I think digital photo frames are a fantastic invention and would recommend everyone has one. I find myself sitting watching it, remembering when the photos were taken, and bringing back so many fantastic memories. The ones of my daughter I cherish the most, looking back from when she was born at how she has grown, seeing pictures I had forgotten about, all the photos of her first times doing different things. All those photos would never be seen without this frame and it helps make sure all your fantastic memories are never forgotten.
This frame is really easy to use. You plug it into your computer using the supplied USB cable and it appears in "My Computer" then you literally drag and drop the photos from your computer onto the frame. It's that simple. This frame has 1GB internal memory which holds a lot of photos but it also has the capacity to hold a memory card so I now have a 4GB card in mine as well. I have thousands of photos on mine.
There are various settings such as having a clock displayed, the speed the photos change, the way they merge from one to the next and whether they are played randomly or in order. I have mine set on random so you are not looking at the same photos all the time, it may show me one I took yesterday then one I took 5 years ago. I love this feature.
The frame itself is black with circles on it but to be honest you can't really see the circle pattern unless you're up close. Ours is next to our black LCD TV and Xbox and it matches perfectly. There are no visible buttons on the front which makes the frame smooth and sleek. When you touch the right side of the frame lights appear and you touch them to do the action you want.
Having recently got myself a good camera and now taking tons of photos I found that I needed a way to display them, printing them all and putting them in albums would be my first choice but it would cost a fortune.
I have them all on my laptop and can view them anytime on there but showing them to others is a bit of a hassle and by the time you have got the laptop out, switched it on found the folder and began to show them people are already bored.
A digital photo frame that was always on view seemed a very good idea but which one to choose was an issue as there are literally dozens to choose from.
With a bit of shopping around and the fact that it was half price in a Curry`s sale I settled on the SAMSUNG SPF75H and it seems to have been an ok choice although having owned it now for three months I have to say I would not pay the original £80 asking price for it.
Having bought it for just £40 I feel it was decent value although I have since seen better looking frames. This one has a 7 inch LCD screen with a resolution of 8000 x 8000, it has an Integrated Flash Memory of 1GB and it supports Still Images Formats of JPEG, Flash Memory Cards Supported: Memory Stick, MultiMediaCard, SD Memory Card, xD-Picture Card.
Uploading your images to this frame is very quick and very easy and because it has such a large capacity for storage you don't really have to worry about a memory card.
You can choose to view the images in a simple auto slide show or you can zoom in or out on the images as well as rotating them should you need to, I have now found that some Sony models offer a hell of a lot more functions for only a few pounds more and certainly look better than this but overall this one seems to do a decent job and has thus far been reliable.
I would be happy to recommend this frame to others as it has a bright screen that allows your images to look very nice and it looks good in any modern home but I would have to be honest and say shop around because if I had my money back I might just add a tenner to it and go for a Sony.
Mine came in a package with a S760 camera from ASDA, at under £100.00 Unfortunately the frame (which has a1G hard drive memory) lost all its software, after 4 days, and having downloaded about 300 photos I was not best pleased. As a reult it would not dispalay any of the pictures that had been loaded. Incidentally it failed whilst "dormant" It was fine when switched off one evening but would not find the software when turned on the next day. It was exchanged without fuss and the new one still works. This is a very stylish frame and if it continues to work then I will remain very impressed.
