Superior Frame

KARLYNE T., Newegg
10 September 2008
  • Summary: I will recommend this frame to all my relatives and friends. Five Star!!!
  • Pros: This is the second frame I bought and I gave it as birthday gift for my grandma, she loves this very much. Easy to download the pictures and music, the resolution is excellent, it shows the pictures clear on the screen.
  • Cons: Excellent design of wood frame.

Don't buy this one

Timmy U., Newegg
17 June 2008
  • Summary: What a shame, this thing looked so good but it turned out like so much junk. I took it apart and sure enough the tube was gone, all black on the ends. It would be great if you could replace it but it's a huge loop that goes around the whole screen - not easy to ship something like this.
  • Pros: The screen is big and the price was right. When it worked it was OK for displaying images using a memory card.
  • Cons: Where to start. The USB function never worked. The frame was scratched. The "full screen" function worked like junk. The cathode fluorescent bulb died. Yep, the backlight flickered and died.

Shouldn't have bought this

Brian F., Newegg
20 May 2008
  • Summary: The on-board 1 GB not being able to use does suck, but SD cards are very cheap these days. However, with the video not supporting basically anything but certain (not all) .avi formats, this is a product that you definitely want to avoid.
  • Pros: The Screen looks fairly descent and from the front side, the wood frame does make it look nice.
  • Cons: There are no SOURCE select buttons on the unit, if you loose the remote your stuck with only looking at pictures. I could not get the on-board 1GB memory to work, all it says when you turn on the machine is INSERT CARD. The USB cable it came with didn't work properly, I ended up using my PS3 cont...

Don't Buy! Why does NewEgg even carry this?

Anonymous, Newegg
26 October 2007
  • Summary: I'm surprised that NewEgg carries something with such low quality. I usually shop here because their gear is at least better than the bargain basement stuff you can find here and there on the web. This is a sore exception to that rule.
  • Pros: Large Screen....but the resolution is poor!
  • Cons: Crashes all the time. Can't actually read all the Jpeg formats. Doesn't have the resolution it claims. Gives USB and "not enough space" errors constantly. This thing is awful.

Revising my review: don't buy this...

Ian K., Newegg
23 October 2007
  • Summary: The attraction of this device was the large memory and the large screen size. The screen is poor and the image quality is weak. Compared to a smaller Philips digital frame this one is quite inferior. Great feature set, if the features actually worked, but most of them do not.
  • Pros: It has a lot of memory.
  • Cons: Slow USB 16bit color (aka "true color") dithering obvious. Poor contrast ratio: blacks are gray. Like an old LCD from five years ago. Cannot play MJPEG from modern Canon digicam. Cannot play MPEG2. Cannot play WMV, but the manual claims it can. Screen is 1024x768, but the aspect is 16:9. All cont...

Lots of memory, video feature broken.

Ian K., Newegg
22 October 2007
  • Summary: I got this for pics, the 1GB memory and the large screen. In those areas it works well. All other features are hit and miss.
  • Pros: 1GB onboard flash MOving files as easy a drag and drop. Plays music, video and pics. Large screen IR remote
  • Cons: Manual says WMV suported: it's not Manual says AVI: which codecs? 640x480 MJPEG from Canon Elph fails to play. Lower res 320x240 MJPG from older camera plays. Manual says MPEG supported. MPEG2 at 640x480 gives error "usuported codec." USB2 speed is laugably slow. Maybe it's USB1?
