Summary: Bought this for my girlfriend because she's into picture taking but can't display them all. This way she can put a lot into one nice digital picture frame. Quality of the pictures is decent and it works really well no problems yet.
Summary: We have a Memory stick pro duo SD card stuck in the SD slot. It was placed in there without an adapter. Since the M820 is pretty much a sealed unit is there a service unit, Kodak or otherwise, where the frame can be sent to have the card removed? The frame has been great but an adapter should be included in the packaging along with the warning in the booklet. Right now the frame is USELESS.
Summary: Bought this as a gift for my 91 year old Mom for her birthday and she had just had surgery so loving, laying on the couch while watching pictures of her favorite people and places slide by. It has a music function , which I'm not using,, was a very easy upload and so much more room for additions and updates! great price! On screen, hidden , menu is a great feature.. Love this and would highly reccommend it..
Summary: I got this to entice myself to take more photographs. It's not perfect, but I'm happy overall. First of all, it's really easy to set up. You don't actually need to install the software. Just load your pictures onto a memory card or USB storage, plug it in, and the slide show starts. The screen is bright, it has great contrast, and the overall unit looks pretty with the included red or silver border. The frame is plastic and feels cheap when you hold it.
Summary: Just got this for my parents as a xmas gift, and I can say I am very happy with the unit. Setup is easy - turn on, watch the included demo video, and plug in your media (in my case, a USB flash drive) and you're good to go - the unit starts the slide show through your whole set automatically. The "touchscreen" is actually the bottom and right hand borders of the frame, and it's pretty responsive, although it may take a few minutes to get used to.
Summary: I was so excited when I received this for Christmas -- all I did was throw some pictures and music onto a jump drive, plug it into the back of the frame (where it doesn't show) and I had an instant slide show set to music! Forget the software that comes with it. Later I tried to use their software and it was horrible...but you don't need it!
Great when it works (after some frustrating setup issues)

Summary: I bought this last month during pre thanksgiving sale price for $29 from a local store. I guess the price is what made me to go thru the issues patiently. Here are the issues and my workarounds : 1. First it worked fine when inserted a SD card with less than 20pics. When I put the same card with ~1000 pictures, it hung forever. Workaround: Dont insert the card first. Power on the frame. Then insert the card. Then it was able to read it. 2.
Summary: I like the frame once I got it set up and all, but it took me some time to figure out how to add certain pix and not my entire collection. Adding music was a challenge also. Now that it's set up, everyone agrees it's a beautiful thing.
Summary: Excellent picture quality, pretty intuitive icons and navigation (the "touch frame" system is excellent, as you do not have to touch the screen at all). Also holds TONS of high-res photos in internal memory. My only gripe is that the frame tends to chop off portions of larger (1-2mb) photo files.
