Summary: This is my second Kodak frame. The previous on (a 10" EX series) died after about a year and a half. This W1020 reboots regularly without any input from we. The wireless is buggy and there is no software for Mac.
Summary: as others have written in the past the 16:9 ration of the screen is very frustrating. you either have to "fit to screen" which will cut off parts of your photos and make them look like they are not centered, or you have to put up with 1 inch black lines on either side of the screen to get to 4:3...
Summary: So, I bought this frame for my wife. The idea was that I would pull the images wirelessly from our server and display them. I could update the folder on the server and the pictures would show up on the frame. Reality is that the frame can not communicate with standard servers for file service.
Summary: I purchased 4 of these for relatives because I thought it would be a great way to share photos with them without having to instruct them how to get the pictures on the frame. Mission accomplished, at first, but then the hardware quality issues started.
Summary: Strangely enough, it worked great when I first set it up. The software had to be repaired after the install, but then it worked fine. I setup a feed from my Flickr account, and that worked flawlessly... at first.
Summary: This could be a nice frame-- picture quality & the screen size is wonderful. Colors are a bit too bright, but overall I have no complaints of the pictures I was able to view, however I'm sending it back because of its inability to work with my network.
Summary: I've owned this frame for about 9 months and was very pleased with the picture quality and the wireless feature. The picture quality is good to very good but the real attraction was the wireless feature.
Good concept but flawed in implementation--not industrial strength

Summary: A great concept--photographs taken years ago and which I had forgotten about would pop up and I'd spend minutes in front of this thing, going into reveries. However, the downside is that it is not quite ready for "prime time.
Summary: On the surface this looked like a great product having several wireless networking features to provide connectivity to a variety of online and network sources. Unfortunately, after purcasing the W1020, it became apparent that the wireless feature was poorly designed as the wireless connectivity...
Summary: Such a shame. I really wanted this to work for me but reluctantly returned it to Staples for a refund. From a display perspective I found the image very good. Not supersharp, but colourful and contrasty, with enough detail to keep me happy and I'm a fussy photographer.
