Clip holding in battery broke within a few uses

Summary: Okay - takes nice pictures, but my rating reflects that the little clip that holds the battery in place partially broke after just a few uses. And, it wasn't being abused; it just broke as it was being used as instructed. Thankfully, there is still just enough left to hold the battery in, but I always treat it very gingerly.
Summary: so i bought this item as a present to my mom and she's VERY careful with things btw, one day she said that the camera just won't work, i looked and it wouldnt take pics anymore or even open...
Summary: Very unhappy with the limited flash settings and un-crisp, indoor pictures. HD video is nice, but incompatible with my older laptop. I wish I had not bought this camera. Like the W220 Sony much, much more. On Ebay, they're only $50 used. I'm snapping them up every chance I get.
Summary: There are other reviews that go into detail. Bottom line is- this camera is cheap ( construction) , very slow and the pic quality is unremarkable. I am returning it. I bought a Samsung with a touch screen - much, much better.
Summary: I've used a Sony DSC-W120 for a few years and LOVE it. I saw the bundle deal at a warehouse store and thought I was getting an awesome upgrade from 7.2Mega pixels to 16+, as well and Image Stabilization and a number of other enticing features. After only an hour of playing with it I'm very disappointed. It has no micro setting for capturing close-ups of insect and plant life. I'll take fault for not investigating that. But any zoom shots seem blurry.
Summary: I gave away my Sony DSC-W350 to a relative because she loved my camera (I had it for less than a month) and always wanted to replace it with the identical or similar model. I saw the DSC-W570 and thought it would be a slight upgrade in zoom and everything else would remain the same since the specs are practically identical. I ended up getting a great deal on it ($149.99) which was less than what I bought the W350 for. After less than a week with it, I'm not impressed.
Not a good value for the price (cheap cheap cheap build quality)

Summary: I picked up a DSC-W570 recently at "a major discount warehouse chain" (actually, Amazon is cheaper on the price, though). I paid $179.00 for the bundle. The camera was blister packed with the camera, case, memory card, and basic accessories that included a USB cable, software, wrist strap, and battery/charger. When you look at this camera even up close, it almost appears to have a metal body, which would have been great.
