The above parshios seem like decent tefilin however they were made on an assembly line and the sofer has no rebbe or no yiras shamayim, and the metayag is definitely a young bochur who has no idea what he is doing and its very possible that he is not mekadesh -which again on tagim wouldn't pasel.
None of the following pasul the parshios but are wrong :
alef beis yosef in ksav ari
eikev habeis to long
gimel head should be square-it should be rosh not gag ,
eikev hadalet too long
eikev hay too long sometimes right foot is in middle of gag as second hay of hazeh
hay of shem not according to kabala -these are ari parshios
vav missing tag-ari
zayin-is long ,head is not square לא יהא רגלה ארוך מב' קולמסים,וראשה- ויהיה מרובע
ches makel too short הוא כמו תג גדול
yud-MEKOTZETZ for those who need source that tag elyon should be longer then kotz see pm"g
kaf- square inside
LAMED IS MEHUIDAR YAY IT HAS THE RIGHT KOTZ HIGHER first lamed seems as not mukaf gvul also looks like flag not vav וראשה של הצואר יהיה עגול
mem sofit ולא ימשוך הגג לצד שמאל הרבה ובדיעבד יגרור המותר
nun head is too wide ולא יותר רחב מראש הזיין(hiz zeins heads are also too wide)
shin middle regel connects to right regel-seeשבעת
THE WORST PART IS NOBODY EVER TOLD THE SOFER THAT HE IS NOT WRITING PROPERLY.
CONCLUSION,bdieved (after the fact that they were written) these tefilin are kosher (not kosher bdieved) all mem sofits should be scratched.
