- Great digital picture frame!
This is a great digital picture frame. It is very easy to use and looks nice. It isn't nearly as thick as I thought it would be. It made a perfect gift for my parents as they love how they can scroll photos on their computer monitor when it's not in use. The size is nice as well. They are using it in their great room and it's not too distracting....more info
- Rich features
Auto on/off, auto photo orientation detection, auto rotation depending on orientation of frame, fit-to-display...great features. And a very good display....more info
- Most features work nicely but...
Sony DPF-D70 7-inch Digital Photo Frame
So far all the photo features work nicely and the process of uploading photos from a computer work seamlessly. I am not sure how long the remote will continue to work as the "buttons" are small and hard to isolate and push down.
One of the clock features (old analog type) that my in-laws particularly liked started pixelating or breaking apart on the screen so that you could not see the clock anymore. Email advice from Sony to do a "re-set" did not solve the problem. We do not use that feature any more and selected a digital like clock with the date instead.
Other than that, I am satisfied with the product. ...more info
- My son loves this frame!
Before purchasing this frame for my son, I researched digital frames for weeks, on the internet. I listed pros and cons of all the frames which had the desirable features, as well as good customer reviews, then consulted my other son for advice. He agreed with me that this was the hands-down favorite (although also one of the most expensive). Since giving the gift to my son for his graduation, he has repeatedly told me how much he loves it, and assured me of the excellent quality of this frame (as has his wife); it is also a classy-looking frame. With their second daughter on the way, I know it will get lots of use! ...more info
- Simply Very good - you get what you pay for
There are many digital picture frames on the market. Most no-name brands look OK from 4 feet away, but have seriously disappointing resolution at close-up. This sony has very good 1024-600 screen resolution and vibrant colors that hold up even when watched from a few inches away. Its stunning.
I managed to copy well over 1700 pictures into its internal memory and still have 220M of the 870M left. That is much more than the 1000 pictures that Sony claims. The device quietly reformats the incoming pictures into it a size. This happens without any noticeable quality degradation. I'm impressed.
Setup is easy, and the thing has many cool features such as auto-rotation. The main drawback is the $[...] price tag which is double that of a Chinese picture frame. Add another [...] and you could buy a netbook or a secondhand notebook computer that does the same and more. But if you can spare the have money, this is this the very good choice. ...more info
- Sony DPF-D80 - what a beauty
The first digital photo frame I ever own but I'm really impressed by the design. Just a few points that may not have been touched upon by other reviews:
(1) On Mac, using iPhoto to export pictures is a breeze. Each file is roughly 500 k with Maximum quality - Large format JPEG, which means that the internal 256 MB memory stores ~500 pictures. I've tried lower quality compression that produced smaller files; the pictures still looked very good.
(2) The auto-rotation works like a charm.
(3) I agree with other reviewers that I wish that there is a way to select sub-directory for display.
(4) Folding the stand back to its storage position is a bit tricky. I was afraid that the plastic housing was going to break. Remember to push the ball-joint downward till it clicked before returning the arm to the storage receptacle.
(5) Hard to compare to those $50 models sold at Wal-mart, but I think that the price for this model should come down more. On the other hand, if you can not stand a piece of ugly crap, you will be pleased with the aesthetics of this Sony DPF....more info
- Good Digi Pic Frame
..The S-Frame is a nice simple hassle free digital picture frame. I had mine up and running in no time once I got my hands on it. I exported snaps directly from my Macbook (iPhoto app) directly to the S-Frame connected through a USB cable.
Now the Bummber!!
The picture frame has a Clock + picture display mode and a Calendar + picture display mode - Well nothing wrong with that......
.......BUT in the "Clock + Picture" mode guess what the clock displays - NO not your local time....it displays the time the picture was taken.......how VERY useful!!....duh!!
AND in the "Calendar + Picture" mode ....you guessed it....you get the calendar date on which that snap was clicked........HOW DUMB is that?????
Good Quality Pic frame for folks who want a plain Vanilla pic frame with VERY VERY good display quality. Also has a collage mode - works well.
But do throw your plans of having a Calendar/Clock + Picture display, into the nearest dust-bin!
Am I happy with the buy?.....YES VERY!
