    Off Topic post Is the negative display version of the GW-5000 easier to read than the GW-M5600BC...?

    Just wondering if any of you have both the GW-5000B and the GW-M5600BC
    negative display versions of these watches. Are they both the same in
    terms of how easy they are to read, esspecially in low light, or would you
    say the new GW-5000 is better..?

    Cheers,
    Rico.

    It's close but I would say the GW-5000B is improved and the display doesn't have the tendency to "disappear" like the BC one seems to sometimes. Most noticeably on the 5000 the RCVD indicator is now as clear as the rest of the display whereas it is always a bit faded on the BC.

    The PS indicator on 3063 module is actually driven the same frequency as the rest of the display, except the PS and CHG which are displayed nice and crisp. On positive display you can't even see the CHG indicator while off no matter under what angle you look at the display. How does the display on positive GW5000 look? Can you see segments while they are off?
