Summary: This is my first venture into the digital picture frame experience; I bought it used so got a good deal (they tend to be very pricey). The manuals were not very useful, but after some trial and error experimenting I figured out how to upload photos from a USB drive. The remote battery was dead but worked after getting a new one.
Summary: I was almost put off buying this because of people saying it was difficult to use especially over wi-fi. Firstly let me establish the fact that I'm not very computer literate and have had all sorts of problems setting up wireless products in the past, but setting up and using this frame was really, really easy.
lightning delivery, simple and quick to set up - quite impressed!

Summary: I had this thing opened and set up on my wireless network to shared photo / video / music folders within fifteen minutes. All pretty straightforward I thought. The internal speakers are naturally pretty small and weedy, but it does have a headphone output (minijack) which I used to plug into some better speakers and was able to stream music files from my hard drive wirelessly too (at the same time as pulling images wirelessly) ..
Summary: As others have commented this could have been a world class product if Kodak had taken more time with the firmware. It lacks two major features - random play of photos and auto resume at switch on. The Wi-Fi is easy to set up but drop outs are frequent. This results in the frame re-starting and, if you are using it to stream photos via Wi-Fi, it will sit at the opening menu until you use the remote to navigate back to 'play slide show' (8 button presses!).
Summary: The picture quality of this product is OK but the software is staggeringly poor- there is no option to play photos at random or to resume where you last were. The result is that it insists on starting with the same photo in a slide show and then following the same order every time- unless you have it running 24 hours, you'll never get to the last photos in the list. For me these faults mean it's not really worth having.
Summary: I can't speak for others trying to use this with their PC/MAC and having problems related to using their computer - if you simply copy the photos you want to a memory card using a card reader (I resize mine first to 800x480 which can be done using most photo-editing software) then the pictures display faultlessly. The picture quality is superb with great clarity and vibrant colours and this is backed up by other reviews online.
