Summary: We got this digital frame to replace a smaller 4-year-old model which had quit working. Thinking that the technology must have improved over the past four years we elected to purchase the Kodak 10 inch model rather than to repair our old digital frame of a different brand. The new frame proved difficult to program. Random shuffle was never random, and it displayed the same photos in the same progression every cycle and didn't display others at all.
Summary: I ordered this to make a slide show of family pictures for my mother. It said it would display 4000 photos at 800 pixel resolution. I made up a 400 picture slide show using Adobe Photo Elements that had music and the pictures faded in and out. I tried to run it but found that the software was unsupported by the frame. I went to the Kodak site of FAQ only to find that the software they provided with the frame was also incompatable with their own frame!!
Clunky interface, shuffle feature not working, more...

Summary: So using amazons ratings as a good starting point for purchasing this frame i picked it up. I soon realized once open that the internal 128MB was worthless. I purchased (2) 4GB USB sticks to make compatibility as easy as possible for this was a gift for my 65 year old mother. I found the TOUCH interface clunky. I dread having to explain how this functions to my Mother after she receives it on the holiday.
Summary: The touch screen was difficult to use. It kept freezing up on me and I'd have to turn it off and on again. Other times, I'd press the border in order to select a certain touch screen option and the option next to it would be selected instead. And it's not like I have long fingernails or Parkinson's. I am a healthy young man who knows how to use a touch screen. Very frustrating. The frame is nice, well constructed and the pictures were digital great quality.
Summary: This is very fussy about video codecs and refuses to play Mov and MPEG4 files, which the box says it will play. Kodak are very coy about exactly what it will play, which is frustrating as I can export to anything, but I need to know what. Update: After another day of messing about and downloading the latest firmware I have established that it doesn't have enough processing power to play full screen video.
