Summary: I bought both the Coby DP-888 8" frame and the Kodak EasyShare SV811 8" frame and compared them using the same slide show. One was to keep and the other was destined for Grandmother as a gift. I wasn't interested in email, websites or wireless.
Summary: I purchased this as a present for my father. He absolutely loves it. The pros are a clean and clear picture, a large amount of internal memory, an easy to use interface, and nice looking frame. There are 2 cons to this model though. The image size is 480X800, which is a widescreen format.
**Updated - still a great digital frame...with some hiccups

Summary: ***Updated 9/27/08 - I still really like this digital frame - I purchased 5 and all 5 are still kicking with daily use. I use the auto on-off program feature which is so nice. It still won't accept the mini flash drives and there are still ocassional hiccups with edited pictures.
Summary: We bought this frame to send to grand parents and loaded many photos on it. Long file names were used to keep track of the various locations and dates. After much testing we found that there is not enough memory allocated to file names to allow long file names.
Summary: The frame works well. The software would not load after many attempts and multiple patches downloaded from the support website. We have to use a work-around to load pictures. We load pictures to a memory card inserted in our laptop.
Summary: The quality of the displayed image is wonderful. There are really only two or three minor issues. I gave it only three stars because there are frames for sale without these issues and I therefore would not buy this one again. First, there is no battery.
Summary: I don't know if I got a lemon or if all of these products have this defect, but the off/on timer does not work. The timer is designed to allow you to specify when you want your frame to operate. I enabled the timer to shut off at 8pm. The frame shut off its slide show running from an SD card at 8pm.
