I just bought one of these a few months back. I am quite happy with it.
Some of its highlights:
- can take a picture quite quickly from power on to shooting the pic.
- compact and robust body ... although I see that they are coming out
with a cheaper model lately with a flimsier feeling plastic body.
- good colour ... by my eyes anyways.
- good battery life
- motion stabilization

Some lowlights:
- custom USB cable
- custom battery
- the JPEG encoding used for the pictures is quite grainy when
digitally zoomed in.
