Don't buy this if you want a feature rich device, cause it ain't it. It is good for viewing photos in the field for content, definately not for quality. You would not use this device to pre-view photos with a client.

Cheaply Constructed

Comments about Smartparts 7.0-inch Portable Video and Picture Player Frame - Includes OptiPix Software Download:

I bought this frame to display my xD digital card photos but half won't show up. There is no in depth instruction booklet so most of the features are hidden and difficult to locate. Picture screen is dark but I was able to lighten it a bit. [...]Don't waste your money on this poorly made product. It's a rip off. I wish I could return it for my money back.

Excellent value for the $

Comments about Smartparts 7.0-inch Portable Video and Picture Player Frame - Includes OptiPix Software Download:

As long as you treat this unit delicately, it should deliver long-term service. But it is delicate.

Menus are clunky, but they work. Believe it or not, it's easiest to use with the included wireless keychain capable remote. NOTE: you can only control the unit playback volume with the remote.

I bought this primarily because it's the only low-priced display that accepts the XD media card. Second most important reason: portability (runs on AA batteries!).

It even has built-in stereo speakers that sound ok if you're playing music.

This is a great unit to use in the field if you want an inexpensive way to view your shots with a display larger than the one provided on the back of your camera.

True, the display resolution could be better. And, yes, the video out doesn't work (but that's not why I bought it). But, heck, if you save a movie as an .avi or .mpg and bring a set of headphones you can use this as your movie player on an airplane, etc.

Overall, you just can't get this many features for the $ without spending at least twice as much for another product.

Not bad, as long as yo don't want TV out
By Todd from Michigan on 6/28/2007
Pros:
Features
Cons:
TV output doen't work
Describe Yourself:
Hobbyist/Enthusiast

Comments about Smartparts 7.0-inch Portable Video and Picture Player Frame - Includes OptiPix Software Download:

The unit works fine as long as you don't want TV output (which is one of the reasons I bought it for). When I tried TV output I could see that there was a some sort of signal but thats about all. I tried this on multiple TVs at different locations and with 2 video players bought about a month apart. Same results. When calling the manufacturer, the first call they said they knew about the problem and were trying to fix it, but when I called back later they basically tryed to say that there was no problem and asked who I talked to the first time (almost sounded like a coverup to me).

Comments about Smartparts 7.0-inch Portable Video and Picture Player Frame - Includes OptiPix Software Download:

In order to obtain a satisfactory display, I had to significantly adjust the brightness, contrast and color from the factory settings. However, once adjusted the pictures displayed on the frame look good. The frame is easy to use and has multiple ways to add digital content. The frame has lots of features and represents a very good value.
