Excerpt: Purchased this item as a gift for my mother-in-law. The control buttons did not work 90% of the time and the remote quit working almost immediately. It's not user friendly at all. I will lose $50 in Staples Rewards by returning the product so I'm exchanging it in hopes that the first one was just a lemon. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the second frame will function properly. Not very confident as the product seemed to be made of cheap plastic.
Summary: This item is easy to set up and very light weight. It has usb port and can use a photo card. I needed it lightweight because I want to take it somewhere and display pictures. I think it's a nice item for the money I paid.
Summary: 14 inches can't even describe the outer frame! I bought this for my grandma with eyesight troubles. It had to be large enough for her to see it easily, but small enough to fit in a certain spot on her wall. This sounded perfect - on paper. The screen was super small and distorted everything. Yuck.
Summary: The pictures look great, provided you are at an optimal viewing position. Off-axis viewing the images get very cloudy. This may be normal for a screen at this price-point, but I expected better, thus was somewhat disappointed.
No Random mode, became extreemely sluggish a month after the purchase
14 November 2013
Summary: The first problem was - no random mode, which is a pretty standard and very usefull feature. 10 extra lines of code would do it... But after a month it practically stopped to work - the reboot takes 5 min, and starting a slideshow - 5 min as well. Had to return it....
