Stopped Working After 8 Months
23 September 2012
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.
Summary: It is a nice frame, but the stand has cheap plastic clips that are easy to break off. If you do not have a child who picks the thing up to show friends the photos, you should not have issues. If you have children around, then you will be having issues.
Summary: I had been looking for a bigger digital picture frame. My old frame was a 5x7 so this new frame was almost twice the size! The frame and picture quality are great! The only thing I would change about this frame is that I would have liked it to randomize the pictures. However, this does not make the frame a deal breaker.
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.
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??
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.
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.
Summary: This is one of those products that looks great from an advertisement and a feature list, but in practice is not worth it. I'll try to be brief and list out the major flaws. 1) Dead or always-on pixels. Mine had two always-on (bright white) pixels. LCD displays go through a quality check at the manufacturer and ones with bad pixels get put into the reject pile. The good ones end up in laptops or netbook computers.
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.
