Great Picture, Good Value, Poor Plastic, Program Quirks

Summary: Easy to get up and running, the unit goes into slideshow mode after power on automatically. Picture quality was excellent. Easy to put pictures on a memory card and have them show up. Recommend re-cropping your pictures to 16x9 aspect ratio so you get a full picture. Unit can accomodate std. 4x6 format as well, but will not fill the screen. Small Quirks are: - When in slideshow mode, you can't hit the pause button to ZOOM in.
Excerpt: I am a fan of optical electronic products and have a huge range of them right from digital cameras to camcorders and digital photo frames. These gadgets keep me busy and bubbling with activity and it is a sure way to preserve memories through these optical instruments.
Never, ever buy COBY products. Rotten customer service

Summary: I would never, ever buy another Coby product. I bought one of these digital picture frames and it didn't work so I sent it back to Coby. After 5 weeks they still had not sent it back. I called and called and called and kept getting the run-around that it was in "product relocation" which is their way of saying that they have lost the package and can't find it. That is why it is being "relocated" but they don't know where it is being relocated to.
Summary: Nice size, but that's about the only positive thing I can say about this item. The slide show was v-e-r-y slow and when I changed the timing to 5 seconds it made no difference; the slides still took 12-20 seconds to change. It occurred to me that the photos were pretty high res and maybe that was the reason for the slow rate, but this should be stated in the manual.
Summary: In September I purchased three of these items for Christmas gifts. The screen turned orange in March and Coby was called for service. Since the item was purchased in September their 90 day warranty had expired and the picture frames could not be repaired or replaced. Ultimately, after less than three months of usage the picture frame was thrown in the garbage! I will not purchase this brand ever again!
Summary: THIS IS MY SECOND PICTURE FRAME, I LOVE THE FIRST ONE SO MUCH THAT DECIDE TO GET ANOTHER ONE FOR MY OFFICE, THE PICTURES LOOKS GREAT AND THE BACK GROUND MUSIC AS MP3 PLAYER IS JUST FANTASTIC, LOT OF PEOPLE ARE AFRAID OF THE SIMPLE BRAND "COBY" BUT LET TELL YOU, I OWN A KODAK AND OTHER HIGH NAME BRAND PICTURE FRAMES AND DONATED THEM TO SALVATION ARMY.
Summary: I ordered this as a Christmas gift and sad to say that they had to give it back to me to exchange since the first unit would not even power up. After I got he second one, I decided to test it first before giving to the recipients. First thing I noticed was that SDHC cards do not work with this frame. I had to go out and purchase a regular SD card and I was then able to load in pictures. The pictures looked clear and vibrant in color.
