The Good Affordable; simple to use; responsive and pretty zippy operation; touch-panel navigation; choice of customizable borders included.

The Bad All plastic; no remote; no CompactFlash card support; no built-in memory.

The Bottom Line The Kodak EasyShare 7-inch Digital Photo Frame P720 is a basic photo frame that's designed to be relatively affordable and easy to use, but as you might expect from an entry-level frame, its image quality is pretty mediocre. It's worth the extra money to step up to an 8-inch model.

Kodak offers several digital photo frames, including models that feature built-in wireless connectivity and even cutting-edge OLED display technology. But its P720, a 7-inch frame, is about as basic as you get and sits at the entry point of the Kodak line with a street price of less than $70.

Some digital photo frames have real wood or metal finishes, but this is strictly a plastic affair. With its simple, slim, black border, the frame looks elegant enough from afar and comes with two stick-on decorative mattes (one is red, the other silver) that let you customize the frame's look. The kickstand doesn't swivel, but you do have the option of propping the frame up in a horizontal or vertical orientation. On the back of the frame there are keyhole slots for mounting the frame to a wall with screws along with a threaded tripod mount if you want to prop it up with a tripod.

In terms of features, the P720 is very basic. For starters, it comes with no memory; you have to provide your own memory card. You simply slip a MemoryStick, SD/SDHC, or xD-Picture Card in the slot at the top of the frame and a slideshow automatically begins. You can also connect a camera or flash memory storage device (a thumbdrive) directly to the frame via the USB connector. Interestingly, there's also a separate slot that's devoted to just SD/SDHC cards (the other memory card slot also accepts SD cards). You can attach multiple memory cards to the frame and copy photos from one memory card to another, or from your camera to a memory card.