Have Frame ..Can Display.... Tarzan Happy!...more info
- New x1000 still doesn;t display progressive jpegs :(
Nice, good pics but you need to ensure you save any edited jpegs as baseline, NOT progressive (same old problem with all the picture frames)....more info
- Fantastic Frame
I looked at a lot of digital frames not only on Amazon but at different stores as well. This one has met all my expectations and I am very pleased. I have ordered a second one for my daughter-in-law because of the quality and excellence of it's performance....more info
- Good picture quality, but not recommended due to image compatibility issues
First of all, the image quality is good. Now that we got that out of the way, I felt very compelled to write this review because as a few others have stated, this frame has compatibility issues with files that have been editted via photoshop, or even simple renaming files like infranview. all i actually did was just download files off of an online photo album (smugmug), and the files would load with question marks. Some have experienced the same, and as one reviewer said (Alex), he had to convert the files to BMP in order for them to show up. When loading photos, it takes a while for the files to transfer, or even recognize external media. The auto correct mode also does not work very well. I got this as a present for my grandparents, and luckily, they wont be tinkering with it much often. But for a photo person like myself, be careful of the hassle you'll experience with this frame. For a $200 frame, I expect more from Sony. Once again, for those who have bought this frame and experiencing the ? mark issue with file recognition, you need to convert the files to bmp in order for them to load correctly. I found a review on here that saved the day for me, so i hope this helps somebody else as well. ...more info
- Love My Sony Digital Photo Frame
Sony DPF-D70 7-inch Digital Photo Frame
I love my new frame and I'm also very impressed with the simplicity of the set up. I had read a few reviews on this particular frame where folks were having difficulty using .jpeg files but fortunately I didn't encounter this problem. I also have modified quite a few of my pics with a photo editor and had no problem displaying these pictures either.
I'm alround 100% pleased with the quality, style, ease of use and appearance of the frame and would recommend it to others....more info
- Outstanding Clarity and Brightness
photo rotates with frame
Sony light can be turned off
Random view - photos appear in random order
Clock and calendar view
Frame perimeter is not wood
backstop leans frame only about 10 degrees. Would prefer if it leaned back a bit more.
I highly recommend this frame. ...more info
- Do Not Buy This!
As other reviews has stated, this picture frame by SONY will NOT show any JPEG images that have been altered, created or saved in your computer! This goes for anything you do in Photoshop?. This is unacceptable. Especially if you are an artist and want to display images you created digitally. Or if you have done anything to a photo to make it nice and unique. This frame is for housewives (and stay at home dads) who want to plug in a camera and nothing more, not for anyone concerned with real digital imagery.
It also does not support a USB stick and the packaging makes it seem as if it does. Too bad, it looks great. I have it all packed up and ready to return to the store. Now I have to figure out which company makes the best digital picture frame....more info
- Awesome Product
Sony DPF 80 is exactly what I was looking for, shipping was on time and pictures look great, will buy again....more info
- The nicest frame I've seen
I had been on the fence about getting a digital photo frame for almost a couple of years now, but it seemed as though the ones I thought were affordable were also a bit cheap looking. I happened across the Sony DPF-V900 frame at an electronics store, and immediately fell in love with it. "Affordable" needed to be redefined.
The frame is striking, but without being over the top or gaudy. The image quality is absolutely top notch. The only LCD I've seen that looks quite as good is on my MacBook Pro. The function buttons are intelligently placed, and hidden from view at most angles, and there isn't an obvious sensor on the front for the remote control.
In terms of features, you get a mixed bag that keeps this from being a five star product. The image correction is hit-or-miss. More often than not, the face detection works, but usually at the cost of degrading the rest of the image (fortunately, this isn't an automatic setting). There are loads of settings that let you customize how pictures are displayed, whether or not the Sony logo is visible, automatic power on / off, and so on -- but navigating the menus is a bit of a chore. You can easily spend about 15 minutes getting it set up just the way you want.
One particular note: There's a display mode that lets you see a clock next to your images, but the clock doesn't show current time. It *should* show you the time the picture was taken, but it assumes the timestamp on the file is the correct time, not the EXIF data. Personally, I'd prefer a clock.
Getting photos on to the DPF-V900 is incredibly simple. Connect a mini-USB cable to your Mac or Windows computer, and it mounts as a drive for drag-and-drop copying. Or, it'll read just about every memory card format out there.
This frame is squarely targeted toward people who are willing to pay extra for aesthetics. Unless you really appreciate the way this frame looks, you can absolutely find frames out there that cost less and do more. But if you like the design and are looking for the best image quality around, you can't go wrong with this....more info
- Sony Digital Picture Frame- User Friendly!
This digital frame is simple to set up and use even for a techno-lame
person. The picture quality is excellent and the color brilliant. It looks fabulous especially if you can somehow hide the electrical cord. We bought one and then bought two more as Christmas gifts. A great gift that keeps giving!...more info
- Fabulous Picture Quality -- High Overall Quality!
