Summary: I purchased one for my father back when Kodak existed and it worked well to share photos. We decided to get one for our own use and enjoy it. It is great to be able to share photos via internet - can send from phone, computer, etc. Amazingly, they are still maintaining the kodakpulse site and you can register new (old) frames and users. This is the only frame I am aware that does internet. Wifi flakes occasionally but otherwise great.
Summary: With or without the WiFi, I love this frame. I have two of them. It's compact so it is great for small areas. It's hard to find a small digital picture frame this size. The picture clarity is incredible. It also holds a lot of pictures. My only complaint is that the pictures are randomly shown and I wish there was an option to set so each picture would show one after another exactly as they are placed on the frame or memory chip as some pictures never seem to come up to...
Summary: I used the picture frame at our wedding. We created the personalized email address and had guests email pictures directly to the frame. It was awesome and the pictures will be cherished forever.
Summary: Bought this frame to replace another frame. Easy set up. You can load pictures on it or have it pull pictures from your Facebook account. It really has to be connected to the internet for it to work. The only cons are one the power plug, plugs into the bottom and its a bit to long. It raises the side up because of it. Also not much control from the frame. It will not play video or display calender, weather or other info. Its connected to the internet could do more.
Nice for a while, but I would NOT recommend buying this now.

Summary: When it worked, it was pretty nice, but the Wi-Fi totally stopped working right after warranty was up. Without wi-fi this thing loses most of it's charm. Add the fact that there's no guarantee how long the recently bankrupt Kodak will keep the pulse service running, and it makes no sense to buy this device.
Summary: We were given a 10" Pulse as a 2011 holiday gift. We loved it. But after five months it failed, and we've had 3 months of wrangling with the company Kodak outsourced support to. Most recently, they told us that they couldn't fix it, and couldn't replace it because there were no more replacement units in their stock, or expected. After another several weeks and three rounds of paperwork, they are now in the process of refunding the purchase price to our daughter.
Summary: I've given a number of these as gifts, even after Kodak sold, and we all love them. With family 3,000 miles away it makes them feel so much closer everytime they send a picture to my frame. I only hope that the @kodakpulse email address continue to work for a long time to come.
Summary: Bought this as present for my Mom and it works great, but I had to keep setting up the Wifi connection. It would keep losing it and I'd have to set it up again and again. Aside from that, it's great!
Summary: DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!!! It was sold to me immediately before Kodak was purchased by Shutterfly and Shutterfly does not support the Kodak digital frame, nor do they have anything that duplicates it. I am not able to return it.
