You'll be pleased for awhile.....

Erin C. Crigger, Amazon
2 February 2009
  • Summary: Got this Black Friday 07 and for what was paid I couldn't complain. Descent pics, simple set up, even put a movie on there once just to see the performance. But alas just a little over a year later the frame went black!! Messed with it a little bit and finally threw it in a drawer. I recently discovered it again and tried plugging it in....And low and behold it works....For just a couple minutes at a time that is!!

Dead and smoking!

Pappy, Amazon
23 July 2008
  • Summary: Not the best quality pix. But it worked well for a few months,and it was a great conversation piece when quests came, until it died. I re-started it once with the remote, but got an even poorer quality with lines across the screen. Next time I tried it using the on-frame buttons, it not only did not work, but smoke poured out of two places on the back. It's value as a conversation piece would have sky-rocketed if it had set the house on fire.

dead frame

K. Thomas "SIHomeTours.com", Amazon
1 May 2008
  • Summary: Length:: 0:51 Mins Frame died in less than a year. manual was not helpful, ever. I never figured out the exact resolution to size/crop my picts to fit the frame exactly. (and it wasn't in the manual) You've got to have a thumb drive or compact flash card to load your picts on but i didn't see that as a problem.

Terrible product and terrible supprt

James P. Testerman, Amazon
7 April 2008
  • Summary: I bought this product less than one year ago. It worked for a few months and then stopped. After numerous emails and phone calls, they finally replaced it and it worked for a few more months. This time when I went to the manufacturer's website it was down and there is no one to contact about a replacement.

Astar Digital Picture Frame

Amazon Customer, Amazon
1 January 2008
  • Summary: The directions are garbled and it isn't the easiest to set up. There is no internal memory and you have to load up the memory cards (not included) with some other device, you can't hook up it's USB connection and load it up. The USB is actually a host port which is odd. Low resolution and difficult operation make me wish I'd bought something else.

picture quality not good

Ravindra Gangadhara, Amazon
4 December 2007
  • Summary: I bought this frame for myself. When I first opened it I felt very happy with the picture quality, but that was short lived. My friend got a Dynex 7 inch from Best buy on the same day and belive me when he played it I was stunned by its quality. Dynex is owesome but it doens't play any movies/mp3. But I think the digital frame is not required to play all those, it is meant for viewing pictures. I would rate this 2 star as far as picture quality is concerned.

astar 7" photo frame

TD, Amazon
1 December 2007
  • Summary: Pros: Nice features, movie playback, mp3, slideshow and photos. For the price it seems a great value. This is my first photo frame and I expected TV-like picture quality. Cons: I'd have to rate the picture quality only average, w/limited control of brightness, contract and color. No internal memory or battery.

astar 7" digital photo frame

photo fanatic, Amazon
29 November 2007
  • Summary: I gave this 4 stars because it doesn't have an internal memory and has to be plugged in. I'm being picky (the people I bought for won't care about this feature). This frame is great. I bought 3 of them for gifts. I took one out to see make sure it works and I can help the people I bought them for. It's very easy. I took it out, plugged it in, put in a memory card (had pics on the card already) and hit slide show. That's it! I think the picture is great.
