We bought one of these to give to the grandparents as a gift, pre loaded with baby pictures etc. Just spent the last hour or so setting it up but done now.
I won't bore you with all the details but here are the highlights...
1) Very good picture quality. The default screen settings are probably the best though.
2) Plenty of settings. Umpteen different transition effects but I still think the disolve/fade is the most elegant.
3) Good interval settings, 3sec, 10sec, 3min, 2hrs etc. Much better than a lot of budget frames which only offer an eye strain enducing and highly distracting range of seconds only!
4) Small point but the power adaptor has a right angled DC plug into the frame which means it isnt visible when connected. Again, UNLIKE a lot of other frames!
1) You DO have to undo the screws to get the protective film off. Schoolboy error but easy to fix of course.
2) The stand is impossible to attach properly due to the moulding of the lugs... (you'll see what I mean) Again, easily fixed by shaving half a mm off with a stanley knife but shouldnt really have to!
3) Logical to use but slightly annoying menu system that turns off if you change a setting rather than going back to the previous screen.
1) Dont forget that all your lovely digital photos are almost 4:3 ratio where as the screen is 16:9 widescreen. Therefore you have to make them fit. I reccomend using "crop" rather than "stretch" or "original" This fills the screen properly with no distortion and also without black bars L & R. The only slight downside is that you will lose a little bit of the image top and bottom.
2) Resize all your images to 640 x 480 (VGA resolution) first. You will get hundreds of photos onto a small SD card and the quality is pretty much indistinguishable on the frame compared to the full res version.
3) Organise everything into the running order you want on the PC etc BEFORE you transfer the images to the SD card. Then its a simple case of inserting the card and pushing play 3 times to get it running the slideshow.
To the person who asked about transferring from a USB stick... no i'm afraid as there is no USB port but hey... what do you want... it's only £30!
A great little frame, well worth the money and the most important bit (the picture quality) is great. The grandparents are going to be well pleased and we are gonna get another one for ourselves!
Only losing the 1 star due to the small niggles
