roybassist Posted January 26, 2008 Share Posted January 26, 2008 I've seen posts from a few people saying that they thought the screen of the Colorado wasn't as bright as the screen on the 60C/76C series, some of them saying they think they might have to run the backlight more on the Colorado. What doesn't quite add up for me, though, is that if it were that bad, it seems like there would have been a lot more comments about it by now. I'm considering whether to buy a Colorado, and this is a potential make-or-break issue for me. I currently own a 76CS. I know the screen on the Colorado is bigger and higher res than the one used in the 60/76 series; but if the brightness of the Colorado screen isn't at least comparable to the 60/76 screens, I don't think I want one. I am mostly concerned with outdoor daylight conditions, where I've never needed the backlight on my 76CS. If the Colorado screen is ok under those conditions, I think I would be satisfied with it. Since my interest is in its outdoor performance, going to a store and looking at it indoors probably wouldn't be much help. I would really appreciate hearing from more people who have both the Colorado and a 60/76 series unit regarding the comparative brightness of the screens. Any other comments regarding the usability screen would be welcome. Side-by-side comparison photos with a description of the ambient lighting conditions would probably be really helpful. Many thanks!