I love this frame...I mean, I really, really love this thing. Bought it for myself for Christmas for my desk at work, and am so glad I chose Sony. I first thought it seemed a bit pricey, but I now feel it was worth every penny. I am very impressed with the resolution and super-crisp images (so many digital frames are grainy, or have poor resolution) This frame is the perfect size for my desk...not too small, but not so big that I can't keep it on my desk. The frame has a clock and calendar feature too (which can be switched on or off.) My co-workers were very impressed with the bright, backlit screen, which flatters every photograph. It holds zillions of high-resolution pictures (depending on file size) which I can watch as still pictures, a random slide show, and in other modes too. The remote control is nice, but not really necessary unless you need to change settings from a distance, and the buttons aren't very sensitive -- you really have to PRESS the buttons. If you don't want to mess with the remote, the settings are easily changed from the buttons right on the frame itself (which are on the back, and not visible on front, which I really like.) Another thing I like is being able to turn off the Sony logo (it's really bright!) If I get tired of the slideshow, I can press a button and scroll until I find a favorite picture, and leave it on that one for awhile. The index view is great for locating a picture quickly. I love the smooth, black glass surface -- it's very clean, modern and sophisticated, and the black frame really sets off your pictures. I personally love bright, backlit photographs, but there is an option to turn tone it down if you prefer. These are the only negatives, and why it didn't rate 5 stars: It is a bit of a challenge to scroll through all the settings, as there are so many of them. So far I haven't been able to figure out how (or if) I can slow down the slide show -- the pictures only stay up for 5 seconds before moving on (for single shots, you can easily set how long you want to view the picture before it changes to the next one, from 3 seconds all the way up to 24 hours!) And for some reason, I can't get the calendar to be the right date! I'd like to enjoy the slideshow pictures longer before they change. That's it for the negatives! This is a wonderful frame with beautiful pictures -- a fantastic product! ...more info
- Digital Photo Frame
This photo frame is a good deal. We shopped at Walmart & Target but this one was a little lower price for the quality. Easy to use-just follow instructions for putting pics on it. The remote works well. We bought it for my mother in law in the nursing home and put all her family's photos on to scroll for her. I also purchased an 8GB Memory Card so there would not be an issue of not enough space for all the photos. Great conversation piece when people visit her!...more info
- Worth The Money
There are so many frames on the market at this point that I found it a bit difficult to decide which one to get.
The range in price is fairly large and I finally decided to spend a bit more for this one since I have a couple of Sony products and have been pleased with them. I found it to be a good selection with a great picture and the bit more for this has been made up in the fact that I am really enjoying the photos and having them on my desk at work.
Easy to set up and use also......more info
- Best digital frame, hands down.
A long time ago I had a Sony Walkman that I loved. I used it for years. I haven't loved many Sony products since then. But this frame is awesome. It is by far the best digital frame on the market. The screen is sharp and bright. The frame looks classy on the desk. Highly recommended and worth the extra money....more info
- Expensive... but it looks great.
The frame was easy to setup. I normally like to read the directions for new electronics but I was able to simply hook the frame up to my Macbook, create a new folder and copy the "2008" pictures that made the cut. My lack of awareness of feature concerns beyond picture quality let me buy this frame without reservation.
This frame is in my wife's office on her desk and fits in well with the decor. ...more info
- Very nice Digital Photo Frame
Per reviews, I splurged on this item and spent more for it than other comporable models. I am not dissappointed. As typical with SONY, the picture quality is excellent--bright, accurate colors. The software is fairly intuitive, though a little clumsy. We put photos from a MAC directly by pluggin in, and also by dropping pix from a Windows machine to a SD card, then from SD to the photo frame. The calendar and clock functions are nice for an office desk, but we use the "slide show" function the most for home use. Highly recommend this product if you want a high quality dig frame....more info
- Expensive, elegant and easy to use
This is a great digital camera to give as a gift to someone special. Sure, the price is a bit steep, but you definitely get your money's worth. It has an elegant and timeless design that you will feel comfortable displaying anywhere. And, it's easy to use. Within an hour my husband and I had it loaded with his favorite pictures. ...more info
- great digital picture frame
I purchased three of these digital picture frames, 2 for gifts and one for myself :) The frame is extremly bright and has really nice features - like setting when it should turn on and turn off automatically so as not to keep running when people are asleep or not at home. There is also a nice calendar view which shows the day/time when each picture was taken. This picture frame supports SD cards so you can use the memory card from your digital camera and immediately display your latest pictures. This picture frame also comes with a handy little remote which can control which pictures to scroll to and allows you to turn the frame on/off remotely....more info
- Happy with the digital picture frame
The Sony 9" digital picture frame looks very elegant, easy to use and has a lot of clarity. I would definitely recommend this to any one seeking to purchase a digital picture frame....more info
- Good but could be better
Same problem as everyone else with the clock and when you turn on the unit it always start in the same picture; it does not take into account where it was previously.
Everything else was fine, including the price....more info
- Great pictures but complicated requirements...
The Sony DPF-D70 displays photos nicely.. but, if you own a Mac and are accustomed to merely clicking and dragging files into a drive.. you'll be sadly disappointed. The DOS Fat formatting of the internal memory can't store all you'd like in one quick transfer. You have to separate the photos in files or folders to use all the memory. Also, if you do your photo editing in PhotoShop you must save the jpg's as standard or optimized. Never save them as progressive jpg's! The Sony will not be able to display the images. Sadly, the instructions that come with the product don't tell you this. I had to find out on the web. Once photos are loaded however they do look nice....more info
