    Go elsewhere and don't waste your money

    By Jeffrey D. Urbach

    Comments about Impecca 17" Digital Picture Frame:

    It looked great on the BH website. I'm still looking for my receipt, but, it's no more than 2 or so years old and I'm now experiencing my failure. Impecca replaced it once- after 4 months of ignoring me- and last week the frame started acting up again. The remote has never worked properly and once again the new one has failed. (yes, it's a fresh battery). I just ordered 2 new frames for home and office, but, NOT theirs. Send them back to France .

    I bought this for my married daughter. In no time she had it up and running with pictures of the grandkids. The color and details are crisp and bright.

        Comments about Impecca 17" Digital Picture Frame:

        I bought this Impecca Digital picture frame as a gift for my parents' 50th Wedding Anniversary. Unfortunately, shortly after their 51st Anniversary the picture frame stopped working.The frame was barely out of warranty but Impecca wanted another $ to replace it, saying that the frame was not repairable. I was not about to pour more good money into what was an obviously a defective product.I have checked reviews online and it seems that other people have had this same problem where their Impecca Digital picture frame stopped working shortly out of warranty. I only wish I had read these reviews before I bought the Impecca picture frame. The frame was an expensive item and I had thought I was buying a quality product, but as my experience and that of others shows, that is not the case.The Impecca Digital picture frame turned out to be an impeccable waste of money. Don't make the same mistake and stay away from the Impecca brand.

          Comments about Impecca 17" Digital Picture Frame:

          I bought this as a going away gift. It was well-received, though I'm not sure I'd want to own one myself. Very bulky and limited viewing angle. Screen bigger than most laptop monitors is a great thing though. Would also prefer something that had a battery and was motion-activated.

          I bought this for home use but it hung up on pictures badly. I emailed the company and they did not respond for two weeks. By that time I have already sent it back. The email simply said they had a fix for that and to log onto their website :(

            Largest frame I could find in 4x3 format - very clear and bright picture - easy to see from across the room. I use Flash drives to store and display pictures - very easy. Highly recommend.

              After torturing myself thinking I must be stupid , BH was nice enuf to call the manufacturer directly while i was on hold , and confirmed that the advertised features AND the instructions were wrong.

              Goofy inelegant way around device leaving much to be desired.

              Only good point is the picture is beautiful, but, what's the use when you can't get the frame to do some not unreasonable chores.

              Should have returned...sorry I bought it. One star for the picture res. no stars for being a user unfriendly device.

              Comments about Impecca 17" Digital Picture Frame:

              I did NOT find that it had a CF (CompactFlash) card slot as advertised . I had to transfer (load)to a SD card with my files.
              It displayed my JPEGs very well.
              It played my MP3s very well.
              Needs more AND smoother transistions.
              The transistions were VERY basic and a little kludgy. I want to contribute this to matching the transistion code so as to not to overwhelm the limited processor inside.

              I am going to try to create a MPEG slideshow with PhotoDex ProShow's transistions built into the file. It may still not have the horse-power to display the transistions inside the MPEG file somoothly, it is just a digital frame. I will update you when I have those results. As you saw I still gave it 4 Stars. I am not unhappy, just always wanting more and what is advertised.
