The holiday season has come to an end. The parties are over, and all that's left are the memories and the photos. And if you're like me, you'll have hundreds of photos of the last month's festivities. Most people hook up their digital camera to the computer, cataloguing everything and putting them into the right folder. Or they print them out at the nearest photo processing shop. A new alternative is to show them off in a continuous slide show in a digital photo frames. The Philips 9FF2M4/00 digital photo frame offers a 9-inch, bright and clear LCD display with a white border around the screen, which in turn is framed by a clear plastic frame. The effect is subtle yet striking, giving the viewer the impression that the photo is suspended in mid-air. The design also supports exchangeable colour borders, allowing you to vary the look of your frame. Users can use the USB slot to connect the frame to a computer and transfer files. There are also two multi-format readers that support most popular memory card types. The device will also display photos directly from memory cards. Once loaded with photos, use the in-built software to play slideshows, edit photos, rearrange albums, browse through thumbnails, and even add effects to photos, such as Black & White, frames, or Sepia. The 9-inch digital photo frame sells for HK$2,380. There is also a smaller 7-inch model. PROS: good resolution, bright display, exchangeable borders, easy to use, wall mountable CONS: only runs for an hour on its battery (needs to be plugged in), doesn't play music or video files.
