If you're tempted by the idea of showing off your photos in a neat, eyecatching way, the choice is a no-brainer. The i-Mate Momento is an excellent digital photo frame.
Digital cameras have been around for about 10 years, and in that time we've met only a handful of people who regularly print off their photos. So it seems inevitable that the evolution of our favourite media would upscale itself directly into the 21st century with digital frames, where pictures can be uploaded to the frame by USB directly from the image source or via a memory card.
We've already reviewed two exponents of this new gadget trend: the Philips 9FF2CWO and the AG Neovo V-10. Here we test and rate the Momento
Where other digital photo frames have to hide unsightly wires, wires are a problem that the i-Mate Momento will never have. It looks similar to the Philips 9FF2CWO from the front, but it has a much deeper backing. This becomes understandable when it's switched on.
The i-Mate Momento has slots for the usual memory cards and a USB port so you can upload directly from your PC or camera, but it's also equipped with Wi-Fi. This works well hooked up to your PC with Windows Media Player 11.0, and works astoundingly well with the Momento Live website.
You can send pictures to the i-Mate Momento frame from anywhere in the world by simply uploading them to your own account on the site – your i-Mate Momento will automatically update itself.
You can navigate easily around the i-Mate Momento's interface with a small remote control. Only once did we use the instructions to aid us in uploading pictures.
