Introduction

I've owned this Logik L08DPF10 Digital Photo Frame for a few days now. In this review I will tell you what I think of it.

If you don't know what a digital photo frame is it's basically a small LCD screen designed like a photo frame that plays your photos from SD cards or USB memory. It's a good way of showing off your photos if you don't like using up your ink to print them off.

Specifications


  • 800x600 Screen Resolution
  • 4:3 Screen Aspect Ratio
  • Supports MS/SD/MMC cards and USB Flash Drives
  • Photo Rotate Function

Unpacking & Setup

In the box you'll find the frame, stand, mains adaptor and manual. The frame is relatively easy to set up, simply screw on the stand, plug in the mains adaptor, plug in your memory card/USB drive and turn it on. The photo frame automatically starts playing all the photos on your device in a slideshow.

Setup Ease: 5/5

Screen Quality

I wasn't expecting this frame to be as clear as it actually is. The 8" screen boasts a high 800x600 resolution so your photos look pin sharp every time. The screen is also LED backlit so the colours appear much clearer (as well as using less energy) compared to standard LCD screens). The frame has good contrast and overall the images are very detailed and pleasing to look at.

Screen Quality: 5/5

Design

This frame is also designed very well. The actual frame is made from a shiny plastic similar to that of most LCD TVs. There is a small hole at the bottom in the centre, which I don't know what it is for. If anyone knows please let me know! On the rear there's several navigation buttons as well as a play/pause button, return button and on/off switch. On the side at the rear is the memory card port, USB Port and Power adaptor port. Overall I feel this frame is designed very well.

Design: 5/5

Software

The software inside the frame is what makes everything work and allows you to navigate around as well as play the pictures. The software takes a while to get used to. After the welcome screen either;
a) You will see the main menu where you can choose a source or change the settings of the frame.
b) The frame will automatically start a slideshow.
This depends on whether there is a USB stick/Memory Card is in the frame at the time of startup.

Also getting out of the slideshow and into the setup menu (if you want to change the slide time, transition effect etc.) is a challenge because sometimes the return button works and sometimes you have to go to thumbnail view first. This is very confusing so the software in this frame could definately be improved.

Software: 3/5

Compatibility

This frame is designed to playback JPEG picture files. The resolution doesn't matter but it will scale down anything more than 800x600 so really there's no point in playing massive HD files through the frame as it will only downscale them. You can view pictures via either a USB Memory stick (or camera probably) or SD/MMC/MC card. There's no internal memory in this frame but as you can pick up a 4GB SD card for around a fiver that's not too big a blow.

Compatibility: 4/5

Overall

Overall, if you're looking for a simple, cheap and very high quality digital photo frame for less than £35 look no further than this Logik L08DPF10 photo frame. Maybe if you spend a bit more you'll find better frames but for this price this frame offers outstanding value for money. Overall I would highly recommend the Logik L08DPF10 Photo Frame.

Overall Rating: 5/5
