Summary: I Purchased this photo frame for my son that is in the Air Force stationed in Arizona, I figured he needed some pictures of family and freinds so I have been loading pictures and video on a memory card and I keep checking how they look on the frame, it is the best and clearest picture I have seen on a digital frame, super easy to load and work with, I love the idea of changing the views as to the calendar page and pictures in it, also the alarm is a great idea.
Summary: The slide show for this Opteka Digital frame freezes after just 1 hour of use. I tried both the internal memory and the external SD memory. No difference. Slide show was still freezing. The only option was to power it off and on to start the slide show again, and it will freeze again within the next 1 hour. I had only around 100 photos loaded. I have seen many reviews of this frame freezing up on slide show.
Summary: I see a number of friends and families have electronic picture frames and I was now ready. I like that it is easy to load pictures to an sd card and update in just a few minutes. Then it is mostly plug and play but the menu selection if confusing on this model and takes a few clicks of the remote control before it gets going. In retrospect I might have preferred a larger screen than the 7 inch.
Summary: I purchased this picture frame for my mother as her Christmas present. She does love it and it sits on her desk at her work. The picture quality is great, but its not very customizable and its not the most user friendly of menus. It would be nice if the frame was interchangeable or if there were more viewing options, but for the price, I suppose I can't complain much :) If all you're doing is throwing a memory card in and letting it do its thing, its a wonderful picture...
Summary: It looks great, the quality of the picture was very good. However, it didn't perform as it should have. The pictures would hang up and would not cycle through. It also had a stutter every now and then where the picture would have a flash. It would occasionally turn a picture sideways. I was happy with the delivery of the product and the return procedure.
Summary: Piece of junk. There are MUCH better units on the market. Stay away from this unit and 47th St. Camera. I wish I had. Have to load each photo individually, then it will not display all that have been loaded. I used all .jpg images, resized them to 800x600. Will not display more than about 125 images. TERRIBLE software and freezes up my computers, both XP and Vista, plus photo frame itself freezes.
Summary: I tried to get this picture frame to work on two PCs running XP. On one machine it would freeze up the mouse requiring a reboot. On the second it took multiple times connecting to a USB port until the drive was recognized. Once I finally loaded picture the frame worked as expected but forget about trying to load other pictures. Frustrating and a waste of time. Don't buy this product.
Summary: The picture is great. I resized all of my pictures using a photoshop script so they wouldn't be too big. It is short on instructions and the interface is difficult to use, but nice looking, but after it's set up, it's a nice frame. This frame is 800x600 resolution and has decent transitions. It does not support SDHD cards (usually over 4GB).
Summary: I'm not technically savvy, and I was thrilled at how easy it was to load photos onto this frame and ship it off as a gift to my Mom. She opened it while on the phone with me, I had her plug it in and turn it on, and the phone went silent..."Mom? Ma, are you there?" She was weeping with joy as pictures she hadn't seen in years appeared in gorgeous clarity on the screen before her. You can load directly from your PC or to several types of inexpensive memory cards.
