I have a fair few of these digital picture frames around the house, mainly due to the fact that I have a mass amount of digital family pictures that would take up all the wall space in the house if I put them all in standard frames. With many many pictures left over. So, in order to show as many pictures as I can I opt for these digital frames.
Some are good, some are bad and some, I'm embarrassed for ever buying them, and this one comes in that third category.... sadly.
This picture frame looks nice, being about 230 x 170mm, and about 55mm thick, having a thick frame around the actual 7 inch screen, with the frame being removable so that you can add another of a different design, as you get two spare frame in the kit.
The screen is a good size and is pretty clear offering 800 x 800 resolution but when it comes to actually showing the pictures in a slide show it really does let itself down.
It takes all sorts of memory cards, SD,MS pro, CF and even USB, which you'd think would be great for extending the pitiful internal memory, but it seems that this frame doesn't like to read the cards all the time, shouting at me for putting in an invalid card, even though the card is valid on another occasion. It claims to be able to handle most formats, your usual ones, MPEG,MPEG4,JPEG and so on. But on many occasions it tells me that the picture is unreadable, although it has just sat there and read the thing....
The speakers are a waste of space, giving out about as much sound as a mute swan with its head under water.
It does have it's good side. That being that, after owning it for a while and struggling to not smash it to pieces with a frozen cucumber, the chaps where I bought it from took it back and gave me a full refund... so that's a plus.
Other than that this frame is about as useful as a pair of Ray Ban's at the cinema. So save your £35, or more, and get yourself something more useful as this frame will make you cry and cry and cry....
