Pros

  • Excellent image quality, nicely designed

Cons

  • Touchpad can be slow to respond, no audio or video support

Bottom Line

The D830's main appeal lies in its extreme ease of use--and the fact that it's unselfconsciously simply being a picture frame. The swappable frame option is also a definite plus if you want to switch up your décor.

Would you buy this?

In its warm brown wooden frame, the Kodak EasyShare D830 easily blends in with any other frames arranged on your desk or coffee table. With this model, however, Kodak has decided to allow you to replace the frame in the box with any picture frame you choose: Simply pop out the D830, slip the new frame over it, and slide the toggles to hold it all together.

The D830 has 512MB of internal memory and it accepts SD, SDHC, MMC, Memory Stick, MS Pro/MS Pro Duo, and xD cards, as well as USB. Simply plug in your card (or transfer photos to the frame from your PC) and the show begins. Images on the 800-by-600-pixel screen popped with vibrance and sharpness.

Like the Kodak EasyShare S730 frame, the D830 will show pictures full-screen or create on-the-fly photo collages. It also has clock and calendar functions. Unlike its more modern cousin, however, this frame is strictly traditionalist: no video, no audio. The D830 is just as simple to use, though: You operate its menus through the touch border hidden within its faux mat. In addition, those hidden controls will glow once you get close enough to the frame's sensor--a neat (and helpful) trick. But alas, you can't plug this frame into a wall somewhere, which relegates its good looks to a table or desk.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
