"16:9 aspect ratio a deal-breaker"2.0 starson by jljohnson1984
Pros: Great display quality
I got to like the fact that no remote is needed
Cons: 16:9 aspect ratio...read on
Summary: I have also purchased this...but will most likely return it. What some reviewers have spun as a "movie-friendly 16:9 aspect ratio" is actually...ridiculous. This is a PICTURE frame... if it plays the occasional movie, great... but there is no big push I know of in the digital photography industry to 16:9 aspect ratio for PHOTOS. Now for the main reason you have purchased this frame, you must compromise the display of your 10,000 or so precious 4:3 ratio family photos for the .00001% chance you will be playing an HD Mpeg file... That is not a feature, or a mere drawback... it is a mistake and a deal-breaker. I already have an HD television. Trust me, if you have a large computerized photo collection like myself, you will not like how much gets cut off when this frame displays them, and the Fit To Frame option is not a suitable answer, as the large black bars on the side of each picture look... terrible. And just imagine how strange portrait-oriented pictures look this way! The 2009 Techie Big Whoops Award goes to Kodak. Too bad...because there is a lot to like about other aspects of this frame, mainly the display quality, which is very nice. Shame.
