I saw this item had been awarded 3 x 5 stars & 1 x 4 stars in the reviews here on Amazon (from another seller), and purchased 3 of them on the strength of the reviews. I REALLY wish I HADN'T!!!!
I had hoped to be able to just drag and drop some .jpg's, straight into a picture folder on the device. Instead, all you can do, is use the software that's installed on it, and convert .jpg's to very poor quality .bmp's! Of which I think you can fit 58 .bmp's. In this day and age, where memory really isn't very expensive, I would have thought that 1GB or even just 100MB wouldn't cost the manufacturers too much, but if this can only squeeze some rubbish looking .bmp's on it, the actual memory size must be tiny!
I bought these for my Dad and Grandparents, so I intended to put some pics on for them to start off, but hoped they could do it themselves, when they wanted to change photos. Had it just been 'drag & drop', they could have probably managed it, but I can't see them getting their head around this rubbish software. The instructions look like they came out of a Xmas cracker, and are littered with bad english and punctuation. Lot's of use of the term "longtime", is a giveaway that these items are cheap imports from the Far East.
Also the only way to charge it up (no replacable battery), is through the USB port, which isn't great for my Grandparents who don't own a computer. So I've had to dig out a USB charger, and hope that works for them.
Basically if I'd known this item didn't accept .jpg, I would NOT have bought it. VERY disappointed, especially now I've come back to post this review and found the price has dropped, just 3 weeks later. GRRRRR
Hopefully THIS review will prove useful for others. I know it's not that expensive, but I also know that it's still rubbish, and that you can get far better for your money than this!
