We bought 7 of these as Christmas presents for family in France. We loaded an sd card with all our wedding photos and shipped over for the holidays. Though it required an adaptor to run on European voltage they worked great! Everyone was thrilled and enjoys seeing us flashing by. Very easy to use and very simple to work once loaded. My French in-laws are nearing 80 years of age and they were super thrilled with this gift. It's the next best thing to being there!
