I placed it on top of a 60" high media cabinet, but the photos were not viewable standing up or seated. The viewing angles are severely distorted outside of a sweet spot of roughly 45 degrees vertical up and maybe 25 degrees down. So if you want the photos to appear clear when you are standing and seated, this frame should be placed no higher than 3 feet. This definitely is not the same viewsonic quality I remember fondly from their computer monitors in the 90s.
After playing with the frame for 1/2 hour, I turned it off. One Saturday a couple weeks after I set it up, I noticed that it mysteriously turned itself on in the late afternoon. I thought maybe I had accidentally set up an auto-on feature. I tried to access the menu using the rear buttons, but all buttons (including power) were non responsive. I unplugged the unit for a few days, removed the SD card, but still can't access any of the menu functions.
I asked Viewsonic for an RMA. I will update this post when I get a response, and if I get a replacement unit.
UPDATE: After several weeks, I've contacted Viewsonic multiple times via email and phone. I have a case number but no RMA. Their response is "someone will call me back to troubleshoot." AVOID THIS PHOTO FRAME, and all other viewsonic products.Read more ›
But be aware that TigerDirect does not have stock on the VFD823-50 and will substitute the VFD820-50, whose stand is *not* designed to support it in portrait orientation. I specifically wanted the VFD823-50 because the stand will support it either way.
I think it's wrong to knowingly keep listing this model no. as being in stock when it isn't.
Even worse is substituting a different item without permission or notification. TD knows it is not in stock - I talked to them about it 2 days ago, and they still list it as "In Stock". They are now telling me it won't be back in stock until after Christmas, and yet they continue to show it as being in stock. I ordered on 12/11, so they've had plenty of time to show the correct stock status. I am irritated that due to a time crunch, I have to go with the less suitable VFD20-50 that they substituted without asking.
