I was confused by the very mixed reviews on Amazon.com (love it!/hate it!) but decided to take a chance because it looked like exactly what I wanted at a very good price...and it qualified for free shipping! Well...I'm delighted! It seems sturdy enough, looks smart (I get compliments!) and it's easy to slide the photos in. Granted the photo covers are plastic, not glass, but they have to be to get the neat curved look! And I think the frame is wood, or a good facsimile. It sure does not look cheap and it is just unusual enough to add a nice dimension to a grouping, or even on its own. Try it! I'm glad I did!

I like the shape of the frame and used it to display 4 x 6 pictures going up a stairway. i have 3 grandchildren and used 3 of these frames one for each child and every who has visited comments on the idea. Definitely will need to purchase more.

I was not thrilled when I received this product. I expected that my photos would lay flat and be firmly inside of a frame. However, this is an outisde frame, with grooves where you slide your photos in between a piece of plastic. The photo is exposed at the edges where it is not slotted into the black plastic frame. This looks like something you would expect to see in a college dorm, or one of the cheap frames from Ikea. I am much happier with the Melannco frames that I ordered and am debating returning this one. Search for the comparably priced Melannco 10 opening frame this is also eligible for free super saver shipping (or free prime shipping if you're a prime member), and I think you'll be much happier.

This frame is very cheaply made and flimsy. Mine came with one of the black pieces of wood broken, but still in place. Looks good, but not very well made.
It definitely displays the 9 pictures as it should but for this price, it could be a lot larger and a lot sturdier,,EXPECT complete Plastic when you buy this... from the black outer frames to the plastic that covers your photos.PLASTIC! The shape is nice and thats why I purchased it but make sure its not the only thing on your wall as it gets lost.. being so small. Its fine tho, just overpriced for its quality.
This picture frame is one of three different ones I bought. It one looks like a great idea, but the outside bars that hold the curved plastic in place over the photographs fall off (three times, different bars) and unbalance the entire frame so that it falls off the wall. Each time it falls, the wall sustains a gouge or two. Impractical and poorly manufactured.
I bought three and displayed one vertically between two horizontal frames. The photos are only secured at the top and bottom (or left and right) and are secured with plastic since they don't sit flat. I have plenty to look at in my room but these frames get all the attention from my friends and family! I tried putting the frame up with the 3M stickers and they didn't work. Definitely need to put nails in the wall.
