Summary: This is my second digital picture frame from Philips. The first one I got as a gift and enjoy it every day. I bought a 2nd one to give to my mom for her birthday-will load it with pictures of all her favorite things. She doesn't have a computer so she cannot view digital pics that the family takes online so this is perfect for her. It is really easy to use and the picture is clear and crisp.
Summary: I had the 8 inch LCD frame in the same series and it broke due to power issues in just 6 months....when i called the Philips customer service, each rep that i spoke to routed me to another saying this is not the division which handles this model....in fact the division which handles digital frames also did not handle this series....They would pass my call on even before knowing the issues with my device...And to top it all the rep was rude.... Bottom line...
Summary: I bought 2 for Mother's Day gifts for my mom and mother-in-law; wanted a small size because of price and so that they can take them to work if they want. The quality was not nearly as good as the 7-inch Philips digital picture frame that I own, which was disappointing. Also, it only stores about 3 photos in the frame itself--to have a slideshow with many photos, you must either have a thumb drive sticking out of the back or buy a memory card.
Summary: Why does this item -- a 5.6" Philips Digital Frame -- have soooooo many reviews for other digital frames by Philips rather than for this specific Philips frame -- which is 5.6", not 7", not 6+", not wide screen, and not any other kind or size of frame except for 5.6"? It's not at all very helpful (actually, a tremendous waste of time if you are even willing to make the effort) to wade through reviews of items that are very clearly not this item.
Summary: This newer model is no comparison to the one I bought in May 2008. The picture quality is terrible and it can't store any pictures because it has no internal memory. I guess I got suckered into buying it because it was described as the "newer model". Newer doesn't always mean better. It's going back - so much for my parent's Christmas gift.
Summary: I bought this for a simple frame for my mom. There is a stupid baby picture (preloaded) that can't be deleted. Philips has a 'fix' for it, but you have to buy an SD writer and download software from the internet, then upload it to the frame. I've done this and spent 45 minutes on the phone with their technical support folks (the folks from USA, not India) and they still have not been able to help me get rid of this preloaded photo.
Summary: cant compare to any others, i've not owned any others, BUT still not as great as I had hoped..here's my 2 cents... PICTURE QUALITY Not very clear unless the picture you snapped happened to be with a real nice high end camera. Me I take pics with my Olympus digital and most are a bit grainy when viewed on here, even pics taken by a professional are grainy, some pics come out upside down even thought when viewed on my PC were not upside down.
Great Bang for the Buck with some Caveats-5.6" Model; focus for Mac Users

Summary: This review is for the 6FF3FP(B or W): How purchased: Online for $30; elsewhere Purpose: Gift for elderly parents and grandparents; setup needed to be super easy with the thought I'd attach a memory card, ship it to parents. I needed to know that they could plug in and use with no, I repeat NO USE OR NEED FOR A MENU. I am in my 40's; my mom and grandmother are in 70 and late 90s....they are as non-technical as you can get.
Summary: The photo quality on this photo frame is terrible. I purchased this photo frame as a gift and was too embarresed by the picture quality to give it to my grandmother. It distorts every photo image and turns peoples eyes and lips very dark. Even worse is the high cost of the item. I ordered a 7" frame with a much higher resolution for a lower price and was amazed by the quality. Now I am left with this photo frame sitting in my house with no idea what to do with it.
Summary: Great little product. More than what you would expect for the money. I really like the crisp white frame, contrasts nicely with the black screen when it is off, looks even better with your fav photos showing. The automated features work well and I have not had to change anything since I set the date and time, works like a charm.
