Summary: I bought this as a gift, selected as one of fairly few battery-powered frames on the market (for Grandma to show pictures to her friends...!). Unfortunately the one sent presumably failed to charge properly or retain hold a charge, as the charging light never went off and the screen didn't work unless plugged into the mains adaptor. Didn't get a chance to try any of the other features. Seller graciously refunded the money and let us keep the frame anyway.
Summary: There are many cheaper digital frames on the market but, when compared side by side, the image quality on the Philps puts most to shame. We have had one up and running, switched on the whole time, for a year now with no problems. Build quality and functionality are also in a different league from the cheaper models around.
Summary: I bought one of these frames as a gift for my girlfriend. I thought it would be nice to put all our holiday photos onto it for her birthday. When it arrived I thought it was a good looking piece of kit, sturdy and well built. Turning it on, and using the quick start guide I had no problems getting it up and running.
Philips 7" High Resolution Digital Photo Frame (7FF1M4/05)

Summary: Unfortunately I have to agree with some of the other reviewers. After an initial enthusiasm I have ultimately been extremely disappointed with the reliability of this product. I received one as a gift and instantly thought it was great: It looked good, well built, excellent picture quality. On the negative side the software / user guides were poor, but I eventually worked out how to load photos onto a compact flash - I had 1,000+ photos on one disk.
Summary: Very easy to set up, just stick a memory card in and it is working straight away. There is no need to install anything on your computer which will no-doubt add to all of the rubbish that companies tell you to install with their products. You can plug it in via UBS and view the "hard drive" of the frame and work it form there or just use memory cards.
Summary: This is an excellent product - not the cheapest, but you gets what you pays for - had this out of the box and loaded with an SD card within 20 seconds - the controls are intuitive and the image quality is superb. No fancy MP3 gimmicks, but I just wanted a high quality display - which this certainly is.
Summary: I have had one of these for about 18 months. The picture quality is excellent and when compared with lesser makes it is superb. If you take lots of digital pictures you really need one of these. Just stick your SD card in the bottom with your pictures on and Bob's your auntie. HOWEVER, about 1 week ago the picture kept disapearing. After a number of attempts to fix this it has now died completely (reset doesn't work and the pc wont recognise it when it's plugged in).
Summary: Not being the type of person who writes reviews I feel I have to say how pleasantly surprised I was with this Philips Photo Frame despite what other reviewers say. It's outstanding resolution & brightness gets a "wow" from ALL who view it. The set-up & alteration controls are easy to use as the icons for specific functions appear in the correct order at the top of each screen - you then only have to press the corresponding button at the back - NO NEED TO KEEP TURNING THE...
