Summary: We've got couple of these frames for our parents in Russia. We were looking for easy to manipulate, but presentable looking frame for two 60+ moms without any computer knowledge. This frame was a steal deal (below 60$ each in 2009), is easy to manipulate, has support on several languages, looks very expensive and is sturdy. Frame supports different memory cards and has internal memory for 1Gb.
Summary: all and all its a fine picture/movie viewer. crisp clear picture, easy to manuver once you learn its system(expect difficulty initially). holds an awesome amount of pictures. strongly recommend, will not be disappointed.
Pretty cool little 'toy' - a good gift for grandpa

Summary: My latest display electronics have been Samsung - 24" wide screen monitor (using right now) and 52" LCD TV. I knew what I was looking for and getting with this item - I work in computers and had done my research. This frame met my expectations - the price was decent for the resolution, sleek look, good size, and pretty easy to use. The controls are on the front panel, but stay hidden until activated.
Summary: Just loaded our son's wedding pictures on it, to give to the new couple, and they look great! Clear and crisp. We have several others of different makes and the Samsung is by far the best. The only thing is, this model doesn't have a remote. But after all how lazy have we become as a people? They love it and so do we.Only wish we had bought the 4 gig card instead of the 2 gig, then we could have loaded alot more pictures. Great product. Great price.
Summary: If you intend to purchase this for its USB secondary mini-monitor functionality, just turn around and walk away (figuratively). It's absolutely wretched. The drivers brought my PC to its knees in XP and didn't even work in Vista 64-bit. When it did work, which was rare, it was extremely slow and the picture quality was only middling. I love the concept, but Samsung's execution is atrocious and their customer support has been utterly brain-dead. Just don't even bother.
