Over the past couple of years, some of the most important names on the IT market have decided to try their luck on the digital photo frames market as well(with many more most likely to follow). So, it's actually no wonder that Asus, one of the most innovative companies around, has decided to give it a try to this range of products as well and launched back in the first half of 2008 the UF735, a digital picture frame with some average features and a price tag to match.
The visual impact of the UF735 is quite a serious one, and that's because the device features a very attractive metal frame with lighting effects, accompanied by symmetrical and intuitive control buttons for functional setting. Furthermore, the digital picture frame offers a high level of versatility as far as the mounting options are concerned, since it can be installed in either vertical or horizontal positions and can even be wall-mounted.
The UF735 has been equipped with a 7-inch TFT LCD display, which offers users an 800x480 pixels resolution. Beside displaying the respective photos in their original aspect, the digital frame can also apply to them (in real time) a couple of special effects, namely Standard, Vivid, Nostalgic, Black-and-White and Spotlight Modes.
As far as the connectivity options are concerned, the digital frame from Asus is pretty standard. Thus, we've got the rather usual memory card reader (compatible with CF/ SD/ MMC/ MS/ xD cards), as well as an USB connector, which can be used either for transferring photos from USB flash drives or connecting the device to a computer.
And since we've mentioned the USB connectivity issue, we'll also have to underline yet another major feature provided by the UF735: the capability of acting as a secondary display for one's PC. Thus, the device can actually double as a secondary display for one's PC, offering no less than 3 display modes: Duplicate Mode – to duplicate the screen from the main display, Selected Mode – to select what users want to show particularly or Extended Mode – to extend what users want to show and display it in sub-display separately.
