HP DF1200A1 12.1" 800 x 600 Digital Photo Frame


Bought this as a gift for my low-tech-understanding grandmother - perfect! Being able to plug in an sd card with minimal setup makes this perfect for something I'll be maintaining infrequently.

Simple, easy setup and installation of photos! The controls are rather easy to understand and you can use the remote or the controls on the frame (if you lose remotes as easily as I do.) The pictures look nice and are quite vivid

Would be nice to be able to control the speed of the slideshow. Then again, this could just be a feature I didn't find - I only fiddled with it for about ten minutes on initial setup

Just beautiful


It's a pretty basic digital photo frame. Feature wise it's Doesn't bother me though because a 12" at this price is a steal. I don't agree that this frame is bad simply because of it's supposedly low 800x600 resolution. It's just like saying a 60"...

It's truly a great frame. Although it, just like most DPFs, automatically rescales all photos to its native resolution which is 800x600, the picture quality is wonderful. The manufacturer did an amazing job tuning the LCD panel. In terms of color, it...

None I can think of

This may say HP on it, but it's no better than all the other cheap Chinese-made knockoff brands. As a matter of fact, that's what this frame is, it's just rebranded as HP. It's junk, stay away.

Price, size

Lousy picture quality, especially off-angle, barely adjustable leg on back, terrible menus, no random

High Pitched Noise


The high-pitched squeal is a DEAL BREAKER. I'm sending it back and buying a different brand.

Large screen for the price ; LCD bright and clear image

High pitched squeal is unbearable ; Menu navigation is not user-friendly

HP DF1200A1 12.1" 800 x 600 Digital Photo Frame


cheap, large screen

no hole in the back to hang up on the wall. One dead pixel right in the middle of the screen. And it went dead after one night on. I tested the power adapter and it's good. So the unit is dead on me

low quality LCD


Wish I had figured this out sooner :(

nice materials in the frame

This 12" picture frame only has a resolution of 800 x 600, which is REALLY BAD for a picture frame this size. You would need at least 1280 x 960 to get the same quality as 800 x 600 on a 7" image ; You can see why when you calculate the pixel density....

No Random


I have the 10.4" version of this frame and it's the only digital picture that I've counter that does NOT offer a random feature. Which means all your pictures is displayed in the same boring order. I can not believe a company like HP would put its...


Horrible menu, cannot display picture randomly, resolution is low for this size

Nice frame


HP doesn't have this model on their web site listed. Is there any hope for a firmware update? Hello!?

nice size, nice styling, quality feel

menu is horrible, I cannot find how to set the picture display mode to Optimal! resolution 800x600 doesn't look sharp

Pass this one by


Good thing we bought a protection plan on this picture frame because we really needed it. This was a gift at Christmas and since day one it had problems. The memory card slot was not attached correctly and when we put a compact flash into it, it...
