Summary: It is pretty easy to use. Works great with a thumb drive but the internal memory is a dud... I am a painter and I will use it as a rolling archive for press, awards and corporate pics and odd pics of painting locations and for that it will work great. We will place it on the bar during the art show "Gita Lloyd, Living Room, A Decade of Painting in Kern County". I think this will be FAR more fun than a book laying around on a table.
Summary: I bought a Sony Picture frame last year before Christmas and ordered this one for a family member. Although Sony comes with a more attractive design but Kodak has a larger and better display, neat wireless system, stereo sound and shows almost all common image files with reasonable price. It would definitely shined more if designed with the capability of visual effect, calendar and clock.
Great picture quality, but you may get "current file is bad" on picture frame

Summary: The picture quality is probably one of the best I've seen but...... There's only one problem that I have had with the Kodak SV 811. If your files are too large, i.e. 3MB+ photos you may receive the following error message "Current file is bad" on the picture frame. To resolve this problem do the following and it will correct the problem: resize your photos to 1600 X 1200 dpi(landscape mode), (1200X 1600 for portrait mode) and the frame will work fine....
Summary: Hubby said this was very easy to use. Frame looks nice. The only comment he had about it was that random sorting would be nice. He has this in his office and enjoys seeing all his loved ones at work.
Summary: I bought this for my wife's parents who are allergic to technology. They live in another state so we thought a digital frame might work nicely. This Kodak EX-811 seemed like a good deal. Other frames I've seen have monthly fees and that was a no go. I was a little weary of it based on other reviews. I tested it out at my house on my network and the setup was relatively easy. At first it didn't recognize my router. Turning the frame on and off fixed this.
Summary: I bought this frame for my mother-in-law to have with her so we could push photos of my daughter to her. This is done over the wi-fi, as kodak lets the frame pull photos from an online gallery that we can upload pictures to. Note however that I have seen this frame freeze up (just while being on and doing its thing), and thus needing a power-off-power-on cycle (no need to unplug, as there is a switch). For the price, feature packed!
Summary: My brother and I purchased this digital frame for our parents as a gift. It displays great images and my dad has had a lot of fun playing with it while my mom has enjoyed looking at all the pictures it will hold. The only negative was that it was kind of complicated to get images on it through the wireless (memory chip worked great!) but it's likely that it was an issue with the router/network rather than the frame. It's a great product and I don't regret purchasing it!
Summary: My husband and I bought this for his mother. It was easy to use and looked great. I'd been reading reviews and specs for many frames, and didn't find one in our price range (under $200) that had everything we wanted (good resolution, remote, black or wood frame (not white), picture cycling times including longer cycles of >5 minutes, etc.).
Summary: Great product! Excellent picture quality! Many nice features! However, the quality of pictures pulled over wifi from the Kodak Gallery is something to be desired. This is a result of settings on Kodak Gallery, not the frame. I don't regret the purchase, but did anticipate equal picture quality from all sources.
