I have owned several Casio Watches over the years, I just had a MT-G fail after at least 8 years of service. The specs looked good on this one, had all the features I wanted but less cost than the G-Shock.
Had problems with the watch within the first month. The wrist band retaining pin came off one day and was very difficult to put back on, the rubber/plastic joint where the metal band meets the watch is not sturdy.
Next problem was the watch would start to reset itself with the push of buttons. I opened the watch to find that there was moisture getting past the seal,even though I have never submerged the watch only hand washing. I dried out the watch and it seemed to work fine for a while but then started randomly resetting itself when buttons were pushed.
I think that the problems with the reset and light not working are due to moisture getting into the watch. Just 8 months after buying the watch the display will no longer work. Battery is still good, light on watch illuminates, and it will beep when buttons are pressed.
Just replaced the watch with another G-Shock MT-G, wish I would have not wasted the $45 and just bought another G-Shock the first time.
