Good enough considering the price.,
This review is from: Ex-Pro Sony NP-FW50, NPFW50 High Power Plus+ - 2 Year Warranty Replacment Sony Lithium Li-on Digital Camera Battery (Camera)
I bought this battery for my Sony NEX-5 camera. The battery is different to the provided picture as the front face is just black no arrow or w logo. On the back of the battery it says 7.2v and 1080 mAh. The battery came charged at 77% , however the instructions said I need to fully charge the battery so I did, I used the charger provided with my sony camera.
I was pleased to see that the battery is fully compatible with my new firmware which is .03, and I can see the remaining battery life on screen (percentage % and battery indicator).
To test the performance of this battery, I started taking one minute full HD videos. The average of this battery is a 35 sec clip for every 1% power, while the original battery can shoot 55sec.
So, I guess this battery dies 1.5 times faster than the original which is not bad considering that the price is 4 times less and hence my 5 stars.
I think this is a good backup battery.

The original Sony battery is rated at 1020mAh, and as you state, the EXpro claim a 1080mAh rating. Therefore, it should last longer than the Sony. So if you find the battery dies 1.5 times faster, that means the EXpro claim is incorrect. I bought one of these for a Sony Alpha A33 but the contacts on the battery are more deeply positioned than the original, so wouldnt make contact without holding the battery firmly in. As soon as the battery door was closed, it disconnected! This is not a quality product and I was glad to get my money back. Watch out for battery temperature in use and when recharging! You get what you pay for. If you find it only does half the expected life, why would it get 5 stars?

He didn't say it only gets half the expected life - he said it dies 1.5x faster (ie it has 33% less power) half would have been 2.0x.
He gave it 5 stars for the reason he clearly stated.
Did you actually read his review??
