    hi dingosrun,

    interesting picture indeed. the 90 looks a bit smaller then the 80, but nevertheless still huge. one thing I always asked me you can answer me for sure: is the adjust button on the 90 better to access then on the 80? because thats really about the only thing I don't like on the 80, other than that its an outstanding watch. if you dont have a bit longer fingernails or some pointed thing to push, its a real pain in the a** to do so. the adjust button of the 90 looks larger and should therefore better accessable I presume?



    regards, holger

    I totally agree with Holger's observation of the adjust button. That thing really is a royal pain to depress. The light button too now that I think about it. Other than that, I really love the PRG-80.

    Ha ha, you guys are right -- it's about the ONLY thing that annoys me somewhat, it's pretty hard to press the Adjust button on the 80. Still, the color scheme on the 80YT and the comfortable bracelet totally rock so I don't care too much about that B-)

    As for the light button, I never found it too hard to press since it's a bit higher up and easy to find in the dark because of its texture... but that's just me.

    the adjust button is easier on the prg 90 but it is the same height as the light button and can get confusing with which button you are pressing at night
    and i do like the prg 80 as it is a more bulky model with large lines and a mean look

    This is what I like about the PRG80. The uneven height of the buttons is a plus for me.

    i have both prg 80 and 90 watches.i guess that prg 80 adjust button though a bit difficult to find and press is ok with me,as adjust button is hardly used once you have set the time etc, also the light button is easier to access than adjust .
    also i think that prg 80 compass baro and altimeter buttons are easier to press than in prg 90 ,as prg 90 button are a bit smaller and difficult to press,but as for adjust button it may be a bit easier to press in prg 90 then 80.
    but still both prg 80 and 90 are real great watches ,i like them best among all my casio watches.
