Comments about Quantaray 7-Inch Digital Picture Frame (Black Acrylic):

Have tried several cards, photo sequences, even had product replaced, but still freezes on an image interrupting the slide show.

Changing the time interval can only be accomplished right at start up of first picture which was not explained in instructions.

Comments about Quantaray 7-Inch Digital Picture Frame (Black Acrylic):

My wife bought this for me for Christmas and I've just been playing around with it for the first time.

- The buttons are rather annoying, but I didn't have trouble figuring them out like the other reviewer. You just have to push Pause, and then use either Rotate or Mode to set stuff. And you have to be patient... you push a button and then give it a good second or two to realize you just told it to do something.

- When you pause on a picture, there is a blue label "Paused" that stays on the screen and won't go away. It would have been nice to pause and display only one picture, but the bright blue label makes it look stupid. And if you just put one picture on your card, it still does a slide show with that one picture. It cycles between the typical wipe-left/wipe-right/split-horizontal-wipe stuff, and you can't configure this in any way. (At least it doesn't do the diamond-fade, or wave transition, or something.)

- Lastly, this thing loves to distort my pictures, so I tried playing around with my pics cropping them to several different resolutions and they still always look distorted. The specs say the screen resolution is 480 x 234 so you'd think that when I resize and crop a picture to *exactly* that resolution that it would display it at that resolution and fill up the screen. Oh no... you either get widescreen where it's squished vertically and shows "letterbox" black on top and bottom, or you get the correct height, but it crops the left and right sides of the picture off. *Very* annoying.

I suppose I could play around more and find the exact resolution it would play nice with, but my 2048 x 1536 pictures look alright and I'm tired of mucking around with it. I'll just rest easy with my personal knowledge that my baby's head isn't really squished.

Not bad for a cheap(er) model, and it was a gift, so... can't complain too much. But again, caveat emptor.

Comments about Quantaray 7-Inch Digital Picture Frame (Black Acrylic):

Out of the box this was difficult to use. Yes, there are only five buttons, so it would seem that it would be easy, but it was not. We could not change the photo display. All pictures were "stretched" or appeared wide, distorting the subjects in the photos. Each time we truned the digital frame on it would "freeze". Sometimes it went through 4 or 5 photos other times it went through more, but each time it froze before all photos were displayed. I choose the puchase this from [...]because I thought the quality of products would be better. Bottom line is we are returning this. We want a full refund and would not purchase an item from this manufacturer again.

Comments about Quantaray 7-Inch Digital Picture Frame (Black Acrylic):

This is not a product even for those who can program the VCR. There is nothing intuative to the set-up for this item. The user "manual" was a waste of the paper it was printed on. Changing aspect ratio never happened. Crop mode showed up on the display for use but not explained. I would stay away from this one. [...] this produce is a bust.

Comments about Quantaray 7-Inch Digital Picture Frame (Black Acrylic):

We were unable to get it out of 16:9 mode. All of the pictures were stretched horizontally. The book description does not seem to match the 5 buttons on the unit, and two of us tried to figure out how they work, and gave up. We finally compressed all the pictures horizontally to 75% width and put them back on the card, where they displayed nicely. Trying to change the picture display time was very difficult, and seemed to be more a matter of luck than any predictable way of using the buttons.
