Summary: This product works pretty well except for the fact that any photo I try to upload, it complains that it's 'bad'. After scorging the net, I found that if I bring it in to Photoshop and Save for Web, then it all works fine....but what if I didn't have Photoshop? That single issue is enough for me to only give this 2 stars. After all, for those non-graphically inclined, it would render the product useless.
Summary: Odd, Kodak has been doing this for years, and this is not what people want. The frame is maaassive, and the pictures therefore look small. It's slow to power on, no picture shuffle, no picture/video hybrid playback, poor wireless quality... In short, not living up to it's purported operation or quality. C'mon Kodak!
Summary: The concept of a wireless photo frame (EX811) has the potential to simplify the process of refreshing the pictures on a photo frame. Most people already upload pictures from a digital camera onto a computer. What if you could simply drag the pictures into a folder on your computer where the frame is "watching" via WiFi. Nice!! No fumbling with memory cards and waiting for the files to transfer. So what's the problem?
Summary: I bought this for my wife for her birthday. My experience has been mixed. The image quality is decent, but it has a number of features which photo enthusiasts will find wanting: 1) There is no way to view photos randomly. It steps through them in filename order. 2) It has a 16x9 aspect ratio, but most cameras are in 4x3 so your images are always cropped.
Pros: Image Quality, Wireless
Cons: 16x9 widescreen, No Random Ordering, Requires WMP 11
Does not work as promised, little technical support and almost no instructions

Summary: I purchased this product because I believed it would be easy to use. One of my criteria is finding updated firmware in under five minutes. Kodak's website seemed quick and easy to use and I liked that. After having recieved the picture frame I figured I would set it up connect to Windows XP's Windows Media Player as is listed in the products features. I was able to get it to connect to my wireless network fairly easily but it refuses to see the computer.
Summary: I bought this as a gift for the grandparents. Loaded about 800 pictures on an SD card and turned it on. The image is very nice. But I noticed that the first picture displayed was the first I added to the card. Hmm. Turned it off, then back on. Same thing. Then I looked at the manual (which is inside the box, obviously) where it says that pictures are displayed in the order added. Very bad!
Summary: I just bought/received two of these and I've been trying to set one up for three hours now. Seems, although the pictures I've copied to an SD card are in JPEG format, this frame won't acknowledge the pictures I've taken w/my Canon and other digital cameras. Went to software to see if I needed to Sync it and the software doesnt recognize/acknowledge the frame (only cameras). Also, cant get Kodak picture transfer software to work to transfer files via computer/USB.
Summary: This works but * The picture and the frame itself has a bright/glossy finish, which looks like a computer LCD screen rather than a traditional picture. A matte finish is my personal preference. To be clear, the inner frame that directly borders the LCD is very shinny. * Wireless works but requires too much manual navigation to get it to start the slide show.
