Have been looking into getting a digital photo frame for ages, and finally got round to buying this Philips at £99.
The 800 x 400 resolution is a must for me. I had a Mustek delivered a while ago, which was advertised at 800 x 400, but turned out to be 400 x 200. The quality of the image on the Philips is easily worth the extra money alone!
But besides that, the build quality is excellent and the menu system works very well, having icons on the screen which directly relate to the buttons on the back when viewed from the front.
There are a few minor niggles.
The battery does not last very long at all, it is very handy for 'wire free' setting up etc., but you only get
about a couple of hours of viewing time.
It does not take 'naked' memory stick duo's, you have to use a full size adapter. This really is no big deal I know, but a bit annoying.
And lastly, there are lots of different transition effects when in the 'random' mode, but you can only select four of them individually, and in my opinion, they are not the four best ones.
I prefer to have no effect, and the photos to just change, so again, this is no big deal for me. But it would be nice if you could select all of the transition effects individually, or even pick two of three favourites to rotate randomly.
Maybe a software upgrade is/will be available?
All in all I am very pleased with the frame, and can recommend it highly.
