Pros Good price and nice picture. Easy to setup for viewing pictures.
Cons Slideshow can't display pictures from mulitple sources at once. Slideshow won't pause or go back.
Summary I was happy with the purchase. I thought the picture quality was very nice, but probably could find one at a higher price with a better picture. I modified all of my pics so that will be 800 x 600 and it handled them very nicely.
Only a couple of small issues. During the picture slide show mode, it looks as though you can only display pictures from one source at a time. So if you have pictures on both the internal memory and a CF card, the slide show only shows pics from one source. Not really a big deal. Remote fits in the CF slot, don't think there is room for a card and then the remote on top of that. During picture slideshow mode if you see a picture you want to pause on, I couldn't figure out how to pause the slide show or go back to a previous picture. I needed to use the remote and view the pictures manually which isn't that hard.
"Excellent buy!"on by austinlisa
Pros Great picture quality, display size, and features.
Cons Minimal-Matt could have been made to remove (and replace), housing for remote should be somewhere other than CF card slot. Removing back from frame is diffucult (can pop out with a paperclip).
Summary Love the 8” PanDigital Photo Frame!(and I’ve done quite a bit of research). Here’s the scoop on frames… The 5” ones are too small (unless you live in a cubicle), the 7” ones are in widescreen format (16:9 aspect ratio) – which is a ridiculous format for photos (everybody’s short and fat). That leaves the 8”, 9”, and up. In my opinion, don’t bother with anything under 8”. The PanDigital (which I bought at CompUSA for $149) is definitely the best value for the money. Really nice display size, quality (even compared to the 9” Philips – which is $100 more & doesn’t have a remote), and features. The fact that the frame allows for random viewing of the slide show is a big plus. I’ve seen complaints about this feature missing in other frames. At first, I thought the remote didn’t work, but I discovered that you can’t press the button with just your fingernail. You have to use the pad of your finger and cover the button completely. After figuring that out, I’m able to use the remote up to 22 feet away! I stopped measuring after that. (Could this be the problem others have experienced saying you have to use the remote a few inches from the frame?) I like the two frame choices included (my second frame is black acrylic-unlike your picture). They could have made it easy to remove the matt inside to replace with others, but they didn’t. I did have to exchange the frame once due to an occasional mild horizontal flutter (or shaking) in the photos. Don’t know what causes that, but it would stop after awhile. Hopefully the new one won’t have this issue. I can’t speak to the video, speaker quality, or mp3 aspects, as I did not buy it for those purposes. However, for pure digital photo display, it’s a great buy!Updated
I don’t use the internal memory at all, so I can’t speak to that either. I prefer displaying more photos, so I have them on a CF card or flash drive. (It takes 2 seconds to add or delete photos on these devices.)
Pros Great to use at the office
Cons Screen started going out w/in 9 months & mfg wanted me to pay $55 to replace it. What a rip off that it didn't last a year for the price I paid. Mfg wouldn't work with me on replaces their product
Summary Short term product. Only got 9 months of use out of it before started going out. Not satisfied at all. At first it was great. Little did I know it would be short lived.
Pros While it worked it was nice.
Cons Not a good value, should last forever, its digital. Got it for Christmas, so it was 6 months used.
Summary Do not buy spend some money on a product that will last, put this company out of the digital frame business by not buying this one.
Pros The few things about it that work correctly are OK and the images are just fine when you can get them to display.
Cons Malfunctions at almost every level. The slideshow function only displays a few of what you select, sound is awful and tinny and the function is cumbersome and futile.
Summary This Product is Garbage. I just returned the second one I bought after believing the first one must have been defective. The second was just as bad as the first but in some different respects. The slideshow, if it works at all, never ever displays more than about 12 photos and then starts over at the beginning. The 'shuffle' doesn't even come close to working. Every time you have to start over or pick another picture, the music starts over at the beginning every single time. A truly terrible product and I don't want people wasting their time with it as I did.
