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..
Great when it works (after some frustrating setup issues)
21 December 2009
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.
Summary: I bought this product a month ago as a gift to my brother in law. So far he is very impressed with the photo frame. The picture is very crisp with good resolution. The software works fine. The touch screen (or I should say touch frame) menu options are very convenient and intuitive, makes it easier to operate. So overall I am very satisfied with this digital frame. I am reserving 5th star for customer service (I hope I don't have to contact them at all!).
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: It was easy to setup and the interface was easy to use for the most part. Sometimes, the software seemed funky when trying to come from settings back to the photos play mode. If you put in an external SD card, it recognizes it immediately without any change in settings.
Summary: We enjoy the Kodak Picture frame, and it's really easy to use. The only down side to it is it's size. From a distance, it's hard to see the photos. The next digital frame we plan to purchase will be larger (12 inches or larger). The only other complint I have is memory storage. I would be more likely to purchase a unit with wifi and a larger memory capacity, so I can transfer a large number of photos direct from my computer to the digital frame.
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!
