Summary: I bought 3 of these in the past 6 months (one for myself and one for each set of in-laws). The touch frame is better than a remote but not quite as good as I imagine a touch screen to be (the only touch screen frame I found was very expensive).
Perfect "Magic Picture Frame" for the grandparents

Summary: Like many others, I did lots of research looking for wireless digital frames with the idea of giving them as gifts to my parents and in-laws, and having them constantly show photos of the kids and grandkids, with little to no effort on the receiver's part.
Summary: The W1020 works well enough for me. I see plenty of things that could use improvement, but in this case I think it's because any product that breaks new ground opens up a lot of possibilities.
Summary: I bought this frame for my mother who does not own a computer. She lives with my sister and has WiFi in the house. I configured the frame to connect to the free online service called Frame Channel.
Summary: I read several reviews here before buying this Kodak Photo frame and was not sure about the wireless feature being easy to set up. After receiving it I was happy to see that the setup was very easy. I had no problems as described by other reviewers.
Summary: Overall, good purchase Pros: excelent image quality, good size, easy to use. Cons: EasyShare software, too slow, not good for organizing folders, names, etc. I would rather prefer to be able to copy files (videos, pictures, etc) wirelessly via a ftp services or even better, mapping the device...
Summary: I like this frame a lot. It's constructed really well and my photos look great on it. The onboard controls are good enough and they disappear gracefully when not in use. The frame supports all kinds of memory cards as well as a USB port for a thumb drive.
Summary: I received this unit for Christmas and seriously thought about sending it back. However, after several days of playing with it to figure out several issues that aren't adressed in the product manual or SW updatees I finally have it working well enough to give it a fair review based upon the...
Summary: My overall take on this is that there are indeed software issues with this contraption, but its still one of the coolest things I've bought for under $250. So here's the bad, the good, and the really cool. First the bad. Yes, the software is slow.
Summary: I've been looking for a wireless frame for a while and wanted to wait until I found products that were both affordable and reasonable mature. The W1020 is a solid step but it's far from perfect (at least for my target use of streaming and updating photos).
