When it arrived I promptly plugged it in and then loaded 1,000+ pictures on my flash drive, which then I plugged into the usb 2.0 port. Right away images started displaying, at the default of 5 seconds a picture. I then went into settings and easily was able to figure out how to change to 'random' and set the auto on/off settings. I am technologically adept, true, but I handed off the remote to my daughter (14) and she quickly had figured out how to surf the pics, rotate them, etc.
Overall, I would definitely buy this again or suggest to another. Here is the top reasons:
1. Plug and Play makes it a no brainer. You can send off to someone with an accompanying flash drive and just tell them to stick it in and power on.
2. Can be wall mounted and has a long enough cord to accommodate.
3. At 10" this is a good display area and produces a crisp image.
4. As long as photo is correct when loaded on flash (see point #1 below), screen does a good job rendering and scaling it to size and resolution.
Cons or 'could be better':
1. Make sure your pics are orientated (turned rightside up) correctly on your flash drive. Otherwise it will show them sideways or however they were saved, it will not auto rotate them. The same goes for resolution or large scale photos (this is a minor issue for most since most cameras stick to common sizes/resolutions).
2. I put the frame on my wall unit (entertainment center) and the angle of the stand meant it was hard to see the photos when sitting on my couch 10 feet away. I would have liked an adjustable angle on the stand so I could angle it forward for better viewing. Instead I used a curio from my collection to elevate the end of the stand arm by about 5" to correct the viewing angle to my needs. Minor, but a bit of a jerry rigged manner of solving it.
3. As others have said, random doesn't seem to be truly random, I swear I'm seeing some pics more than others I haven't seen but once in a blue moon.
There have been a handful of less than stellar reviews here but, if one takes into consideration what this thing IS, most can be totally circumvented. One needs only take into consideration that this device is a "one trick pony" and will have, to keep the cost down, JUST enough horsepower to do that one trick. There sure won't be a very big processor or a ton of working memory in this thing.
One of the issues that was alluded to in some reviews, sluggish response, is actually addressed in the manual for the frame. The manual recommends re-sizing images to 1MP for peformance reasons. This makes sense as the teeny CPU and working memory in the frame will most certainly struggle to resize much higher resolution images to display on a device having a much lower resolution than even the cheapest currently available digital cameras. Rather than shoot for a specific megapixel value, I re-sized all the images I had to the number of pixels high the display is. In this way, the processor in the frame has to do little to no resizing of the image to display at all. Further, the image processors in even the poorest image editing software on a PC will be superior to those implemented in the frame's firmware and do a much better job of scaling resulting in much better image quality overall.
If you're putting a ton of images on the frame, "Preview" (on Apple OS X) or the freeware "irfanview" (on PCs) have very simple steps and do a great job of bulk re-sizing of images. Just set the height in the tool you use to re-size to 600 pixels, tell it to maintain aspect ratio, and you'll end up with images that are perfect for the frame and easy for the CPU to present on the display.
The other problem seen was, even when telling the frame to display images sequentially, it showed them somewhat randomly and did not show all the images on the memory card. Initially, with about 3,300 images loaded on the memory card to display, I experienced the same result. However, putting on my engineering hat and thinking again about the processing elements in the frame being rather limited, it occurred to me that, in that 3300 images, there are a LOT of bytes in the file names. For my own reference, after vacations, I tend to rename image files to having descriptive file names. The frame doesn't care and, in this case, I don't either since all I want to do is see them. Using a bulk file re-namer, I renamed all the file names to a simple sequence number - in my case from 0001 to N. I used the leading zeros to ensure sequence rigidity in case the sequential parsing algorithm used alphabetic rather than numeric sequencing. Had I not used leading zeros and had simple integer counting, with alphabetic sorting, the order may well have been 1, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 2, 20, 21, .... (have seen this occur more than once).
As soon as I made the change to simple 4 character numeric file names, the frame displayed every one of the over 3,300 images in order. As a bonus, the image transitions smoothed out and run more quickly as well. Also (and this is only conjecture), by re-sizing the images, I was able to get the 3k plus images on a rather small SD card (2GB with tons of room left over) which may well give the device a much smaller address space to have to deal with were one to use the maximum size 32GB card.
With those two things taken into consideration one ends up with a stellar device at a great price. I will grant you, as another review said, navigating the menus with the remote is sluggish. It's the same with the hard keys on the back of the display. That said, since my use of the menu was to get it set up initially and then ignore it while it turns on and off when I specify while it displays pix between these times, it is a small annoyance. If you want something to be totally interactive with for images or videos, use a PC.
Couldn't be happier.
