4.0 out of 5 stars Great value for money, 2 Dec 2008

This review is from: Philips 7FF3FPB/05 7 inch Digital Photo Frame (Electronics)
Like the previous reviewer, I've been looking at digital frames for a while now. There is a lot of rubbish out there, so be careful what you choose. This particular frame is of a lower build quality than some of Philips' more expensive frames being made almost entirely of plastic, but it certainly doesn't look cheap. The picture quality is perfectly adequate. The display is not the highest of resolutions, but there is little to complain about - I'd maybe gripe about the slightly clunky transition effects if I were being pedantic.

The frame does actually have a small amount of internal memory, so if you're only looking to store a handful of images you won't need an additional memory card. You can simply copy images from your camera's SD card or a USB stick to the frame itself. Most of the available space is initially taken up with sample images provided by Philips, so you would want to delete these. Unfortunately you won't be able to delete all of them because a bug in the firmware prevents you removing one. A firmware patch should have been available in October apparently but I was unable to find it on the Philips website. That said, the easiest thing to do is pop in a cheap SD card (you can get them for less than a fiver) and copy images straight from your PC to the frame using the USB cable provided. You don't even need to install any software; your PC will recognise the SD card as another drive, and the frame acts as a card reader/writer. Just drag and drop. Easy! You can also delete, add effects, and perform some minor edits using the frame itself.

At this price, there is no reason why you wouldn't want to buy this.

I've received an email from Philips to inform me that the firmware update is "delayed" (not that I really need it, but it's nice to have everything in perfect working order).
