Have had this for 6 months, was worried by some other reviews I have read. Use it in my office and turn it off each night and on each morning. It works great. Use a thumb drive to store pictures - it is pluged into the frame and can be taken out to load pictures from my computer. it is easy to add or delete pictures through the thumb drive. My pictures are 3 mp and are very clear. You get a better display if you use all pictures oriented alike on the thumb drive, otherwise you get part of left and right cut off on tall pictures.
