This review is from: Casio Men's G-Shock Mudman Watch G9000-1V (Watch)
I have owned and used this watch continuously for two and a half years and if I had my time again, I wouldn't buy it. I've paid over the odds for features that are either difficult to use (like pressing the red control buttons) or I don't need. I wanted a watch that was radio-controlled, had automatic illumination and was tough and accurate. Sadly, I have found all expectations lacking. The illuminator only works if you push the button very hard and even then you have to sustain the pressure otherwise it'll switch off. Regrettably, I didn't buy from Amazon (bought it from the famous high street catalogue shop) so the description was very skimpy.

The instruction booklet is tiny, hard to read and very confusing. I have tried several times to make adjustments using the aforementioned red buttons, but got so frustrated I gave up each time. If you have anything wrong with your hands or fingers such as arthritis, don't buy this watch because you'll find these red buttons impossible to press.

I have had Casio watches before (the simple, inexpensive ones) and have been satisfied with their performance, but I am afraid this watch is the exception.

Buyer says it's supposed to be radio-controlled - no,it's not.This isn't a radio controlled atomic model.

Dear D. Anderson,
Thank you for pointing this out. I was debating as to whether to leave this part of the description in or to remove it. The Casio G-shock Mudman GW-9010-1ER is certainly described as radio-controlled. But since my piece was about my two year old Mudman and not on this particular model, I decided to remove it in interests of fairness. Thanks again.
