Those old photo frames atop your dresser, desk, nightstand, and on your walls are vignettes of memories captured as prints in the era of film cameras. The digital-camera makes available a technology where photos don't have to be displayed as prints. They're displayed on screen, much like that of a TV set or a computer monitor. This frame uses LCD flat-panel technology and, at 2-1/4" deep, fits almost anywhere a standard frame would. The difference - this frame is not limited to display only 1 or a few pictures. A digital picture frame can display dozens (if not hundreds) of images off a digital-memory card.
Here's a dandy way to display all those digital photos you're accumulating. Display one or all (in slideshow mode) directly from an SD, MMC, xD, or CompactFlash memory card. It's a great way to view your favorites on a table or on a wall - just like a regular picture frame. Yet COBY DP882 adds a unique feature. It has built-in speakers so you can play MP3 and WMA music files from your memory cards. You can even create photo slideshows with music. The DP882 has a USB port that lets you play photos stored on digital media drives. Its LED backlit screen delivers bright images for viewing in almost any situation.
This is a perfect frame to give to your parents and grandparents. Let them see pictures of you all the time from a memory card you provide them. It has a dual-volt AC adapter for international capability.

The picture are on the frame was smaller than expected which is my own fault I suppose. The thing that bothered me the most however was the inability to easily transfer images on my computer to the frame. It's designed to take images off one of the memory cards you find on cameras but there was no way to move older images from the computer directly to the frame without extra hardware. I returned the unit and purchased a larger unit with the ability to transfer images directly from the computer for about the same price at a local H.H. Greg. The return process was exceptionally easy and quick. Much better than taking a unit back to the store. ...more info
The frame is nice but it was not what it said it was. I got the first digital unit and the interchageable frame was not in there. I contacted Amazon and they very graciously sent me a replacement. When the second digital unit arrived it was the same way. I ended up keeping the second frame even though it did not have the interchangeable frame because I had to have it for a Christmas present. Amazon said if they sent me another frame it would probably be the same way. Other than the fact that the description is wrong, the digital frame is nice for the price....more info
- This is a great frame
This frame is great. I love it. I created slide slows with music in windows movie maker...after I convert them to avi they play great in this frame. AWESOME!!!! I am one happy camper..I may have to buy a couple more of these frames.
- Good for the price
I am very pleased with these frames. They came very fast and are a good quality product....more info
- A little disappointed...
I have purchased two digital photo frames recently. This was one of the two. This Coby frame is a little more difficult to operate and the photos are not very clear. However, this frame was alot less expensive. So I guess you get what you pay for....more info

Small but large enough to view the pics. Also plays music!! Added bonus. Great value...more info
- Nice looking frame, but poor performance
I cannot get this frame to go through more than 10-12 pictures in slideshow mode before it totally locks up and I have to use the reset function built into the back of the unit. I was very disappointed as I ordered this as a gift for my parents who miss their out of state grandchildren and I wanted to be able to give them something special so they could see them everyday. It was easy to set up and the frame looks nice, but it just doesn't function correctly. Fortunately Amazon has a great return system and I was able to send it back relatively easy!...more info
- Nice device, poor quality control
This "brag book" was almost exactly what I wanted as a gift for my wife. A color would have been more attractive for her, but you take what you can get. By the time I gave it to her and she used it a few times, she noticed that the buttons did not work reliably. You have to push the buttons many times before they worked, and it seemed they were getting worse. The return period was over, so we returned it to Coby. We are waiting for the replacement....more info

I don't know what this product is or what it does, but my wife says she loves it. She received it for a Christmas present and said it was very easy to use and did not require a lot of time to display photos.
Happy customer with a happy wife!
- Good quality
Clear picture and nice wood frame. I like how it has random picture effect change. Easy to load. Highly recommend - good value. ...more info
- Good for this pice tag....
Looks of this frame are decent .. 2 interchangeable face plates...
Pixel resolution is not good but ok for long distance view...
Images need to scale properly for proper view(use less than 70 kb images).
Audio quality is good. Not All Video formats tried but avi files captured by canon camera were not supported.
Lot of memory card options.
Overall satisfied with product for price paid 40$....more info

