PC Advisor reviews the best digital photo frames you can buy in the UK right now.

5. Kodak EasyShare D830

  • RRP: £111.61 inc VAT
  • Rating: Rated 8 out of 10

The Kodak EasyShare D830's main appeal lies in its extreme ease of use - and the fact that it's unselfconsciously simply being a picture frame. The swappable frame option is also a definite plus if you want to switch up your décor.

4. Toshiba Gigaframe Q81

  • RRP: £76 inc. VAT
  • Rating: Rated 6 out of 10

Good looking but with a limited feature set, the Toshiba Gigaframe Q81 is a reasonable budget option.

3. Archos 7

Archos 7
  • Reviewed on: 28 June 10
  • RRP: £355 inc. VAT
  • Rating: Rated 6 out of 10

The Archos 7 performs a set of core tasks reasonably well, and comes at very reasonable price. On the other hand, the touchscreen is hard to operate, and you can't buy new apps at the Android Market. Many Android smartphones in the same price range (with contract) perform much better and can access better apps, although the Archos 7 does bring a larger screen. People who want a low-priced Android tablet now may be happy with the purchase. However, we can't help thinking that you'd be able to get more for your buck from the spate of new Android tablets that will hitting the shelves in the coming months. The Archos 7 comes with a USB cable and a power cable with various adaptors and headphones.

2. Toshiba Journe Air 801

  • Reviewed on: 29 March 10
  • RRP: £136.98 inc VAT
  • Rating: Rated 8 out of 10

Overall, despite occasional picture lag and the less than stellar audio, the Toshiba Journe Air 801 is a nice product, definitely worth the £140 upwards you would have to pay. It is not compatible with Macs, but Mac users can at least use it with a memory stick.

1. Motorola LS1000W

  • Reviewed on: 10 November 10
  • RRP: £87 inc VAT
  • Rating: Rated 8 out of 10

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.
