Dodgy resolution. Better than all those 480x234's that keep getting posted. But still a different aspect ration to every digital camera known to man.

So either all your pics will be stretched, or you'll have to edit them all to fit the screen without stretching, or you'll have black bars down the sides, or you chop everyone's heads off. No-one has a widescreen digital camera, so what's the use of a widescreen photo frame?

Also, it's not out until 5th October....

Thanks - I like this look of this and am seriously tempted.

Heat added.

Cheers again,

From reviews it automatically sorts the photos to correct resoloution etc when you upload them to the inbuilt memory so you dont need to do it yourself

I did say it was preorder :)

Dont think for the money there is anything that comes close under £100 (might be wrong here im no expert !)

I'm confused also. There are loads of digital photo frames with 800x480 resolution.
I don't see the problem with this. Looks great to me :?

This is the most stylish frame I think I've seen. Plus, the resolution is better than the regular cheapies. Voted hot!
#7
This actually looks and sounds quite decent and a big step up from a lot of the cheapo gimmicky ones.
#8
Toshiba's screens are fantastic! I saw several frames lined up in John Lewis and PC World and the Toshiba was easily the best for colour, detail and viewing angles in both stores. The only thing that put me off buying one was the price - £89 or thereabouts.

I don't see a problem with resolution. I'll just do a batch resize job in Photoshop (any decent image application will let you do this - probably GIMP, which is free) and the photos will look their absolute best with no scaling necessary and save on memory card space.

Obviously a hot from me and rep to the OP!

Still no infrared sensor to switch it off when no-one's around - what a profligate waste of energy :x
#10
I've ordered it, for the price it appears a good deal!!

Thankas Man!!

Just ordered with Demolition Man on DVD for £47.98 :thumbsup:

The only thing that concerns me is that frame...

Can it be taken off? Does it have a leg at the back to stand it up? Really don't want to be wall mounting this...
#17
Hmm, articles I read (one adated September 5th 2007) suggest this was Toshiba's first frame so is likely an earlier model of the ones I saw a few months back and possibly not as good.

Here is a picture of the rear. Looks like it can put horizontally or vertically.

This is somewhere between 16:9 and 16:10 widescreen resolution which is nothing like the ratio that most digital cameras use ; for instance my fuji takes 2560x1920 resolution photos - which is a 4:3 ratio. I have an 800x600 digital photo frame which displays my pictures exactly as I took them without leaving part of the screen blank or 'automatically' cropping the photos.
A few cameras do offer 16:9 ratio nowadays which would suit this frame perfectly; and if you want to use the frame for watching Divx movies rather than showing photos it's also good.
The majority of lcd panels are for tv use so panels in this resolution must be cheaper to obtain.
#20
What I'm interested in regarding slideshows is random.. I want to be able to turn off and on, so I don't want to be viewing the first 10 photos each time from a batch of 1000s every time I switch it on.

From what i can make out, if you read all the articals they are all just release news, its only just been released as i can only find it for sale in about 3 or 4 places.

Heres the manual >

Very hot. Thanks. Ordered via Quidco.
#23
Is there any limit to the size of the card that you can put in it (friend has an older one that can only go 2gb's, whereas I'm hoping for 8gb but at least 4gb's)?

Wow - that's one really, really useless user manual ;-)

The manual does at least say SD cards up to 2gb.
#25
ta :)
#26
Any suggestions on something cheap to buy with this to get it over 50quid (ie, 1p lol)? a memory card maybe, not sure which one tho. thanks.
#27
this looks good. was thinking of using it as an alarm clock. what do you think? As long as the screen goes black so I can sleep...
#28
georgeous looking screen, easily the best IN THIS PRICE RANGE.

For all the resolution nay-sayers - find me a similar spec with the "correct" resolution for under £50 then I'll happily start knocking it ;)
#29
Thanks heat and rep added as gone for this. Looks great.

A memory card is a perfect suggestion to take it over £50!

This 2GB Sandisk SD is ideal at £5.99

1 watt speakers! Yes!!

Will Play take the payment automatically or wait till they post it out?

On despatch.

This looks like another price error from Play.

The Sony headphones that were incorrectly priced were sent a lot earlier that the supposed release date.

voted hot. looks nize. one question though, has anyone who bought digital frame actually keep using them or does the novelty wear off??? (i haven't owned one yet!)

Sadly for us the novelty wore off - Fantasic as the look and feel of the frame was the user interface and software limitations on the Ality frame I bought made it too much of a hassle for us to keep using. You can't really tell from the user manuals - I'd say be prepared to send it back under the distance selling act if you don't get along with it - from my experience if you have problems with it they'll just get more aggravating.

I don't think there's any risk of it being a price error - it looks like they've acquired a batch of old model frames and are selling them at a pretty decent price.
#38
I still say it's pants for a photo frame to use a widescreen aspect ratio.

If the whole screen is used to display a photo it will be stretched so everyone will look like fat gits.

If the photo is displayed at the correct aspect ratio then you'll have black bars at either side.

Frankly yes, at this price point it's the best of a bad bunch. But I'd steer clear if you don't want to be disappointed.

I'm with you in saying widescreen is pants if you don't take widescreen photos - but is there an alternative (even if more expensive) that you'd recommend?

It's quite a lot to write it off for just one thing. If the previous Toshiba I saw is anything to go buy this is streets ahead of similarly priced competition in terms of image quality and viewing angles. It was better than the Kodak ones at almost double the price of this.

Personally, I'll only have a small number of photos on this and I won't be changing them regularly so I don't mind cropping them to fit the screen ratio and resizing them to fit the screen resolution.
