backlight burned out in 2 months, RMA'd burned out again in 6 weeks

Pros: looked nice while it worked
Cons: The frame worked well for about 2 months. The backlight burned out and made the images very dark. I RMA'd it to viewsonic and they fixed and returned the same unit(same s/n). 6 weeks later the backlight burned out again. I wish I never bought this item. Save yourself the RMA pain and don't buy it.
Excerpt: I purchased this product to give to a client as an appreciation gift for a wedding I photographed. The memory card size (up to 32 gb) was great. The image quality is respectable even if using lower resolution Jpeg images. I also like the 8"frame because it will be fitting on small workspace.
Summary: The color in the pictures faded (almost like a photo negative) after 2 months. I restarted it back to factory settings and it didn't help. All of the photos looked washed out and there didn't seem to be anything to do about it, especially since the return-by date had passed.
Summary: We had a ViewSonic digital photo frame that used a flash drive for several years, and it worked great until it just stopped working one day. Since we had such a good experience with the first one, we bought this one to replace it.
Summary: Pros: The picture quality is pretty good. Cons: Getting pictures to display properly is a huge pain. 1) The frame doesn't use EXIF information, which means if you took a photo vertically, the frame doesn't know that and displays the photo horizontally, anyway.
Excerpt: Received as a Christmas gift. Took me 8 hours to load photos because of the totally inadequate manual. I had to resize almost every photo after I had them all loaded on frame, and now 4 weeks later the pictures are too dim to see and there is very little technical support.
Cons: DIFFICULT TO USE, Inadequate Manual, Small Display
STOPPED WORKING 3 DAYS AFTER EXPIRATION OF THE DAY THAT I COULD RETURN IT!

Summary: From the start there were issues- but I ignored them. I put the battery in that was included and it didn't work, then I put a new battery in- still didn't work on battery life. So I plugged it in and plugged in my settings- worked fine until today (and I started using this about 6 weeks ago- ) then...
