    Hi,

    Any suggestions on a decent digital photo frame, with reasonable battery life (or mains compatible) and some sort of timer function to switch on/off?

    Ideally about £50.:)

    Thanks .... Simon.

    Picked up a Kodak Easy Share SV1011 on amazon for 99.99 (although its on for 108 now i think.)

    Big 10" screen although I believe 7 and 8" are available.(under 100)

    Big difference between this and others was that the picture could be viewed from more angles than the other screens i.e. you didn't need to be facing it to give good picture clarity.

    From what I have seen it is worth paying that little bit extra.

    Hope this helps.

    I saw an advert on TV earlier this evening - Tesco are offering one for thirty-odd pounds.

    I didn't pay too much attention and hence can't give you the exact price nor any other details.

    Cheers,

    Martin.

    Seen this one on ebay, 10" for £100, seems good for the money with a decent resolution and looks pretty cool. What do you think?

    EDIT: Just bought it for the missus for xmas, will write a review. He also has 7" ones.

    It may be a bit small for the money, but Amazon are currently doing the 7" Philips for £100. No wifi/remote, but it does have a timer function and the best picture quality that I have seen on one of these frames.

    I got my frame today. The screen is very good for viewing pictures, they are nice and bright as you can see by the photos below. One of the LED's is a bit tempremental and he has offered my a replcement or £15 refund so I will probably take the refund and fix it myself it it bothers me. I will try and take a couple of pics.

    I will probaly only fit around 400 photos on the 1GB memory but most of my JPEGS are 8mp and 100% quality so I may reduce some down a bit if I want to fit more on it.

    Overall I am very happy for my first digital frame and would recommend it for the money, I haven't seen any others to compare it but is bright and the colours and vivid and natural, the pictures on it look very natural to my eyes and you can alter the tint and colour and brightness/contrast, the only thing I can't seem to do is random the photos at the moment.
