Great product - only negative for me is the menu layout.
23 May 2011
Summary: Very nice product and very well built - many options but a somewhat confusing menu layout. Touch sensitive menu selection in the border that lights up when activated and darkens back ato a plain border when de-activated is pretty cool. Liked this model so well that I have purchased a second one for a gift and will probably buy a couple more in the next couple months. This is a small unit but that is what we needed for the wall space where we wanted it installed.
Summary: This item is great. The only objection is that there were no operating instructions at all. You have to keep working with it to learn how to use it. A booklet or brochure of instructions would be most helpful, especially when giving it as a gift.
Summary: Good all around viewer for the price. Picture quality is excellent but the touch commands are extremely sensitive and can be difficult to control at times. No usb port which would have been useful.
Summary: There is a bit of a learning curve to get used to the touch lights. It would not play MP4s but did play AVI videos without a problem. There is also an extended users guide online at kodak. It is worth checking out if you want to do more than put pictures on a memory card or flash drive. The picture size is close to a 4x6 picture. I like the quality of the pictures and video on playback.
Summary: I bought this frame because I wanted a battery-powered frame so we could easily take our photos to other people's homes (only if they ask). It is the digital equivalent of bringing a photo album full of prints. It is much nicer to sit on a sofa and go through the photos than having everybody hunched around the computer or my cell phone. It was also about $420 less than an iPad.
Summary: I purchased this frame to replace a Pandigital frame that died (the lamp burned out and was too expensive to replace). The Kodak frame was fairly easy to set up, although sometimes navigating the menus is not intuitive and the touch sensitive buttons react unpredictably. But set-up is not what this is all about, it about seeing the pictures!
