Summary: Never got the wireless function to work very well. Like other reviewers, any little glitch in the wireless signal (and I have a D-link router which frequently drops out), the slideshow stops and you have to manually start everything all over!
Summary: At first glance, the frame is nice looking and rather simple to use. You can play videos and display photos that you download from your camera. However, it randomly turns itself off. And after a few months of use, it has completely broken. Only random (1 of every 20 photos) will play.
Summary: Just a disappointment for ease of use, especially considering it was going to an 85 year old person. It cannot be managed without a remote that is too small for anyone with vision or dexterity issues, and the commands are not intuitive.
Summary: We received this frame (the EX1011) as a gift. It worked fine for a while, but recently it stopped working. It will only stay on for a few seconds, and then it shuts itself off. I contacted Kodak, but they told me it would cost $136 to repair the frame.
Stops working after a time period - much too expensive to have that happen!

Summary: My husband spent over $200 on this frame as a gift for me less than 2 years ago. Unfortunately the warranty is only 1 year. The screen started going black - it will power on but shut off after several seconds. I did the online troubleshooting and also called tech support.
Summary: I have had this frame for about 2 years and have really enjoyed it. The screen resolution and colors look great to me. Yes they are a little over saturated but it doesn't bother me and actually makes the pictures more attractive.
Good quality but wireless functionality disappointing

Summary: I like this Kodak picture frame. I went to a couple of stores and the Kodak has better than average picture quality. It also has way less glare than most others. It hangs on the wall in our living room, and you can see the picture with excellent quality from different angles. The interface is good.
Summary: The EX1011 acceptance of JPEGs are random so you'll spend lots of time discarding JPEGs that won't show and you won't be able to show all the pictures you want. Support - how about chat support that averages five minutes between responses?
Summary: Got them for my parents and for the inlaws. Great picture, easy to use if you use a sd card, hard to use if you are trying to add it to your wireless network. It may be becuase my parents and inlaws have old wireless routers, but I really didnt have time to try to problem solve to make it work.
Summary: Options that need to be in a frame, wireless connectivity to free services. Auto update. It doesn't even need to be real time. A delay is fine. However, it must be able to pick up new pictures to allow it to be a gift to those that are technology challenged.
Pros: The frame has a good picture and is navigable.
Cons: The frame does do wireless to the Kodak Picture Gallery, however, if you update your album online, the frame does not automatically pick it up. You have to use the remote to reselect the Kodak Gallery and the album you want. For a hands-off frame for your in-laws this is not a good option. Frame ...
