Strengths: Easy setup. Works with all media -- CFs, SDs, etc. Includes remote

Weaknesses: No directions; no CATV connections (must use S-video)

Summary: Proudct works as promised. Displays pictures clearly on the TV. Easy setup. I have attached the device to a RF Modulator so that we can show pictures on any TV, while listening to music through the TV. While setup is easy, the product contained no directions in terms of functions and use. You need to play with the device to figure out how to rotate pictures. Would have been nice if they provided some instructions. Remote is a nice feature. Overall good product, but don't pay to much for it. While a lot of stores are selling for over $30, it is available for less than $15 at a number of reputable merchants.

Strengths: Easy hookup to TV (all cables included), handy remote control, pictures look great on a large TV screen

Weaknesses: Would be nice to go directly to a picture rather than just the "next" or "previous" image, lack of info in the User Guide.

Summary: This is a pretty nifty device to view digital camera pictures. The device is simple to hookup to any TV with composite or S-video inputs. I was surprised to find both cables included. The images look great on my 32-inch TV. The zoom and rotate functions also come in handy for additional display options. You can vary the slideshow delay (which seems to default to about 3 seconds) to add an additional 1-60 seconds.

I wish you could directly access a specific picture rather than just scanning through the entire memory card. The User Guide only contains instruction on how to hook it up to a TV. It contains no explanation of how the device or remote control functions operate.

Strengths: Ease of use & setup. Small size & portability. Remote control. Features (zoom, rotate & various display modes)

Weaknesses: I cannot use my xD-Pic card (my camera also uses CF cards which work in the Photo Viewer). Only supports JPEG file resolutions up to 6 MP (I am forced to use reduced resolution pics).

Summary: An easy to use piece of equipment for a great price. It's so much easier to put on a slide show sitting around the TV. Digital slide projectors cost a bundle.

However, it doesn't support the new format of media.

Strengths: It works! You can put it in auto mode and set the time to change or manually change the pictures.

Weaknesses: When in auto display I had to first press pause to get the "Rotate" or "Previous" buttons to work.

Summary: Having used, or tried to use, the other brand of card reader this one was a pleasure. It showed all the photos on the card, the zoom feature was nice. No problems yet!

Strengths: Easy to hook up and operate. Automatically recognizes a digital card when inserted.

Weaknesses: Cannot play AVI or other video files that may be on the card.

Summary: This device is outstanding especially for the money. You can view your pix in a slide show, one at a time, or preview several on the screen, selecting the one you want to view full screen. You can also choose between the standard television screen view, or a letter box view that is better resolution.

The pix can be zoomed, or rotated with ease, allowing you to look at greater detail, or from a different angle. I have always used a computer screen to view my digital photos, and this makes a family viewing so much easier allowing everyone to just sit in front of the tv and control the viewing with the included remote control.
