Smartparts SP800W Digital Picture Frame User Reviews
Very Good 8″ Digital Photo Frame
“Picture quality is very good. I am no “photophile”, but the screen looks great to me, even with the optimized pics (~30 to 75 KB). Solid construction (not flimsy at all). With USB connection, self installs as a drive letter (WinXP). Allows for standard drag&drop and copy/cut&paste functionality to load/offload pics. Optional conversion software (OptiPixPro) optimizes copies of pics for upload to the frame. I.e., it reduces resolutions unusable to the frame, auto-rotates vertical pics for proper viewing. Included remote is handy for pause/go-back/go-forward/zoom during slideshow. Quality wood outer frame. Handy stand holds frame at a nice viewing angle. 2nd extra SD/MMC slot hidden behind a cover expands “on board” storage capacity while still leaving the main memory slots open.” – By K. Sidley Jr.
A gift that keeps on giving
“I bought this as a Christmas gift for my mom, and I couldn’t be happier. She loves it! The frame was exceptionally easy to set up, and the photos are sharp and clear. I would buy this for myself, and I just might. “ – By G. Stark
“Have this frame for a couple of years now and it is working great, easy to connect to PC and download pictures, even easier to just stick a memory card in. I’m buying a couple of more for the parents and in-laws. “ – By E. Hunt
High quality wood frame, excellent value
“All in all; it does what it says it will do and does it very well. The picture is quality is excellent with good viewing angles. The menu is OK. When plugged into a computer it shows up as a mass storage device, so it’s very easy to load pictures. I don’t use the included software (which is good to use if you use the internal storage because it will compress the files to just the right size).” – By GKCMilner
