5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommended, 26 Dec. 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Samsung 7" High Resolution Digital Photo Frame (SPF-72H) (Camera)
I too was surprised by the low scores this item received. Mine was purchased directly from Amazon, arrived with the correct mains plug, and worked straight out of the box.

The screen quality, in my opinion, is top-drawer. It seems to display even low-quality images quite sympathetically - I uploaded a couple of 1 megapixel photos from a camera phone, expecting to see a pixellated mess, but the results were surprisingly good. Give it a crisp image and the results are excellent.

The 800 x 480 pixel display is similar to a widescreen TV, so standard aspect-ratio images from most cameras won't fit as-is. With most, you'll see black bars down each side of the image (or use the menu options to allow you to fit the image to the width of the screen, and crop the top and bottom). Again, this is like watching an old TV programme on a widescreen TV. This is easily fixed by a quick bit of editing on the PC. I found the best results were obtained by shrinking the image to 800 x 480 pixels rather than letting the photoframe shrink the image. A little bit of time spent editing is well worth it, and the resulting images are small (you'll get 700 - 800 decent JPG images into the 128mB internal memory).

OK, it doesn't play MP4s and there's no sounds, but this is a photoframe, not a multimedia player. Another reviewer complained about the Samsung logo on the front, but it is subtle and, after a quick look at all my other electronic kit, I can confirm that they all have the manufacturer's name on the front. Hardly a deal-breaker.
