Summary: I have not personally used the frame as it was purchased as a gift for my daughter, but she loves it. She is still adding to the hundreds of pictures she currently has stored, but one of her favorite features is the timer. This is a huge frame for a photo fanatic, the colors are amazing and the frame was a great price. Best of all, she gets to see the reminders of her travels on a daily basis. A definite win as a gift for the photo lover!
Summary: I purchased this digital frame on January 28th, 2012. I had difficulties with the power source about February, 2013. I emailed the company and they sent me out a new power source. It worked until August, 2013 when it stopped working altogether. I again wrote to the company and explained that the frame was no longer working. After trying two IT specialists to see if they could fix it, I sent it back to the company, January, 2014.
Excerpt: I take a lot of pictures and we purchased this frame after comparing a lot of the larger frames and reading reviews. It is a very nice frame, great picture quality (I have not used it for files with sound yet), it can be hung or put on a table. We have it displayed on a table and I really like it, except there is no way to randomly sort the photos, which would be the one thing to make it better. We bought that knowing it didn't random sort though.
Pros: Attractive Design, Clear Image, Easy Photo Upload, Easy To Use, Quality Construction
Summary: Wonderful frame! Just opened the box and set it up, and it's better than I expected. The photos that I used to struggle to see on a smaller frame are now spectacular and bright. It IS heavy thought, so be prepared for that. We had to change our option from hanging on the wall (since the particular wall was somewhat flimsy and wouldn't even hold mollies) to sitting it on a floor shelf. Whatever you need to do, it will be worth it.
Summary: The frame looks good and appears to be of good quality. Transferring pictures isn't as simple as it seems. If anything is encrypted, good luck. I tried transferring pictures directly to the frame, an SD card, and a thumb drive and nothing worked. It would recognize the file name but no picture would show up. I contacted Aluratek directly to make sure I wasn't doing something wrong, it was determined the frame was defective...J&R didn't seem to agree.
Summary: I needed a frame that was clear and went in order by number. I was putting together a show for my daughter's wedding. I numbered hundreds of pictures and this frame says it can put pictures in order but instead of going 1 2 3 4 it went 1 10 100 and so on. I'm not even sure if it showed all the pictures because they were all out of order. I had to return. Otherwise if you don't care about the order this is a beautiful very large frame.
Summary: I ordered this photo frame to run video at a trade show because it is half the cost of a TV screen. I looked at the specifications before ordering and it says that you can run video on it. I sent this to a show, but the sales person had a hard time getting the video to work on it. I looked up in the manual how to run video and there is about a 10 step process for converting your video so it will work on this photo frame, plus you have to install FREE software to do the...
