Sony LCSU5 Soft Carrying Case for Camcorder
Sony LCSU5 Soft Carrying Case for Camcorder
Price: $12.18
10 used & new from $12.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Exactly what I needed for my camcorder., April 22, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I'm using this with my Sony CX405 camcorder, and it fits well; I have a spare battery and second microSD card, the USB cord and the wall wart in there; with all that it's very snug but do-able. Leave the wall wart and the USB cord in your luggage and it fits perfectly. The padding is not military grade but it's adequate - it'll protect the camera from abrasions and sharp corners while in my backpack or on my hip, and it'll prevent damage if I drop it from a moderate height - less than 5 feet, I'd estimate.

The case is well made, no loose threads, and it's built out of good quality tough cordura nylon with piping at the seams. The padding feels like 1/4" closed-cell polyethylene foam; that's good because it's very strong padding with less thickness, and resists penetration well; it's not as good for delicate mechanicals like apertures and optical image stabilization because it transmits more shock to the contents than softer foams. The inside is lined with nylon cloth, not the softest I've come across but tough. The zippers are well made and easy to operate. The shoulder strap is nylon webbing, about 1/2 inch wide; there's no shoulder padding. It's long enough that no normal human will find it too short. It's attachment to the case is quite strong and seems appropriate for the size of the case. The strap, unfortunately, cannot be removed without cutting it off.

1.0 out of 5 stars WHAT A WASTE OF MONEY, March 2, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
DO NOT BUY! WHAT A WASTE OF MONEY! I quickly purchased this, thinking I was buying sheet music for my daughter's next lesson; it was the only one available with 2-day Prime shipping at the time. HOWEVER! It's a TINY BOOKLET the size of 1/4 of a normal sheet of paper - the notation is not big enough to be readable at a normal music stand distance, and because they could only fit a few lines per page, it's not useful even if you up-size it to 8.5X11 with a photocopier; you're flipping pages every few notes. The 120 year old edition I got for free on imslp.org saved our bacon.....

1.0 out of 5 stars Defective, had to pay postage to return it., February 22, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The one I got was defective - the digitizer only worked on the top 1/4 of the screen. I thought I had ordered with Amazon Prime, but it turns out I have to pay the postage to return it; in the end I'm only going to get a few dollars back. I can't recommend anyone even consider buying anything from this company (TechOrbits).

Worked just fine, the low setting was perfect for working on an iPad screen replacement. The switch was a little sticky at first, but after turning off/on several times it seemed to improve.

3.0 out of 5 stars it had a lot more charcoal dust to wash out (took about a gallon of rinsing before the water was clear) and the flavor is not as, February 21, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It's not the same as the OEM part; it had a lot more charcoal dust to wash out (took about a gallon of rinsing before the water was clear) and the flavor is not as good. That said, it's not as bad as all that, and the water is at least BETTER tasting, if not perfect.

1.0 out of 5 stars They shipped a "second", went bad in 5 weeks., February 21, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
EDIT:
The screen failed about 5 weeks after installation, too late to return. The screen color went funny for a few seconds, then went to random colored bands, then it went black, all in about a minute. It loses all stars - what a waste of money. Find a different replacement screen.

ORIGINAL REVIEW:
Overall, 2.5/5 - due to two issues; the difficulty of installation took half a star and the actual quality of the product took another two stars off - it's pretty obvious that this is a "second", a part that was rejected by LG and should have been scrapped.

It was a significantly difficult install; I wouldn't recommend it for someone who has minimal experience or technical skill - I've replaced about a dozen screens and it was the second-most difficult install I can remember; the most difficult was an iPad 4 screen & digitizer. It was difficult because of the many bits, including Faraday tapes, that had to be transferred over, using a heat gun to soften the adhesive. IIRC there were no instructions with the replacement part, nor were there tools provided; I found a Youtube video to show me how.

The big issue was the quality of the part - it's pretty clear that this is an OEM screen that was rejected by LG quality control; the "LG" and logo at the bottom was covered with a patch of dark grey paint to obscure the LG name. The screen has several "hot spots" at the bottom and left side of the screen where it's too bright, and also light leakage along one side of the screen. That said, it's not completely unusable, just irritating - for non-critical use like email and so forth it's not a big deal. It's a problem when I am reading, watching a video or playing games; anything that is screen intensive and especially with a white background I notice the problem. It's usable enough that I will not have to replace the phone for a few months; good enough I guess.

1.0 out of 5 stars not 110" at all., April 12, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Be careful - I bought this item when it was listed under a different title; 110 inches is the circumference, not the diameter (as most other beanbags are listed). It's a very small beanbag; I'd estimate about 36", not suitable for anyone bigger than a small child - think "toddler". If that's what you want, fine.

I have no idea where they found such a small model..... she must be about 4 feet t