- Coby DP848-128 8.4 Inch Digital Photo Frame - A Winner
I've studied digital photo frames for about 2 years. I've purchased 4 frames. This one is one of the best. The two most important features to me are Screen Brightness/Contrast, and the ability to display images in random order with variable transitions. This frame does it all. It's an excellent frame. I like the idea that they designed it to be able to swap the wood frame for another custom designed one. (The one furnished is not a standard size, but comes off, so you could have another one made to fit, from framing stock if you like)
I like the 4:3 format, which is the standard of many digital cameras. You do not have to crop images to fill up the full frame. Photos from other cameras that shoot 3:2 or 16:9 aspect ratio will have to be cropped and saved as new files on the frame, or the top/bottom or sides will display as black bars, where that area of the screen is not used, in order to get the photo to fit the display area of the screen. I prefer to use the full area of the screen for maximum impact, so I suggest cropping these other aspect ratio impages to properly fit the screen and display full screen. It only takes a minute per image, but makes a dramatic difference in the appearance on screen. All images should be resized to reduce the memory space on the photo frame built-in memory or on a flash memory card. For instance, standard 10 Megapixel images of 4:3 aspect ratio may take up 2.5 to 3 Megabytes per image, but when resized make take up about 10 Percent or so of the original file size, and will not appear any different on the screen. (The full resolution, full size digital photo details cannot be recognized on such a small screen as 8.4 inch, so there is no advantage to keeping the large, original file size. They just waste space that could be used by more photos.
Weaknesses - Not many, but it does have one. The screen brightness drops off away from the centerline, vertically especially, but also horizontally at around, I'm estimating) 30 to 40 Degrees from centerline. It's more noticeable in the vertical dimension.
Overall, you won't find disappointment with this digital photo frame. It's good great features and terrific value.

