1.0 out of 5 stars DON'T BUY THIS! Misleading product description, overpriced, and incompatible "combo" components., November 26, 2013
By 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: GoPro HERO3+ Camera: Black Edition PLUS LCD touch BacPac - Combo Package (Electronics)
This "combo" includes the Hero 3+ Black (with slim housing) and LCD Touch Bacpac #ALCDB-301 (for Hero 2/3, so housing back doors are not compatible w/ the slim housing). It should have included the Bacpac #ALCDB-303 to be compatible. The description excluded this critical information, so I assumed that surely the "combo" would be compatible -- but it wasn't. Plus, if I had bought the camera separate from the LCD Bacpac kit, it would have been $50+ cheaper; I thought that the combo included an extra housing for the extra money (camera comes with slim housing, I thought that the Bacpac came with the older-style waterproof-to-60m housing but it doesn't. It just comes with the back doors for the older-style housing, which don't fit on the newer slim housing). Very disappointing to be misled and overcharged.

I'm sure this was just a mistake by the seller.

The included parts are listed... I see the lcd for sale around 80 bucks and the gopro 3+ black for 399, so 470 with free shipping seems ok... why 1 star it looks like you got a deal even though it was a small one...
