5.0 out of 5 stars A recommended favourite!, 10 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A superb addition to the G-Shock range of watches. The Mudman has a generous feature set, with the main selling points being the prominent digital compass, moon phase graph and my buying decider, the thermometer.
A clear and precise display, showing the time, date and day information, as well as the usual world time, stop watch, timer, DST, tone mute and five alarm variations.
I like the attention to detail in G-Shocks, especially with regard to functionality and presentation. The GW9300's solar capability is a case in point, with its power save option and level indicator display. Great stuff! The 45 degree auto back light is a nice little touch too.
Not too excited about the inclusion of the compass and moon data, having the minimum of usage. However, they certainly don't detract from the watches overall appeal, as the face has excellent aesthetics.
The omission of 'Multi-band 6' (Waveceptor), is an odd one and in contradiction to other G-Shocks in the range, that incorporate this cool feature at half the price!!
Despite its moderate size and chunky looks, the G-Shock is comfortable and light to wear and doesn't feel bulky or intrusive for day to day use. For a smaller compact design, with equal wearable qualities, see the GW9110!
Typical of Casio's G-Shock heritage, quality of materials and construction are a high priority here. However, testing the durability or 'toughness' of the watch, with the use of a baseball bat or dropping it from a great height, only confirms the inane stupidity and boredom threshold of its owner. Use it, don't abuse it!
Take time to read the instruction booklet of 100 pages of English. Once mastered, navigation around the watch is quite straightforward and logical.
To sum up then. It's hard to fault the Mudman GW9300, and is one of my favourites to date. It's a high tech', no nonsense, superb quality time piece, that deserves high praise, and for that reason it's highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A compact winner!, 6 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A welcome and possibly alternative choice in the G-Shock line-up. Has good looks, is well made, with a good feature set. A compact diametric size, with titanium components, add up to a sure fire winner.
Has a nice clear display, showing the important information for day to day wear. The usual stop watch, timer, world time and alarm variations are included.
I like the additions of the 'multi band 6' (Waveceptor) feature, as well as the nice little touches, such as the titanium parts, auto back light, mute tone, and the fact it has a solar panel incorporating the ingenious power save function and its battery power state indicator. All add to its appeal for me.
Not all that sure of the tide and moon functions, nor does the 10th of a second indicator appeal that much. If they're something that you need in a watch, then go for it. Otherwise, if you can live with and ignore them, its no big deal.
Very comfortable and light to wear. Operation is easy and straightforward, with the instruction booklet covering 100 pages of easy to digest English.
Quality and construction of materials are high, although testing the resilience and durability of the watch by throwing it out of the bedroom window or running over it with your daddy's car is a little bit silly. Wearing it day to day and for activities suited to its use, will enable it to serve you well enough.
To sum up then. A great all rounder in style, quality and value, with the necessary features to keep most of us happy. Its worthy of serious consideration and therefore highly recommended.

As expected from Lastolite. A solid all metal accessory, that works well. Highly recommended! Good value too for under £20, but shop around for second hand deals.

3.0 out of 5 stars New update is disappointing, 27 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Lastolite make great quality products, but their latest offering, which enables larger hot shoe fitting is somewhat of a mixed offering.
I love the functionality and flexibility that the hot shoe offers. It's easy to use and adjust, when assembling an ezybox set up. Unfortunately, Lastolite have down graded from metal, as was the case with the old hot shoe, to plastic. Any tightening or adjustments don't instil confidence. It lacks any rigidity, so the use of smaller ezyboxes is recommended.
It's also expensive to buy. However, if you need one, it's the only option. Shop around and look out for second hand deals.
