Motorola LS1000W review

£87 inc VAT

Manufacturer: Motorola

Our Rating: We rate this 4 out of 5

Few digital photo frames are as featured-packed as the 10.4in Motorola LS1000W, which provides Wi-Fi access to internet services such as Flickr and Picasa, as well as an alarm clock and MP3/video playback.

Few digital photo frames are as featured-packed as this 10.4in Motorola LS1000W, which provides Wi-Fi access to internet services such as Flickr and Picasa, as well as an alarm clock and MP3/video playback. Unfortunately, its impressive spec is matched by its impressive bulk, with a wide – and garish – aluminium bezel surrounding the screen.

As you'd expect, the Motorola LS1000W digital photo frame includes one USB port and two flash memory card slots as well as 512MB of internal storage for displaying your photos.

Setup is complicated by the need to enter details for the internet services mentioned, but the onscreen menus are easy to navigate with lots of different options to tinker with.

Pros: Sensibly priced with lots of features; easy to use interface; remote control; landscape and portrait; lots of slideshow options

Cons: Garish; LCD tech can make photos look artificial; limited storage; slightly complicated setup

Motorola LS1000W Expert Verdict »

10.4in digital photo frame
512MB internal storage
1 x USB port
2 x flash memory card slots
  • Overall: We give this item 8 of 10 overall

Picture quality is good with strong, vibrant colours, but the results are slightly artificial when viewed close up. But if you can live with its looks, this frame is definitely worthy of your cash.

  • Motorola Defy review

    Motorola Defy

    The Motorola Defy is a very well-built Android 2.1 Eclair handset that, like the iPhone, packs in a 3.6in screen – only it’s half a centimetre smaller overall. Updated, 23 March 2011

  • Eclipse Galaxy X58n260 review

    Eclipse Galaxy X58n260

    The Eclipse Galaxy x58n260's striking looks come not from garish gamer-friendly lighting and transparent panels. Its blank, blacker-than-black exterior is echoed inside the case, creating a ‘stealth’ look that’s really rather appealing.
