Expert Reviews

Kodak EasyShare W1020 Digital Frame Expert Reviews

Trustedreviews reviews the Kodak EasyShare W1020 Digital Frame and writes;
“At least the bottom edge of the frame (when in landscape mode) and the edge of the stand are rubberised to stop the frame slipping about and scratching the surface it’s sitting on. All in all, the W1010 feels well thought out and the build quality is good, or at least as good as it can be considering its entire external structure is plastic. “
Rating: ★★★½☆

CNET reviews the Kodak EasyShare W1020 Digital Frame and writes;
“As for image quality, no, this LCD can’t deliver the same eye-popping color and contrast of the OLED frame, but it’s quite good. At 800×480, the image may not be razor sharp and you’ll see some slight stair-stepping on curved edges and diagonal lines, like on leaves. The colors look pretty natural, and though blacks may not be terribly deep, there’s enough dynamic range in the midtones to render sufficient detail in shadows.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

Photoreview reviews the Kodak EasyShare W1020 Digital Frame and writes;
“The audio quality from the built-in speakers is pretty tinny and the built-in background music is bland. MP3 files uploaded via a USB thumb drive fared little better in sound quality – but at least they allowed us to choose the music tracks.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

Macworld reviews the Kodak EasyShare W1020 Digital Frame and writes;
“Kodak’s W1020 digital photo frame stands out thanks to its image quality. The 10-inch frame, which displays at a 16:9 ratio, produced very good color accuracy in our tests. In addition, it retained a commendable amount of detail across highlights, midtones, and shadows when compared with our original photo files.”

User Opinions

Kodak EasyShare W1020 Digital Frame User Reviews

Solid early entrant for affordable Wifi frame, | Rating: ★★★★☆
“wide support for online sites – it works out of the box with Flickr, Picasa, and Kodak’s own site, screen quality – it’s not awesome but from 5 feet or more, it looks just fine, good looking – it actually looks like a frame and has options for changing the border color. .” – By Bill

Nice (once you get it to work), | Rating: ★★★★☆
“Background audio breaks up when playing slideshows. This occurred with the audio and video files transferred wirelessly or pre-loaded on the frame. My initial assumption was the processor in the frame is just plain undersized or incompatible with my MP3 ripper. Attempts to correct this by re-ripping my audio tracks at a lower bit-rate were fruitless although I did notice that audio worked well while not in a slide show.” – By Craig Petku

one of the best, | Rating: ★★★★☆
“Interface can be hard at first even harder for older people who want touch the screen and not the edge. Wireless work great. I set up framechannel for my grandmother who live in a home with wireless internet.. Sound/Video is very good but find it better for viewing video from you digital camera then have it be normal thing comes up ever few mins. Viewing from side and up and down isnt bad when you put it next to other frames going for this price. “ – By B. Gunderson

W1020 – Recommended Software to use with, | Rating: ★★★★★
“Use the excellent re-sizer and manager software “FastStone” […] (Also Free for personal home use) to re-size frame images to 848 X 480 to get exact frame size at maximum resolution and minimum file sizes in 16X9 formats. Do not use smart crop (fastone) or your pictures will get headless people..” – By Patrick Mccabe

Excellent digital frame!, | Rating: ★★★★★
“A little pricey compared to other digital frames, but the features like the touch panel and its Wi-Fi capability make it a pretty good value.
