Poor picture quality

Andreas Dahl Hansen, Amazon
21 October 2008
  • Summary: I was very excited to see this frame, and thought that would be a perfect gift for a fellow geek. I was extremely disappointed to see poor the picture quality - it looked like the photos were taken using one of the first generation digital cameras that came on the market some 10 years ago. The resolution was similar to my first palm pilot (IIIx), just enlarged. I sent it back after trying to get it to display pictures where you could actually see peoples faces.

The screens flickers and green colors show as black

Anthony Mai "picture frame", Amazon
17 September 2008
  • Summary: I purchased one of these and returned it the next day. The screen flickers and for any photos that have green colors in them (especially dark green) look black. I ended up buying a 8x10 digital picture frame with 800x600 resolution from Pacific Digital (no PC required). The pictures are great!

Great product if you use the fix

Anthony Mai "picture frame", Amazon
2 September 2008
  • Summary: This is a great product, a fine gift, espcially for those who love photographs but are not techie or don't have a computer. I was diappointed in the auto shut-off feature that couldn't be disabled, but the fix below from our friend " A customer from West Des Moines, Ia" is brilliant and worked for me the first time, with less than three minutes time invested. The company should send him/her a dozen of these picture frames for figuring this out!

Not at all like advertised

Anthony Mai "picture frame", Amazon
19 August 2008
  • Summary: My boyfriend gave me this digital picture frame as a gift, and we were both quite disappointed by the resolution. The picture quality is quite poor, and nothing like the great pictures they show on advertisements or the box. You can see each pixel on the screen, and you must be a specific distance away to truly enjoy the photographs. Perhaps we are just spoiled by the great quality we can see on our computer.

Fixing the auto turnoff (power saver)

Anthony Mai "picture frame", Amazon
6 August 2008
  • Summary: I agree the auto turnoff is a real annoyance. Especially since you have to scroll around and reselect your photo directory and hit the play button if the unit has been off for two or more hours. This power saver feature can be easily bypassed by placing a white sheet of paper about 1/8" in front of the motion sensor windows. I slip a sliver of paper about 1/4" x 1" into the motion sensor windows tucking the ends behind the metal.

Easy to use but poor resolution

Jram1224, Amazon
25 July 2008
  • Summary: This product is extremely user-friendly and great for my parents who are not very tech-oriented. It is easy to slip the digital camera card directly into the frame, but the process of scrolling through and viewing photos is quite slow. The biggest disappointment is the screen resolution. The only photos that look good are close-ups.

Great Graphics + Auto Shut-Off Firmware Fix

Jram1224, Amazon
13 July 2008
  • Summary: Great Product! There's now a firmware fix for the auto shut-off. My unit has a line on the setup screen to immobilise this feature. Good to hear a manufacturer responding to customer feedback - thanks Vialta! I think earlier units can be upgraded too - need to contact Vialta for that. I use Vistaframe at home for the family pictures, and also for business presentations. Easy to set up and I can run Powerpoint presentations when the slides are saved as jpeg pictures.
