't seem to be any more coming out though.

    Oh Great.... I was having a good day till now....ha..ha...ha...

    Now I'm drooling all over my crisp white shirt....heh!

    I'm with you, I don't see a single thing wrong.... argh!

    Well maybe one thing.... the Riseman's not _on_ my wrist yet....

    OK, OK, all joking aside, do you have any idea when and where I might buy a Riseman?

    Thanks!

    Just based on looking at the video, and in comparison to my new GW-6900BC-1JF, I'd bet the displays on these three are very easy to read. I know that I wear my GW6900BC day in and day out, without a second thought. It's that good.

    Cheers...

    There's a seller on eBay that has all three of these for sale for very reasonable prices. They seem to be a good seller, but I haven't bought from them before. Store name: J-pop Store (aka ace_of_bicycle2004).

    Yes, these are very easy to read. This latest batch of negative LCDs that Casio has been putting on higher price models is indeed a great improvement in readability.
