Screen is pretty mediocre
on November 18, 2013
Price is ridiculously good right now ($59 as I am writing this), but I wouldn't pay much more for this.
Pro's:Resolution is great compared to other frames and it maintains a 4:3 aspect ratio, it is pretty easy to use and has most of the adjustment options I would want. Good input options.
Con's: The quality of the screen is pretty much trash compared to my laptop's screen (macbook air). I want to clarify though- it doesn't compare to ANY modern laptop screen in terms of quality- even a cheap laptop. Don't be fooled by it's "IPS" classification. Everything looks quite washed out and I've played with the screen settings substantially. That being said, I suspect other frames like this one are probably even worse so I can't fault them too much here. Again for $59 this is acceptable, but if it was $100 I would be sending this thing right back.
This is probably fine for giving to your parents or someone who isn't going to care much about the quality. Manage your expectations.
If anyone else buys it, I found that the following settings replicate my laptop screen the best: Brightness:9, Contrast:4, Saturation: 15.
