Looking for another WiFi option

Michael A Horning, Amazon
27 June 2011
  • Summary: Initially I bought this frame for its WiFi capabilities. Buyers should know that Framechannel has gone out of business so if you are buying this to synch with Flickr or Facebook or some other social media site, you now can't. You can still sync to Picasa but that is it. The frame looks nice, but the touch screen does not work well. You have to push the buttons hard and multiple times to get it to work. If you have the remote, it works okay.

Very so-so for displaying on-line images

BDG "hoopsnut", Amazon

  • Summary: We have had this frame for about 6 months. We were planning to use the frame to display pictures that are uploaded to my Picasa account. If that is what you are looking to do, this not the frame for you. The network setup and online setup are fairly simple and straightforward. The network functions operate in a unpredictable manner. Sometimes it disconnects itself from the WiFi network for no apparent reason.

I like it

  • Summary: I bought this for my mother who lives in India and sent it as a her Birthday Present. Whenever I upload my kids pictures to framechannel,she can see them immediately. She is very happy with this frame. Before she had to take someone's help to view them in the computer. This frame made her independent and happy to view the pictures all the time without anyone's help. This is great product and works fine for my mother.

Great Frame for Sharing Potos

  • Summary: I've purchased three of these frames over the last several months. I wouldn't pay anywhere near suggest retail but if you can snag one for $90 or less it is a great deal. We have one at home and the other two were for my mother and mother-in-law who are in their late 60's early 70's. Translate as "technologically challenged." They both love it. The wifi feature along with Toshiba's free content site are what make this worthwhile.

Good features, weak wifi

J. Park, Amazon
22 December 2010
  • Summary: For the price this frame has excellent features including the ability to pull content from the internet either through FrameChannel or directly from Picasa Web Albums. The screen quality is good but the viewing angles aren't sufficient. I currently have it on a shelf that puts it a little above eye level when seated. Unfortunately, when seated the picture becomes dark and you lose a lot of the detail. That's the minor issue. The main issue is with the wireless network.

great frame

nikkecole, Amazon

  • Summary: I love this frame! I use at work on my desk and have been nothing but pleased with it. The picture quality is wonderful and for the price, it really does have a lot of features. The wireless framechannel connectivity is a huge plus! The interface is great and easy to use also (compared to other digital frames I have used).

It's a very good item in this price

Avison, Amazon
16 September 2010
  • Summary: It's a photo frame with basic functionality. The WiFi feature is not so great and it can be neglected at the time of purchase. Picture quality is good. The screen looks small compared to the border. The border around the screen is little wide. There is no cable connector to PC or laptop. better to go for a 10 inch photo frame. After all i got the item exactly as described. The shipping took long time.

Good Frame

John Dugan, Amazon
1 August 2010
  • Summary: Perfect for sharing Picasa pics with the broader family. Easy to join the frame to your wifi and then just set it on Framechannel - not local photos. [...] is unique to Toshiba and does a great job streaming news, weather, sports scores, etc. to your frame. You also direct it to an online Picasa album and it streams live. I set one up for my mother and now she gets live updates to our family photos from across the country! All easy to use - good web interface.

Not ready for prime time

Biff Henderson, Amazon
14 April 2010
  • Summary: I've tried a variety of these wifi-enabled digital frames and always end up disappointed. Whether it's some incompatible file format or intermittent dropping of a wireless signal, there always seems to be some problem with these frames. Specifically with this Toshiba, it has a, somewhat, clumsy set-up, is unable to reconnect to a wireless network after programmed power down and power up, randomly won't play certain photos off an SD card, repeatedly has difficulty...
