Excellent Buy


To the person that was dissatisifed with the 1/3" circle on 3 that she had bought and returned, that is the receiver for the remote, not a defect. It is barely noticible but a necessity to use the remote.

Beautiful picture, easy to use. Remote is great

Only able to show JPEG photo's

Large screen but some negatives


Wish I could have tried before I bought.

Large screen for the price

1) Bad viewing angle - more than 20 degrees the image is distorted ; 2) "Rotate" does not save the rotated image in memory. If you switch to a new image and then come back, the image is no longer rotated! What's the point? You're forced to upload an...

Used little/ display died


Purchased for my wife as a Christmas gift, she rarely turned it on so it would last a lifetime. She loved the large display, and wold use it only occasionally when guests or family were over, very disappointed to have spent that money only to find it...

beautiful screen display

We had this for a little more than a year and only turned it on for special occasions. The last time, the screen was black and tech support was NO help. Asked stupid questions and and eventually just told me that its not under warranty and basically...

Good deal overall


Does everything as advertised for a great price

The stand does not actually allow it to stand up; it's too short to balance. We bought it to put on a wall so it didn't matter

Wish I could have given this unit 5 eggs, the pictures look so nice.. But I did get a 15" frame at what a lot of lesser 8" frames are going for....Great Frame BUT could use some fine tuning.......

Pristine Image Quality, Looks like it would cost MUCH more, Would have easily earned 5 eggs BUT

NO CF CARD SUPPORT!!!!! This is the main reason I went for this model since I have a Crapload of CF cards that I use with my A700 DSLR... Also The stand is useless, I knew it would be bad but not this bad... But my rooms have walls. Also the 2GB card...

Great Product


Gave this to my wife for Christmas. Very satisfied with picture quality. It has random selection and variable photo picture introduction as it goes from picture to picture. In spite of the con below I would definitely still recommend this to a friend

I almost gave this a 4 instead of a 5 due to the frame support. This is definitely meant for wall hanging. With a little rebuilding of the support I was able to get it to stand safely

Great Frame - Large Disappointment


Gorgeous Frame, Great Value -- will be a 5 star rating once I get an undamaged NEW one

This was not a new item, they shipped an "open box" used item to me that already had damage. All the cables included were previosuly opened, twist ties off and some missing. New Egg is even trying to charge me for shipping to return it to get a...

Very Nice Display


The Photos look great. I formatted the photos for 12" X 9'" to fill the frame. It is best to figure out the brightness difference from your computer monitor to the Photo Frame and adjust brightness of the saved photos to match. Then the photos look...

It is my first frame so I can not compare it to others

Excellent Product with one poor design


I would wish if it had come with a VESA mount so that it can be mounted with universal wall mount.

This is an excellent photo frame.I am an avid lover of photo frames and i have bought many photo frames as a gift ,but this one is awesome.The build quality and frame finishing is very good .The display resolution is crystal clear.It plays MP3 very...

The stand is a poor design and i wonder how the design engineers have done a poor design for such a bulky frame.The frame will fall off easily if placed on a table with slight disturbance.This frame is meant to be wall mounted ; I would have given 5...
