Summary: Wow, I am very surprised to see this 3 yr old product still selling in the market. This was Kodak's product line from 2007. What surprises me even more is the price they are offering it at. These days, you could purchase a 8 inch digital photo frame under $80 at most dot coms and retailers.
Summary: Graphics. Okay. Buttons and remote...okay Peripheral capability....looks good but sucks Software/firmware.....crappy User manual.......crappy What Kodak should have provided was a software program that could be used to easily crop and size your photos to fit the 800x480 size. The frame did not even acknowledge when I plugged in a KODAK compactflash! What pooty-doo! Look around and compare before you buy this.
Summary: A friend of mine bought this for me while visiting New York. We live in South Africa. Unfortunately the frame does not work that well. We are using a 12v adapter to run the frame and it does not connect well to the actual digital photo frame. Therefore it constantly switches on and off. We are trying to chat with Kodak in South Africa to see if they can help us with this faulty frame.
Summary: I don't really want to repeat great reviews I've found for SV811 digital frame, especially the discussions about video playback at the frame. Siply put, Kodak falsely advertise that the frame can play video - it can't. EasyShare software badly designed and very inconvinient to use. You'll need extensive work with every picture in order to display it properly.
Summary: The frame was from kodak and normaly there products are good. This product was defective and I tried to e-mail kodak two times but none called me. The frame is still defective and I need more help from kodak to resolve this product. The frame was for my wife's mothers day but she's not happy to see her grandchildren pictures.
Summary: Bought this for a friend. Before giving it to the friend, wanted to load some pictures of the friends in to the frame. Here was my experience making the frame work. 1. Setting up the frame and getting demo to work was a breeze 2. When I connected the frame to my MacBookPro, the frame simply said use the "PC Interface to transfer photos". The frame becomes unusable at this point. I realized that frame is mounted as a "Untitled" volume in macbookpro.
Summary: I had high hopes for this product from Kodak which I thought would be intuitive and very user friendly to give to my mom for Mother's Day. I thought it had all the standard features of other frames and that it would be easy to use. When I received it, I plugged in the SD card that I had thoughtfully filled with decades of memorable photos for my mom, it was identified by the frame and started showing the photos. Fine...that's to be expected.
Summary: At first, I thought my pictures looked very good on this--bright and beautiful. But after it played through all my photos, I realized none of my video clips played, which it claimed to be able to do. I went into the menu and manually selected my video clips, only to be told "that format is not supported." Confused, I went back into the manual and was told to go online for a detailed list of all supported video formats.
Summary: The frame leans back too much, if you are using it as shown the leg is not long enough so you have to either place the frame really low, or be right on it so that the pictures do not appear black. I also had trouble downloading from the program that is provided, I ended up downloading to a usb memory stick. On the plus side the picture quality is great if you are standing close. The program is good fro lightening the pictures.
Summary: Frame is not what is pictured on box. Very dull black finish and not metallic. On-off function not working with remote, and Kodak website on-line help not very helpful or informative. Several email exchanges with their support people with the end result being that I have to pay to ship to a repair facility - not a good customer experience!
