Summary: I bought Kodak digital frame for my wife for Mother's Day. First of all I think these digital frames will be found as a free prize in cereal boxes in a year, but anyway...the only reason I would buy one is because I like to make slide shows with Photostory. This model promised to play video in the following formats: MOV, MPEG1, MPEG4, and AVI. Since Photostory can only publish in the WMV format, I had to convert.
Summary: I got this as a Xmas present today. I'm a computer expert. I can't believe how problematic the software is with this frame. The picture quality is actually very good compared to others I've purchased. I like that it takes multiple types of memory cards and it is a very nice looking frame. However, I couldn't get my computer to see the internal or external memory cards no matter what I tried. I finally gave up on it and just downloaded the pictures directly to my SD card.
Summary: I received this digital frame in the mail last week. When I opened it, I noticed it was covered in dust and had several scratches along the side & back. When I flipped it over, I also noticed a "refurbished" sticker on the frame. I DID NOT order a USED frame. I ordered a discounted frame. NOT pleased, as this was purchased as a gift.
Summary: Got one last year which functioned great until a few days after its warranty expired, when the screen freezed white. The support staff responded quick though they didn't help me much, as the product wasn't giving them too much ground. The repairs would cost me the ridiculous amount of $130CAD, plus about ten s&h... The conclusion is obvious: buy another one... hell, no!
Good picture quality - but the software is horrible
1 January 2009
Summary: This was purchased as a Christmas present for me. I spent almost the entire afternoon trying to load the software and make it work. It messed up my computer so bad I had to restore it to get it back. I tried just about everything including updating the firmware, uninstalling and re-installing; nothing worked. I gave up. The software is bloated and poorly engineered. On the box it states it comes with a USB cable to attach it to your computer.
Summary: Okay, I tried downloading my pictures I already have on my computer onto this frame. My computer is acting like it doesn't know I have the USB connected to the frame. The USB cord works with everything else including downloading pics from my camera. I didn't want the ones on my camera on this frame though. I will try it out tomorrow when I have time with a memory card or any other way and see what happens. This is a Christmas gift and so far it has been maddening!
Summary: First of all I like to say I have used Amazon for several years and have never had any problems with them. So do not be mislead by some of the reviewers here. I bought two HD frames, this and a Linx 10". I was extremely pleased with the Linx and gave it 5 stars, but was disappointed with this one. It looks nicer and is made by a reputable company, but the usability is really something to be desired. I don't know what they were thinking of when they designed this frame.
Summary: First lets start with the positive, the picture quality is great; and it feels like a high quality product. However, the user interface is awful; un-intuitive and as far as I can tell missing some obvious functions: there is no one touch pause/play capability in the slide show. The menu structure associated with the quick touch border takes effort to get used to and is not explained in the manual.
