Pros:
They fit properly in my Sony A330. In fact they have a bit more capacity than the original Sony battery, also according to the specs. A lot cheaper than the real deal.
Cons:
-It is not sure if you will receive a 100% functional one. -1 worked 100% ok. The other sometimes quits. That one had a minor bent in the connection to the camera. First time it got seriously stuck in the device. A short moment of panic.
Other:
I ordered 2. One of them works 100%. The other works but when using it sometimes the camera just stops dead completely. As soon as i remove and insert the battery again it works again. As they seem to have more capacity than the original ones, the battery display stays longer at 100% to drop suddenly once the battery really gets empty.
Bottomline:
I used them on a 3 week trip and I really needed them because in general the batteries for a Sony DSLR do not have a decent lifespan compared to other cameras. If both would have worked properly, this would really be a great deal. As it is now, I would rate this as fair (considering the price of an official Sony battery.