- Great Gift for Grandma
I bought this as a gift for Grandma, and it fit the bill beautifully. She has a Sony camera and uses memory sticks, and this frame accepts them as well as the more common SD and XD cards her "kids" use. As with many digital frames, the image quality leaves much to be desired, especially after viewing your digital pictures on your computer monitor (with a bigger and better screen). But for Grandparents showing off the grandkids to their friends and neighbors, it's great....more info
- Worst digital product I've bought
I cannot get this to cycle through more than 6 or 7 pictures before it totally locks up and I have to use the reset function built into the back of the unit. Right now it's sitting in a drawer collecting dust, as it is useless to me. I bought this several months ago and have tried since day one to get help from coby but with no result. They only have an online support system with no live intellect behind it. I will NEVER buy another coby product again. I advise those who do, to keep your reciept and make sure you are able to return the product. ...more info
- Coby digital frame
I chose this item because of its size, appearance, features,and the fact that it had gotten good reviews. One important feature was that it has sound. Not all digital frames have that option, and for me this was important. The frame was a gift for my sister, who has vision problems. She called me on Christmas Day and was so very, very happy. The pictures were bright, clear, and large enough for her to see without trouble. She told me she was viewing pictures that she hadn't been able to see for a very long time. I will be sending her pictures and video of the family here in CA via flash drives now. How much easier could this be?! I love it!...more info
- great product!
Everything is great about this product EXCEPT that the music stops playing when the slideshow starts. Why is that? wouldn't you love for an appropriate song to play in the background while watching a slideshow of your loves ones or a special event? That is just faulty. Otherwise, it's super easy to setup and use. Thanks!...more info
- Speedy delivery
the digital frame was new in a never opened box as promised. Was delivered before the promised date. Everything is good....more info
- Ratio problems
While the Coby (Coby DP-758 7-Inch Widescreen Digital Photo Frame) is a good deal compared with other frames, it has a terrible photo ratio. A standard photo shows up on the frame with black bars on the side which defeats the purpose of having a 7" frame.
We call Coby technical support and they could not tell us the ratio for the frame. I spent about 8 hours trying to figure out how to resize photos and ended up resizing the photos in Photoshop but this is a very time consuming process.
I'd recommend paying a little more money to have a more streamlined frame. It's not worth the headache to save a few dollars!!...more info
- Not usable
Coby 887 arrived as a Christmas present along with a 2 Gig CF card. The Coby photoframe would not accept the CF card. Purchased a 2 gig SD card, which Coby could read, but USB connection to computer would not recognize the Coby unit. Windows XP could not associate a driver for the unit and the Coby website has no drivers for this unit. Unable to load any photos directly.
One more try -- to buy a USB cable and try to connect a flash drive, after loading the flash drive from the computer. If that fails - and maybe even if it works - it'll get exchanged for something better, and usable.Coby DP-887 8-Inch Digital Photo Frame with MP3 Player & 2 Metal Frames...more info
- Coby DP-558 5.6" Digital Photo Frame with MP3 Player
I recently purchased a Coby Dp-558 5.6" Digital Photo frame for my wife. The purchase was made two months early (thnakfully) so that I could put together pictures with specific songs. I'm glad that I did purchase the product early due to the fact that the "USB" port for link to computer was PLUGGED. By plugged I mean unusable, so I contacted the manufacturer who instructed me to remove the plug. Well, before destroying the gift I removed the backing to see if there was an actual "working USB connection which to my surprise there never was as advertised by the literature. So I went to Radio Shack with Gift in hand and they were as baffled as I since they could not find in stock a USB with two male ends. So I have resorted to a flash drive. I did however like the fact that I did not have to adjust the resolution/size of any of the pictures and the picture quality was surprisingly good. The two interchangeable frames allow you to use at home for color coordinating with either black furniture or brown. Fun to set up and fun to watch....more info
- Average digital frame.
Got this as a present for my mom. She loved it. I didn't need any big features because my mom is technology handicapped so it works well for someone like her....more info
- This product works great
Easy to assemble and use out of the box. The remote is rather small, but usable. Other reviews stated some photos did not reach edge to edge, but there is an adjustment on the remote to change from the 4:3 ratio to the 16:9 making the photo larger. The only negative is fragmentation in some photos sometimes. Not sure of this cause. Otherwise, I would recommend this product to everyone. For a first time buyer of this type of digital frame, I am well pleased.Coby DP-758 7-Inch Widescreen Digital Photo Frame...more info
- Coby Portable Digital Photo Album
A great product. Small enough to carry in a purse or pocket. Resolution is fine and the capacity is large. Very easy to download photos into the
album. A winner!...more info
I gave this as a gift and was skeptical because of the very low price. I felt I had probably been duped into buying a paperweight. BOY WAS I WRONG! This frame is great, I have used other Coby products as well and they are awesome. This worked great and my mother loves it!...more info
- It's OK but not great.
I ordered this as a Christmas gift and sad to say that they had to give it back to me to exchange since the first unit would not even power up. After I got he second one, I decided to test it first before giving to the recipients. First thing I noticed was that SDHC cards do not work with this frame. I had to go out and purchase a regular SD card and I was then able to load in pictures. The pictures looked clear and vibrant in color. The idea of changing the face plate is great but it is fabricated of plastic, so to me the black face plate made it look very cheap. Not many options in user controls but easy to operate. I have better quality digital frames that are more user friendly and have better options in controlling the views of the images. I went for a cheaper model and I guess I got what I paid for. ...more info
- better than expected!
I was very pleased with this product and this seller. It shipped faster than I expected and the frame was very attractive and easy to use. It's simple to set up and the display is clearer than I expected it to be. I would definitely buy this product again....more info
- Costs less than half what a usable frame costs :)
I bought this frame because reviewers gave it high marks. I was shocked at how bad the resolution was after I received it. Partly it was a problem of the device doing a bad job of downscaling the images (as one reviewer described.) But mostly it just isn't usable quality. I wouldn't want this on my shelf no matter how little it cost. I returned this one and bought a Sony model with twice the resolution for about twice the price. At that resolution it's something I can live with on my desk....more info
- Coby DP-350 picture frame stinks
Come on, this thing should just work. But it doesn't. Drag-n-drop jpeg pictures and they show for a while (a couple of days at a time), then goes black...then the buttons stop working...then reset, repeat, rinse, repeat...sorta works, then goes black. This thing is a piece of crude...shoulda bought a kodak....more info
- Not too shabby
It works exactly how it says it does, so I can't be too harsh on it. I would have liked the picture quality to be nicer (it has large pixels so if you use it sitting on a desk the pictures don't look that great). Other than that its fantastic....more info
