Good Image Quality - So-so Build Quality

Francis Colligan III "Frank", Amazon
8 September 2010
  • Summary: I have four of these hanging in my pet hotel business, rotating hundreds of pictures of my guests. They work fairly well. Unlike what one reviewer stated, the frame automatically detects if a memory card is installed and automatically plays the slideshow from the memory card instead of the insternal memory. The trick is that your pictures must be stored in a folder on the card and not in the root folder. Build quality is so-so.

Poor Quality in the stand

D. Smith "dxstx", Amazon
9 June 2010
  • Summary: Digital Spectrum MemoryFRAME ULTRA MF-1201 12.1-Inch Digital Picture Frame We have enjoyed almost everything about this particular item. Picture quality is excellent, and very easy to download to. The only problem we have had is the stand is a special fitting where it goes into the frame. Ours became bent and will not fit anymore. We cannot find anyplace to order just the stand, so I guess we are faced with another purchase of $150 just so we can stand this item up??

Good bang for your buck

Huy N., Amazon
6 June 2010
  • Summary: I have had this since July 09. Awesome picture frame. Pictures are nice and clear. Why buy a smaller frame when you can get this one for the same price. Only bad thing about is that you cannot randomize your pictures. So whatever you load on there is played in alphabetical order. Update: April 2013 This picture frame is still going strong without any problems. It is on from 7am-10pm. No color fade or anything.

Broken Pixels - twice

Blair A. Folsom "DrBAF", Amazon
5 June 2010
  • Summary: The specs for this unit look great. I purchased the first one from Amazon. It has one persistent blue pixel in the middle of the screen. Very disconcerting. I sent it back to Amazon via their excellent return policy. Since time was short, I purchased the second one from Costco. To my dismay, it also had a bad pixel but this time a different color in a different location. I took it back to Costco and picked up another smaller model from a different manufacturer.

Good value

3 June 2010
  • Summary: I have had a Kodak and another not heard of brand. This is my third frame. No complaints, value for money. Not as classy as the kodak though.

Good for what I want

James E. Pearce, Amazon
2 June 2010
  • Summary: As I say below, I'll add comments as I work with the unit. The unit works fine for our application (rotating display for historical society display case. Unfortunately, it was a little too nice and was stolen in the first two weeks of use. The thief was an idiot, not noticing that the AC power supply, the remote control unit and the instructions were not in the display case. May they suffer. We liked the unit so much we ordered a replacement.

Great present (pre-loaded) for the older crowd

Jane Kaufman, Amazon
31 May 2010
  • Summary: Bought this for my parents' 50th wedding anniversary. Pre-loaded family pictures and about 10 of their favorite songs. I barely used any of the internal memory--I loaded close to 200 pictures--and the slideshow played seamlessly. I did a lot of research and found this product to be the best bang for the buck with screen size, memory capacity, and featured functionality (mp3 and video capable). I'd recommend this to anyone.

Nice frame some quirks

J. Clark, Amazon
29 May 2010
  • Summary: The frame is nice quality and has good picture quality. It is very easy to transfer pictures between the computer and frame but is a pain to transfer photos in other manners such as USB or memory card. The directions are not very user friendly so it was also a little difficult to understand how to work the frame.

Bummer

Terry Crandall, Amazon
26 May 2010
  • Summary: I set out to buy a digital photo frame that would display an 8"x10" picture, which ends up being a nominal 12.1 inch size. This is apparently a size no "recognizable" electronics company has chosen to bother with. In the end, I chose this model by Digital Spectrum after a lot of research among the various obscure manufacturers offering a comparable sized unit. It seemed to have the fewest negative reviews. I was generally happy with the quality of the displayed pictures.

Stopped Working After 8 Months

Christina, Amazon
30 April 2010
  • Summary: Looked great and was very happy until it stopped working after 8 months. Manufacturer cannot be reached and will not return email or calls. Amazon cannot refund or exchange. Thought I was saving money, now spending more for a different one.
