- Low resolution, but knew that before I ordered it.
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
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 ;-)
It's really nice, so I ordered one more. Will make a nice gift.
