I know a video review isn't ideal since the resolution gets changed when uploading to this website, and just taking a picture of something that is lighted like this leaves something to be desired, but I wanted to give everyone some idea of the features. The photos actually look better in person for some reason. I think it's like taking a photo of a TV screen, it never looks as good. For example, the menus aren't really readable on the video but they're easy to read in person.
I hope this helps you in making a decision on this frame.
Here are my observations:
* Acceptable picture quality - FOR THE PRICE
* The wood grain frame is attractive
* Included Remote Control
* Accepts a wide variety of memory cards (SD, MMC, MS, xD, and CF card slots, as well as USB for flash memory drives)
* Plays pictures in Slide Show, Audio Files, and Videos
* Slide show starts automatically if no buttons are pressed when the device is powered on
* Sound is decent through built in speakers
* Menu is a little difficult to navigate
* Not really practical to hang on a wall due to the power cord
* No internal memory (but memory cards are cheap, see SanDisk 1 GB Secure Digital SD Card (SDSDB-1024, Bulk Package) for example)
So, this INEXPENSIVE frame is not perfect and has somewhat marginal picture quality, but I truly think that this one of the rare cases where you get more than you pay for. There are better frames available, but you will certainly pay more for them as well.
Recommended, but only if you understand that you are buying a value priced device with some limitations.
The most difficult part is remembering which buttons to press to get to the right menu screens you need to change settings! You'll probably need to do some digging around in the manual to understand how to do everything you want. Once you get everything set and forget about it for a couple months, you'll come back to the frame and realize you need to learn how to work it all over again, so keep your manual handy. This frame might drive the nitpickers crazy, but I just let it go in the background and forget about the little blips for the most part while I'm doing other tasks. If you can do the same, it's not a bad frame.
Product listing needs to tell you about the low res 480x234 up front, no way to know that looking at the product offering here.
Don't go lower than 800 x 480 when buying a digital frame.
Coby does sell the 800 x 480 and UP in 7" sizes;
Pulled a memory card with photos from another 7" digital frame I have here (800x480) in the same MSRP price range and plugged it right into this Coby DP702, results are not good and degrade the look of the photos too much for my tastes.
I do not see any reason in this day and age to offer anything this low in resolution, most everyone is used to, and expects better.
Sound isn't so good for music with built in speakers so might be good if used for a child saying something to go with a photo but not really for listening to music. It does have a place to plug in head set which would improve sound I'm sure.
Remote control unit does have many buttons to adjust settings and works well, but a couple of problems ...for example, you can't seem to adjust a photo with it showing on the screen at the same time as the settings menu.
I'll sure come back and say so if I find out how to do it, but do not see a way after reading the manual and playing with all the settings and adjustments. You have to make changes and then load a photo to see how you've done... not the way to do it.
Just to note, "getting started" section of the manual (page 16)tells you about the "supplied" USB cord to hook to your PC for adding photos to your memory card while it's in the frame, but there isn't one in the box or in the parts list on the box. Perhaps there's one with another Coby model.
I really want to say "okay for this low price" but can't... others at this price are fine, this one falls short.
Coby may very well be as good as other makes, but get another Coby model for better results.
This DOES have a clock (analog clock face) with alarm and calendar feature beside it, so that may have some use without using it to display photos or listen to music.
I AM going to try using it to display digital "paintings" I've done, perhaps they will look better than photos with details.
