Pros Clear Image - excellent Wireless
Cons 800x480 trims the pictures
Summary Love this frame. THe WiFi has worked great. My family can upload their pictures to Kodak's web site for FREE and are downloaded automatically. Images are crisp and bright. Since there is no monthly fees, it explains the slightly higher in price. I would definately recommend this fram to anyone.
Pros Sharp, nice display (from internal memory only)
Cons WiFi basically can't be used due to lack of speed, problems with any .jpeg if not in memory
Summary DON'T BUY THIS PRODUCT, I HAVE NO IDEA HOW IT GOT AN "8"
I bought this version of the digital picture frame because of its WiFi features. But that feature is essentially unusable, even if the frame is right next to the wireless router. Any .jpeg file NOT saved to the Frame's internal memory can randomly be flagged as "invalid file format" and the frame just hangs. I've gotten it to work on the 128 mb internal memory consistently (though even that mode hiccuped once and I had to reset the frame). Kodak's tech support has been absolutely NO HELP on this (I emailed 2x before I got a response, answered the questions in the response and since have heard NOTHING at all.(2 weeks))
Pros Good picture quality. Easy to use.
Cons See workaround below. Wireless implementation seems stupid (why would I want to have my PC on all the time just to feed the frame? I thought the wireless would let me add/remove photos periodically.
Summary I copied a set of files to the frame and some of them would not display. The message was "the current file is bad". I resized the photos to 800x480 but that did not help. Then I tried opening the iles in Adobe Elements 7.0 and selecting "Save for Web" with the quality at 100%. Now the frame happily displays all the pictures
"great feature set"on by stampy932
Pros lots o connectivity options, free integration with photo web site
Cons images not auto-resized for the frame, response from remote sometimes seems a little slow
Summary We bought 3 of these frames for family and friends. After getting through the setup process, we can now easily share photos across the world(some people live overseas). Normal operation is fine, sometimes response from the remote control seems a little slow. Another nice feature is the scheduler which lets the frame turn itself on/off certain times of the day.
If they add auto image resizing to minimize download times when connecting over the web, that would be almost perfect as far as the feature set goes. Of course everyone always wants a bigger view screen...
Pros it used to work fine. then they instituted their "pay $5/year or we delete your photos" policy. I will never buy KODAK products again.
Cons I don't like that KODAK changed their policy to require users of their "free" kodakgallery webservice to pay a yearly fee in order to keep their storage.
Summary The frame is alright, but you can only use it with kodak's proprietary web-storage, which is marketed as free, but they require you to pay $5/year to keep it going.
