Okay pictures, poor quality control and customer service

Summary: I purchased this camera 45 days ago. For the most part, I was happy with the pictures it took, the ISO is a huge improvement over the last digital camera I owned. Mine had several issues, one of which I'm not sure is common among all of these, and one that is a defect.
Summary: I am very upset over my purchase of this camera. After my second day using it, I got an error message. I had taken about 5 photos and had not done anything that may have harmed the camera. On the web page I found what to do for the error message, but it did not work.
Summary: I bought this camera after reading all the "great" reviews on it. I have a 4-year old and a 19-month old and all I really use the camera for is taking pictures of them. I took maybe 150 pictures and none of them turned out at all. Nearly every single picture was blurry. I returned the camera.
Summary: Product was not received because of sellers delivery mode without warning that the delivery required a signature. Also FEDEX promised to keep item until I could pick up at their facility and instead returned it to the sender. By that time is was too late to find this product elsewhere.
Poor image quality in medium to low light, hard to avoid blur

Summary: We bought this camera as smaller alternative to our Digital Rebel SLR which is roughly 7MP as well. We wanted something smaller to take on quick trips, snapshots of the kids, etc... We were very dissapointed with the image quality, especially indoors where less light is available.
PLEASE DO NOT BUY THIS CAMRA IF YOU LOVE YOUR MONEY

Summary: we bought 2 sony w 80 in november 2007. minus points:- 1. when you switch it on the lens makes such noise as if sand is stuck inside it (this problem was same in both cameras mind it) 2. it is very delicate DO NOT DROP IT OTHERWISE LENS WILL NOT COME OUT.
This camera is good, but SONY service/repair is bad

Summary: Hi! I wouldn't even rate this camera as its manufacturer, sony is really bad in service/repair. I got this camrea from US as gift from my brother (who is in USA# and in 4 months its Lense CCD image device went bad.
Summary: totaly useless if you want to take on holiday i did twice the first one lasted 1 day before it packed up,the shutter open and closed all the time .the second one lasted 3 days before the same thing happend. the camera was sent back to sony who said it has sand damage and returned it.
Excerpt: Если разглядывать фотик - то пойдет. Если смотреть фотки с него - не годится... Знаю. что говорю. Товарищ в магазине работает. Все уже проверили. Себе берем маленькие мыльницы Никон и Кэнон, и зеркалки тех-же марок.
Pros: Ну, может кто и найдет.
Cons: Качество фоток просто страшное. Но может, любителям Сони шильдик с названием фирмы и заменяет нормальные фотки... Вроже, так можно подумать, почитав отзывы типа :"фотки, конечно, отстой, зато фотик Сони".
