TeckNet 1.5" Egg Digital Photo Frame
Advantages: Cute, easy to use, long lasting, thickly made,
I'm a bit of a technology lover, and for the Christmas just gone, one of the awesome presents I recieved was the TeckNet 1.5" Egg Digital Photoframe.
This is pretty much what it sounds like, a digital photo frame in the shape of an egg! I was given a green one, and the screen on the egg is 1.5", so you won't be displaying any massive photos, but it is a nice, different way to display a choice of photos in my front room.
The egg is made from a thickened plastic, I believe acyrlic, and it runs on a rechargeable battery. Mine usually gets recharged through the USB cable supplied with it, and I am not sure if you are able to buy a wall charger to go with it, it is not something I have ever thought about if I am honest. The screen is 128 x 128 pixels, and is full colour.
The tech spec reckon this egg can hold around 107 photos, and it is not far off. I currently have 98 photos on mine. It is really easy to put the photos on the egg too, all you have to do is pop in the USB cable and connect to a computer which runs ME/2000, XP or Vista. You do not need a driver to use it, as it will be found as a mass storage device, and you can just open the folder which houses the photo files you wish to display on the egg. You can then use drag and drop to select the files you wish to use, and they transfer really quickly. The egg only supports photos which are in the formats of JPG and BMP.
Whenever the egg is connected to a computer through the USB cable, it will charge the battery for you. I found it only took about 45 minutes for the egg to be completley charged up. The egg is only about 8cm tall by 6 cm wide, so it will not take up a lot of room in the house, and I have mine sitting happily on top of my DVD shelving unit.
You can select to have the pictures shown by slideshow, which will continuaslly scroll through the photos on the egg, untill you either tell it to stop, or just runs out of battery. You can also choose the manual mode, which sits on one photo until you push the button to scroll to the next one, or start the slideshow again. I found on slideshow mode, the egg lasts around 8 hours on a full charge if left to play alone, which I think is quite impressive as it is a very small piece of equipment, and I did not expect it to last that long.
I think the green colour is very eye catching, and it looks quite nice in my house. If green is not your colour, there is a choice of other colours. These other colours include Pink, Orange and Yellow. In the box you will find the Egg, USB Cable and a small manual which should easily help you through the set up and use process, but to be honest it is very simple and chances are you will not need the manual.
These cute little digital photo frames can be bought on Amazon for the tiny price of £12.49. I think this is a great price, and I am planning on buying a few others in different colours to place around my home. If you are looking for something different for your home, or for a nice gift for someone, then I can truly happily recommend the TeckNet Egg Digital Photo Frame. I find no fault with it, and I give this a 5 out of stars. Totally recommended.
Summary: A great little digital photo frame
