Summary: I thought this digital frame would be a convenient way to to display advertising in my business. Unfortunately, it is almost impossible to load files successfully into the frame. You're better off with a small computer...
Summary: Coby DP1212-1G 12-Inch Digital Photo Frame with Multimedia Playback and 1GB Built-In Memory (Woodgrain) The frame has relatively good resolution. The only problem I had was the slow USB throughput.
Summary: Ordered this frame for someone in a nursing home. The calendar and clock functions are important. Product description that these features were included is wrong. Coby Tech Support confirms DG-1212-1G does not include these.
Summary: This is a great frame for the money. Pros: Price, size, storage space (1G), remote, and has random picture display capability. Cons: Instructions could be clearer, no tech support (no one answers the phone numbers, nor will they answer email), and last but not least it will not display any file modified by PhotoShop. Any of my photos that were edited by Photoshop had to be re-edited (in some way) by another product (I used Google's Picasa).
Summary: I really was impressed with this overall product. Some of the pictures appear too dark and the brightness level control did seem to help some, but it doesn't help on some of the pics as much as I had expected. The pictures that were on there were not dark in the original photograph or on my computer. Other than that, I was very pleased with my purchase and have rec'd a lot of compliments on it.
Pros: Attractive Design, Clear Image, Easy Photo Upload, Easy To Use, Perfect Size for Viewing, Quality Construction
Summary: I needed a large frame to mount on the wall for my elderly Mother, so it needed to be; large; provide quality resolution, and easy to use. I test drove about 3 frames before purchasing the Coby and I sent all three back because they lacked one or more of the things that I desired. The Coby stands out mostly in terms of resolution, but also because of its 12inch size it packs a visual punch.
Summary: I have just bought this photo frame and would NOT recommend to buy it to anybody else. You may ask me why. Here we go: 1. It's working too slowly. I inserted my USB flash card and waited for few minutes before my photos were shown on a display. I repeated operation and again - need to wait few minutes. 2. It's hanging. I have tried to connect frame to my PC via miniUSB - USB cable and copy/delete some pictures. And the frame is hanging almost all the time.
