Advantages: Beautiful design, good quality pictures, easy to use
Disadvantages: Pricey, no USB slot
This is advertised to have "stylish, elegant design" and I absolutely agree with it. It's not fancy, just a simple black frame. I think it would also work well in the office because it looks so simple and sleek! Also comes with a remote which makes control easy.
It has 256MB memory which means you can store 500 photos if your photos are not too big. I would have liked it to have more memory because I have so many digital images built up over the years, but for now this would do. Aside from displaying photos, there are quite a few useful features as well. I will point out the ones I use the most
- There is a clock display, which I always find useful as I put this on my bedside table.
- Image search when you need to find a specific photo
- On/off timer which is essentially a bedtime mode for me
- It has this built in function which automatically rotates the photos for you
- Quite a few different display modes that you can choose from, all have different effects
Quality and ease of usage
The remote is functional and clear so it's easy to use. Set up is also very fast, I remember it took me no time at all. Picture quality is amazing, as I would expect from a Sony display. I haven't had any problem with this frame yet and I have used it for almost a year now... (which actually surprised me because I am usually not very impressed with Sony's product).
Point to note
There is no USB slot. I would have preferred if there was one, but I use my SD card to display pictures with the frame so it's okay as well. But just note this before you buy it because I think Sony wasn't very specific about the USB availability.
I got this as a gift a year ago so I am unsure of the price paid. Checked on amazon and it's currently standing at £143.90. Not cheap! Price-wise, I think there are cheaper alternatives that may be just as good as this digital frames.
Gave this 4 stars because to me, it's a little on the expensive side and it doesn't have a USB slot!
Summary: Would recommend, as long as you're happy to pay the price
