Summary: I set this up (for both) to have it automatically play pictures when it turns on, the default is a menu. That way you put in the memory card, flip the switch to "ON", and it starts playing.
Pros: This frame is fantastic. I bought one for my 85 yo grandmother, and for my fiance (28). Both were very happy with the style of the frame as well as the quality of the pictures it presents. Setup is easy, didnt even read the instructions. It takes multiple types of memory cards and even allows you...
Cons: They dont mention that you can take off the silver/translucent outer frame (which displays blue lights on one setting) and you will have a very nice, formal, match with anything, matte black frame. Grandma liked the frame with the silver/clear outer frame (&blue lights), but the fiance likes the ...
Summary: LED's are a nice touch, but just seem to be a low attempt to be flashy. Haven't tried the video player and music player features, only bought it for the pictures.
Pros: Very easy to set up, just plug it in and you're good to go. Drag and drop simplicity, no unnecessary software or anything. Good display, crisp colors, not necessarily top of the line, but for the price you can't beat it.
Cons: The build of it is good, but the clear frame feels (and somewhat looks) a bit tacky; could use some tightening/adjusting. Looks ok overall, but doesn't really have that high quality look.
Summary: serial numbers were "eligible." I asked if I could send a jpeg of the back of the unit via email and she stated it must be sent via mail "because that is the only procedure available.
Pros: Great picture frame. Easy to use. High quality. Great resolution. Lots of features. Modern look.
Cons: ViewSonic Rebate Policy...I bought this for my wife for Christmas. My choice was somewhat influenced by the available rebate. I printed off my Newegg invoice and cut out the UPC and serial numbers as required by the rebate form (this makes it impossible to return merchandise to Newegg... Make sur...
Summary: The LEDs on my frame were not faint as others have reviewed, they are bright in the middle of the day, but they are sort of a directional beam so its not like the clear parts glow blue more like become blue spotted. Sometimes its cool but i keep them off mostly. Its a lava lamp-like novelty thing.
Pros: The frame was super easy and understandable to get going immediately. No need to fuss with settings and syncing simply copy your photos onto your frame through your PC. The frame has quite a bit of internal memory to start with and each card slot will read as its own drive from "my computer" You ...
Cons: The bad thin about it which I am trying to research now is that I couldn't get the photos to display randomly either. It seems to sort them into alpha-numerical or time created.
I am very happy with my decision to buy this product.

Summary: I wish it had more features that i could set the timer for each slide show between pictures. also if i could do the set up on computer instead in frame,
Pros: I bought this gift for friend of mine who just got married. i think this is the best gift that i could get. it was easy to setup. just plug and play. i bought SD card along with frame but i was worried that i dont have card reader to copy file from my computer to SD card but guess what this digit...
Cons: so far i dont see any problem. i trust brand name for more money. Viewsonic is reputed company for monitors.
Digital Frame is wonderful for pictures with some minor flaws

Summary: The picture frame works extremely well in displaying pictures The brightness, color, contrast and resolution are all excellent. Loading pictures is very easy. I was very impressed with the overall quality of the ViewSonic product, and I usually find this the case with this company.
Summary: Overall the picture quality, look and, feel of the frame are very nice and well put together. I gave it a 4 out of 5 because I really wish you could randomize the pictures but I would still recommend this product for anyone buying their first picture frame.
Pros: This is a great looking picture frame that is easy to use right out of the box! I had pictures viewable in under 10 minutes! It connects very easy to my computer via the USB adapter that came with the picture frame. A folder opens up and all you do is drag and drop.
Cons: First of all, there is no way to randomize the way your pictures are viewed. That's actually a big deal to me but I bought it for my girlfriend so hopefully she doesn't mind. Second, the LED lights are a cool thought but there has to be hardly any light around the frame for it to really be notice...
