    Seems like this is about the cheapest one you can get and still get decent quality. I had bought another one for $25 downtown, but it was virtually junk, terrible picture quality and I returned it - the only good thing about that one was that you could set it for any timed interval, whereas for this one you're limited to 15, 30, 45 second intervals, then minutes, etc. Got it for my mom (of course) and hope the parents are able to actually plug it in and use it. NIce picture quality, though it doesn't seem possible to vary the order of play; they will play in the order you load them. Okay for the parents' use. Quite easy to make it play; loading pics onto the SD card might be a bit involved for minimal PC users, but easy for most. (For Mac I had to drag pics into the SD card as it appears in the finder window.) You can choose the type of transition or just choose "close" so it just closes one picture and opens the next, rather than fancy effects, which are nice too. And it seems that you can set it to power up in the morning, then shut down at night. I set it for that but didn't get much more time to see it in action over days, as I had to send it off for xmas. Hope they like it. The siblings can add their pics when they visit, by using their PC to add to the card. Oh yeah, can also use a flash drive; I didn't try that.

    I was looking for a simple frame which can show photos well. Although it does that, there're few major drawbacks...
    Being able to display only JPGs, it doesn't support Progressive JPG format. Besides that an image is blurry for 1-2 seconds after it was shown and for 1 second before the next image. It looks like the frame is trying to do so processing even when I prepared pictures in 800x600 to fit its resolution. This is very noticeable on high-quality sharp pictures when 5 second delay is used. It works like this -- blurry image for 1 second, sharp for 3 seconds, blurry again for 1 second. This looks really bad.

    My other complain is even though power supply supports 110/220 AC circuits, it's not mentioned anywhere online, even in PDF manual on the manufacturer website.

        Picture clarity is horrible. If you are more than 5 feet from the device, the picture is distorted. Must be eye level with device. It has a minimal viewing angle.

        I am a wedding and event photographer. I use it to display select images at my events and wedding ceremonies. It has received lots of review by persons attending these events. The bride and groom were very happy to see some of their images almost immediately as the ceremony unfolded. Its pricing makes it affordable and size makes it easy to setup. Although the body is solid, the screw on stand is delicate and broke off upon my second use.

        Comments about Aluratek ADPF08SF 8-Inch Digital Photo Frame (Matte Black):

        I purchased two of these as gifts setting one up for my mom with images loaded on a USB memory stick. The controls on back were difficult to navigate as I could not see them while manipulating the settings. I found switching back and forth between settings less than satisfactory. The image adjustment such as contrast, brightness and saturation were not effective resulting in ugly strange looking images. I restored the defaults which are pretty good as is. Most of my images are shot on a good camera and I can process them in photoshop prior to loading on the frame so that should be OK but better results for the tools would be desired. Overall the appearance of the frame and the photo viewer are just OK.

            Pretty easy to set up, good size to view photos. I think it was a returned item as the directions said to remove the film covering the viewing area but there was no film on it. Also, photos look best viewed straight on. Looses quality viewed from the side.

            Comments about Aluratek ADPF08SF 8-Inch Digital Photo Frame (Matte Black):

            For some inconceivable reason the designers of this frame thought it would be a good idea to have an icon pop up indicating the image is about to change. This serves no purpose and is extremely annoying when what you want to see are your pictures changing, not their icon popping up again and again.
            The "menu" button doesn't respond immediately; instead there's an annoying long wait, and when you finally get to the menu it's not intuitive how to change the settings, and it's poorly explained in the instructions.

                        Bought this for my 85 yr old father and loaded it full of family photos. The menu is easy to navigate, and--key for me--once a memory card is in the frame, as soon as you turn it on, the slideshow starts (exactly what I wanted, didn't want my father to have to work with the menu). The clarity and resolution are very good. There are various speeds for the slideshow (I might wish there were a few more options there, but that's quibbling really) and the transitions are interesting. I am disappointed that slideshow isn't random but alphabetical only, and there doesn't seem to be a way to change that. But this was very reasonably priced and it's a solid product. I'm quite happy.

                        I purchased the first LED picture frame for my wife for Christmas to display photos of our first two grand daughters. The first unit arrived in time for Christmas but when I checked the display just before wrapping it, I found that it rattled and the display was dislodged. After an RMA for a replacement, the second unit arrived about the end of the first week of Jan. When checking this unit, it rattled and the display floated in the plastic bezel. After positioning the display so it was centralised in the plastic bezel, I powered it up but just a blank white display appeared and none of the controls or menu worked. I sent it back for credit to buy a decent LED display. B & H responded properly with the returns, except UPS ground return is a slow process. I have bought many other products with no problems so I can only assume the problem is the LED display or its inability to withstand UPS shipping.

