    OtherThoughts:

    I received mine today.

    Plugged it in and inserted my memory cards to try it out.

    I had prepared a lot of photos in the correct aspect ratio and resolution. So all my photos were 480x234 pixels.

    When looking at the photos I realized that the ratio was not correct and my photos were re-sized.

    Measured the display size in mm. and got the following result:

    Width = 154mm

    Height = 86mm

    ( => 6.94 inches)

    This is the active part of the display.

    480x234 pixels gives a ratio of 2.05

    154x86 mm gives a ratio of 1.79

    This means that either the display is

    480x268

    or

    420*234

    After some checking with different files I converted all my files to 480x268 and 420x234 pixels to compare them.

    The 480x268 pixel photos looked somewhat better.

    So according to me my unit is a 480x268pixels and not 480x234 as the manual states.

    The resolution is only stated in one location in the manual and nowhere on the box.

    It could be that it is a misprint.

    Either way, I was mad at first as I had converted all the photos with the aspect ratio of 2.05 and had to redo all the photos with the new aspect ratio of 1.79.

    But now that I think that it has a better resolution I don't mind it. If I'm wrong then it should be a 420x234.

    But I'm sure it's not a 480x234 ;-)

    Bottomline:

    It's really nice, so I ordered one more. Will make a nice gift.
