Summary: Had this product for a couple of years now and had no problem. Good picture. Touch interface is nice. USB 1.1 is slow, so avoid using USB feature with their software. Recommend SD card instead. I discovered they had a firmware upgrade on their website and decided to download for it promised better performance and updates the interface. What it ended up doing is killing my frame and now doesn't work.
Great picture quality, controls not so user-friendly

Summary: I think this frame was designed for people who take pictures in landscape mode and just pop the card into the frame. However, I take ballroom dancing photos, mostly in portrait mode and have to post-process most of them because of the bad lighting in most dance venues. I post the photos on the Internet, but our organization thought the digital frame would be nice for displaying the photos at our dances, as well.
Summary: When I first purchased the Kodak Easy Share M1020 Digital Picture Frame, I loved it. Bright, sharp picture, easy to use interface. Since then I've come to like it less and less. The reasons? The frame offers a feature called Shuffle, supposedly selecting pictures and displaying them in random order. I have over 2,000 photos on my SSD card and I noticed that I was seeing the same photos over and over and other photos I was never seeing.
Summary: The quality of the pictures was terrific. This frame is also very easy to use. I do agree with another reviewer that the user guide leaves much to be desired. I ended up returning my frame because of one issue that is a big deal to me. I absolutely have to have a frame that can show pictures in a random order. This frame claims that when shuffle is on that is what it is suppose to do but it does not work.
Excerpt: When I got married I had a mountain of presents to sort through and one of them was this lovely digital photo frame. My best friends had clubbed together to buy the frame and had uploaded all the pictures from my hen do and night out before the big day. It was a lovely gift and was the first digital photograph frame that I ever owned so it was a bit of a novelty. HOW MUCH IS IT? The frame cost £95 pounds so it was a very lavish present for my friends to buy.
Excerpt: What Is It? The Kodak Easyshare Digital Photo frame (M1020) is one of the newest inventions for people to be able to watch all their favourite photos, in a slideshow on a photo frame. This allows you to be able to look at your digital photos, without the need of a bulky computer. Also you are able to look over at the photo frame, and it will change again, and again, and again.
Pros: Great Idea, Excellent Screen, Fun
Cons: Had to buy a memory card for it/ Poor memory capacity
