Great digital photo frame,
This review is from: Digital Era "12"" Natural WOOD Photo Frame" Digital Photo Frame (Camera)
This digital frame, supplied by Digital Era, arrived well ahead of the projected delivery time and I would have no qualms about purchasing from them again. The frame itself looks almost identical to the Digi View black frame range (costing just £5 more than the 10.4" version) except for the real wood over-frame, which is a really neat job and looks great from the front. The resolution is 800x600 and, although I would have preferred 1024x768, this is adequate to provide a good looking picture, even close up.
The manual is the usual basic roughly-translated affair but is enough to get you up and running. The remote and on-screen menu system is pretty intuitive and shouldn't pose any problems for the majority of people.
The renderer does a pretty good job of sizing photos to fit the screen but takes a second or two to do so. By saving 800x600 size versions of your pics the loading speed is greatly reduced.
The frame drops one star for not being able to fit my 2.2Gb microdrive in the slot, even though the manual says it should. It reads my SmartMedia & XD cards fine and had no problems reading from a 2Gb USB flashdrive via the included mini-usb adapter.
I've not had a chance to try the music or video options yet, though I didn't buy it to use those particularly. The manual says it will play MPEG 1, 2 & 4 video formats and MP3 format audio.
