Summary: I got one of the frames but no directions with it.I figure its easy to use and I can figure it out in no time. Well I was wrong. So many features and possibilities and no way to get all of them to work. Reading reviews help a lot cause I figured I was loosing my mind. The calendar feature is the best since I figured out how to set that up. I like it for that reason plus the alarm can be used too. The music feature leaves much to be desired.
Summary: Nice picture screen but very difficult to program or use. The menus, etc. are extremely un-user friendly. I.e. no chance of doing anything unless you have the manual open and in front of you. I gave it as a gift to my 65 year old mother and she has essentially never been able to use it unless I go help her to change the settings. Overall, I would have purchased a different digital frame if I could go back.
Summary: We purchased this frame as a going away gift for our coworker and she absolutely loved it. It is compact, full of features that young people like and has a very nice picture quality. One just needs to get used to the controls.
Summary: First I read comments this one on Amazon from customers, I am hesitate to buy it especially someone claims it cannot play pictures along with music in background. However, I like the style and price is reasonable. I bought this one. Then, when I got it and tried to see why someone said no music play along with pictures. I found out it can play all musics along with pictures. It is so easy to set it up. Just go to setup menu with setting auto start for picture+music.
Summary: I bought the ViewSonic DPG807BK 8" Digital Picture Frame a week ago, because I was impressed with the number of features available on this Digital Frame(Photo, Video, Alarm, Clock, Speakers). It´s Compatible Memory Cards and suppoted video Format. ViewSonic DPG807BK 8" Digital Picture Frame size is perfect for my office. I'd recommend the ViewSonic DPG807BK 8" Digital Picture Frame if you're on a budget.
Summary: I've been having a hell of a time getting video playback to work on this frame, but I finally got it working, and wanted to share a couple of tips. I'm going from Apple's iMovie to the ViewSonic digital frame. From what I can tell, iMovie will not export into a compatible format. The frame says it support MPEG-4, but what I have discovered is that you need to use XviD MPEG-4 with MP3 audio.
