arrived broken and inoperable

Summary: I've had this camera before and loved it, but mine has suffered a hard life. I thought I would purchase a used model on Amazon, but it arrived broken and inoperable. That is completely inexcusable from a seller.
Summary: I purchased my camera year ago, and it's broke twice now. I already had to waste time and money sending it in to get fixed once this past summer. Luckily it was still under the warrenty. 3 months later, it broke again, and sony told me it would cost $100 to get it fixed. The entire camera itself was around $130, but the memory card was another $50. So glad I spent $200 on a camera that doesn't turn on, or take a picture.
Summary: We wanted a simple point and shoot camera to get snaps of the grandkids. It had to be easy to operate, we don't have time to be messing with menus and adjustments. I have an old Fuji 2600, an 8-year old 2MP camera, that has done a good job, but lately has been showing its age. I read a few professional reviews that said the DSC-W120 had better-than-average shutter lag for a pocket camera.
Summary: I had this camera Sony DSCW 120 for about 4 months; and until now I do not know why sony has this big name. before it, I had a fuji camera and canon. the Fuji is 2MP and to me, it give much better photos that this 7MP sony. I was surprised with the bad quality of the images of sony DSCW 120 when you view them on the computer. My old Fuji camera (I think 7 years old) makes much better images.
Summary: The internal storage of the Sony Cybershot DSCW120 is ridiculously small, and a "memory stick" must be purchased for an additional $30+ to provide a reasonable photographic capability. Though the internal storage is 15Mbytes, this translates into only 5 (five) actual images at the default resolution. Perhaps this information is buried someplace in their product manuals. It required a phone call to Sony for me to determine it.
Camera Stopped Working and Horrible Customer Service

Summary: I have now purchased 2 Sony cameras but will never buy from them again. I had this Cybershot camera, and started having problems with it after 6 months. The camera would turn on, but the picture was black. Everytime I would take a picture it would also be black. I used their tech support over the phone and two times they were able to walk me through the problem to solve it.
Summary: I had this camera for only 4 months when the screen locked up and wouldn't function. I spent 8 bucks to send it to the Sony repair center where they said that the malfunction was my fault and that the repair would cost me $90 bucks. So the manufacturer's warranty is baloney, or Sony Baloney. Effectively, there is NO manufacturer's warranty, just in case you want to buy this camera. Whatever goes wrong with your Sony camera is your fault, and they will NOT cover it.
Summary: While this camera has an impressive collection of features (albeit few useful ones), the quality of the photo it takes turned out to be very poor. We didn't expect it to be as good as the Nikon D50, 6MP SLR we purchased two years ago, but even on full quality this "7.2MP" camera's pictures were worse than a five year old 2MP camera we have. Needless to say, we were very disappointed with this camera and returned it. We have since purchased a Panasonic FS3.
Summary: Ich habe die Sony DSC-W120 vor zehn Tagen auch aufgrund der hier bis dahin nur positiven Rezensionen und der durchweg sehr guten Testergebnisse gekauft. Vorab: Ich bin kein Profi. Ich erwarte eine schnelle, handliche Kamera mit der ich hauptsächlich Schnappschüsse mache. Dabei sind viele Fotos von Kindern und Tieren, hauptsächlich im Freien. Nun zur Kamera. Ich habe sie heute zurück gehen lassen.
