Wiidescreen aspect ratio means photos will be cropped

Summary: Most of our digital photo library is comprised of pictures taken with a 4:3 aspect ratio. This frame is 16:9...so I had to spend HOURS cropping and formatting pictures to display properly on this device. Once that work is done, the frame works great.
Summary: It is very nice digital frame. Has 2 wooden frames included with very good finish quality. But it lasted exactly 1 year - once the warranty was out it died right away))) Like it had a time bomb in it). So, not recommending it if you want a long living unit. But display itself is very good.
Summary: The Coby DP888 has, for me, a fatal flaw that I feel should have been disclosed in the advertising. It can only recognize and show 2000 pictures from an SD card (and I would guess any other memory card type), even if the card contains many more pictures. Of course, over the course of a lifetime, many of us take far more than 2000 pictures.
Glitchy, buggy, undependable performance on two units

Summary: First one arrived but did not display photos properly. The images were off-center so that the center of the photo was pushed down and to the right by about 2 inches. This pushed the far right of the photo to the far left of the picture frame and the bottom of the photo to the top of the screen. Returned it to Amazon and ordered a replacement. Second one arrived with the same problem, but the images were only off-center by about .75 inches.
Summary: When I purchased this digital frame I was unaware that I could not download pictures from my camera into the frame. It only works when the card from your camera is in the frame. Since I purchased this item as a gift and I took numerous family photos over the holidays, I now have to include the card from my camera and purchase a new card for myself. When I tried to return the item I was put on hold - twenty, thirty minutes at a time.
Summary: Picture very good, remote control works well. Wood frame looks excellent. Only problem is connecting to a computer to transfer files. The USB connection is poor. Often will not transfer pictures. I have three of these frames and several computers and all combinations act the same way. If you use some other method to write to the memory card, everything is fine, just do not count on the Coby frame USB connection. Also, Coby will never answer their on-line support contact.
