Exceptionally well DesignedHad been looking through many reviews and websites to get a high quality picture frame. Had made the mistake of getting a cheap frame which was dull and foggy – so decided to get a +£120 frame.
Finally decided this Philips and am very pleased with my homework skills. It’s a luxurious looking frame especially in white.
The main reason i chose this however is the simple dock, so that when friends come over it can be picked up and passed round on it’s long life battery power, rather than the usual ‘mass group huddle’.
Operation is really simple, with touch sensitive light up buttons on the edge of the frame... a really nice touch is that these disappear upon photo viewing so no distractions and no visible buttons anywhere to be seen.
There are too many options to mention here, but have set my frame up to randomly select photos from the 1Gb internal memory and an 8Gb SDHC card i purchased. The frame can also ‘autofit’ the pictures so you don’t get any loss of picture size – however this does mean that i lost the heads off a few of my family members going from portrait to landscape view...but a quick crop later on my PC, they are back again.
Using the auto ‘on’, ‘off’ timer - i now come home to bright smiling faces (until the real family turn up).
My only criticism of this brilliant frame, is the 80’s feel software it comes with. I gave up using it and just organise / crop pictures using Windows explorer and Googles Picasa.
Would heartily recommend this frame to anyone who wants a top top quality frame and picture to go with it...

Very satifactory purchaseI bought this frame for my husband's birthday and I must say the pictures are displayed perfectly. However it has been a bit of a struggle, as is usual with electronic equipment now-a-days, to follow the set up. The Quick start guide does not even tell you where the on/off switch is. Copying the photos across is easy but, if you want to amend or delete photos you have put on, the manual does not tell you that you can do all this from the computer, instead it tells you you can do it from the frame which, if you have more than one photo to delete is fairly tortuous, especially since although the controls are good they are VERY sensitive. It just all requires a bit of patience .... I feel the frame was a bit pricey but the reason I bought it was that it had an internal battery and could therefore be taken off its charger and also it has a large memory.

Go anywhere photoframeThe rechargeable battery is the feature that sets this photoframe apart, as you can take your photos anywhere to show family and friends. The styling is good and although the menu system is rather clunky and not easy to use, overall this is a great bit of kit.
