Summary: Got this as a gift for my Mother-in-law. It was a good price and seemed to have decent reviews. Out of the box I turned it on to load images on it and there was a pixel burned out on the screen. The build quality was very cheap. On the plus side I was able add and remove images easliy and it seemed to display everything ok with exception to the bright pixel mark on the screen.
Summary: I don't know what to say about a product like this. It works, the price was great and it is durable. Perfect for what I had a need for. Did not want to spend too much money but still wanted a decent quailty product.
Summary: Aside from a clearly visible grid on the screen, the products has many limitations. To do a slide show of pictures, you have to have all the pictures in the same folder. Besides, you can not have more than 500 pictures per folder, or the last ones will not be shown. So if you have lots pictures organized in folders (like most of us do), you have to copy them into a same folder, which is very troublesome; and most likely you will have to split them in different folders of...
Coby DP-558 5.6" Digital Photo Frame with MP3 Player
Photo Nut "Alan", Amazon
19 February 2009
Summary: I recently purchased a Coby Dp-558 5.6" Digital Photo frame for my wife. The purchase was made two months early (thnakfully) so that I could put together pictures with specific songs. I'm glad that I did purchase the product early due to the fact that the "USB" port for link to computer was PLUGGED. By plugged I mean unusable, so I contacted the manufacturer who instructed me to remove the plug.
Summary: bought this framework and it was great - for 3 months. Then it just stopped working! I'll never buy anything else from Coby. P.S. I gave it 1 star only because Amazon won't allow a 0 star rating!!!!
Summary: Resolution not bad considering the size. Pretty affordable since it's a coby, will playback video (with great frame rate), built in speaker, lots of memory card options, even a usb jump drive. With that being said, probably the one thing that annoys me is that it doesn't remember any of your slideshow settings, so if you turn it off, and you told it to repeat folder, you have to go back and change it again.
Summary: This picture frame has no internal memory. You must buy some type of memory for it before you load. I tried a flashdrive, but it sticks out the side of the frame and looks bad, so I put a memory card in it that I happened to have. This was a gift and I am glad that I had it sent to me to load since they would have had to go buy a card. Pretty good pictures once you get it running and fun to display.
