Typhoon Photo Frame 7"
Advantages: Cheap and looks good
Disadvantages: A bit of a struggle to load
I have had a digital photo frame for a while, and decided that it would be a good idea to set one up for a friend for her birthday. She had loads of pictures of her children on her camera and laptop and I thought it would be nice for her to be able to show them off in the house. Add to that we had just been away to Bruges for a few days so she could put those pictures on as well.
I got the Typhoon 7" frame and must admit it took a bit of messing round to get the pictures the way I wanted them. I then chose the amount of time that each one was to be on show and everything was done. There was a good choice of time and I chose 5 minutes although it is possible to have anything from a few seconds to an hour. Looking back it was not the most difficult thing to do, but it took longer to set this up then it did to set up my own digital frame.
Once they were on they looked really good so it was worth the bit of messing around. Some look better than others but that could have been more to do with the quality of the picture to begin with. I was happy with the results and my friend was happy with the frame.
This was one of the cheaper frames and I only paid £30 and although I liked some of the black frames this is a silver colour and looks effective. I have only added a couple of dozen pictures as that is how many I managed to get on the 64mb card that comes with it. It is possible to get a bigger card but I am not aware that the pictures have been changed since I set it up, so it seems a bit pointless to get a bigger card under these circumstances.
This is not the most solid digital photo frame that I have seen but it looks nice, does the job and did not break the bank.
