Summary: Bought this several years ago and it has a great picture and has worked well since then. The problem is that even though they still advertise being able to use the Framechannel service, it is no longer available. I survived that by using the Picasa service for a while but now Google is switching Picasa over to Google+ for photos. Picasa redirects you there now and the Toshiba has no way to change the site address.
Summary: I bought the frame only to find out that the service it uses to send pictures no longer exists. I tried to set it up using other services but couldn't get it to work. I called Toshiba Customer Service to help me, but they no longer support their frames. Returned the frame that I bought for my future in-laws after two days of frustration and embarrassment.
Summary: The "product description" is no longer accurate. A big part of the appeal of this photo frame was its ability to display photos from the Framechannel Web photo service (which could draw them from anyplace else), but Framechannel has shut down. This Toshiba frame is supposed to be able to connect to one other Web photo service, Google Picasa, but I have been unable to get that to work. (I follow the simple directions, but the frame doesn't connect to the Picasa service.
Summary: I was excited about this media frame when I purchased it through Amazon. But that excitement turned quickly to disappointment when I switched it on for the first time and found a pinhead size white spot in the center of the display. I don't know how many dead pixels are involved here, but the light shining through is noticeable from several feet away. Had those dead pixels been on the perimeter it wouldn't have been as bad.
Best picture frame at this price; Update: It broke

Summary: I am reviewing this digital picture frame against other frames in its class (under $200 on Amazon). At that price, it's difficult to find a comparable frame with its feature set. The only other other frame with similar feature set is the Kodak Pulse. That one is a 7" non-wide screen which some may prefer. It is slightly cheaper than this 10" frame, but is similar prices to the 8" Toshiba.
Summary: I purchased this item specifically for its wireless capabilities. Setup wasn't too difficult. I got it connected to framechannel without too much hassle. However, after about 3 or 4 hours, the unit completely jammed the my wireless home network. Every wireless device in the house stopped working. I unplugged the picture frame from the wall and my home network came back online. I repeated this process about 5 times to make sure it wasn't just a fluke. Happened every time.
Summary: My Fiancee asked for a digital picture frame for her birthday so I did a bit of research, and looking at actual frames at retail stores. She loves to check her friend's Facebook photos every day so when I saw that FrameChannel was an embedded feature of this frame I decided to take a risk. When it arrived I set it up with some pictures and videos in memory like normal frames but also set up a FrameChannel account for her.
