Transcend’s PF730 recently achieved the “Best Product” honour in a comprehensive 7” digital photo frame shootout conducted by the renowned, independent German test institute “Stiftung Warentest.” The PF730 received a very respectable overall rating of “good (1.8),” with “very good” results in the sub-categories of Handling (1.4) and Versatility (1.3), and a “good” mark for its image quality (1.9). The editors pointed out that the Transcend photo frame offered the largest internal memory of all tested products. Furthermore, they highlighted that the PF730 was much cheaper than rival products of the same quality. The complete review was published in 12/2009 issue of Stiftung Warentest magazine.
The 7-inch PF730 digital photo frame has a bright, high-resolution (800×600) photo-friendly 4:3 screen, advanced NaturaTone user–selectable color modes, and an Automatic Orientation Sensor (AOS), which enhances the viewing experience and guarantees photos look their best. With a full 2GB of internal flash memory, users can preload their entire photo collection onto the PF730 for sharing precious moments with friends or family. The PF730 supports most mainstream memory cards including SD, SDHC, MMC, and MS, plus it also features a conveniently-located USB port for plugging-in USB flash drives. Slideshows can be customized with variable image sorting, transition effects, attractive frame borders and fun animation themes that capture the attention of viewers and create a lasting impression. The photo frame itself has a gently contoured shape with a simple, oriental-inspired, elegant embossed pattern that makes it a perfect addition to any office, bedroom or living room.
