Good price considering £2 more than a non-freeview one, but who would watch TV on a 7" photo frame? =S

I've watched TV on my ipod


I've watched tv on my iPhone when out and about, or in bed... but a photo frames usually in the house, on a table or wall ... not something in front of your face or portable so not something you'd ideally watch TV on or even look at for more than 10 seconds. Seems a bit gimmicky though someone out there will probably have a good use for it lol £25 can't really complain!

Is this nationwide in asdas?

One might think of feeding from a 5G iPod or the like into this device but I think the spec is incorrect and that the model on sale does not actually have AV-In. Earliest models had a switchable AV socket that could be In or Out and I suspect the spec quoted is for that early model.

I believe that the stated screen resolution is also incorrect as the later model has higher resolution than earlier models. Is this the PFD7501, 8501 or 9501?

It is the 9501 that I picked up when this deal was posted a few weeks ago.
Has AV out, not in. Just (digital terrestrial) aerial input, and sd card.
The headphone-style audio out is kinda important because the internal speakers are so tinny.

But its amazing, a cheap photoframe that's also a media player and a DTV for £25. Hard to complain.
An analogue video input would be pretty useful though ... can it be hacked on?

Remember that in virtuallly all cases, if you want to take advantage of the freeview option you'll have to have a rooftop TV antenna feed into the back of this photoframe.

i got one and took it straight back
resolution was terrible
pictures had blocky edges compared to the 800x600 resolution tecnika 8" one i bought my mum and dad for christmas from tescos (the tecnika pics look awesome with very smooth edges)
i personally would pay abit extra for a 800x600 res one
as the tv will be a novalty and reviews say the tv aerial socket is in the wrong place and angle and is awkward when on a table top as the cable hits the table, but obviosly ok when wall mounted
wont vote cold though a its up to the individual
just giving an opionion thats all

Is it HD Ready ??? :roll:

you will need a decent aeriel for freeview but i am using a 15 year old loft aeriel from argos which cost about £12 for a freeview box in one of the bedrooms with no probs
cant get all freeview channels on my main tv downstairs with my main tv aeriel on the chimney though so just go through sky box
#13
Good bit of kit, got mine around 6 weeks ago from original Post, Good freeview tuner, nice pic and does all other thing like movies etc. Great price if you manage to find one.
#14
If its any help to anyone, have seen these on sale recently in two local Asda. Merthyr Tydfil (week ago) and Coryton, Cardiff (tonight).

Good unit, supposedly better as tv than as picture frame, haven't tried as picture frame myself. Tv reception good with decent aerial and probably much better if you've already had the digital switchover, aerial position awkward as per other comments but suitable cables are available to get round it. Plays video files very nicely, haven't tried many but xvid appears to work fine and picture is very good.

Few comments that sound is tinny from speakers, c'mon guys, its a bloody picture frame not a state of the art sound system!!! Sound is perfectly acceptable for what it is.

Lack of sub woofer is very disappointing and a ludicrous oversight from Elonex ...

Agreed (even if you did make me spit tea over my monitor) :thumbsup:
#18
If it's the 8501 it's a steal @ £25, I paid double that.
Mine is used as a TV for maybe 60 mins on news24 after I get up, Mainly to save on 42" plasma power. Ok i'm an old retiree ;)
It works reasonably as a photoframe also (not random though).
Perfectly acceptable picture.
#19
Bought this from the original post just after Christmas. Used mainly as a small TV and MP3 player in the kitchen.

It works fine for what it is. Decent as a TV - good picture with a cheap digital antennae aerial off ebay. Have downloaded various video files on it and it displays these very well. Haven't tried it as a photo frame as not really any need to in the kitchen.

The only criticism as has already been mentioned is the tinniness of the speakers I plugged a pair of speakers in and now enjoy great sound quality.

Well worth getting if you can find stock.
#20
I used the cable from a old pair of earphones, cut the earphone off & plugged them into a speaker, the sound is brilliant now.
I have mine in the kitchen , just to listen to the news when i'm washing up.The picture is great with an external areial.
#21
Had this around 6 weeks now , picture quality is perfectly fine unless the frame is stuck to your nose or your an idiot. The tv is input only and requires an aerial DOH !! , shame it doesnt have a bluray player built in or is HD or has an hdmi socket or a scart or any other socket you could care to mention that you would NOT normally get on a 25 quid photo frame. Voted hot.

480 x 234 (Pixel) Resolution


I find it very hard to believe the that the picture on these things, photos or Freeview, is going to be anything other than horrible. That's a **** poor low resolution, and a weird aspect ratio. (A typical widescreen TV or computer monitor has a resolution ratio of 16:9 or 16:10. This has a ratio of 2:1.)
#23
The resolution is wrong , its not 480x234 thats the 23 quid one , or maybe i just got a different one lol

is the one in my 25 quid box
#24
BTW don't be fooled into spending lots on a freeview digital aerial, any decent "wideband" or "wide frequency" aerial is fine - the specifications are pretty much identical only the "official" ones are three times the price.

BUT do consider spending extra on decent coax cable to keep interference out. Anyway, JFGI.

er!!...it ALL depends on where you LIVE..it might be alright for people like you living in a City, but out in the countryside, we can hardly get a decent freeview image even WITH a freeview digital aerial!...

It's the PFD9501. Just plugged mine in and setup the freeview, can't fault the picture quality

Box says 720x480 resolution
#32
Excellent, I didnt know they even made these. Really good if you have kids and they will like the novelty of having a little tv. And its great for use in a kitchen, next to you pc or even in the bathroom. Ive still got my old little casio handheld tv that sadly is no use anymore.

Same here. None on display but the assistant at the camera counter found one in the cupboard but I have just discovered that there was no AV cable in the box!

It should presumably be a 4-pole 3.5mm jack on one end so I've tried a cable I use for an iPod 5G (and also swapped the leads around to take account of Apple's non-standard usage) but I can't get it to display TV on an external set. :x

I dont think it comes with the AV cable - mine was brand new sealed and it didnt come with one...

Explain :whistling:
#37
on the asda website its showing on SALE for £49?
#38
Thanks OP. Missed out on this last time, but got one yesterday. Seems to work fine - speakers very quiet but option of using audio out. Freeview doesn't appear to tune in to stations off air - like tonight CBBC etc, but I guess these could be added later. No text despite there being a button, although might be a bit difficult to see! Not sure what resolution is for photo's (TV 720 x 480) but looked fine as long as you don't look too close. Great for £25.

Yet the box very clearly states "cable included" for the AV -> Composite cable.

The box does look slightly foxed and an earlier price label has been (mostly) torn off leaving one showing "was 49.55 now 33.03". It scanned @ 25, obviously.
#40
Thanks OP picked up two, missed the original post on this. No AV Cables in either boxes. Not fussed just want small TV to hang on wall.
