Review of the My Media 8 inch Digital Photo Frame

Manufacturer: My Media
Model: 8 inch Digital Photo Frame
Price: £109.99

Accepting all of the major media cards, this digital photo frame will display images, run slide shows and even play music and movies. You can also connect it to a TV for higher resolution image viewing. Unfortunately it needs to be plugged in the mains, which looks ugly if it’s wall mounted. The remote control and interface are fiddly too, the remote needs to be close to the unit and pointed right at the sensor to work effectively. Similarly the angle of view of the 8-inch LCD is narrow, so you need to be at the right viewing angle to see it.
