Summary: I have now witnessed our third Aluratek digital frame crap out with the exact same issue. Without warning, all the images become covered in a red hue and some pixalated. Each time, I have written the company and had to push hard to get it replaced.
Will not start a video automatically, crapped out in 6 months
21 May 2012
Summary: We purchased this unit because it has a timer to start and stop automatically, and it plays video clips. What wasn't mentioned is the fact that it will start up and show still pictures automatically, but not videos--you have to manually start the video with the remote.
Summary: I put in a memory card & turned it on - VERY NICE quality image. I went to put it on "Random" - there is NO random function as I was led to believe. The "random" that they advertise is the "swipes", not to view the photos in random order.
Summary: I have bought about 10 or 12 digital frames of various sizes and makes over the last year, mostly for family. I get them, fill them with family pictures and send them off. That way I get to evaluate how well they work. Now it was time to get a bigger one for myself.
