Summary: You can't even use the wifi features of this frame when Kodak deletes all of your pictures. If you can't use the Kodak Gallery (only on-line service supported), then you might as well save some money, and buy another frame that uses portable storage. Very, very, very disappointed. I responded to every warning from Kodak with a reminder that I was using the gallery with my frame. THEY DELETED MY PICTURES ANYWAY!!!
Summary: I received this frame for Christmas. I was pleased with the ease of use in downloading photos to the frame, the picture quality was amazing as well-for the 1st 2 days! The images began to get brighter and brighter on my frame, each passing day. I made sure to only leave the frame on during the day and turned the frame off when retiring to bed. By the 4th day of having the frame the frame showed NO IMAGES, only a totally white screen.
Summary: This picture frame program is not worth the price. I would not buy it again. The documentation is less than minimal--very little help from the website. The product has easy share in the name--you would think EasyShare software would set up the slide show, but there is no ability to use Easyshare. I have several pictures that I loaded in a flashdrive (jpegs) that create an error message and are skipped for no apparent reason.
Summary: Would not transfer pictures from Easyshare photos. Spent over 3 hours on phone with so called techs that were very hard to undertand. Poor english. Finally he said it needed to be sent back for repairs.
Summary: This digital photo frame is ok, but not great! The frame stand is MUCH, MUCH too short and forces the frame to lie back at a very low angle. Also, the Voice quality of my videos when displayed on this frame sounds like Mickey Mouse is talking!! Picture quality is ok.
Summary: Displays jpg photos beautifully, but it won't play png files as advertised. Also, it won't play avi or mov files UNLESS they came from a digital camera. (What is the difference?) I thought an avi was an avi and an mov was an mov. SILLY ME! I wanted to return it, but I guess it was my fault for not knowing more about file types. Why won't it play png though? Personally, I use png files because they don't degrade like jpg does.
Summary: I purchased this picture frame primarily because it stated on the packaging that it played MPEG4 movies. Come to find out that it doesn't actually play/recognize them - at least not the files from my camera. Troubleshooting online revealed that many buyers have had the same problem. None have found an easy solution and only a few have been able to get the frame to work after jumping through a lot of hoops. This purchase was a huge disappointment.
Summary: I ordered six SV-811 8 inch Kodak Digital Picture Frames on Dec. 2, 2007. The one that I received and gave to my wife for Christmas was missing the USB Cord, Remote and the Remote Holder. I contacted Kodak on Dec. 24 to let them know that the parts were missing. All six picture frames came in plain brown boxes instead of the normal Kodak Packaging. They were sold to me, through Amazon, by Shop Digital Corp. On Dec.
Summary: I picked up this picture frame as a gift for my wife, thinking that the name (Kodak) would get me a better quality frame than some of the unknown brands out there. Well, I was partially right... the display is gorgeous, the frame seems well-built, and the feature set is rich. My initial assessment was strong enough to give the frame 4 stars. However, after using the frame for less than an hour, I believe that this device has one fatal flaw that ruins it.
Lots of Difficulties and the music option doesn't work
J. Bailey, Amazon
4 December 2007
Summary: After spending a good portion of the day working with the tech support, very poor support, hard to understand, following other links to upgrade firmware, etc. the music still will not download. Their responses to my requests for help were more surprising than the fact that the music feature doesn't work or I can't get it to work. Please shop for another brand.
