This is a small gadget that can be (IMHO) great Christmas present. Screen is small but if I can watch movies on my Cowon's screen (1.5") then photos should be OK-ish as well.

Should make nice addition to any office desk. Don't forget Quidco (4%).

Here is the description from MyMemory: 2 x AAA batteries power the Photo Display in stand-alone mode. Auto-off power save feature when operating in single photo battery mode. Runs continuously on slide show mode or USB power. 1 CR2032 button battery powers the Time & Temperature LCD Display, which is always on in either stand-alone or USB power modes.

Specification: - 1.4" Colour LCD Photo Display | - 2nd LCD displays Temperature and Time | - 5 sec Backlight | - Alarm/Hour Chime.

Good spot Kommunist. Like you say the screen is a bit small but at this price it makes a very nice gift.

That's a great wee gadget :)

Nice one :) Thanks Kommunist!

2x AAA batteries batteries are available on their site but the 1x cr2032 isn't. Does it arrive with these? As they'll obviously be needed if it's a Christmas pressie ;-)

I have plethora of AAA batteries and also got a couple of CR2032 (these are 49p at SVP) :)
When this thingie arrive, I'll post here my review (as I usually do anyway).

Bought one of these last time it was posted on here, its now sitting in my drawer. The screen is far to small and very dificult to see in the light unless you look at it head on. Wouldn`t recommend it.

How much would you sell it for? ;-)

Just received this toy.
It looks like it is made by Mars Semiconductor Corp (at least that's what software says) but I can not find this device on their website. JMTek is probably another possible make as they have FAQ for it, but it is not in their product list.

Anyway, the device looks nice and small. It is about a size of a pack of superkings cigarettes. It came with silver 'MyMemory' sticker on its base, which I believe can be easily removed.

On its front, there are two displays - one is colour (CSTN, passive matrix) one and another is black/grey for temperature/clock.
There are 2MB of memory in this device, you can fill it with whatever phots you like. No previous cutting/cropping necessary. It comes with some sort of ugly-looking software, which really works (to my surprise) and allows to select pictures and also to choose what part of this picture can be transferred to device (cropping).
Once transfer was done (via USB cable, included) then you can start slideshow. Press and hold 'up' or 'down' buttons, depending on slideshow direction (forward/backward). Pictures are changed with simple top-to-bottom transition, which looks OK. The screen isn't really bright, so you might want to adjust photos prior to transfer. The screen is tiny so if you want to download people's pictures into photo frame, it is best to crop it around face, then it is clearly visible. BTW, bright ladscape photos look very good in this thingie.

When pictures on screen are changed, PD (photo display) show battery status and picture number like '14/24'.
It shown for about a second, then disappears. Each photo in slideshow mode is shown for about 5 seconds and this time can not be changed.

The thermometer is a joke. Plug USB to device and see temperature climbing to 30-35 degrees Celsius. In normal condition (i.e. no USB) it is about 5 centigrade above what 'proper' gauge shows. There is no way to calibrate it. Right now it shows 29.9 centigrade :) Welcome to Bahamas..

There is also an alarm clock, which I haven't tested yet and time display. It seems to be working fine :) There is also time display backlight but it isn't particularly bright.

There are two types of batteries needed for this thingy - one CR2032 and two AAAs. Both types are included.

The manual says that in battery running mode slideshow only works for 120 seconds. This is probably mistake as it is working for about 40 minutes on my desk. Or mine unit is simply broken :)

Overall impression is that PD is a nice gadget, especially as a XMas gift. It looks good on office desk (once Mymemory sticker removed). Just do not expect too much from it.
