Introduction

Westinghouse intrigued us with their DPF-1021 10-inch digital photo frame and its MosaicView feature which promised a nice random photo "montage" feature that would distribute pictures in a way that was always fresh and interesting. The trouble with this frame is its difficulty to work with. Though it boasts PC connectivity, we were never able to get it to connect (on a variety of current and older machines) and the interface made it extremely difficult to load in images from storage devices. If digital photo frames were still in their infancy we could forgive Westinghouse's clunky interface and lack of "Copy All" functions, however this is 2008, not 2004, and this premium-priced digital photo frame scores "below par" compared to its peers.
