  • Overall, a great frame
    I only have two real complaints about this frame. The first one is that there was some trouble getting the SD card in the right way so it would read the pictures. I am used to the typical spring loaded computer and camera slots, so this one was a little tricky. Once it was in though, everything went great.

    The second complaint is that some pictures are a little pixelated, and under some settings, parts of pictures are not displayed. It's really not a problem, especially considering the price.


    I bought this as gifts for family members. I preloaded photos on 2GB cards before wrapping them. They worked perfectly, and was a great gift,...more info

  • Works
    So...the picture is fine, it's a keychain.

    It doesn't hold 56 pictures, it holds 55 because if you put 56, all the images get large solid color blocks running through them. No problem if you only put 55.

    The software to load the pictures is kind of bad. It completely disregards protocol regarding safely ejecting hardware. When you install it Windows tells you the software wasn't run past Windows Logo testing or something and that you shouldn't continue the installation.

    When you connect the keychain to the computer, sometimes the software fails to do something and so you have to unplug and plug the keychain in again. It took some voodoo combinations to get it to work after you have pictures already on it. The software doesn't save which pictures are on it, so you have to redo it every time, even just to change one picture. You also have to click and drag each picture individually as there is no select all feature.

    The on/off button on the keychain is hard to move.

    Software - 2 stars
    Keychain - 4 stars
    Total = 3 stars...more info
  • Only for the computer literate.
    If there is one drawback about this particular product it the user interface. It is absolutely horrid. The manual that comes in the box is basically a shortened version of the one that's available online. Why I have no clue, you would figure they would want you to know how to use their product. In addition, in the manual it states that you can connect the frame to your PC... this is NOT the case, even thought they provide the cables for you to do so. The only way to get pictures from your PC to the internal memory is to copy them to a jump drive first, and then load the frame. In addition, there is no way of knowing how many images the internal memory holds. It's basically trial and error.

    Now, to the good. The 800x600 resolution shows great pictures. The viewing angle is pretty good, as long as the picture frame is not too high above your eye sight. Height is adjustable. The frame around the display is very nice. Also good that you can pretty much connect any memory card or jump drive and view pictures directly from that source. The remote is great too. You can pause with a push of a button. Can't comment on it playing music, as I haven't tried and don't really intend to do so.

    Here's my final recommendation, if you're looking to give this as a gift, I would probably go with something that's more user friendly. If you're relatively comfortable with your computer and want something for yourself, then consider this product.

    PS. Make sure to download and run firmware update of the Matsunichi website before you use the product. Like I said, computer literacy is a must with this one....more info
  • Piece of junk
    The usb is the only way to power it. The battery runs out within two days and needs constant recharging. The software doesn't always want to work and needs to be manually recognized repeatedly. Service from the company purchased from is slow to non-existent. This Matsunichi photo viewer has low resolution and is a total piece of junk. I will keep it and use it as a prop, but it serves no functional purpose. ...more info
  • very objective review
    Just got my photo frame. here's a quick and HONEST review.

    PRO: PRICE, EASY TO USE (PLUG AND PLAY), NICE STYLISH FRAME

    CON: PICTURE QUALITY (more on this below), frame shuts down when i move it around. at first it was annoying but once i had it on my desk, i didn't need to move it and it wasn't that big of a deal.

    now regarding the picture quality, when i first plugged it in, i thought it was pretty bad. I never owned a digital photo frame and didn't come close to my LCD monitor. But i kept looking at it, and it wasn't all that bad. matter of fact, i'd now recommend it to my friends because for the price, it's definately worth it! so save yourself couple hundred $s and spend it on buying a nice new camera.

  • Good value with a caveat
    This is an economical digital picture frame with a small caveat. First, as if you needed this bit of advice, look for it on sale. A sale price makes it an even better value thsn it already is.

    You get what you pay for. The screen is good-sized, but the resolution is a bit on the coarse side. Purists who want super-fine resolution will not be pleased with this unit - but they will pay three times more to get that super-fine resolution. As it is, the resolution on this screen should be adequate for most people. By the way, I found that reducing the images to 800 x 600 provides a nice balance between image quality and image size. Roughly 100 photos required only 36 Megabytes of storage.

    There are thirteen transition mode and choosing a random pattern provides an interesting slide show. You can also choose the display time: 3, 5, 10 or 30 seconds.

    Viewing angles are somewhat limited, but this isn't designed to provide auditorium presentations. Color reproduction is faithful to the original, so the time you put in on color correcting your photos will not be wasted.

    The nasty part concerns image viewing size and a certain inflexibility in presentation.

    That's the good news. Here is the drawback.

    There are three display modes: Normal, Widescreen and Cinema.

