Summary: The death of the framechannel makes the wi-fi option useless. Framechannel was the only way to get rich multimedia options and pictures on the frame through wifi. The wifi has no other functionality now that framechannel shut it's doors. You're better off buying a cheaper equivalent without the wifi cause that's what your left with. Even when the frame channel was up and running, I had connectivity issues with it. Other than that, it's a great looking frame!
Summary: We purchased two of these frames as presents for the grandparents this Christmas. Setting them up for wifi use went pretty smoothly, although typing in a long WEP key was awkward. I set up a PicasaWeb account specifically for this purpose, and pointed both frames to it so now I can add pictures remotely. The recipients love them, and as long as they stay in range of the wireless router, we haven't had problems with the pictures not streaming properly.
Nice picture display, iffy and buggy wifi connection

Summary: It's a nice-appearing little frame, and the images show well, with good contrast and color saturation. Playing back pictures from an inserted media card is a snap. I rate these aspects at four and one half stars. No cigar for the wifi implementation, however, which is problematic. First off, the frame needs to be placed physically close to my router for the wifi to work with any degree of reliability. If I place it on a different floor from the router, all bets are off.
Summary: The first limitation I found is the size of the pictures, be aware that you'll have problems if your pictures are 2MB or bigger. In my case I like taking pictures with the highest resolution that my camera allows, and that's sometimes just above 2MB per picture, so it's an inconvenince to have to save a reduced version for the frame. The second limitation is that the wireless capability only works with Picasa and FrameChannel.
