Summary: Quality of picture and ease of use makes up for the lack of random display and lets me recommend the frame. Good buy for the money.
Pros: This frame has a great picture and good viewing angle. Clear / sharp pictures displayed and the filmshow that is preloaded gives plenty of time to look over a picture, but not too much time, before moving on to the next one.
Cons: Will not diplay picture randomly so care must be taken to mix them up on the SD card when to transfer from your computer. This is the reason for the 4 instead of a 5 rating.
Summary: I purchased 3 of these to give as presents. I have had the 1st one for a month. I have memory sticks (new and old) for more photos. The photo frame read the old 128 meg Memory Stick just fine. The newer MS Duo it read but had problems adding photos to the stick.
Summary: It actually arrived a day early... just Newegg at its best once again. Have had some larger purchases on here that amount to way more than just $100, trusted name... great service yet again... thanks Newegg.
Pros: Just writing up a quick review since I had the tab available in my "My Accounts" page. Worked right of the box, we had already gotten a USB setup with the pictures we wanted, so it took a whole 5 sec's to see if it worked. Plug in and play.... as easy as it gets.
Cons: This has no bearing on the product, but I think it would have been cool to play around with the WiFi version of this product. Screen size is in the middle of most other products, so the price was reasonable for the size.
Summary: I think it is good if you plan to keep it on all of the time, turning it off and on is a rather painful process...
Pros: Pictures look good, easy to setup, can stretch or crop pictures (based on your preference), you can rotate image right from the unit
Cons: As others have mentioned, you cannot shuffle or change the display order. What makes this even worse is every time you turn the unit off and on it starts again from the beginning. Another problem, when you first turn it on it takes a VERY long time to go to the menu, and then you have to tell it ...
Summary: For the most part, everything turned out as I expected except for two things. 1) I was disappointed with my images not being able to fill the 8" screen. Even with that option available, when I checked the box to fill screen with picture, none of my pictures filled up the screen as demonstrated with...
Summary: Easy to set up and use and grandpa loved it. I did not install the software and utilize it because I had read reviews that reported it was not helpful, but rather put pictures on a flash drive and then transferred to the internal frame memory which was easy and worked well.
Summary: This is a review of the SV811 which I bought to give to my 76-year old parents who don't have a computer, Internet connection, or digital camera. I was looking for a easy way for the family to be able to share digital photos when visiting, and to provide them with a 'stock' set of family photos that...
If you can add the photos, a good gift for the elderly.

Summary: I'll start off with the fact that this was purchased as a gift for my 85 year old grandmother in-law who always complains that she never has any pictures of our family. My favorite aspect of this product is, that if you preload it with pictures for someone, when you turn it on it just goes into...
Summary: I purchased six Kodak SV-811 8-inch Digital Picture Frames as Christmas gifts for my wife and grown children. Prior to my purchase, I searched CNET and other electonic portals to check reviews by professional reviewers, ratings by users, and price. I zeroed in on Kodak's 7 and 8 inche models.
Summary: Cons: 1. Unfortunalty I am going to have to exchange this product for a new one, due to several "blank" pixels on the left side of the frame after the frame has been on for a few hours. 2. I was very disappointed in the instructions for using the frame.
