Pros Has 2 alarms and displays pictures. Cheaper than just didgital picture frames and plays video
Cons Could be cheaper, but all picture frames are over priced.
Summary It is a clock radio, not a high def TV. I wouldn't care if it only played one video standard, as long as it was a popular one. When I wake up in the morning my eye sight is not ready to appreciate high def images, so the screen is more than sufficient. It is cheaper than dedicated picture viewers and does more. Love it!
Pros Clock, alarm and radio work fine.
Cons USB connection but it doesn't play ipod. Also the slideshow doesn't play while the time is visable and when the time is displayed only one image displays.
Summary I had been looking for a clock radio/alarm that would play my iPod and thought I had found it. So it was a big disappointment when I figured out that iTune/iPod files can't be played even tho there is USB connection. Then I put together a nice slideshow of photos, which runs great, but not when the clock time is visable. I would not recommend it.
Pros You are able to store music, videos, and photos via USB and SD card.
Cons There is no AM, only FM is available. Also, you cannot directly plug in your iPod into the device via USB. It shows up as no files in the folder.
Summary Overall, it is a great gift. I enjoy this very much. If you are a person that needs to wake up by an alarm, this is a great investment as it has the best alarm options. It will wake you up with nature sounds and show you the pictures of your choice.
Pros I paid much less at staples -- like $40. It's only worth $40.
Cons Sound is awful as well. Slide show just does not work. After a year, I tossed it.
Summary Not worth the price.
Pros Works Great... Video's and ALL! Just took a little investigation.
Cons The Rubes at Philips print that there are 2 formats that work, but the MP4 format doesn't work! Regular windows .mpg files work great! I just downloaded a free format converter (Prism Video Converter Plus)
Summary Once you find out what it takes to work then the clock radio-photo frame-video player-MP3 player works as advertised! Still could use a headphone jack and the radio needs AM.
