I was bought the Sony DFP-E72N (not a very catchy name) photo frame as a present, but having looked up the cost, I see that it costs around £65 from Amazon.....so not cheap!

Unlike the other photo frame I have, this frame does have an internal memory of 128MB and so its possible to store a variety of photos all at one time. I find that I can generally store about 60 photos on the frame at any one time - which is really convenient because it means I can easily swap between photos depending on my mood and the situation. If I'm having friends over to stay, I might swap the photo to be one of the group of us together, and if I'm wanting to create a relaxing, romantic mood, then I might swap the photo to a landscape lake scene - or something like that. I'm sure you catch my drift. There is also a slideshow option if you just want the photo to be changed periodically.

I like that the frame is able to determine the orientation of the photo (landscape or portrait) without me having to mess around with the settings. Apparently, there is a orientation sensor that makes that possible.

Its easy to move images from my camera card to the frame because there is a multi-card slot which accepts my SD card. However, it also accepts Memory Stick and XD Media Cards - and so this covers most bases. Once you've plugged in the card, the frame automatically stores the images ready for use.

A nice touch is that you can choose from a choice of frame designs, as well as calendar views and clock views. The frame can either be black, brown or red - although I think the black frame looks the most classy and so I tend not to switch from this. I think it would be nice if there were a few more options....maybe some funky colours or some funky patterns which may be appealing for a party atmosphere or for a child's bedroom.

The image quality is "okay". I wouldn't say it was fantastic - but its passable. I just feel that a photo frame that costs nearly £70 should display photos at a higher resolution than this because some of the photos (which may be 10MB) are actually a little fuzzy and non-crisp....which is a bit irritating. This resolution is 800 pixel - 600 pixels, and I would like to see it higher. The size of the frame is decent (7 inches x 5 inches) so this makes it ideal for standard photo size.

Overall, I would say this frame is okay, but its not great. If they could improve the photo resolution quality then this would be a good photo frame, but for me, image quality is all. It also lacks a little inspiration.
Summary: Just okay.
