Customer Reviews

The picture quality is great and the set up as well as operation is very easy.

First of all, keeping it connected to one's computer is difficult during transfers to the internal memory (~487mb) via USB.
R. Edwards
There's no option to view them randomly; they always show in the same order every time.

I purchased a Digital Spectrum MemoryFRAME ULTRA MF-801 based upon the recent "Best Buy" recommendation of Consumer Reports. Frankly, if this is best-of-breed, then this technology is not ready for prime time. In short, I would not recommend buying it.

On the positive side, the display quality on screen is pretty good, the remote control works well (despite limited options), and the frames (sheer black or a wood + matte) look pretty good on my desk at work. But this thing is touchy. Very, very touchy.

First of all, keeping it connected to one's computer is difficult during transfers to the internal memory (~487mb) via USB. The MemoryFrame loses connection to the PC an average of 2-3 times during a full transfer and requires a power cycle to reconnect it. The MemoryFrame copies files from the source PC randomly: it does not do it in ascending order by file name. So when the MemoryFrame drops-out during transfers, one is forced to repeast the entire transfer to make sure everything gets moved over.

Deletes from the internal memory don't always "give back" available storage. I eventually had to reformat it using Windows XP. The Slide Show controls are woeful. There are only three arbitrary speeds: "slow", "medium" and "fast" (with no explanation of what "slow" is) and with no further customization possible. You also cannot control how the MemoryFrame randomizes images (it doesn't seem to do it by file name). Some JPGs that display perfectly fine on my PC are completely FUBAR on the MemoryFrame (like distorted color bars on an old TV) and others fail to display but with a "Format Not Supported" message. All of these are all small JPGs under 5mb and most where shot with the same camera.

Pros: Great look and great screen resolution.
Cons: Just about everything else. Unhelpful manual, non-working remote control, and non-working setting for the speed of the slideshow.
This frame was very frustrating to get working. Maybe mine was defective--I'm not sure. But the remote didn't work, even with the included new battery in it. There are 3 speed settings for the on-screen duration of the photos: fast, normal, and slow. These are relative terms. There should be definitive time settings, such as 1 minute, 5 minutes, etc. I could not get the speed to work at all. The photos were on the screen a mere 7 seconds each! I'm going to try another brand altogether next time.

I purchased the Digital Spectrum MemoryFRAME ULTRA MF-801 digital frame based on Consumer Reports recommendation. This is one time they were way off. I had never used a digital frame before and the instructions that come with the unit are sketchy at best. The 90 photos I wanted to put on the frame were scanned photos from 50 years ago. I had placed a sequence number number, starting with 01, at the beginning of each filename for the order in which I wanted the photos to appear. When I loaded the photos, they were showing up randomly. There were a dozen or so that the heads were cut off and I had to go back and resize them. I submitted a question to the company via their web site on the sequencing and after 2 weeks, am still waiting for a response. I finally decided to call them by phone and was told I needed a 3-digit sequential number as in 001 at the beginning of each filename. I went back through renamed the files, reloaded on the frame and they were still appearing in random order. Another call to the company indicated that it "probably" does the show in sequence by the date on the file. I was asked if I used Photoshop and said no I used Picassa and was told they provide no support on that product and had to seek assistance elsewhere. I found a utility that allowed me to change the dates on my files, and manually, one by one, had to change each date. I reloaded the photos on the frame and they still were not in the sequence I wanted. Finally, after doing some internet research, I found that some frame slide shows go in the order in which the photo was added to the frame. So once again, I added the photos to the frame, one by one, and they do now appear in the order I want. Why didn't the support line know this and why isn't it in the instruction book?Read more ›

Verified Purchase
I had originally purchased a frame from Target but it did not last but a few days. This frame has much better picture quality at only a few dollars more than the Target frame. This frame is also the top rated digital picure frame on consumer reports and I know why. The picture quality is great and the set up as well as operation is very easy. I recommend it highly and with the Squaretrade 3 year warranty for only $12.99 it made it a better deal.

I bought one of these at Best Buy for $129.99 in December for my office. I love the piano black bezel and it is easy to use.

The outer diameter is 8" X 10", so I was able to put my own wood frame on it (GOLD looks hot!). My customers always comment on it. I use it as my clock, have it play music in the background and play slide shows of my vacation pictures.

I just bought another one for my wife. She put it in the living room, using the wood frame and ivory matte that were included in the box, to match our wood decor.
