Summary: The frame actually worked great for about a week. I then decided to change the display auto on/off settings from the default setting (on all the time) to custom (off at 9 P.M./ on at 5 A.M.) After changing the settings, I left the room for about 30 minutes and came back to find that it had turned itself off. When I turned it back on it would not play the photo show. It would only display a single pic and you had to manually change it to another picture.
Summary: I purchased the Sony DPF-HD1000 specifically because it is advertised as having a 10.1" diagonally meaasured screen, I wanted nothing less. Most of the reviews were very positive and influenced my decision to buy the unit. When I unpacked the unit I immediately thought that the frame looked a little small to have a 10.1" screen. I measured the screen and found it to be 9.1" diagonally, not 10.1".
Summary: It was clearly made for an Asian market. Instructions were not in English. Came with (I think a Chinese power supply, with a un iversal adaptor. Was not the quality of previous Sony units. Advertising was totally misleading, on the website and on the box and unit itself; this clearly indicated a 10.1" screen (which my older similar higher product quality unit had) but the screen was clearly not that size.
Summary: There's nothing wrong with this picture frame. It's no different from the competition. That means it's a me-too design with an okay screen and an interface that belongs in 2002. Viewing angles are okay but not great. There is some stippling on colour gradations that suggests it is not displaying true colour, but the overall subjective effect is good enough at typical viewing distances. Resolution is relatively low but this matters less than you might suppose with photos.
