Summary: My siblings and I gave this to our mother for Mother's Day a few years ago and she still loves it! We loaded pics on it for her and she turns it on when she has parties and friends over at her house.
Summary: I purchased three Matsunichi digital frames less than three years ago. All three were dead within 2-3 years of purchase. The screens just went blank and they never worked again. Matsunichi said the warranty is out and they don't repair them. If you want a frame that only works for 2-3 years....buy these! Im done with Matsunichi. Good Luck.
Summary: Just boggles my mind. Pro: Great quality. Yes, it really is. Good contrast. Good colors. It really stands out in comparison to my other frames. Cons: NO RANDOM... I don't get it.. Every single frame I've had and given to my family members has random playback. This one does NOT. I have the newest firmware (dated April'09). Drives me NUTS. I don't get it - how could they have skipped such an important feature on a picture frame?
Summary: I got this for my wife for out first Anniversary. I put a bunch of our wedding pictures on a SD card and stuck it in and wrapped it back up. She opened it and had this strange look on her face like "What the heck is this?" look. I told her to try it out and she plugged it in and about fell over when she saw what the pictures were scrolling across the screen.
Summary: This frame has a good quality screen and is easy to use. Don't resize pics like others are saying. I tried it side by side and it's no contest unless you like loosing the sharp high res pics that this frame can display. I put a bit over 200 pics each in two folders on a 1GB card and the frame had no problem switching to the second folder once it had run through the first. I found the overall look pretty dull and boring with either color frame.
Summary: This frame comes with pretty descent features when compared to other brands. Its high resolution and 8 inch screen attracted me.Features like mp3 and wide variety support of memory cards and image formats fascinated. Also, it is remote controlled, is a plus point.Another model of 16:9 aspect ratio is also available. I gifted this product. After exploring other options, I zeroed on this and one by X digital media (that is a little superior but more expensive).
Summary: There were other users that had this same issue about the unit not turning on. Same problem here. What people may not know or appreciate is that Amazon will not let you return the item to them, you have to go thru the second hand dealer Amazon uses or go directly to the manufacturer. Of course, you get to pay more shipping and good luck getting it before Christmas.
Summary: Purchased the Matsunichi Photoblitz 8" Digital Picture Frame in Dec 07 for about $130. The frame is very nice looking compared to a few others out there. The screen is fairly bright. The setup is self explanatory although I didn't even bother setting it up in the beginning. I dragged my pictures onto my memory card, inserted it into the side and voila...the pictures began a slideshow.
Summary: The Matsunichi Photoblitz 8" Digital Photo Picture Frame performed as expected. It is feature laden with good color rendition. It set up quickly out of the box, but then this isn't my first digital picture frame. The 280 image limitation can be overcome by putting several folders with less than 280 images in each on the SD card. The disappointing feature of this device is the very poorly written instruction manual.
