Pros: "Easy upload": upload various ways, USB stick, various SIM cards, internet, FB, e-mail (which friends can also e-mail to).
Cons: Can't connect the unit to a computer via cable. Can't connect on a MS network. Can't do most functions without WiFi. Can't reset to factory defaults without WiFi. Can't review multiple files from the frame or delete more than one at a time.
Summary: Cons definitely outweigh the pros.
All useful settings must be done via WiFi.
Can't connect the unit to a computer via cable.
Can't connect WiFi on a MS network (so don't bother taking it to your workplace)
Can't set energy savings times on the unit. And once set via WiFi can't change without WiFi.
Can't reset to factory defaults without WiFi.
Can't update BIOs without WiFi
Can't review multiple files from the frame to delete en-mass.
Can't delete multiple files via WiFi at once.
Pictures loaded via card / USB can't be seen from online, so can't be managed without going through website / WiFi for uploads.
I bought the 7" unit to take to work. I figured going with the touchscreen and the power friendly would be more eco-friendly. It's been nothing but trouble at work. Can't deal with a MS network (needs direct WEP or similar password) - no ability to put in a user name / pswd. The help claims that it is motion / sound / light sensor equipped if you don't set up the timer via the web. Apparently not since I don't have any option for that on the web, and have tested / confirmed that it doesn't actually do that. And since there is no battery backup system, if I set it up at home and take it to work I have my pictures, but the power settings don't work.
Should have just bought a cheaper unit with good old fashioned buttons.
