Happy with purchase
on November 26, 2010
Like many others, I purchased this frame to upload photos as a Christmas gift (for my 84 year old mother-in-law). I've just uploaded about 200 photos and it is working so well. (I plan to add lots more pics, just wanted to see if and how it worked). This is the 2nd digital frame I purchased. The first was a Philips 8" frame from Walmart which froze on me while I uploaded pics (aurgh!!!!). Returned that and found this one on sale for $50 at KMart. I find the 8" screen a nice size, not too big or small. One big "must" for me was it had to be something that my MIL could easily work to get the slideshow started. This one seems like it will. I found the remote and the menu much easier to understand and work than the Philips frame.
I used a mini USB cable from my Canon camera to upload pictures from my computer to this frame. I found out you don't use the remote for that process, but it was easy enough. I just opened the H port file on my computer, had Facebook photos stored in my Picasa pictures, and exported them to the H port file. (a copy of each pic still stays in the Picasa folder). It went so quickly, which made me happy.
I like the random viewing option on the slideshow, and it has nice random transitions from photo to photo. I'm not too picky about picture quality, hey, these look fine to me. They will be perfect for my MIL who will love this gift. (Score one for me, finally! lol) I'm a little skittish about messing too much with this since I had a problem with the other frame I purchased. I just want your basic frame with slideshow with the above named options. Happy with the purchase.
