I am digging the left and middle ones. I do not have a negative display Casio G-Shock, so I am leaning towards the middle one. Plus, it looks stealthy.

Looks as though there's not that much interest in this particular model. I feel that the analogue hour and seconds hand look really cool. I have never owned a Watch with a negative display, hence my interest in the Black or the Red version.

I can't wait to see how the light works with this watch. The big front button for the light makes it perfect for working in the dark, I just hope it does a good job lighting the face of the watch. I'm excited to get the version with the positive display.

I am sure that it must have been covered here before, but what's the difference and benefits of either the positive or the negative display?

For me it is just easier to see the positive display in general. There are a few negative displays that are easy to see, but mostly they are difficult in my experience. So I tend to favor positive displays.

My fellow Americans ;-), the GA-700's available now in Macy's for $99. That's not all, some Macy's are having a 25% off pre-sale going on, amazing price for a brand new released watch!

For me, target has been acquired! ;-) But not yet fully captured, due to the stupid nature of pre-sale where you have to pick it up in a later day. But here's a little bit of intel about the LED light.

The watch has a single LED light just off center to the left of the 6 o'clock marker. It's white in color, and illuminates the watch face only. There is no backlight for the digital LCD.

give eBay a week or 2 and you'll probably get it for $60. STILL not doing it for me, especially with the back light info.

Well, it's a matter of personal taste I guess. Like I can't take the look of GA-110, no matter how cheap it is. ;-) The GA-100 looks acceptable to me, but I don't like how the LCD's split left and right.

For others, keep in mind that the GA-700's a "lower end" ana-digi G-Shock that's trying to copy some of the looks of Rangeman and Mudmaster. For those already have the Rangeman and/or the Mudmaster, this one's ho-hum of course. ;-) The quality of material is up to par for a G in this price range. And like most other GA series G's it's geared more toward style than function, such as it has only a 60min timer! Will provide more photos and review when I actually get my hands on the watch.

My GA-100 has a 24 hour countdown timer. I wish all of the ana-digis had this.

I know, it's kind of going reverse in technology. ;-)

That's why I said "for me", I didn't say don't buy it.
It's all personal taste, as I love 110's, I have 10-11 of them :) and as I said earlier, I could change my mind. At first I hated the G-5500, now wish I had one. The GA-150 I thought was not great but I had only seen it in black, then I saw it in white with blue face and bought it immediately. This is why we love G's ...variety~
