Advantages Good value at RRP, bargain at half the price
Disadvantages Slow and fiddly controls
The kodak P720 digital photo frame has been around since the beginning of 2009 with the RRP of the product at £69.99. I first bought one in January for myself when it was on offer at £29 and have been very pleased with this purchase.The frame comes in a traditional yellow and white colour schemed box, typical of all Kodak products. The box is just a bit larger than a normal camera box as you would expect seeing as it's a lot bigger. Included in the box, are the photo frame, a quick start guide, a frame stand, a power pack that can connect to either a UK mains adapter or a european 2 pin adapter. This is simple to put together, and easily slides and clicks into place. You get 2 different colour adhesive matte frames, which are stickers to place over the majority of the white frame border. These come in silver and a burgundy red colour. Lastly, included in the box is a few things sealed in a clear plastic case. This includes a thick user's guide, which consists of most european languages, a dry screen cloth, software for the computer as well as warranty information.
When you open the box, you see the quick setup guide sheet placed on top of the photo frame which is wrapped up in its protective plastic sleeve. This is cleverly packaged with the other items included in the box, and it is also very easy to put things back in safely should you need to with the ability to still close the box.Setup is easy if you follow the quick start guide; Take the frame stand and click it into place on the back of the frame. It is the central 'X' shaped hole in the middle (which allows you to set the frame up as portrait or landscape), being careful to not mistake it with the other holes which allow you to wall mount the frame should you need. The power adapter must be put together with your choose of mains adapter put firmly into place. It is located at the bottom of the unit, so should you wall mount it, access to the plug is easy to reach. It also means, that the trailing power cable is hidden behind the unit itself and hence making it look tidy as you look at it from the front. Turn on the power and the photo frame should instantly come to life, taking a few seconds until you reach the home screen. The inner frame around the screen lights up to indicate where you can 'touch' to select the controls. This controls light up red from underneath the border, and are by no means visible, however hard you look! Lastly, plug in an SD memory card, USB stick or connect your camera by USB cable and you are ready to view our photos on the screen.
The screen itself is 7 inches diagonally, hence the P720 model number. There is also a P820 model, which is quite simply the bigger 8 inch screen. The screen quality itself is quite reasonable. When you look at the screen close up, you notice the picture looking quite grainy and pixelated. However, don't worry, because as you put on your images and sit a coupe of feet from the screen, this is lost from the picture and the picture looks fantastically sharp and crisp.
