Anyone know if these are any good?

one thing about these photo frames, their nice to have, but isn't it a waste of electricity having it them on all the time?

12V at 1.4 A (guessing from the 1.3-1.5 spec) is 16.8Watts.

On 24/7 365 days = 8760 hours a year so it'll cost you about 150kWh/year -- which sounds like a bit of a waste(unless I've dropped a zero there). You'd probably turn it of more than that though, or at least have on a timer?

At 9p/kWh (probably on the high side) that'll cost £13.50/year. Electricity is a nice localised source of ungreenness (easier to clean up etc) (and getting better as we move back to nuclear etc) so it's probably the delivery vans that'll cost the enviroment the most :-)

These products will get much better with time. Envisage a photo frame that only consumed power during the cycle phase.

Evolving 'E-Paper' technologies will allow the static holding of an image with zero consumption of power in the near future.

This should also mean that they will require nothing more than a small battery to operate continually for monthes, therefore allowing you to put your photo frames all around the house... instead of tethering them all to a wall socket. :roll:

These have got 'Photo Frame' written on them. Just in case nobody already noticed, and no it's not removable.

an alternative suggestion:
Print off the photos you want in frames and buy a cheap frame.

pros:
detail in your photos(the resolution on this sucks)
its a lot cheaper short term
its a lot cheaper long term(i.e. free to run lol)
it doesnt have to be near a socket
it doesnt have to be plugged in
it will look better

I agree, poundland clip frames it is:lol:

Bought this for my mother and she loves it.
For less than £25 I think it was a great buy. This has been on a thread before with some folk slagging it off , I dont understand what folk want and expect for less that £25. Voted hot...again

Can i ask what the point of these are though? I can't see any benefit over a standard frame?

They display more than one picture, rotated after a preset delay. Good in principle but the ebuyer ones are a bit ugly imho.

yeah...

Not bad for the price. With the right brightness/contrast adjustment, picture quality is OK :thumbsup:

I have never really seen the point in these either, a pointless gadget.

Don't forget your 0.1% for going through Quidco LOL!!

Thanks:thumbsup:

Still can't see the point.

Can anyone help me here? I haven't used ebuyer before, and what I get at the checkout stage doesnt add up!

I have added batteries for 99p but this is what I get:

Shipping Band: £4.99
Shipping Surcharge: £4.00
Subtotal: £35.35
VAT: £6.20
Total: £41.55

then of course the £10 off for Google checkout, so what have I done wrong if this item should only be £24.50?

Any help appreciated

You need to select "Super Saver Delivery" in the drop down menu on that last page before you confirm.

I have ordered 3 of these. One to give to my son with his wedding photos on, one for daughter and one for self. Also bought 1GB SD cards at only £5.45 for each. Put them all through seperately with google checkout and got each order for £30.32. PC World advertising them at £69.99

Ahh! Sold now!:)

these are worthless fad toys in my opinion


why would you buy that frame when your PC can do the exact same thing better



also as one poster pointed out, they use some £13-15 worth of electricity a year! and if you turn it off or put it away there was no point buying it in the first place


personally id use that £13-15 to print 250 photos a year. much better!

i struggle to find my parents (in their 60s) good presents for their birthdays. they are computer literate to a degree, and like their digital camera, so a couple of weeks ago i got this frame for my dad's 65th birthday. my mum later emailed and quoted him saying it was "wonderful"! quite an achievement for someone who is insanely hard to buy for. he especially liked the fact that the images changed.

go for it, £25 is nothing, and father's day is coming up soon. i can see the benefit or buying a slightly more expensive frame which plays moving images, but these are great as pressies and can just be switched on at certain times or left on inexpensive timers for evenings etc.

Do you have a tv or just a picture on the wall that you stare at?

I bought one of these the last time it was posted here, about a month ago, and i sent it back almost immediately. I can't see the point in buying a frame (even tho its cheap) if it doesn't display the photos at native resolution!

480*234 is pretty rubbish, and i think it mighr be worthwhile waiting for the 640*480 or the 800*600 efforts to come down in price.

That's my tuppence worth.

if these were wireless and played divx/mp3 as well, and could run off of batteries i might be interested, but i really don't want a power brick hanging off my photo frame.

think i'll stick to xbmc2 through the telly.

Bought one of these for mother in law. The resolution is fine, it looks a lot better than some costing 3-4 times as much and saves the space needed for 50 -100 photos and frames. As for complaints about it costing £13.50 a year in electricity:p

Just beware that unless they have revised the item itself the advertised display times are rubbish. You have the option of short medium or long interval and the long still feels like a slideshow flicking away in your living room. Probably a good thing that mine only lasted 20 minutes before dying so back it went. Ebuyer shafting me on the original delivery and my return delivery on my refund wasn't so good.

I've seen some for £40 to 50 in PC world and the like which overall represent better VFM in my opinion.

I have one of these and every change I make (e.g photo interval, transition effect) only lasts for one photo - after that it returns to default.

Really annoying and not recommended - I just wanted it to change picture every 15 minutes and for there to be no cheesy "starwipe" style effects - just a simple change of picture....

but mine runs round and round changing after about 10 seconds and always with effects- So Annoying.

If I remember correctly these should only be on for a maximum of 8 hours each day, so you right away are looking at a 1/3 in your calculations. And as almost no one is going to leave it on for 8 hours (4 hours maybe) you're looking at even less.

The resolution may not be so great but to be fair it is only £24.50. You can't really go too wrong giving it as a gift. And the chances are a lot of people would be impressed as they haven't seen anything like it. So I'm thinking about it.

Great Deal for under £25!!

This has to be the fastest way to get new photos out to your technophobic parents.Simply take the photos of their big night out at the bingo, slap ur memory card in the photo frame and they're watching the photos of Uncle Bob's lap of honour at the Gala, before the Jones' have booted up the pc & printer.

I may yet buy a solar powered, high definition xvid playing version that is colour co-ordinated with the tv, but until then this looks a great buy.

Could someone tell me how to resize my photos so that they fill my digital frame. I have download iresize and changed the size to 1280x800 and ticked wide (as I read somewhere), but I still have a thin black line going all the way round the photo. I also have paintshop prop but have had no luck with this also. Sorry for being a bit thick, but would really appreciate some advice!

Try resizing to 720x400.

Or try 720x350, better off cropping though as the native resolution appears to be 2:1 if 480*234 is right.

Received my 3 today and very pleased. Came with a remote control and it has a power on/power off switch. Didn't need to resize my photos just put FILL or PAN SPAN and they fill the frame great.