    Cinema strikes me as useless: it stretches the left and right sides while trying not to stretch the center to fill the 16:9 screen. The results are grotesque.

    The Normal mode displays the original without changing the aspect ratio. Thus, regular photos will occupy only a portion of the 7" screen, which strikes me as something of a waste. So, either crop your photos as close to a 16:9 ratio as you can or live with the black sidebars.

    The Widscreen mode enlarges the photo to fill the 16:9 screen. Note the word "enlarges". It lops off parts of the top, bottom, right and left sides and adds a somewhat unappealing stretching on some photos. The close-up you took of Aunt Margaret will add the appearance of about of thirty extra pounds to her face.

    Your best bet to optimize the value of the 7" screen is to take the extra time and crop to a 16:9 ratio. Alternatively, you can just leave a lot of space around your main subjects to accomodate the trimming of the image in Widescreen mode.

    On the whole, this is an economical digital picture frame withe caveat discussed above. Do look around for this on sale to maximize value.

  • Decent Frame for the price
    We bought this frame as a gift to my wife's grandmother for mother's day this year. Overall the picture quality was decent. Kodak's picture frames have a nicer quality to them in terms of the display clarity. But they are understandably more expensive. My only issue with this frame was that it has no port (USB, et al) to load the pictures from a computer. It only has the memory card slot so you need to user a memory card reader/writer attached to your computer to get the pictures onto that card, then put the card in the frame. Luckily for us, we had a Kodak frame that DOES have the USB port on it, so we loaded the pictures onto that frame, ejected the kingston memory chip from the kodak, and put that chip into this frame before wrapping up the gift. All in all, the recipient was very happy with her gift and aside from trouble with getting the card loaded up with pics, this was a pretty easy gift to put together....more info
  • Love Love Love it!
    I bought this frame for my dad for Father's Day, but had also bought a frame previously for my girlfriend. This one was super simple to set up and we loaded up pictures as well as videos (with sound!). It offers different options for loading up pictures, and scrolling through the menus is very easy. The remote control doesn't work as nicely as I'd like (usually takes more than one push to get what I want) but overall I'm really happy (and so is my dad)!...more info
  • Matsunichi Digtal frame
    Great for the price, picture quality is ok not the very best, the was not problem load or going threw picture. i want something simple for grandma to work with. OVER ALL YES I WOULD SELL TO MY MOM

  • Very easy to use.
    Plugged it in and ran the install software and was ready to drop in pictures.

    The display isn't bad, I mean... it's a keychain, it lites up so it can be seen in the day and night.

    The software allows for firmware updates, but wants you to reset the device... but who knows how you "reset" it...

    Nice gift for Mom, imo....more info
  • Nice solid product
    I liked this frame. It's very simple and easy to use. One feature I wish it did have is a randomize feature....more info
  • Cheap and workable.
    Good for the price. Pretty hard to get the memory card out without using a tool. Grandma was really happy!...more info
  • 7-inch photoblitz
    Overall, not a bad product. The first one amazon sent me had a faulty film on the screen which wouldn't come off so they took it back and sent another at no charge. They even reimbursed for the return shipping! but that's not the point. Point is, it's a solid frame. Resolution is okay, pictures look decent, menu is easy enough to navigate, price was great. Unless you're a hardcore photophile, you should definitely grab this--but be sure to buy directly from amazon for free shipping and great return policy, just in case....more info
  • Good Entry Level Frame
    If you look too closely you can tell the resolution isn't hi-def...but as a present for relatives whose vision isn't all htat great anyway, it's a fabulous gift. Other frames were considerably more expensive, this is inexpensive enough to buy one for each set of grandparents and wow them.

    It's also extremely easy to load, just copy images to your sd or xd card, insert it in the frame, plug it in, and turn it on. It automatically puts on a slide show and even uses different transitions. I personally like the fact that it isn't overloaded with features I (or grandpa) will never use.

    The only reason I gave it four stars is because sometimes an image gets distorted, but by the next loop it is fine....more info

    This is a really great frame, but a bit difficult to program. I would recommend this frame, but not for the computer beginner. ...more info
  • Great Slide Show on your table!!
    I was given one of these for a gift and liked it so much I bought one for somebody else. So easy to just insert your memory card from your camera into it and have an instant slideshow on your end table for all to see. The black frame is very nice and matches other picture frames I have on tables....more info

  • Good for the price
    This has a lot of options and is great as a gift. I bought two for the holidays and they are going to great use. You can change the photos periodically and there are different modes to view. Good for the price but sometimes the resolution can be grainy. However, considering the price, it's still a deal....more info
  • Good for the money
    I am sure not the best frame out there but it looks nice, it is easy to use and it is inexpensive so we are happy with it....more info
