Summary: Won this item at a company X-mas part. Physically its very nice and looks great. Picture quality is very good. However the Sony you see at the bottom of the pics was light up even when the frame was stood vertical. Anyways, ours was less than a year old when it suddenly stopped working. Quick Google shows this isn't that uncommon of a problem. Sony's repair wants $89 to fix it.
Summary: I loved the product out of the box, easy to set up with good features. Unfortunately, after 1 1/2 years of operation, the frame shows only multicolored vertical lines. Sony offers to fix it for more than the original purchase price.
Summary: Like the product, but had trouble keeping the pictures in order rather than a random viewing of everything. Since we put pics on chronicling a trip we took, we wanted the pics in the order of the tour. Our only complaint. Everything else worked just fine.
Classy Look, But A Littly Clumsy For Older Folks To Operate

Summary: I selected this Sony pic frame after spending a goodly couple 3 hrs or so agonizing over the poor reviews of almost all the others on the market including other Sonys. I must say I was pleased with the product out of the box and the packing/presentation was very good. The unit operated well and for the most part displayed all of the some 3200 pics on the Xd card quite well.
Summary: I'm not one for wordy reviews, but I figured I would just leave a note for future buyers. This frame is very nice, though I'm only speaking from one day of use. The settings are really easy to configure, and getting the pictures on the frame was as simple as plugging it into my computer with a USB cable (not included by the way). The frame is slick looking and just the right size for a picture frame; though the giant Sony logo on the front is rather annoying.
Summary: I purchased this frame for my son as a going off to college gift. I found it easy to use and didn't even read the manual much at all. I just loaded photos (jpegs) onto a memory card, slipped it in and voila! He loves it. In fact, he sent me a text the other day that read he'd spent three hours just staring at it. Maybe he likes it a little too much. I would recommend trying to upload photos that are either mostly landscape or mostly portrait.
Summary: I bought the 7" Sony knowing it would have a crisp picture. It does. However, the display is smaller than I imagined. That, plus the non-photo aspect display ratio of 16:10 loses chunks of the viewing area when showing typical 4:3 digital photographs. The display is small enough that you need to be no further away than arms length to really see what's going on in the photographs. It's better for a desk frame than a living room frame.
Summary: I had many 7" digital photo frames for my office desk in the past. Yes, I only look for 7" because my goal is seeing my family pictures with a small frame when taking rest at work . After trying many differnet brands such as Coby, eMtion, Philip, and Viewsonic. Sony DPF-F72 is the one setting on my office desk in the end. The reasons are: 1. Resolution 800x480, it makes huge difference on the photo quality comparing with other 480x234 frames. 2.
