This is a quick review because I don't have time to get in depth. I'm giving 5 stars because I purchased two to give as gifts and I'm buying three more, two as gifts and one for myself. The photos look good and the clock/calendar functions are well implemented. I can see this being good for the office and kitchen.

Here is what you need to know:
- The image measures 6" on the diagonal (3" wide by 5" tall).
- JPEG only, max 4000 x 4000 pixels
- The unit sits vertically. Landscape photos are automatically cropped to fill the screen. Landscape photos with subjects on the edges will crop out the subjects.
- The unit requires a dedicated SD memory card. Built-in memory is only 3MB.
- There is a coin type battery (CR2032 to be exact) that comes with the unit. The manual doesn't mention it but I'm pretty sure it is only to keep the clock and calendar when the AC power adapter is unplugged.
- The power cord is about 3' long.

This is a great photo frame for the money. I paid less than 20 dollars for it on Amazon.

I was getting the red circle with the dash for many of my uploaded pictures. After a couple hours I found that each image needs to fit the following criteria:
1. Around 1.5MB in size (might be smaller). If one has Photoshop CS5, one can easily batch re-size the file size. The quality loss is minimal.
2. Largest dimension can only be 4000 pixels. It scales pictures well that are 3:5 or 3:4.

I wish the manual told me about the file size limit and the power cable is very short so I docked a star.

The frame itself is great because it has these features:
1. Ability to turn off calendar (or have a calendar shown while pictures are cycled above it)
2. Landscape mode (all pictures need to either be landscape or portrait. You'll need to decide how you'll use this frame before putting pictures in)
3. Timed feature to specify hours when this will turn on or off.

I hope this helps!

I've purchased digital photo frames from various different companies, but find that for the money ViewSonic offers the best value. While some reviewers have reported they've had problems with frames from this company, I can say that I've had no issues whatsoever. I've purchased them for myself, for gifts, etc., and all have performed flawlessly. This particular one is the smallest one that I've used, but that by no means diminishes from its brilliant, fully saturated picture quality. It features an 800 X 400 resolution screen, which is more than adequate for the size of the frame. It's designed for displaying portraits and comes with a back stand that allows for the frame to be set up at just the right angle to achieve the best viewing possible. The black bezel is perfect for displaying portraits, as it provides the exact amount of contrast needed to show off your images in the best possible light. As with most frames, it comes with a clock and calendar, although I don't use either one. Setting it up is a breeze, taking a matter of a minute or two. As with most new digital frames, this one is extremely slim and will fit just about anywhere. It comes with slideshow mode, which is common to all digital frames. One nice feature is that it will automatically adjust to different lighting conditions, so if your room is very bright, the image will self adjust to a lighter shade. All in all this is a superb frame and for the amount of money charged it's a downright steal. It makes a great gift too.

Purchased two for the folks. Worked right out of the box with little setup. Have more options then they advertise, and that makes for a happy customer. Timers to have them shut off automatically at night or when you leave the office.

I have hundreds of photos taken over the years and I enjoy all of my photo albums, but I wanted to be able to see all of my pictures without all the fuss. So, this digital frame is the perfect solution. I was very happy that it can handle memory cards up to 32gigs because my photos take over 20gigs to store. So, I set this frame to randomly display from my library and I always get a surprise when it changes. The set up was easy for me because I read the instructions. I hear that reading instructions isn't cool any more, but I don't care about that.

Stylish, light and very versatile! I'm totally impressed with that little guy! More than a dozen quite useful options and functions. Not too big, not too small - makes a perfect addition onto your desk or nightstand. It can be a really good present for your friends and loved ones too. In about 10 min. it was up and running! Downloading pics on 1GB SD card (which stays IN permanently! btw) from my Mac & Win PC was a breeze. Easy! Out of all digital photo-frames, I've ever owned (Sony) this one is the BEST! Light sensor is a hell of a kick! I'd HIGHLY recommend it to everyone! You'll love it, I guarantee! P.S. As for picture adjustments: resizing, viewing mode, brightness, etc... Gosh, read the freaking User's Guide! It's all in there!

First off this has amazing screen quality. I had held off on digital frames because of all the other options for viewing photos. But I had many ViewSonic monitors back in the day and the price for this is low enough I thought I would give it a try.

I give it a 5 for screen quality. Truly amazing quality. The colors are vibrant, quality is detailed, backlight works great. Photos look amazing. You can set the view mode to landscape. It doesn't fill up the whole screen with landscape photos, but most of it. I am glad this option is availabe as 80%+ of my photos overall and it works out by far the best for my photo collection. There is an option for 'auto' display of landscape photos if you want to keep the frame as a portrait frame. The system chooses mostly the middle of a photo and it fills the screen.

Actually a bigger annoyance is that when you choose a random order for display of photos it does not seem random at all. I currently have about 1,200 photos and the same 30 or 40 out of say the first 100 show up every time after you start up. No way that can be random. It would be so much better if it had a true random number generator sequence. And really how hard could that have been to put in the software? This happens after auto shut down. After unplugging the unit. It is VERY annoying.

If you are like me and most of your photos are in landscape this is still a good buy. And you might like the auto display option more than I did. I didn't expect though that a random function would be that hard to implement. Really, really annoying non random 'random' function. Without that glitch, 4 or 5 star product.
