Summary: Got this for my Grandmother, and it gave her a whole photo album that she didn't have to flip through the pages. Average quality screen, decent size, a little low resolution for my taste, nice enough plastic frame, and we could send Granny updates using our outdated (small) camera memory cards - you can fit tons of pictures on a small card if you take the time to crop and scale them - otherwise, the frame will do it for you, which is easier, but takes more memory per...
Summary: Compre un artículo igual hace como un año, pero ya se me descompuso, por estar fuera del USA, no pudo reclamar la garantía, por esa razón volví a comprar otro, dado que me gusta el artículo, el cual uso en mi oficina. Deben mejorar la calidad.
Summary: Got 2 of these, one for mom and one for mother in law. Put a few hundred pics on each of family and they love them. Takes camera chips or USB flash drives, you can plug it in, pop in a card and go. If you need to use the settings/menu on it, they are a pain. The control buttons are on the back of the frame and not in good order, so navigating the settings is difficult. Once you set it up though, it's great.
Summary: Picture is fine. Ratio is good for photos because most people shoot in 4:3 ratio. Customer Service lacks knowledge. Reply after opening case number was slow. Unit lacks one major feature, you can't turn off transitions. You must have a selected digital effect between each picture. Some may like them, I don't. Other comments made are true, i.e., frame is a finger print magnet. All said, it's worth the price found at Amazon.
Summary: This is a decent picture frame, but lacks a remote and some basic features. The Good: The pictures look good on the 800x600 resolution screen. Accepts a USB thumbdrive. The Bad: Being that it is a Viewsonic brand, I expected better quality. Feels cheap in the hand, and sometimes the screen messes up when you turn it on. Turning it off and back on fixes it.
Summary: The first unit had to be return after about 20 days due to the frame "seizing" up about once per day. Exchange with Amazon was simple. The new one seems to be working fine. The frame itself is nice looking and the picture is very clear - much better than my old one. The only thing I wish it had was a random picture feature so that the pictures would not always go in order of the file name.
Summary: The 800 pixel wide display is bright and sharp and the 4X3 format is usually a better fit for most snapshots than a wide screen version. The high-gloss outer frame looks decent although it's a little wide for the LCD size. Allowing storage on both USB flash drives and SD cards is a nice feature and very handy if a friend brings over some snapshots on a flash drive.
Nice bright screen, but very picky on what it will display
20 August 2010
Summary: This ViewSonic frame has a nice bright picture, but I had no luck at all using an older USB flash drive. Also, some of my SD cards would display, and some not. Whatever device is used needs to have a full low-level format, preferably in FAT32. Once I discovered this, the frame seems to be working correctly. This issue is not covered in the documentation provided with the picture frame.
Summary: This frame is easy to use, shows great images and is not over priced. I preferred it because of the 4:3 screen, we have many pictures taken vertically. The only negative is that it always starts at the beginning of the slide show, not where it stopped.
