Summary: I purchased the DSM-210 a little over a year ago. It worked pretty well and had some nice features. Recently the FrameChannel service was shut down- so now this is basically a large digital picture frame as all of the online features went through FrameChannel.
Summary: Works as advertised. The remote went south soon after purchase and within the warranty period. Initially D-Link refused to replace it, saying "accessories are not covered by the warranty." Eventually with a lot of hassle they gave in. The experience did not give me a warm feeling towards D-Link.
Summary: From the product description: "......view all your favorite photos in resolutions up to 10-Megapixel". Yeah right! The wording is obvious that whoever designed this frame targeted it to retarded people who is completely digital illiterate.
Summary: I bought this despite the poor reviews because it was the only frame that had all the features I wanted. I am an idiot. Full disclosure: there were so many product and documentation flaws I never got to test all the features so this review is limited to the initial use. 1) Remote control from hell.
Summary: D-link is known for their terrible QA department, and this frame is not an exception. Had to RMA the first one I got (not from Amazon), it kept rebooting. The second one works great. Frame is thin enough to be hung on the wall, very light, the screen is large and bright.
Can it be any easier???? (Yes just a bit, but still a great gift)

Summary: EDITED: OK, I have to amend my review below. There is a MAJOR software omission that I hope they fix with a firmware update. The unit does not remember your settings for the source of your pictures if you loose power or turn it off manually.
Summary: I also got a Dead-On-Arrival unit. Either the remote is broken or the receiver in the frame is broken - the unit just won't respond to the remote. You can't set up any connectivity without the remote.
Summary: I purchased two of these units. I'm guessing they shipped right from D-Link as they actually had sequential serial numbers. Both units would not respond to the remote and one flickered excessively. The frames look sharp.
Summary: I would like to say that I was able to test everything this picture frame did before I had to send it back for a refund. However, the remote control hardly worked at all and when it did the signal was so weak that I had to stand a few feet from it to get it to work.
Summary: Short review: Best currently on the market (11/2009), I own 2 and am buying more for friends and family. The people with the negative reviews of this product are wonky or worse. Long Review: Let me start of by saying that I'm a photo hobbyist.
