First of all, once you got your images on the frame itself, and have an album organized, this is a great digital frame. But the road leading there is rocky indeed. It's provided software is anything but good.

This digital frame sports a 640x480 color display to show a slideshow of internally (or images stored on memory cards) stored images. The display is reasonably bright (but not very much, so it's not very usable in direct sunlight). Images can be imported directly from many different memory cards (e.g. compact flash, and others) without the aid of a computer, which is a nice touch. This feature seems to work only if you do not add any files to the card of your own (for examply, MacOS might add a '.DSstore' index file - this can cause the frame to reject the whole card). You can also run slide shows directly from the memory card inserted, which is another nice touch (see later comments on how badly this feature is implemented).

The frame comes with a number of separate differently colored, umm, frames, making it match multiple tastes, and is an extra help when giving it as a present when you do not know where the recipient will set it up.

The frame runs entirely from internal software, which means that you cannot control it through an attached computer as I had expected. This is somewhat disappointing, as the internal software is not flexible. You can, however, use the provided (Windows only) software to organize your images prior to downloading them to the frame. Even though the PC software provided is woefully inadequate for this job (it can't access network volumes, or RSS feeds, it can't rotate images, or edit images beyond a very, very limited crop), it is still infinitely preferable to the built-in image organization software.

This is a slick device that my wife has wanted to buy. We finally took the plunge and bought one.

One minor glitch is that this model does not support the Sony memory stick format. It would have been MUCH easier if I could have used my spare memory card for my Sony camera.

The software on the CD for moving pictures from a PC is pretty poor. I spent hours getting this to work. I put a detailed write-up on what I had to do at my web site, but I can't link to that from here.

Here is a summary of how to get photos from your PC to a slideshow on the Photo Frame:

1. Use Windows Explorer to copy the JPG files from your PC to the root directory on the Photo Frame
2. Use the Philips Photo Manager software to create multiple named photo albums on the Photo Frame
3. Use the software on the Photo Frame to move the photos from the default photo album to the desired photo album
4. Use the software on the Photo Frame to set up the Photo Slideshow options

After several hours of frustration, I was finally able to transfer pictures from my PC to the device. Here is how I did it.

First of all, the software that comes on the included CD-ROM is pretty flaky. You do need to install it in order to easily rename your photo albums (step 2 above). The software also allows you to copy files from the PC to photo albums on the Photo Frame device. After disconnecting the USB cable, the Photo Frame rarely was able to recognize the photos.

You need to go to the Philips web site, and download the newer version of the user manual. The newer manual has 70 pages, instead of the 20 page version on the CD-ROM.

The manual has a hint about the best way to copy files from the PC to the Photo Frame at the bottom of page 12.

Verified Purchase
The Philips 9FF2M4 Photo Frame that is the object of this review (and I presume most of the 162 other reviews posted here) is a simply gorgeous hunk of hardware. Its sleek but hefty chrome and acrylic construction and its packaging almost make you think it was made by Apple. And once (if?) you get pictures loaded into the darn thing, it performs equally well (at least mine has... so far -- but read other reviews for more caveats).

That's the good news. Nearly all the rest is bad, or at least frustrating. Indeed, I finally found the clues I needed to get started overcoming Philips' astonishingly bad software by Googling "Philips Photo Frame" + "FRUSTRATION." Philips' poorly written documentation tells you to load photos from your computer using its Photo Manager software. Wrong. That may load a few photos, sometimes, but if your system is like mine (Windows XP with all the security and other patches installed) the process will either fail immediately or stall after loading a few. And once you discover how to work around that bug, your work has just begun.

If you accept the challenge of making it work despite all the obstacles Philips throws in your path, however, you'll find that part of the consumer experience with the Frame is actually kind of fun -- in between my curses and tantrums were any number of moments of wild exhilaration when I found that yet another work-around had overcome the lastest impasse. But if you can't spend the two days consumed by my effort to get the Frame working in time to be a Christmas gift, and you still want to buy the thing, the following notes that I made during my ordeal may be helpful.
