This model is one year old. It will still be a fine performer, but take a look the newer W330. It has a similar price, a little more power, and SD-card support. Here's what we had to say about the W230 last year:

The Sony W230 is yet another stylish offering from one of the leading names in digital photography. A 5x optical zoom, 30 mm wide-angle Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens with Optical SteadyShot image stabilization and high quality 12.1-megapixel resolution ensures that you can get close to the action without sacrificing picture quality. Additionally, MPEG Movie VX Fine Mode allows you to capture those moments to important to keep on just one photo. Finally, Face Detection and Smile Shutter technology lets you get the perfect picture, every time, while a 3.0-inch LCD display makes taking and reviewing pictures easier than ever. The W230 comes with 15 MB of built-in memory and utilizes Memory Stick Duo/PRO Duo Media for easy storage and sharing.
