Texet TF-117 digital frame

In this review, we will talk about another Texet photo frame - TF117. Oddly enough, but all the models from the manufacturer are quite diverse. It's about design and functionality. This time, the manufacturer did not add another unexpected feature, but limited himself to an experiment with touch controls and menu implementation. Let's see what happens.

The frame looks very compact and neat. A simple black rectangle with wide margins and an image in the center will fit both on the desktop and in the home interior. Case material - black glossy plastic on the front panel, side bezel and the usual matte on the rear panel. The glossy surface looks very bright and attractive, the picture seems even brighter, however, fingerprints became the reverse side of the issue. Especially if you take into account the possibility of touch control. Looking ahead, it is worth mentioning that not the entire surface of the photo frame is touch sensitive, but only the strip to the right of the image.

The build quality of the device is at a decent level. The gaps are minimal and uniform, everything looks very neat. Unlike previous models, the stand for the photo frame is integrated into the device, it is not required to install it separately. With the help of a swivel mechanism, the stand easily goes into a vertical position or folds inward. This design allows you to place the frame on any surface, on the wall, for example. However, fastenings for such an arrangement are not provided.

Let's take a look at the layout of the TF-117's controls. There are no controls visible at first glance on the front panel, only a touch-activated touch strip and an infrared sensor in the lower right corner. On the top panel is the power button. On the left side panel there are connectors for synchronizing the frame with a computer and power, USB-Host, an SD-card slot and for connecting headphones. There are speaker holes on the back panel. The device has no other functional elements.

Display, menu

The compact dimensions of the frame could not but affect the size of the display. Diagonal TF-117 corresponds to seven inches against the usual eight. However, the reduction in size did not affect the quality of the picture - the image is sharp and bright, the screen resolution corresponds to 800x480 pixels. The picture is well detailed, the color rendition is not satisfactory. The default display format is 16:9. The only factor that can make it difficult to see is bright light reflecting off a glossy surface and creating glare.

The graphic design of the menu has changed. Icons have become voluminous and dynamic. They are drawn in detail and made in one pleasant color scheme. The black background emphasizes the graphics and goes well with the laconic design of the frame. The menu is circular, the transition between items is carried out by pressing the corresponding key on the remote control or touch panel.

The control system is implemented in two ways - using a touch panel and a remote control. The touch panel is represented by six sensitive points that correspond to the contextual inscription on the display. Each menu item provides a different set of options in front of the sensors. Management is not intuitive. So, in the "settings" menu item there is no separate exit key to the main menu, and to exit you have to scroll through a rather voluminous list of functions. Often there is an activation of a neighboring menu item, the sensor seems overly sensitive. A completely different thing is remote control. Here all the main functions are placed on separate keys and the control system leaves no questions.

The TF-117 menu has been noticeably redesigned compared to previous models. So, photo viewing and slide show mode have become separate menu items. This simplifies the operation of the frame. In order to leave a certain photo static, you do not need to look for the corresponding item in the menu, just select a photo in the photo view mode. The transparency and simplicity of the still image display mode for a digital photo frame is a very important feature. This is the quietest, non-distracting mode. The frame does not irritate with "flickering" of pictures, and if the picture is tired, you can replace it with one keystroke. In the slideshow mode, there are fewer settings, and the choice of the picture refresh interval has been moved to a separate key. The item for setting additional parameters in each individual menu item has disappeared. And the "Setup" key leads to a single frame settings item, where you can configure the language, calendar format, display settings and alarm clock.

Despite the lack of a context menu, the "video playback" and "calendar" items remained almost unchanged. "Audio playback" from the menu disappeared, but the corresponding key on the remote control remained. It calls up the song list in calendar mode. It is difficult to call this solution intuitive.

A new item "aquarium" has appeared in the menu. The content is fully consistent with the name - not very diverse fish cross the screen in different directions. If the frame is in standby mode for more than three minutes, aquarium mode will be activated automatically. The movement of the fish is accompanied by a loud sound of bubbling water, while the volume cannot be adjusted. The sound can only be turned off.

The storage medium can be selected from the menu in the corresponding item. After the selection is made, the content in all modes of operation will be read from the selected source.

The graphical implementation of the menu is the strength of the TF-117. The points are beautifully drawn, the movement between them is carried out in one motion. However, the logic of menu sub-items and options is not intuitive. There is no harmonious, single system for all sub-items.

Memory

The TF-117 has a built-in memory of one gigabyte. The reduction in size resulted in a reduction in the number of connection interfaces - support for SD / MMC / MS memory cards is implemented, plus a USB host that makes it possible to connect a removable Flash drive.

Conclusions

TF-117 is one of the most beautiful digital frames from the manufacturer. Compact size, laconic design, voluminous colorful menu and bright picture in good resolution captivate. A notable drawback is the confusing logic of the menu organization, but for most users this should not be a problem. The settings for the operation of such devices are made once for a long time, after which the photo frame turns into the quality of an interior item. And in this role, the TF-117 feels very confident.
