High quality Panasonic VW-VBG260(T) battery equivalent to the original manufactured version (non OEM). Advance Li-ion technology improved energy density. Compact and high-performance for your standard use.
Pros:Fits the panasonic camcorder perfectly at a much more reasonable price than panasonic battery
Cons:Does not show remaining time left to record but this is a back-up battery.
Shipped in a soft pack which allowed enough impact to dent the corner of the battery. Fortunately it does still work just the same and magical elements are not leaking out.
Other Thoughts:I can only spend good words for Dinodirect.com. Their customer service is great, in particular I was in contact with Dinodirect, I asked him a lot of questions because I like to know things in detail and he always replied very kindly. I'm sure many other salesmen wouldn't have been this patient, I emailed him at least 30 times during the whole process. I could get my product as customized as I wanted it to be. And it's a first class product, it works like a charm. In short, awesome product, awesome support.
Other Thoughts:I've been shopping with Dinodirect.com for a long time for business as well as personal purchases and rarely have problems with them. Delivery speed is excellent as well as the accuracy of the online tracking. Customer Service is wonderful and do their best to resolve problems when they happen which is only occasionally. I recommend Dinodirect.com to all my friends and co-workers. When I want something right away, I look on their site first before I shop around, and most of the time I return to purchase what I want.
Other Thoughts:I've been a customer of dinodirect for a couple of months. I live in N. California so shipping and delivery is quick and combined with transparent communication (order acceptance, shipping notice etc) it makes for a wonderful customer experience. This order was just another positive experience. I've never tried to replace or refund an item so can't comment on that.
Other Thoughts:They had fantastic customer service with domestic employees so they were completely understandable and friendly. Took the item I ordered a little longer than I would have liked to shipped, but that was because it was over-ordered because of a price mistake, coupled with the fact that their online inventory is not live with their warehouse. They honored their mistake which gives them a huge thumbs up. Just one piece of advice if you are a potential buyer... just register when you order. If you do not register, you cannot track your order online "for security purposes." Otherwise, their online support is detailed and updated like most other large sites.
