Summary: I first saw this Cyber Shot station at my sister in laws and knew right then I had to have this unit. It was very easy to hook up to the TV set and I chose one set in the bedroom where I could leave the station permanently. The hardest part was locating one which I found on a Amazon seller's list. It works excellent and has built in sound which when viewing a long series of slides is excellent. The quality is excellent for the unit and the pictures.
Summary: I'm pleased with the convenience provided by the cyber shot station..but, was disappointed that I couldn't connect it to my sony brand TV using HDMI cables. Part of my logic with going with all Sony equipment was to obtain seamless operation, something I don't get due to the lack of state of the art connecting cable. Otherwise, this is yet another great Sony product.
Summary: Anyone looking to get this docking station should be aware that this docking station, unlike other docking stations, will NOT connect to your computer. For this sole reason I gave it 3 stars. Charging your camera and watching HD video and your pictures on a TV is a breeze with this docking station. It is very attractive and can match the T500 or T300 if you have it. I use it for the T700 and it looks very sleek.
Summary: While it's great for viewing and showing pictures from the camera it's really great for reviewing pictures to determine which ones to delete and which ones need further processing like red-eye reduction or cropping. You do have to use the camera controls to perform those functions. The docking station only views pictures. It has no features to operate the cameras menu operations.
Summary: This little clever Sony unit has expanded my enjoyment of my Sony DSC-T300 Digital Camera photos. When placed on the Cyber-Shot Station the Remote Commander included offers a number of ways that allows you to view photos, including through your TV. Of special note: the Station will charge the battery pack inside the camera faster than the camera supplied charger. I would definitely recommend this handy little device and it's well worth the price.
You definitely want this to get the most from your Cybershot

Summary: After using for 4 months, I can't imagine being without it. Prior to getting this accessory, viewing the camera's videos and still photos was cumbersome, to say the least. Imagine crouching down in front of the TV and operating the controls from this tiny camera; that is, AFTER connecting and plugging in the necessary cables each time you want to show them. then disconnecting again when you're done.
Summary: Small size makes it easy to put anywhere on the entertainment center, and it's highly portable. Easy to connect to an HD TV or regular TV. Very nice for viewing and selecting pictures. Charges the camera battery faster than using the wall charger, without having to take the battery out of the camera.
Summary: I have a Sony W150 digital camera and after I bought this Cyber-shot station I do not need my video camera anymore. By using the remote control I can watch videos in full screen on my TV and watch my pictures. This Cyber-shot station does not give the camera extra functionality, but it is much easier with the remote control and also easier to plugin the camera to the station than using the cable. Even, it is a little expensive I would recommend buying this product.
Summary: Purchased the dock so my wife could easily pre-view our photos on her HD TV. After deleting unwanted photos and editing for red eye, etc. I transfer them to my Mac for any further tweaking and storage then sync them to her beloved Apple TV as part of her video photo album. Also, having the camera sitting in the dock always ready has saved many moments of panic when we need to grab the camera and go. A neat product well worth the money.
