Summary: First negative point is that it doesn't reduce the photo size to fit on the screen automatically, so you have to reduce all photos to 1024 before putting them on the SD card. Second negative point is that after 10 months it stopped working. Now when I turn it on, it shows the Viewsonic banner and then shuts down. I have already tried changing the SD card, the power cord and nothing happened. I'm trying to contact Viewsonic, but got no questions from them...
Summary: We bought two of these to give mine and my wife's parents for Christmas gifts this past year. They have been using them every day for two months now without a single problem. The screens are brighter than the Samsung unit I bought my wife last year. I ordered a couple of memory cards to give with these gifts. The remote controls are a real plus.
Summary: The best way to get the most out of this Digital Photo Frame is to make sure that all the pictures/photos that you want displayed are already nicely cropped/sized/etc. Otherwise the photo will look distorted. For those photos that are already formatted, the display is great. The colors are nice and overall quality is excellent. Beyond the formatting issues, I found the remote functionality to require too many "clicks".
Summary: I ordered this product for Christmas 2011. The product arrived with a crucial piece missing. When I contacted ViewSonic customer service, the customer service agent shouted at me then insisted that nothing would be done before mid January and moreover that there would be no compensation for the situation. He even demanded that I email to him a copy of the confirmation from Amazon.com in order to receive the part mailed to me to complete the order.
Summary: The ViewSonic Digital Photo Frame (10in) is an all-around great product. The size is quite worth it. Photos are easily seen from a slight distance and the overall appearance just seems nicer. The main downside to this frame is the 128 MB internal memory, which, with high quality photos only holds about 100+ photos.
Summary: Pros: Very simple to setup, just plug and play, very bright display. Even for elderly folk it came with huge simple instructions with 1-5 words per instruction with big pictures and big fonts. Cons: Too simple. very basic menu, in fact i was so amazed at how simple it is i took pictures of it and will upload under customers photos... NO AUTO ROTATION?!?! my cellphone, web cam, laptop, digital camera, wii, gps, and even my little space heater knows which way is up.
Summary: I already own a Kodak photoframe which has a sharper image quality. I thought of upgrading to a larger frame to be on display in the living room. Well, I would say I am quite happy with that for the price. Just one little thing is that the pixels doesnt make the image super sharp. All in all, its worth a buy for the price.

Summary: What to buy my mother on her 90th birthday was challenging, to say the least. I scanned in very old photos of her, my dad, my sister and me as kids, their friends, etc. Then I worked through piles of 35mm slides and converted those to jpegs. Then I added the digital images from my cameras. My husband cleaned up the old photos, giving all a fresh, nearly new look. This product handles all with ease! Does my mom like it? You bet!