                          Not what I was expecting

                                Overview says, "The ADPF08SF will fit into most any decor with its high-quality gloss black frame." when in fact it is a cheap looking plastic frame with a matte finish. I bought 3 of these in December, 2012 from B&H and all three have the same frame finish. I notified B&H about this so it might change in the description in the future. Also, one that I received has a calendar/clock with auto turn-on, turn-off feature. The other 2 do not. Same model number ADPF08SF on all 3, same box, same looking unit. Some of the reviews referred to this feature (auto turn on/off) which is why I purchased this brand/model. The version number on the one with auto turn on/off is 20111212-1. The other two that don't have this feature display version # 20120319-1. Just a guess, but maybe the one with the feature is an older model and they did away with this on current models. That means the display is on all the time unless you turn it off by holding the power button on the back for a couple of seconds. On the one with the auto turn on/off, it seemed to work OK in my 2 day test before I wrapped it up as a Christmas present. You can choose to have the turn-on time every day of the week, just week days or just week ends or just once. I have a Pandigital 8" model that will allow you to set different times for week days and weekends which works nice at home when you work during the day & have it turn on when you come home and then be on all day during the weekends. I tried to buy 3 of these but Pandigital has been liquidated from what I read and it was hard finding 3 of their units. You can also, for the one with the calendar, display the photos in a slide show, or display the calendar by month with a slide show next to it and the time below the photos. This would be nice for a desk display but it does default to the large slide show when the unit is turned off so you have to select calendar display each time it is turned on.

                                For the record, at least for the 3 that I have, there is no internal memory which wasn't a problem for me because I intended to use an SD card. By the way, it wasn't clear to me whether or not an SDHC card would work or not so I purchased class two SD cards. The outer box does say SD/SDHC as does the slot on the back of the unit so that could make loading pictures for display quicker. When set to 5 seconds, it takes about 8-9 seconds for the next picture to display with my standard SD cards. As other reviewers have mentioned, the picture comes on slightly out of focus for about a second and a half and then gets out of focus again before it is replaced with the next picture.

                                I bought 2GB SD cards and was able to load over 600 pictures on each of them. At first with just dragging and dropping or "Send To" on my PC I was only able to get a little over 400 on them even thought it showed the card as only being a little over half full. Most photos were straight out of the camera (10 mega pixel JPEG's) plus a few that had been emailed to me at a lower resolution and some that I had tweaked and resaved which usually makes a larger file when I do it. At any rate, I tried downsizing the large photos to 800 x 600 and it made it worse. I could only get about 150 photos on a card and the card still showed only about half full. Then I found if I formatted the card for FAT 32 instead of just FAT, I was able to drop all 600+ photos on the card. I did resize the larger ones to 1600 x 1200 and the whole show takes 1.02 GB of the 2GB card. I did this thinking it would make loading faster but the load time didn't change per picture.

                                To sum it up, if you are not expecting a whole lot, these frames are pretty cheap and display a nice bright photo. Maybe I got the last old model with auto on/off so don't be looking for that nice feature on newer ones. My Pandigital frame has a nice wood frame with white matting around the photo and doesn't display any out of focus during the presentation. It also has one very desirable feature that these Aluratek frames do not have. The ability to display photos in a random order! I had to sort my photo by size which sort of randomized them as no two photos seem to be the same. Then I did a batch rename of the files from 001 onward before loading them on the card. This sort of mixed things up a bit and worked fairly well. If you want thing to appear in chronological order you won't miss this feature.

                                    This was purchased as a gift for my mother. Arrived timely. With the pictures on an SD card, very easy to load from my laptop. My only suggestion would be for more variability in the slideshow timing. This should make a great Christmas present.

                                    I got this as a gift for a family member. They really like it and it's a rather good choice for a gift because of its elegance. It has a good picture quality and has multiple inputs for different methods of display. I don't know how long the battery would last but it's a very interesting article on a coffee table or on the wall.

                                    The only thing that I see that would make this inferior to competition is its thickness. it is about 1 to 2 inches thick which really makes it stand out next to other old fashioned picture frames, in a bad way.

                                          after a good bit of research I decided on this frame for my mom. I have to say I wasn't dissapppointed in the least. the picture is clean and sharp and this is probably the best digital frame you can get for the fantastic price. can't find a thing wrong with it.

                                                I purchased this to make an elderly relative's digital photographs from his entire life accessible. He fell in love with it. With incipient Alzhiemer's this is a great memory jogger for him. Am thinking of getting one for all our digital files.

                                                My only suggested improvement would be to have a random choice to show the photos, they always show in the same order through and start over from scratch if the machine is turned off.

                                                    First, 8" is a very good size for a photo frame that will stay on a mantle, desk, nightstand, dresser etc. This particular frame can be stood up portrait or landscape, and features a nice random dissolve feature between photos.

                                                    The two things that differentiated this frame to me vs. the others was its very nicely designed exterior. And support of external memory rather than having a limited and more difficult to deal with built-in harddrive.
