    Inexpensive doesn't mean cheap. I use these frames for my B&W photos printed on 8 1/2 x 11 photo paper. No trimming or mounting needed. Simply pop the glass out from the front, insert a print, pop the glass back in and hang it on the wall.

    I generally print 5 x 7 with a nice border and the print looks like it's been matted. The frames have a knife edge that compliments photos nicely.

    Been using these for years and never had a problem. Highly recommended.

    We intended to use this product to display flyers on outreach tables at community events. It is nice-enough looking, but very simple. The way it loads is odd (the glass snaps out of the frame), and I'm not sure it will last through changing the contents very many times, but we'll see. The stand is flimsy, so not an ideal table top frame. We're using it on a table top easel instead. Overall, it's about what you'd expect for being so inexpensive.

    We use these frames (buy a lot of them) for certificates. Best we have ever found. We used to buy these from another vendor and for years now we only buy from B&H - Can't beat the service and fair price for these frames!

      PURCHASED 10 OF THESE ALONG WITH SMALLER 5X7 AND 4X6 FRAMES.
      ALL SHIPPED AND BOXED TOGETHER. WHEN I OPENED THE 8.5X11 FRAMES, FOUND THAT GLASS SHATTERED EASILY WHEN ATTEMPTING TO SQUEEZE THE SIDES TO OPEN THE FRAME.
      GLASS WENT EVERYWHERE IN SMALL PIECES.
      CUT ME HAND.
      DO NOT BUY THE 8.5X11. SMALLER SIZES ARE OK BECAUSE THEY ARE MADE OF CLEAR PLASTIC

      Comments about MCS Format Frame (8.5 x 11", Black):

      I have been buying FORMAT frames for a few years. I like them very much, and they are the right price. I am using these frames for photos I print out on my printer at home. I use Canon Glossy II paper. Either the frames are very slightly too small or the paper slightly too large, but I have found that I have to trim the photos so that they can fit in the frame. I use a paper cutter so the job comes out fine, but there is this very small discrepancy in size which necessitates trimming the photo so that it will lie flat in the frame.

                  Product arrived safely, packaged perfectly. It would appear the trick is to order 6 frames, which come packaged from the manufacturer in boxes of 6. Can't really beat the value. My only beef is that I can't just drop in an 8.5 x 11 piece of moab photo paper. I have to trim the paper a bit to fit, which kind of blows. Overall a good deal...

                                    Use slight pressure on the corner. Nothing 'not so great about it'!!!

                                    We intended to use this product to display flyers on outreach tables at community events. It is nice-enough looking, but very simple. The way it loads is odd (the glass snaps out of the frame), and I'm not sure it will last through changing the contents very many times, but we'll see. The stand is flimsy, so not an ideal table top frame. We're using it on a table top easel instead. Overall, it's about what you'd expect for being so inexpensive.

                                      Can't beat the price! A frame for this price with a glass front is rare. The front loading style is great for changing pictures out easily.
