Summary: The LCD display started to get distorted after a year. It looked like something got splashed on it. I thought it just needed a good cleaning and before I knew it got terribly worse and the warranty had expired. Now you can’t tell if you have a good picture or not and Sony want $140 to refurbish it. It's less than 3 years old and has hardly been used. No more Sony's for me.
Summary: After only 5 months this cameras LCD screen stopped working. There is not a scratch on it but the slightest touch can damage the screen and with out it you can not use the camera. The LCD screen is not covered under the sony warranty and customer service is poor.
Summary: I am not a photo guru, just a simple point and click guy with a family that needs a nice small camera that is easy to slip in a pocket to take good pictures and videos with little need to read a manual or make adjustments. Previousily I had a Casio 7 megapixal camera for three years which took good clear photos. So the t200 looked great, tiny, stylish and good features.
Summary: I just bought the cybershot DSC-T200 because my husband really likes his T100, so I thought why not go for the upgrade. I can't believe what a poor product it is! The screen was scratched almost immediately, and for some reason they've greatly decreased the continuous video recording time to 10 mins. I've taken 35 min long videos with my husband's T100, but this one just cuts off at 10 mins. Sony was no help at all.
Sony Cybershot DSC-200 - Terrible Camera - Photos Dark and Grainy
T. TEMPLETON "T Templeton", Amazon

Summary: This camera is simply the worst camera i have ever bought. I own a Nikon S51C and a Canon 870IS. This camera does not even come close to either of those two. I have taken hundreds of pictures with each and the Sony DSC-T200 I thought was defective but it was just the quality you get from a Sony I guess. I think the Nikon S51C is the best photo camera on the market. It takes awesome indoor photos in low light and superior outdoor.
Summary: Grainy, noisy pictures even indoors. The LCD screen is pixelated. I even went to different stores and checked them, suspecting a defective piece. Very disappointing. Pity, coz it looks great and the touchscreen interface works flawlessly. I picked up a Canon SD870 and haven't looked back since.
Fragile Camera and Customer Service Is Unacceptable

Summary: First the good news. I bought this camera in Sept 2007 and loved it - stylish, fun, good photos Now the not so great news. The camera was dropped from under 3 feet (the person holding it was kneeling for a shot) and it cracked the lcd screen. I sent it off for repair - and the cost of repair is 1/2 the cost of the orginal price I paid ($211 to repair) Sony's Customer Service is poor.
