They responded to my email and agreed to refund me $9.99. So I changed my initial rating from 3 to 4 stars.
Checking Sony's website, their replacement battery costs $199.99! Other aftermarket options are considerably cheaper than the one offered by Sony, but come with dismal reviews. So I was surprised to see this particular model on Amazon for a low price and a 4-star rating! So I purchased it, and was surprised by the fact that it arrived so fast (considering that it came all the way from NJ!)
First thing you should note, though, this battery requires that you install the included software to get it to work, as Sony configured their laptops' BIOSes to only recognize original Sony batteries. The software will work on Windows Vista (the default OS on my PC), though I'm not sure if it will work on Windows XP, Windows 7, or Linux. After installing it, I replaced the old battery with the new one. I noticed that it does have a poor fit, as it leaves some gaps, but it's not too noticeable. Once I powered it on, it carries a 85-90% charge, so charging it up to 100% only takes up 15-20 minutes. I've tested it for a month on Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Ubuntu (Linux); average battery life is around 2 hours to 2 hours, 15 minutes.
This battery also comes with a USB card reader, supporting MMC/SD and Memory Stick cards. This may be useful if your laptop's card reader is busted, but in my case, it's still working perfectly. It's nice they included it, though.
To sum it up: If you're looking to replace your Vaio's battery, buy this one. You won't be disappointed!
One issue I did have was with the installation CD. I am running Windows Vista. When I tried to run the installation CD the installer never ran. It would just give me an error with a bunch of question marks, so I had to do some looking around online. At first Windows would not run with the new battery installed. This was fixed by disabling the service 'ISBMgr.exe'. After disabling ISBMgr.exe the laptop would detect the battery but it would not charge it without the BIOS update.
I did a search on google for VGP-BPS8 BIOS and found a website selling replacement batteries. The website is level8technology dot com. They have the same BIOS update on their website for download. From what I can tell it is exactly the same software that what was supposed to be included on the installation CD. After downloading and installing the update the battery works perfectly. When I installed the update I thought my computer had frozen but I just gave it time and it eventually finished, so be patient. Overall I give this 5 stars because it works, it's cheaper than the Sony battery, and it wasn't all that difficult to install. It also comes with the USB card reader, but I have not tried it because I have no use for it.
This is perfect fit for my laptop. This includes CD for Bios setup and instruction manual. Everything worked perfect on my laptop and setup was very simple.
Battery is taking almost 2 hrs to charge completely and lasts for 2 hrs. I did expected a backup of at least 3 to 4 Hrs, thats why I gave 4 stars.
As Sony no more selling batteries for FZ320E, this product is a good option and I recommend this.
