Summary: The frame worked great for a little over a year then it crashed and could not reboot. After numerous calls to Kodak, Kodak Tech reps said they could not fix the frame and offered a 10% discount on my next Kodak frame. I will not be using that discount.
Summary: As others noted, this thing has great specs, great features, but just a poor implementation. I'm only a week in with this thing, but here are th problems I've had so far: -Kludgey frame software. I've managed to crash it several times just clicking normal buttons. It will literally just suddenly display a scrambled screen and require a power cycle. I've updated it to the latest firmware and still happens. -Kludgey PC software. Again, it just plain crashes.
Summary: I bought two of these in December. On one of them the vertical touch border would work for the 1st 5 minutes the frame was on. Then only the horizontal one was working. I returned it thinking I was the unlucky one. The new one that I got hangs and restarts for no reason. I tried resetting the settings but now after doing so I can't even get back to the settings menu to set up the wireless network, it will hang before I get the chance to do so.

Summary: I will keep this review short and to the point as I am full of anger towards Kodak for selling this ill-executed garbage of a product. Background I wanted to buy wifey a digital frame for her b'day. One that would easily be updated (wireless). I addition I wanted to buy my parents one so that they could see pictures that we uploaded to the web. Great thought. So we found the Kodak.
Summary: I wanted to like this frame, lots of features, great picture quality but then there is the wireless performance. The wireless options are great but it does not help if you can only connect to wireless right next to my access point. As soon as I move the frame to the place we want it I can no longer connect. I have 3 other wireless devices in the same room (even further from the access point) that connect perfectly.
Summary: I bought this frame for my fiance so he could link up to his flickr account and also use the niffy WiFi features. This was a Christmas gift, and while he was very excited, and we were both very impressed with the picture quality, we were also VERY disappointed that the frame would drop the network connection after about three minutes. I think we lost half of Christmas to troubleshooting.
Summary: I bought the product as a gift for my parents. My hope was to buy a wireless digital picture frame that could download the latest family pictures to my parent's living room. In short: if this is what you want it to do, you're buying the wrong frame. The positives on this frame include: 1) bright, crisp display, 2) attractive packaging, 3) reasonable price to value (assuming wireless is a pre-requisite), and 4) good picture/video/music format support (you'll likely need...
