Adaptor works, but I resent Sony using proprietary input jack which is not same as my old Sony power supply.

Summary: Works fine for my Sony HDR-CX230 handycam. They don't provide a power adapter with the camera, only a USB cable, which is no good if you want to get wall power during a meeting without access to USB. You could try a wall USB plug adapter to see if it works - but for short distances. I did not.
Excerpt: I lost the one that came with the Sony camera I own. So I was very happy to find this OEM replacement at very decent price. In the past, camera manufacturers have charged a steep price for their charger replacements.
Pros: Easy To Install, Good Value, Highly Compatible
Summary: it was exactly the part i was looking for bought a new handycam in europe, and it came with the european plug; i hated the thought of having to use and adapter when i got back home to the states but i bought this one, and presto, i'm in business...american style and the price was decent
