Pros:
I recently just purchased a Sony A33 and have been wanting a second battery to have just in case ever since. I looked up online for Sony batteries and was unimpressed with the over 80$ prices so I decided to come to DX and found exactly what I was looking for at a fraction of the price. No problems when charging it in a Sony original charger (it fit perfectly) and worked almost just as good as the original battery. The battery looks and feels (weight-wise) just like the original, excepting the logo and branding of course.
Cons:
I found a weird thing that it worked better if you left it to charge fully. It seemed to discharge slower in comparison to being just partly charged. But still, so far it seems to be as efficient as the original.
Other:
The battery didn't overheat or anything while charging. I got about 90% battery time on this in comparison to the original Sony battery, which is still pretty damn good.
Bottomline:
Considering the price and knowing what these things cost in the originals, it's a definite must buy.
