    I have purchased 14 of these frames, four the first time and ten the second. They arrived well packaged but one fell apart when I tried to put insert a picture. The black plastic on one side of the frame just broke off. This was a manufacturing flaw, not damage in transit. They look good when hung on the wall.

    Kind of fragile

          Great price and they mostly look good. One (out of 12) either broke in transit or while I was unwrapping it, so they are pretty fragile. One piece of glass had a small but visible defect.

                This works great for a frame where you want to switch out the pictures easily. The built-in hanger placement hangs the frame vertically or horizontally (level on each). And very well packaged for shipping!

                  This is a hard to find frame size in the front -
                  loading format. Extremely reasonable price. Fast delivery.

                      Comments about MCS Format Frame (8 x 12", Black):

                      This product isn't a 5-star frame when compared with other more expensive frames on the market, but at the B&H price it's a such tremendous value that it deserves 5 stars. What I like about these is:

                      It's easy to load or change the photo through the front of the frame without having to hurt your fingers squeezing those tight clips found on many rear-loading frames.

                      The frame is very thin so it disappears and lets your photo speak for itself.

                      This particular version has a 3:2 aspect ratio so you don't have to crop your DSLR photos.

                      The wall mounting holes are molded into the plastic of the frame so you just stick a nail in the wall, put the frame on it, and it hangs straight with no fussing with clips or wires.

                        My pictures aspect ratio is 1.5, and I don't like cropping them, so this is one of the very few options available - not sure why the odd size is displayed as a con, since to me that's the plus. They're super light, perfect for wall displays. The "glass" quality is not that great, so you gotta give some consideration to where to place them with respect to the lighting so that you can actually see the pictures. I like the simplistic design, it's all about the picture with these. At this price, I have to give them 5 stars.

                        I am from Sask. Canada, and around here, 8 x 12 frames are literally non-existent - and if you do find out, there are about $35+ ! For under a lot cheaper, this was exactly what I was looking for - THANK YOU !!!

                                    Put a photo in this frame with no spacers or matting, so I don't know how well a matted image would fit. Not good for the photo, but it worked well. For the price it's hard to beat, but if you want it done right, go to a professional framer.

                                    Nice frames, poor shipping. Bought three, one was broken along the plastic. Not worth returning.

                                      I use these for photo prints. They are easy to use, light-weight, and the size fits my DSLR format without lots of cropping.

                                        The best part of this frame was the ease in placing the photo in the frame. It uses a pop-out style glass and could not be easier to use. I did not know this at first and puzzled for a moment about how to open. But I read the instructions on the back and it was a literal snap. Excellent packaging insured they arrived crack-free.

                                            Spent quite some time searching for 8x12 frames and came across this site. The shipping was fast, and very cheap. This frame is great when you want only your picture to stand out and don't want to see much frame.

                                            Will definitely buy from this company again for frames that I can't find locally.

                                              There's not a whole lot to say about it. It's a cheap plastic frame with glass front that does what it's supposed to do.

                                                  Great way to display enlargements, keeps focus on photo rather than the frame.
