Summary: the digital frame was given to us as a gift, which is a great idea! installation was a breeze, its pretty simple despite the engrish manual. however, within 6 months of being on for a few days straight, it burned out!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!!
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.
