    Disappointed

    My teen son bought this as a gift for me for Xmas and the slideshow does not work!!! Tried to exchange at Best Buy for identical item and since I didn’t have a receipt they would not exchange it. So disappointed in Best Buy and will never purchase anything from them again. I was not asking for a refund, exchange for identical item!! And it was a gift! Not everyone has the receipt for a gift. I contacted Aluratek directly and they were ZERO help. Wanted me to pay to ship it to them for them to look at it. DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS BRAND!!

    I went with this frame because it was less expensive than some of the others. I loaded photos to an SD card, and just inserted into the slot on the back. There are different settings you can choose for your photos, or you can choose to just show a clock. The only complaint I have is that the buttons on the back aren’t the easiest to use when navigating through different options. Also, for some reason it wouldn’t always read my SD card, so I had to take it out and put it back in. The photo quality shown though was very good in my opinion.

    Junk

    It is junk. Some of the pictures would show sideways or upside down, so I corrected them which was a long and tedious process. But when I would go back to slideshow mode they went back to the way that they originally were with no way to save the right way. I am pretty tech savvy, but this was ridiculous to figure out, with basically no useable directions. I threw it away, rather than donating it and aggravating the next person

    I am a photographer and I purchased this for a Christmas gift for my best friends. I was very excited about it until I loaded the SD card with pictures I took of them and viewed them on the frame. The quality is VERY bad and the frame distorts the images so that they become stretched. The transitions between images are also very choppy and “cheesy” like an old windows screensaver. 10/10 would NOT recommend.

    I go this to display photos of my vacation. It plugs into to wall (no battery) and accesses photos automatically thru an SD card. I used an high quality SD card. Most photos came off an IPhone. The device stretched about half the Iphone photos in the horizontal direction so they look odd. Not sure why or how to fix it. What to say....

    I have read so many bad reviews that I am not sure if I should throw the box away or keep it for a possible return for me the hardest part was to set the setting, because is very hard to do it from the back and the direction are not too clear. I put a USB with a couple of picture and so far is working. i just have it for few days i hope it wiil work.

    It does the trick and works well. Transitions are a bit laggy and unrefined. All pictures have to be jpeg to play. Something to keep in mind if you shoot raw photos. The frame is all plastic and it looks and feels it. I would recommend it if you need something simple or giving it as a gift.

    The system seems well built although the menu is a bit clunky. Requires a USB or SD card though I’m not positive if a micro will work. I removed it from the frame it came with and built my own to fit within a nightstand i built

    For $50 the is not worth the price, The whole back piece gets really hot, you have to shut it off and turn it back on to update the date on the calendar feature. its really cheap plastic. The pictures are grainy and look funny because they are all stretched out. Save your money.

    Pretty frame but functions don't work as advertised. It should be a simple firmware flash, however, Aluratek don't have any published firmware, nor do they answer their phones. Worst birthday gift idea ever. Learn by my mistake - don't do it!

    This frame worked fine for about 7 months. Now all of a sudden it will not repeat through the pictures. Stops after one round. I checked, and it is set to repeat. Also, very minimal instructions included with frame.

    I bought a USB stick, loaded the pictures and just plugged it in and wallah, it went to work showing all of them. I had to make one adjustment in the settings because the aspect ration was off but that is all. So easy and it looks nice too.

    Good basic frame. Does not handle portrait orientation-had to force some into that, but it works well without complicated controls. This is for an elderly friend with memory issues so the pictures are wonderful for conversation starters.

    The unit seems to ignore the slideshow transition time, and rotates through the pictures every 5 seconds no matter what I choose. Also it doesn't auto rotate vertical pictures, these are displayed sideways. Returning it.

    Picture quality is great, a little difficult to upload photos and put them in the order you want to play them, and controls are a bit difficult to use. Overall though I would recommend for the price!!!

    Purchased this as a gift, and opened the frame to attach my pictures. I loved this so much it was hard for me to wrap the gift and not keep it. Has clear crisp picture display, with a nice frame

    The price is what I was looking to spend. The frame is nice, but yeah its not super technical. You get what you pay for ...so overall it's a simple basic digital frame that works.

    Flips some photos 180° and stretches others. Not worth the cardboard box it comes in. Don't waste your time waiting in the return line like me.
