Summary: The Sony DPF-D80 is a great digital photo frame if all you want to do is display pictures. The strongest attribute I would have to say is the image quality and the fact that it is 800x600 (4:3) display. The problem with most other digital frames is that they come in 16:9 (widescreen) display, which to me doesn't make sense unless you're using a professional camera (most, if not all, consumer digital cameras shoot in 4:3 format). With the widescreen you either get a stretched out picture or black lines on the side, which is a waste. The 8" screen works well with the resolution so the images look sharp (Sony offers the D100, 10" screen with the same resolution). The other attractive feature, or lack of, is that it doesn't have all the multimedia, wifi, etc... features that to me are not needed. The unit supports a wide variety of memory cards, which is good to make up for its smallish 256mb internal memory.
Overall, if you're looking for a simple/nothing fancy frame to display high quality pictures, this is the perfect frame for you.
Note: before I purchased this unit, I read that there were some compatibility issues when cropping/editing a photo (mostly photoshop) that others have experienced, I'm using a Mac (leopard) and have no issues with cropping/editing with Preview or OmniGraffle.
