I was quite impressed with this product for this price. Based on the past reviews for the prior version, I think Viewsonic must have upgraded the software (firmware?).

It was easy to download the photos onto the frame. There is a quirk, that when you first attach the frame to your computer, it won't recognize it. But when you reboot the computer and attach the frame again, it will recognize it. It was documented in the manual so I was prepared. It will also read pictures off of a memory card (not Compact Flash, however) or from a thumb drive.

The slideshow feature works, shuffling the pictures. There are a variety of transition effects available.

The actual frame itself is also attractive.

The only reason it isn't getting five stars is because the pictures originally looked a little flat on the screen. I went in and boosted the saturation on all of them, and they now look fantastic.


Low price
Easy to get pictures on the frame
Nice picture quality (once I boosted the saturation)
Attractive frame


Quirk about USB connection
Won't work on batteries

i ended up buying 2 each of the impecca, nix, and viewsonic 15 inch digital photo frames. they all got returned except for the last viewsonic frame, which seems to work (at least for the past 3-4 days).

the first impecca frame didn't work right out of the box so i sent it back and reordered another one. the second impecca worked for a week and then quit working altogether so i sent it back and gave up on the impecca. when the impecca did work, the dark colors were really dark and pretty much looked black which was not very pleasing. as far as looks go, i didn't like the wide black molding on the frame. it's really ugly and seemed to dwarf the picture part of the frame. the remote was pretty intuitive and responded well. i don't know if this has the auto-rotate function, but i didn't not notice any sideways pictures. the order wasn't really random as it played the same "random" order each time the power switch was turned on.

next i tried the nix but the first one did not have any internal memory so i sent it back and ordered another. the second one wouldn't read my 16gb sdhc card, so i returned the frame and gave up on the nix. when viewing photos from the internal memory, the pictures were very clear and bright. the picture quality was much better than the impecca's. as far as the looks, i liked the thin black border around the frame much better than the impecca's as well. the remote on this one seemed pretty limited as i found it difficult to navigate the menus.

next i tried the viewsonic but the remote didn't work on the first one and i found it hard to control by the buttons on the back. i returned it and got a second one which has been working for the past 3-4 days.

I bought three of these for family at Christmas. The picture looked great. Everyone was very happy with them. That is until they each stopped working. They would get to specific pictures and the screen would fill with rolling vertical lines. The menu buttons wouldn't function. The unit was frozen. Turning it off and then back on got it working again, until it came to certain photos and again froze.

I called ViewSonic support. They provided no help, telling me to reset the factory settings (like I hadn't considered that before I called). I chatted online with a support rep. Again, they insisted that I just had a bad unit. They suggested that I send it in for repairs or return it to Amazon for a replacement. I just couldn't believe that I got three bad units, all with the same problem! What would make me think a replacement unit wouldn't behave the same?

I was about to return all three and look for a different manufacturer when I stumbled across this thread about another frame:


Turns out some frames (including this one) just don't like the progressive jpeg format saved by default in some programs (apparently including Windows Explorer when it rotates pictures). So I downloaded IrFanView (free) and re-encoded all of the pictures (only took a couple of minutes to do nearly 4000 pictures).

Now the frame works like a charm!

SHORT VERSION: ViewSonic tech support is useless. The frame is great so long as you ensure that your jpegs are not saved as Progressive jpegs.

- Great Picture Quality
- Easy to Use
- Quality wooden frame and matting add to the good looks
- Useful Clock/Calendar Display

Minor dings for:
- Poor picture quality before adjustments
- Membrane Remote
- Poorly documented features

Out of the box, the picture on this device was not good and overly bright. The pictures looked washed out and the blacks were not black. I had to make a couple adjustments to make my pictures look reasonably close to my calibrated IPS monitor (for me, brightness 5/contrast 6 looks the best). But once I made the adjustments, the picture quality is very good. For displying a simple photo slideshow, this frame works well. The colors are accurate (which is my biggest concern as a photographer) and the contrast is also good (again,after adjustments).

To get my pictures on the frame, I used my PC to transfer pictures to an SD card, and then put that SD card in the frame. After doing this you just turn it on the press the 'slideshow' button on the remote. I had no issues doing this, but as I have my pictures in 'shuffle' mode, It seems like I see some of the photos much more often than others.

I bought this frame mostly for the screen size, it has a lot of features like video and music that I won't use. However, I was surprised by a really nice and useful calendar display feature that has the time, date and calendat on one half of the screen, and 3 rotating pictures on the other half. I think this is the best way to leave this frame on a day-to-day basis (Calendar-style2). This looks great, but at first, it woouldn't stay in this mode for very long and would revert back to slideshow mode after a short time.
