Summary: I've only been using this frame for a few days but happy with it. Setup wasn't too bad. I did have one problem with it. When I would go to pictures and videos it would freeze at an hourglass until it would restart and go to the internal memory. Tracked it down to having the UPnP AV server on my NAS turned on. Thought it might be because I had too much on it so I set it to share only one folder with just a small handful of files but still no go.
Summary: I love the idea, and I saw features both before and after the firmware upgrade so Kodak is definitely trying because the second firmware adds a lot... but essentially it's still a little quirky. As another reviewer mentions, you can have it cycle pictures from memory, from Kodak Gallery, or Flickr - but not a combination of them - UNLESS you tell it to use FrameChannel and setup links there.
Pretty decent as long as you don't overpay for it!

Summary: I bought this for less than fifty bucks about a year ago from elsewhere. The picture quality is pretty decent. The biggest pro is the built in wi-fi. You can go to [...] and register your frame and then enter that information in the frame. You can add a bunch of plugins to your framechannel account like picasa, flickr, weather, news etc.. and your frame will download it from those sources and display. That is an awesome feature. Frame's built in memory is ok.
Summary: The frame looks great and displays photos nicely. My main complaint is that connecting to a network is cumbersome and if the network is unavailable no photos from the web are displayed. It either doesn't store the photos internally or doesn't let you see them when disconnected. This was a problem when we set this up for my mother-in-law and when she got home couldn't see any photos.
Summary: I am very pc/gadget savvy, but found the setup tedious and confusing. Now that the frame is running I am very happy with it and recommend it. I installed the firmware upgrade immediately which probably resolved many of the earlier technical glitches and I use FrameChannel exclusively to manage the content (no memory cards). More about the setup and usage. Setup: - Connecting to the wireless network was easy (typing is clunky but is a one-time occurence).
Summary: Great digital picture frame;however, I do not have WiFi. This frame is intended for someone that has wireless connectivity in their residence. Having said this it works fine for us without wireless, and since I purchased it for less than $75--I consider it a bargain.
Summary: this item is great. The clarity is wonderful and the ooptions are alot. I found the listructions alittle hard to understand and the fact that when you shut it off you have to reset it a little dishearting (that is the weather, wifi,etc)
great product and lots of fun once you know how to use

Summary: The light up buttons don't match the actual touch spots. Not easy to understand unless you are lucky to find your way around the product by chance. Love the wifi idea but haven't had time to look into it. Great picture quality.
Summary: Just bought this for my mother for Xmas. This frame is Great!!!! It works very nicely with a site called FrameChannel.com. When setting it up for her, I can manage this account online, email pics directly to the frame through a free email address(so it can work with cell phone pics). It does very cool streaming of stocks, traffic, wheather, etc between pictures. We had no problem setting up the wireless for WPA-2 passwords. This thing was easy and worked great!!!
