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.
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: ... badly flawed, I'm afraid. Nice display and heft. But: Direct USB connection freezes my Macs (PowerBook 12, and iMac 2008). My PC with XP (both sp2 & sp3) sees an "unknown device" and finds no driver. And, slideshow quits after maybe 100 photos, including many skips, although my card had 600+ photos. No quantity limit is specified in the booklet or advertisement. Tried loading the card from PC instead of Mac, but show still quits early.
Summary: This frame exceeded my expectations. I had purchased two prior and returned them for poor quality and too small of picture - and I was apprehensive about purchasing one online - but this one is great. Good picture and the frames are very nice. Price was good too.
Summary: I bought two of these frames for Mother's day, and they were a huge hit. I thought I needed to find 1024x768 Res frame, but couldn't afford two, so I bought these instead. The picture quality is great! I am very impressed with everything about this product. Great remote, easy menu system, start-up time is relatively short, and simple to operate. The interchangeable frames are not cheap-looking like some others- will go next to any wood frame and look great.
