Summary: Some yesrs ago I have bought two of them, one for me and one for a friend that then had to leave. The first is running but rarely used (only jpg, 512 Mb memory, 800x600 and no sound). The second was still in original package, never opened. Today I have decided to use it, but... it doesn't run!
Summary: What can I say its a really nice frame. The 800x600 looks a lot better then I thought, it has easy to use buttons, SD, and USB interface. The only thing is the white cord is really hard to hide, but I can live with that.
Pros: - Loads pictures off SD really fast. - the 800x600 resolution looks really sharp and bright. - doesn't seem to matter if the picture size doesn't match the screen resolution, it still looks good. - And my mom loved the gift.
Cons: - the power cord is white but the frame is black
Summary: I bought this frame for my mom for Mother's Day. It was a big disappointment. I turned the frame on and off several times and tried two different USB devices. The frame never worked. It's going back to the store tomorrow.
Summary: As advanced amateur photographers we had been looking for a better way to share pictures with family, especially with older relatives who don't have computers or access to the Internet. We looked at digital frames for several years, trying out different demos in stores.
Cons: Stopped working after 5 months. Frame would freeze up on one picture and would require several presses of the power button to power on. Then it stopped coming on at all. This is apparently a fairly common problem, considering reviews on the manufacturer's site. The warranty is apparently covering...
Summary: I got this for my mom for Mother's Day. I loaded up about 600 photos she had on her computer onto a flash drive, put it in and turned it on. Worked perfectly and she loves it. One thing that would have been nice is a remote control, but the quality of the screen makes up for it.
Summary: I like products that do only one thing and do it really well. This is one of those. No wireless, no timer, no clock, no weather, no 9 zillion stupid looking transition effects, no hard-to-navigate soft menus. Plug in a USB stick, turn it on, it displays the pictures on a great SVGA display.
Pros: Great value. Simple to operate, no soft menus. Great display. Non-stupid transition effects. Easy to clean.
Summary: I also own a Viewsonic product which Newegg sells for half the price of this frame. The viewsonic I purchased supports SDHC (although not advertised), has the same specs for screen size, resolution, contrast ratio and brightness.
Pros: Screen resolution, shuffle feature, SDHC support, integrated memory, screen size. I purchased this frame to use at work with an 8GB SDHC card (well within its specs) to fight the dull interior of the office. I also had a newegg gift card with free shipping, so I don't regret this purchase *as much*.
Cons: Beware of what they don't say. First I want to point out that I'm not your average user; I expect hardware to perform up fully up to its full specifications. In this case I expect the frame to be just as responsive using a 2GB card as it is using a 16GB card. Unfortunately this is not the case fo...
