replacement digital photo frame
Our first one lasted 10_ years before the screen gave up.. It was replaced with one made by Bush... it lasted just three years.. Opened it up and the switch mode part of the psu on the circuit board had fried big time... All surface mount components and for me nowadays a non starter to even try to repair
gone for a generic chink 12" screen thing that does not only jpegs but various AV formats too... and is supplied with a remote
About 10 times better spec than the Bush at half the price

Bush, Grundig and Alba (are they still around?) were all part of the same group knocking out all sorts of cheap radios and suchlike, and to be avoided

Hacktuallllllyyyy..
When I started as a television engineer Bush was a stand alone company.... Second only to Ferguson ( which became Thorn Ferguson )
It was not until Bush went bust and the name bought by a far east firm that the name became synonymous with crap :)

One of the best stereo’s I ever owned was an Alba…or was it an Aiwa? Whatever, it began with “A” in the 70’s Grundig were a top brand.
