Pros: Works with Windows 10
Connects to the wi-fi easily
Cons: None that I can see so far.
Other Thoughts: My laptop's original wi-fi adapter would not connect to wi-fi at the radio studio after upgrading to Windows 10.
I spent several months trying to remedy the situation. Re-installing the original card using Windows 8 drivers in compatibility mode seemed to work except that Windows would update the driver to to the one for Windows 10 without my knowledge and knock me offline. After several months of this headache I finally decided to get a new wireless adapter. I had considered a USB dongle but, I already use the three USB ports on my laptop for the radio show. This was the only card I found that specifically said it worked with Windows 10 and had a user review also stating the same. Windows automatically installed the card with the Windows driver but, I decided to update the driver using the included disc. Not only does this card work as expected, it sees more "available" connections in the building than my old card. I just wish I had found this card sooner,
Pros: Nice picture with a bright display. Easy to use.
Cons: The remote could be a bit larger. There is no way to change the orientation of photos that display in the wrong direction (I am speaking of files where the photo is turned on end to begin with). It could use some more editing options on the picture frame itself in case the photo comes out different on the frame than on your computer screen. The pre-loaded sample pictures must be manually removed while the frame is connected to your computer otherwise they will be part of the slide show with your own pictures. Needs a better stand/support.
Other Thoughts: I bought this as a Christmas gift for my brother so he could have photos of his grand kids on display. I had a hard time finding a frame in the 10-inch category that wasn't overly pricey or that had bad user reviews.
While I was unable to find all that many reviews for this frame those I did find were generally positive. That combined with the fact that my computer monitor is a Viewsonic had me feeling this would likely be a good purchase.
I had bought my parents a 10-inch digital frame from Brookstone a year or so back. While the Brookstone frame is nice this Viewsonic is far better when it comes to image quality. The Brookstoone frame is best when viewed directly. The Viewsonic is fairly clear even when viewed at an angle. There are some photos that do not show on the frame. I am assuming that the files are damaged. It would be nice if there were an option to delete such files within the picture frame's menu. However. the only way to delete pictures is by having the frame connected to your computer. The issue with that is the pictures do not show as damaged or unable to be seen when viewing them on the computer (in this case the computer sees the picture frame as an external drive).
I have not had much experience using this frame (it arrived 6 days ago but I only now decided to put photos on it to have them pre-loaded for my brother on Christmas). However, I would definitely recommend this frame. Especially if you can get it on sale for around $70.
I should mention that the screen dimensions are not quite like that of an 8X10 or 5X7. The display is a bit narrow compared to typical photo configurations (if you were to compare it to an 8x10 the screen would be more like 7x10 or even 6 and a half x 10.
