Summary: This thing is junk! The picture resolution on this photo frame is only 480 by 234, no matter what the resolution of the original photo. This extremely low resolution makes the display fuzzy, dim, and looking like it is out of focus, even for photos that would look great on a computer screen. Polaroid should be ashamed that they ever sold this piece of junk. Don't waste your.money! Look up the reviews on any photo frame before you buy it.
Summary: Best Price on the web. Just bought a second one. Load your pictures onto an SD chip up to 2 GB. Very good picture resolution. Can automatically run a slide show, or you can stop it on any photo. It has a built in Temperature display that also forecast the weatheer. It uses an outdoor wireless remote module along with built in hardware. Based on Temperature and Humidity trends, it estimates your weather forecast. It does a pretty good job.
Simply awful. Shame on Polaroid for marketing this junk.

Summary: This was received as a gift at Christmas, 2007. The unit looks cheap and the image quality is terrible to the point of being unacceptable. Also - THERE IS NO INTERNAL MEMORY - so the unit only works if you leave your memory card in the slot on the side! In other words, you can't store a single picture in the display. It has been many years since I have been so disappointed by a consumer electronics product.
Summary: I received this item as a gift and it has been in use for approximately 4 months. I recently disconnected the unit for a few days, reconnected it and it would not display images. The weather station feature stil works. Polaroid support reminded me that it only had a 90 day warranty, it was no longer covered, and the cost of repairs would match the cost of a new unit. The lack of quality and support is remarkable.
Summary: The image quality for this frame is remarkably poor. I am "feeding" it 10.2 MP images from my Nikon DLSR, and the photos are beautiful on my computer screen or when printed. On this frame, the images are dim, the contrast is poor, the resolution is poor, and the response is very slow. Finally, the device has a very cheap-plastic feel. I expected more from a $100 purchase, although I have not yet tried out other types of electronic photo frames for comparision.
Summary: Bought this for my in-laws for Christmas. Works as described, I wouldn't say there is anything too exciting that makes it different from other photo frames. It works well and the temperature etc is just an added bonus.
