These thread revivals are always amusing. Seriously though, Sony is an evil company. Rootkits, exploding batteries, poor warranty, etc. Eventually the general public will realize that they really aren't the trusted brand people think they are.

As for the extended warranties mentioned, remember this. Sales Associates are NOT your friend. ESPECIALLY at Best Buy. They are typically morons just trying to make a sale. Many stores give a commission on those extended warranties so they push them like crazy. At Best Buy they are more than happy to lie to get you to buy one. If you are going to shell out cash for an extended warranty, read every word on that contract before you buy it. If you pay for something without reading the contract, you really are setting yourself up for dissapointment. Accidental coverage is usually so expensive that it's barely worth paying for.

I screwed Circuit City out of $100 by aiding costumers in selecting a Wacom tablet+pen package. The larger model was $100 more than the smaller model, but the drawing space increase wasn't significant enough to constitute that, not to mention that I own the smaller one from a year before. $100 isn't much, but I'm proud that I could prevent potential revenue to Circuit City. :)

No I did not forget since I get an email everytime I get a reply, Don't worry I've been reading what everyone has to say. I said "junk the sony" and got a nice HP Pavilion for half the problems!...yet that is.

Oh guess what. My Sony Cybershot camera's flash doesn't work very well. Wonder why...(because it''s s-o-n-y)

My grandson has broken three PSPs in as many months through the poor build quality of the 'joystick'. Definitely would never recommend Sony to anyone. Also agree that it is the pits trying to find anyone outside Sony to do repairs on them. Apparently this is because they use so many 'non-standard' parts of their own manufacture.

I have a Sony Cybershot DSC-W210. I bought the camera in late July, 2009. It worked fine and then the next time I turned it on, no screen and the picture comes up black. I sent it in for warranty. They told me it had physical damage and dents and that they will not honor the warranty. This camera was in perfect condition except for the defect in the screen which is a known defect in this camera. I guess before I buy anything again, search for complaints first. I will never buy another Sony product. If anyone has any information I can use to try to get them to honor my warranty, I appreciate it. But it sounds like a lost battle. Which I believe stinks and we should really all get together and create a website or complain on facebook and spread the word. Why let a big Company let their customers be scammed.

The only thing that to me Sony excels is in gaming consoles. Everything else "good" must be a very high end component that is overpriced and that the same quality that can be obtained from other brands who usually offer better warranties.

Cynthia sorry to hear that, I have a Cyber-shot DSW-120 that I bought last year when Circuit City was closing in Puerto Rico. I should have went with another Canon Camera that offered slightly better specs and was priced about $10 cheaper but it was of redish pinkish color and as Ignorant as I was I went with my black Sony cybershot instead. I soon started to dislike it when I realized that it was only compatible with "specialized" SD cards. I didn't imagine that Sony would be so obssessed with media storage, I mean Jesus! They have their own version of DVD's which is the DVD - (minus), Their own HD dvd storage, their own mini HD dvd's and their own special SD cards.

If this camera fails on me soon, I'll be damned If I ever buy another Sony product that isn't a gaming console.

Everything I write is Sarcasm.
