Transcend 710 Digital Photo Frame

Flash memory maker Transcend is adding itself to a growing list of players in the ever-expanding digital photo frame market. Its maiden offering is the 710, a 7-inch item with a 480×234 resolution, quite modest in the face of 15-inchers from the other big players.

But the 710 is positioned in a sweet spot, within a price range and frame size most frequently bought by consumers.

With its feature set, the 710 may be able to compete well. It features a multi-card reader that instantly shows all pictures on SDHC/SD, MMC, MS, and CF cards as soon as you plug them in. Using a mobile phone? No problem. The reads those too, using an adapter. There’s also a USB host connector for those ubiquitous USB Flash drives.

Transcend says the 710 can showcase all of your favorite photos with background music and is highly configurable. Plus it has a rather generous 1GB of internal memory.

So, it looks good on paper. Now let’s see this baby hands on.
