    Reverse Lcd Purpose

    Hi guys..
    I saw many G around the web ....
    They are all gorgeus...
    and i am ready to buy one.....
    so...
    i like the most dw5600 model
    (not tough solar, the standard model)but...
    now i have seen a model with the reverse lcd....
    it's better than the original lcd?
    it's the same upside-down?
    in the night it can be seen better than the other?
    If you have some pics on wrist or nightshot please
    show it to me thanks......
    Let me know something please...
    i am thinking of buying a G but till now i cannot decide..

    i'm thinking about the first one...
    or maybe one with reverse lcd...

    Hi Elcazo,

    Welcome to our G-Shock forum The reverse display more or less are there for the cool factor. It just looks very good. The display is a bit harder to read under specific ircumstances. For instance I finf tit difficult to read while driving a car under dim light. I think that is also a moment you better watch the road than thinking about what time it is probably

    I love negative displays. On the newer models the digits are nice and sharp.

    I have a colleague here wearing a new Suunto Observer with negative display. Those digits are very sharp under angles I noticed.

    Cheers,

    Sjors

    Casio is improving their negative display models so if you buy one of those newer than than the green Mudman it should be fine.

    Re: Reverse Lcd Purpose

    it just looks cool to me

    and i think the EL of reverse LCD is easier to the eye in the dark (light up the digit on a black background)

    and so far i only have reverse LCD with solar cause i have light up the EL for easy reading any time

    one of the ease to read reversed LCD is the GW810D (that's the one i have).

    yes guys...
    maybe only under direct ray of sun light it will be less legible
    than a traditional display.....
    you agree?...

    In general terms yes... how bad would it be it depends on the model... negarive display on G-8000 for example was down right horable under direct sunlight.. MTG-9xx (one with gold digits, forgot the exact number now) was NEVER hard to read... as for 5600 I don't know since I never had that model with negative display but looking forward to see one in the stores...
