Reviews around thing (4.51 of 5)

  • The only thing I didn't like about it was the hassle of having to unplug a USB stick from the frame and then load it with pictures from my computer when we had new photos to share.
  • The nice thing about this is that you can add pictures to this frame from your computer or smartphone(as long as the frame is connected to wifi).
  • It is absolutely the MOST FRUSTRATING thing to set up ever
  • If the cons above are the worst things I can find, it's a good buy.
  • I love that it connects to Dropbox - can't find one thing wrong with it!

Reviews around bite (2.00 of 5)

  • Still, the corrections are very 'broad' and I was unable to match my pro-grade DELL monitor factory calibrated color, but I was able to bring the much needed warmth to the skin tones quite a bit.
  • She loves being able to see new pictures of all of us!It's a bit expensive, but well worth it
  • Selfies and other images taken with lower-end cameras do suffer a bit more.
  • Frame feels a little cheap, and the onboard software/UI is a bit ugly and not too intuitive
  • She liked it quite a bit, however paying a monthly fee really began to add up and we discontinued it

Reviews around month (1.54 of 5)

  • this product had only a ONE month window for it to break?!$200 is way too much money for this product to break in one month with no policy for return.
  • Before purchasing it, I spend a few months reading a very large number of reviews and articles
  • Stopped working couple months in
  • After just less than 2 years of not-quite trouble free service (DLNA was always a little flaky), I was disappointed to find the frame dead one morning last month.
