Aura Carver Smart Digital Picture Frame Review


Reviewed by Ilze Sinfield

I’m going to start off this review by clearly stating that 1) I am a complete technophobe where it comes to anything new. In fact, so much so, that my 15 year old son and 12 year old daughter has taken over all the tech duties in our house. And 2) that I am annoyingly old school, regularly reminiscing about proper photo albums, and moaning about no one really looking back on their digital photos. So, when the opportunity came up to review an Aura Carver Smart Digital Picture Frame, I was all ears. Truthfully, I resisted something like this because I thought it would be difficult to set up. (Told you I am terrible with any new tech) Besides that, I’ll freely admit that I just didn’t think a digital frame is worth the money. This Aura Carver will cost you £149, which at first glance seems quite pricey.

How wrong I was!

This picture frame is worth every penny, and more. It is beautiful, it is sturdy, and very importantly to me, it was an absolute doddle to set up on my own! Not even a little bit of help from the teenagers, and it took me less than 10 minutes to sort it all out. It was easy and straightforward, much more than I expected. I managed to upload over a 100 photos within that 10 minutes too! Some of what I’ve uploaded was photos I’ve taken from printed photos, and I thought it would be of such bad quality as to be completely unusable on this digital frame. Wrong again. I’m not going to claim it showed up as the same quality as my other photos, but they look so much better than I expected! I am over the moon about it, to be honest and it is a lovely trip down memory lane.

I could tell you all about the specifications of this frame, but that is easily found on the website. What the website can’t tell you, is how it feels to suddenly sit with the best of both worlds – a whole album in one elegant frame, and you don’t even have to page through it yourself (although you can if you want to). I’ve set up for the frame to change pictures every minute, and I’ve had warm, fuzzy feelings all day long. Every time my eyes wander towards it, there’s a different memory, or a familiar face smiling back at me. What a perfect, magical gift, especially this time of year?

Speaking of which – if you are considering this as a gift, they couldn’t have made this easier. You can actually set it all up for a loved one, without even opening the box. All the instructions are printed on the back. Once the recipient have it, it is as easy as connecting it to their wi-fi, and you’re all set. Want even more?! They also have a family sharing option, where you can connect with others and do just that – share and connect.

I’m going to admit – this is one of my favourite ever review items. I absolutely love it. If I could give it 10 stars, I would have. I am so delighted with this, and it is the PERFECT gift for someone special.
