My DBPower 7' digital picture frame Model No. P07P3 came from Amazon as a regular order, meaning the device in this review should be representative of any other purchase. No special review sample was used.


Manufacturer's Specifications:

1. Photos: JPEG, JPG, BMP (Ideal resolution for photos is 1024*600 pixels).

2. Audio: MP3, MPEG, AAC, WMA, OGG, APE, WAV.

3. Video: AVI, MOV, MP4, 3GP, MPG, VOB, MKV (All 720p and partial 1080p video files).

4. Built-in calendar and clock – Settings are not lost if the device is unplugged.

5. Supports earphone/headphone playback.

6. This digital photo frame can adjust your photos' orientation automatically.

7. This device doesn't offer any internal storage. Use a USB flash drive or an SD up to 32GB.

8. Frame size is 7.09' x 4.92'. I measured the screen to be 6.09' x 3.44'

9. Optional transition effects between images.

10. Adjustable delay between changing photos (5 seconds to 25 minutes).




Here is the video about Digital Picture Frame features:




The frame arrived well packaged in a sturdy cardboard box. It was nice to see what looks like mostly recyclable packaging instead of large plastic foam blocks.




In the box:

  • Frame
  • Removable stand
  • Operating manual
  • Warranty and free gift information
  • US 120VAC power adapter
  • Mini USB to USB A cable


The documentation is extremely good. The instruction book is 18 pages of photos, drawings, and English text. Every button, connection port, and on-screen menu is fully defined.


Setup is simple. First install the stand, which can be removed later for storage or if you choose to wall mount the frame.



Next, put in a memory card or USB stick. Finally, plug in the power adapter and you are greeted with the home menu. Press the Play Photos button on the remote and your slide show starts along with any music found. That's it. But it can be even easier. Enable the Auto Play option and the frame will start with your choice of photo, video, or audio as soon as power is applied. Truly plug and play.


The easiest way to control the frame is via the remote.




The back of the frame has a simplified set of controls. The left and right arrows have their functions reversed so they work as expected when the screen is facing the user. Along the left side of the image you can see the various well labeled connection ports. Note the two USB labels. One is a full-size USB port and the other is a mini USB port. The full-size port is for a memory stick of images to display. Use the included mini USB cable to connect to a PC and modify the files on the frame's connected storage. This means that you never need to take the SD card out of the frame to update images.



My previous experience with digital frames was years ago when they first hit the market. At that time the frames were slow to load and did not offer good resolution. DBPower's frame is not like those. The display is very clear and bright. The photos I loaded from my cell phone look the same on the DBPower frame as they do on my phone. The 180-degree viewing angle specification is accurate. If you can see the screen from your viewing angle the colors are correct. Using this frame is no different than showing someone your phone, or having a paper photo printed to put in a frame. This is an example of the same image on my laptop and on the frame.


The frame offers a calendar mode to make it more useful while it shows photos. The arrow buttons on the remote change the displayed year while the volume up and down buttons change the displayed month.



Video on a digital photo frame is new for me. I transferred some video from my phone and it looked as good on the frame as on the phone's screen. Audio stayed in sync with the video and the playback was smooth. If you are comfortable watching a movie on a phone or small tablet you will find watching it on this frame to be a similar experience.


Audio quality is acceptable. The sound quality is fine for spoken word but the system is designed for its small speaker and does not produce bass well even with headphones. This is a reasonable compromise to prevent distortion on the frame's small internal speaker. With headphones it can play louder than I would comfortably listen. This frame is not intended to replace your music player for high fidelity listening. Watching a video on the frame or listening to some soft background music works fine. I can envision the frame loaded with family photos and an MP3 file of an audio greeting sent to a far away relative who would be thrilled to not only see photos but hear the voices as well. OGG playback is a nice addition for higher quality audio. FLAC files are not compatible, and do not display in the menu options so they do not cause problems during playback.


Navigation to find files is simple. I placed my files into subdirectories by type on the memory card and the frame had no problem finding them when needed.



Selecting a directory via the remote shows all the available files. Note the text at the upper right refers to the directory currently being viewed, not the entire contents of memory in the frame.



Settings and frame configuration choices are easy to access as well. Here you can set the time and date, adjust screen settings, etc. Display Mode is an important setting. In Standard Size, the photos appear as they were taken. Tall, narrow photos will appear that way with black space on either side. Changing this setting to Full Screen zooms in the photo so there is no black space, but as the aspect ratio is preserved some parts of the photo may be off the displayable area of the screen. I prefer the Standard Size option. The frame can be configured to turn itself on and off at a set time. This allows the frame to turn itself off each night at bedtime, but be on when you wake up the next morning.


Overall the DBPower digital frame is a big step up from the older frames I've seen in the past. Others who saw it were impressed by the quality of the display. This is certainly a device I would display in my home or office, or fill with photos to sent to far away family.
