        This is a great case. It protects the monitor while in transit and us extremely compact. While carrying by the top handle, I've noticed the top of the case pulling away from the monitor causing it to stretch out of fit. The top ridge of the case needs to be stiff to support the weight of the monitor while being carried. The side sun flaps are weird and need to go the other way but the zippers are not set-up for switching the side flaps. Overall, I love the case, a couple improvements and it's awesome!

        Sturdy and compact, and as with all PortaBrace products, it fits the item it's made for perfectly. I love the fact that you can use it to safely prop up the monitor on a table near the cameraperson. Two things I wish it had: Setup instructions (I had to figure it out blindly, and I still feel like I might be missing something!), and a bigger pocket that would hold cables and adapters (I can just barely fit the power cable in there, but will have to put together a separate cable bag to go with it, making it a lot less convenient).

        Not good for C-stand use

        Comments about Porta Brace MO-LH1700 Flat Screen Monitor Case (Signature Blue):

        I bought this to use on film sets, where the monitor typically gets mounted on a C-stand using a baby pin VESA mount. Unfortunately, this case does not work well at all in that configuration. I had to cut a hole in the fabric for the pin to stick through, and even then, I had to remove the pin at the end of each day in order to zip up the case.
        If you want to use the monitor on a tabletop, this would be a great bag, but in that case, I don't know why you would need it to be so rugged.
        Also — the top and side flaps are incredibly floppy, forcing the viewer to always keep a hand on it in order to see the picture.
        On the bright side, this provides great protection in light rain. But I recommend the FSI bag instead.

        Comments about Porta Brace MO-LH1700 Flat Screen Monitor Case (Signature Blue):

        If you travel with the Panasonic LH-1710 LCD monitor, keeping it protected from the elements and general transportation bumps and scrapes can be a challenge. That's where the Porta-Brace MO-LH1700 Flat Screen Monitor case comes in. The monitor fits snugly inside the case and has multiple flaps that do double duty as sun shade and layers of material over the LCD screen. While you can't stack C-stands on top of this case, it's protection enough for most situations. Zippers allow access to various parts of the back and velcro fastens the front flaps in either the open or closed position. The case comes with a strap for over the shoulder transport as well. All in all, it's well designed and very adequate for transporting the monitor.

        Pros

        • Convenient

        Cons

        • Poorly Designed
        • Poorly Padded

        Best Uses

          Comments about Porta Brace MO-LH1700 Flat Screen Monitor Case (Signature Blue):

          Most Porta-Brace bags are very well designed and useful. This case needs a few improvements. First, you can't use a VESA mount battery plate like the IDX A-ELCD2 plate because both the back panel and the panel used to prop the monitor get in the way. Second, the panel used to prop the monitor is very flimsy and often fails to hold the monitor at an angle. Finally, the design for the shade is pitiful. It's not rigid enough to maintain a consistent shape and the zippers on our case have both broken.

          However, without a case like this it would be almost impossible to take the Panasonic 17" monitors out in the field and not destroy them.

            If your run and gun on, on the road, or in a studio, you can't go wrong with it. But you have to disassemble the base plate off of the LCD in order for it to fit. It's a little bit hard to keep it up straight but once it's set it's great.

            My Pana 1760 monitor fits perfectly.
            It's as solid and reliable as all Portabrace products are and should be.
            The only thing I'd like is more adjustability in screen angle. I compared other products for the 17" monitor and felt this was the best.
            I'm still a little concerned about the screen as I would be with any soft case. I may get the perspex screen protector from Pana so I don't worry so much.
