Summary: The big difference with other photoframe is - this is WIRELESS photoframe. That is the reason why I selected this item although somewhat expensive than common digital photoframes. 1. Pros - I can upload my photos from my laptop to : flickr, google picasa, Kodak photoshare whenever I upload my photos, the digital frame gets new pictures from those sites. 2. For whom? - If you want to share your children's photo with grandparents, this would be a good solution.
Summary: It looks nice but it is not without it's issues. My husband is super tech savvy. He never could figure a way to get flickr to work with this frame. The Kodak website worked fine. However, my MIL, who received this as a gift has discovered some pictures that I did not put on the Kodak site. They were from a friend who shared her photos with me a while back.
Summary: My second Kodak photoframe and they definitely keep getting better. One huge caveat though - to use most of the features on the frame fully (i.e. even Flickr on WiFi) you need to use the OEM software that comes with the frame. And there's the rub, there is NO Macintosh software of any kind either included with the frame or on Kodak's website. Mac owners have to be content with basic, limited, un-customize-able functionality.
Summary: The picture frame has a lot of features and is user friendly. The frame has the ability to wirlessly scan your network and collect photos, videos and music for playing. Basically you can play items from its internal memory, SD/Memory cards attached, Your Kodak Gallery Albums, Flickr or your network by selecting the source. It also has web channels such as weather, sports, etc. that you can see highlights.
Summary: I was disapointed that it would not play the video that I took with my Kodak easyshare z1275, after all it is a Kodak. The internet capabilitys are not worth considering. It is very very limited when you use the internet, I have broadband. I do like the wifi hookup to my cumputer, I can pick any picture folder and play it without transfering it to a flash drive. That is a great feature.
