Ipevo Kaleido R7 Digital Picture Frame Review

The Ipevo Kaleido R7 is clearly intended for those looking for an ultra-modern digital picture frame with functionality that separates it from the pack.

This is by far the most elegant frame we’ve seen, from the base (glossy black top and polished white sides) to the glass-like front.  No controls are visible, further enhancing the elegant look.

The display rotates and can tilt up to 30°.  The 7” anti-glare display presents vibrant, life-like images.  We only wish the display were bigger.   In portrait mode, the viewing angle is somewhat limited but it’s excellent in landscape mode.

It was fairly simple to configure the frame to get images from a computer on the same wireless network; Ipevo provides a free utility called EyeStage for this purpose. EyeStage also supports streams from Flickr, Picasa, FaceBook albums, and news and weather sites.  You can use Google Image search with specific keywords.  You can also connect the frame directly to a camera via the USB port and a memory slot supports SD/SDHC, MMC, and MS cards.
