Summary: Bought this for my parents so they could take restoration photos of their car they restored to the car show with them. The photo frame presented a nice slideshow with optional music. We turned off the music and turned down the brightness but the charge still only lasted about three hours on the batteries. Besides that it has a good picturequality and electric adapter. It was hard to find one that ran off batteries and I see why. Limited battery life.
Summary: The frame itself is wonderful. BUT in very small, difficult-to-understand writing there are references to the need for adapters to permit use of some photo storage devices. If they are required, they should be included so that the user can be up and running asap. I will admit that I do not understand all technical references included with new products BUT this one comes off as utterly confusing.
Summary: The Sony digital photo frame is a good product. It is easy to load photos and intuitive in operation. While I am not a photographer, the photo quality looks very good to me. We have had this frame for 3 months now and it has been totally reliable for this short time. The ability to operate with internal battery is a nice feature when we want to take pics to friends. Recommended!
Summary: I have been able to use the view mode button manually with no problem. The buttons all seem to be a little stiff, so it might be necessary to hold it down for a couple of seconds, and be sure it has clicked down all the way. I really like this frame. The only reason I removed a star is because I find it kind of awkward to use. It works and it's logical but I keep getting stuck and having to think how to get what I want. This might become easier with practice.
Summary: The View mode button does not work manually and view mode can only be selected via remote control. As such as part of product improvement, manufacturer should consider designing the view mode button to be able to work by just pressing the button. Otherwise it is a very good digital photo frame.
Summary: Sony has written in their web site that this model has Bluetooth® Technology but this model does not have Bluetooth® Technology. One Sony tech. guy said this model does not have Bluetooth® Technology. They will remove this features from their web site. Very Bad. Don't purchase this - costly model.
Good, but cannot retain date / time settings when powered off
31 July 2011
Summary: Everything about this frame is excellent, but there is this irritant. You need to keep it plugged on all the time, as it cannot remember the date and time settings when powered off for some duration. Or if there is a power outage for a while, all your settings are gone. This is really a pain. It's as good as power off for some time (probably a few hours) is equivalent to "reset all settings to factory settings"....wow!! Wonder how they miss out on such basic things.
Summary: I bought this digital frame as a wedding gift for my girl friend and have pre-loaded bunch of her photos plus her favorite songs. The frame is easy to set up (less than 30 minutes) and the manual has clear descriptions. Remote control is very handy. Wish they have more options for slideshow display and battery operation functions. A little bit disappointed that the frame can play jpeg motion video only.
