Sony picture frame review

S ony has been a well-known name within the consumer electronics market for quite some time now. It wasn't until recently, however, that the digital photo frame was first launched onto this market, and the demand for these kinds of devices is still growing. Sony is one of many companies trying to meet this demand, and so far, Sony has done an excellent job. Gradually more new versions are being launched, and the S-Series contributes by adding a number of picture frame models to its line. Sony is not only working on creating high-quality photo frames, the company is also determined to make the picture frames work flawlessly with every other Sony product. This enables printing a digital picture directly, without the need for a personal computer. Pictures made with a Sony digital camera can be viewed immediately on the photo frame, and the frames work seamlessly with Sony's BRAVIA HD television sets.

The fact that all the Sony products work together, is very positive indeed, and I am curious to find out as how this development will be carried out in the future, with an even more active integration of the photo frame.

Sony S-frame DPF-X1000 design

The first thing you notice about the Sony DPF-X1000 photo frame of the S-series is its sleek appearance. Examining the photo frame up front, does not reveal any buttons, however, the curved-edged device shows a slightly shiny display. It certainly has a quality look to it. The buttons are located on the right side of the device's back. Also the input/output functions are found here, which can be covered by two included lids. This allows inserting a memory card without it being visible for people looking at the screen. The front is dominated by the 10-inch screen with a maximum resolution of 1024 x 600.

The screen on this photo frame features an excellent size. Even the smallest detail of the displayed picture can be viewed without having to squint your eyes or use the zoom function. This Sony photo frame can be used both vertically and horizontally. A sensor ensures that the orientation of the pictures is automatically adjusted to the current orientation of the frame. The Sony DPF-X1000 photo frame is fingerprint-prone, however, with a bit of care when lifting it and the occasional wipe of a cloth, it's not really a big deal. The Sony S-Frame X1000 comes with a remote control to facilitate navigating through the menu.
