4 out of 5 eggsImpressed

Pros: Nice looking frame. Great picture. Fairly easy to use. Cheap.

Cons: Sound quality of the built in speaker isn't great but I didn't really expect it to be. An audio out would be nice though. Built in memory would be nice as well. Even if it's just a few megs for a handfull of favorite pics.

Other Thoughts: Bought as a gift and just opened it to test it out. So impressed I bought another for a gift for someone else. Now that these are sold out I think I might buy a couple more of the white version while they're still on sale.

4 out of 5 eggsMinor limitations but not shabby

Pros: The relative virtue of the VFM823-50 for quasi-continuous operation is that it draws only 5 watts; half the power consumed by many comparably sized netbooks/tablets. The screen's 4:3 aspect ratio enables acceptable display of either/both landscape and portrait images; less well accomplished on fashionable widescreens. Thus far my sample has been pixel-defect free. The unit has no internal image memory, but offers both an SD card slot and a flashdrive/USB port that can be employed quasi-concurrently. In my limited experience, each port appears hot swappable and not fussy re memory device characteristics. Nor do JPEGs require pre-formatting to meet specific, narrow size/resolution criteria. The fast/slow slide-show timing range choices cover only circa 6-12 seconds; BUT, alternatively, the interval can be set to any desired longer interval.

Cons: Clearly, to achieve its consumer product category raison d'être, a digital picture frame should be: 1) slim and attractive itself, 2) auto-scale and display JPEGs at good quality, 3) run reliably for years, 4) consume substantially less electrical power than a netbook or tablet, and 5) sell for a fraction of a netbook or tablet's retail cost-- else, what would be the point of buying a limited purpose digital-electronic photo frame?

Despite relative under-performance in some respects, and of course having a prospectively indeterminate service-life-- at less than $50 discount retail, the Viewsonic VFM823-50 does an admirable job of meeting the above criteria. Its 800x600 pixel TFT 8" 4:3 aspect screen isn't large, but offers adequate resolution with acceptably balanced color and viewing angles; though less vivid, and lacking the range of adjustment possible using familiar photo-viewing "slide show" software such as Picasa, running on a PC screen.

Other Thoughts: Although heretofore an uncommon photo-frame feature, the unit can also display suitably coded video (including MPEG2 and MPEG4 simple-profile, though not higher resolution H.264) accompanied by properly in-synch monaural audio through its tiny internal speaker. Unfortunately the frame lacks an audio-out jack/option, as would be useful to drive better quality (powered) external speakers or a HiFi.

It does include a very attractive clock-calendar display mode, though JPEGs are then trimmed to about quarter-screen size; and there is no option to generate a realtime clock/date corner or screen-edge overlay on full screen JPEGs. Not to quibble further, in clock/calendar mode, June is spelled Jnue; but Viewsonic has 6 months to issue a flash update, if possible. (A firmware upgrade capability is mentioned, but Viewsonic's website currently has no code for the purpose that I've found.)

For what it is, and at NewEgg's retail price-- I'm impressed.
