Digital Keychain Review and Giveaway!

I was able to do a review and giveaway for a digital keychain from In the mail I received what you see pictured at the left. Of course, without a good camera, I could not get an accurate picture of MY keychain, but it really looks exactly like the picture from their digital keychain page.

First, I'd like to say that the picture quality is decent and quite good for a keychain. The product has a battery that is recharged when you connect it to the computer with the cable provided. Mine also had an engraving on the back in which I simply put, "Mel's Pictures" on it. Sweet and to the point. :)

Main Features:

The instructions that came with the keychain were very tiny. I mean my eyes are good and I don't need glasses, but it was too tiny for me to really look and even try to read. However, it wasn't necessary and things are very easy to understand. Basically after I connected it to my Mac (yes, it's Mac compatible!) I just clicked on the CD symbol and got the program that you need to input and crop your pictures to the device. Just click on the illustration to get a better view. Oh, and those that are PC... don't worry, of course it is compatible with your comp.

The only "problem" I had really wasn't a problem. I had to install my rosetta program. For those that don't know, it is a program that allows intel Macs to run PPC programs (aka before intel Mac comp). I don't like rosetta because it makes my comp run slow after I've shut the program down. The comp just needs a bit of time to realize you are no longer running PPC programs. A reboot will usually clear this up quickly. Those on PC most likely won't have to worry about this at all.

My other criticism is that it only holds 5 pictures with good quality pictures. Not bad for the size and cost of the device. I could probably get more pictures but I don't see you getting 72 as stated. Well, let me say it another way. I don't think you could get 72 GOOD pictures within the device. If you want to try it, you should use another programs and reduce the number of pixels with the picture. Remember with this reduction you lose quality. With me, I prefer to get a few pictures of good quality than a ton of "what is that?" quality. I'll have to play with it some more to see if I can up the number of pictures and still be satisfactory for me.

All in all, if you like to have a few fun pictures with you at all times, then a digital keychain is one cheap and easy way to go!

So, would you like to win your own digital keychain? Here is your chance. Just fill out the form below to enter. Simple, sweet. :) The giveaway will end on Aug. 23rd. The giveaway is open to those in the US and Canada only.
