First impressions of this product were good with the fascia feeling well-made and solid. The frame works with SDHC cards which is a nice surprise as it isn't mentioned in the product description.
Both displays are sharp, bright and are very good quality, offering decent viewing angles. The auto-rotation sensor works well although if you have Calendar mode on, this doesn't rotate which is disappointing and an oversight on this product in my opinion.
Some of the features described in this product apply only to the top display. The bottom display isn't able to access the internal memory, play MP3s, has no Calendar mode and can't access any pictures through the USB port, only it's own SD card slot.
For the top display the features work well, MP3 playback and the speakers are adequate for a picture frame, although using the 3.5mm audio jack is advisable if you're planning to listen to music. The frame displays photos and MP3s in a flat list so if you've organised your MP3s or photos into many folders for easy access it won't show on the picture frame.
The programmable on/off time applies to the whole unit though the frame powers on into photo mode and it doesn't appear you can set which mode it will power on into.
Another niggle is the ability to have random playback of photos or music. Currently the frame only cycles through pictures or music in alpabetical order. Perhaps a bigger issue is that (at the time of writing) Motorola doesn't seem to acknowledge the existance of this photo frame on their website either in their support section or products section.
Overall for a £50 product I'm very satisfied with it, for £130 I'd have considerably more reservations over buying it.

was not expecting id need to get a memory card to store the pictures on as it has internal memory but that only works for the top screen aswell as the USB slot. You'll need a memory card to put pictures on the bottom screen other than that its excellent, delivered on time and cant complain well worth the money, also comes with the 2 pin adapter if your using it in spain for example.

Easy to use, fun, good image display.
Can be displayed in portrait or landscape.
only downside is that it rotates picture which can make them appear smaller if you have a portrait style picture when the frame is in landscape.
I got this a Christmas present for my husband and he loves it. We can now have all our digital photos of our family on permanent display!!
It is easy to use and fun too. Haven't used all the functions yet but I'm sure we will....
