Philips says that the 7FF1AW is plug & play compatible with Windows 2000/XP or later and also Linux and Mac OS X or later.

We had no problems under XP and found the 7FF1AW easy to use. It's been well thought out and also offers many useful features. Crucially, it delivers where it really counts - picture quality - and looks to be one of the top performers in its size category.

It's been a real pleasure over the last few weeks, randomly glancing up from my PC and seeing photos I have barely looked at since I took them.

I have almost 7,000 pictures on hard disk and thousands more in albums that I could scan. With the Philips photo frame, some of these have finally seen the light of day. Many others will follow once I buy a photo frame and that's something that I definitely will be doing.

But will the Philips 7FF1AW be on my short-list? Yes, absolutely.

HEXUS Awards

The Philips 7FF1AW delivers great picture quality and is easy to use. Although it's not cheap, it's available at a fair price for the features it offers.

It fully merits a HEXUS Recommended award and that may be upgraded further after we've looked at other comparable products.

Day Trips to Europe

About John Hill

John Hill created the UK's first web site dedicated to day trips to Europe, perversely-named

This, in one of his more modest moods, he described as "Utterly brilliant and completely without equal".

John is a technology journalist and comedy writer and has been for over 20 years. He's earned a decent living as a journo but sadly hasn't yet made it big on the comedy scene (nor, in some people's opinions, is he ever likely to!).

Got my girlfriend one of these a whileback (I believe John Lewis + coupon worked out to be the cheapest at the time).

On her HP laptop (XP Pro), no matter if I use the software on the CD or the latest version on the web, it just doesn't pick the device up. The software isn't great, but afaik it rescales photos to fit the max res of the screen which is ideal for fitting as many as possible on there.

Instead, I have to use it as removable storage. It works fine, but for the life of me couldn't get the Philips software to work :(
