Agree with others, there are better frames out there

Summary: This was something I expected to be an easy setup. I work in IT so expected plug, plug, insert, done. Everything was plugged in and I loaded the memory card with one photo to test. The frame didnt recognize my memory card. I then copied over to a usb drive and plugged that in. It asked if I wanted to copy over all images. I said yes and it uploaded my picture. I went to view it and got a 'Not Support'.
Summary: My girlfriend and I picked up the Phillips Photoframe so I can send it to my elderly mother as a gift. Because she lives very far away, I won't be able to assist her with any technical aspects. I basically need it to be VERY easy to turn on and use. According to the box it is. First of all, the documentation is abysmal. It basically tells you how to turn it on and extend the support to stand up the frame. The menu is absolutely counter-intuitive.
Summary: I received this frame as a gift not too long ago and was a little skeptical at first. I wasnt really in the market for a digital picture frame but after opening it up and messing around with it for a while I was impressed with how easy it was to set up. I can store lots of photos directly on the frame with its onboard memory or use a memory card for multiple storage options. The controls on the back of the frame are convenient and made navigating to the features simple.
Summary: I really like this frame. Contrary to other reviews, I found the setup to be pretty intuitive. Plugged the same memory card from my camera into the frame and was looking at my own photos within seconds. The design of the frame looked great on my end table and is always a show stopper with my guests who always ask "Where was that picture taken".
Summary: Simply loading a memory card into the unit appears to be easy but it doesn't load like other memory card devices I've come across. The card sticks out of the side of the unit instead of clicking in. Someone might try to force a card into the unit and wind up breaking it. Accessing/moving through the menu isn't too bad but is NOT intuitive. NOT something to turn loose on an elderly person. The 'auto-orient' feature is an 'auto frustrate' feature.
Summary: i took my parents to British Columbia last month for a family trip and returned with over 500 scenic photos and family pictures. Conveniently enough my best friend bought me this picture frame one month prior when she visited me; this is probably the best gift one can ask for. All i did was to plug in the SD card and left the card for easy photo transfers in the future. The frame automatically started to show the photos, no setup is was necessary.
Summary: I recently purchased this frame after a bit of research, mainly on my husbands part, who said it was a good deal based on the screen being digital respective to its size. Normally i leave all of the technology to my husband because for the life of me i just don't understand most of whats in stores these days but it looked simple enough so i decided to play around with it.
Summary: First off, you should know that I have a Sony frame, and that it was natural for me to compare the two. As far as SIZE, the image on the box is deceptive. The ratio of the matting and frame to the actual picture area is not accurate. The active picture area is however the same as the Sony. As for the FRAME itself, the Sony has only a small black flat area around the active picture area, versus a matted area and wood-looking frame that the Philips has.
Summary: This Philips digital frame is attractive, I really enjoy the wood and matted look. Definitely much more attractive than the standard photo frame. It did take me some time to figure out all the controls, but after using it awhile, it has become easy enough. The internal memory size is decent, which comes in handy if you don't have a lot of extra SD cards, which I do not and I prefer to keep the frame at my office. Picture quality = fantastic!
Summary: So we picked up two of these for our parents for Christmas tomorrow. I sat down to load them with pix because neither set of parents are tech savvy. WWEEELLLL we ran out and picked up a 2gb zip drive to throw the pix on and upload. Supposedly all one need to do is plug in the zip and it automatically will ask you if you want to save the pix to internal memory. HA! yeah.... no such luck.
