Expert Reviews

Kodak EasyShare W820 Digital Frame Expert Reviews

PCMag reviews the Kodak EasyShare W820 Digital Frame and writes;
“Images viewed on the W820 were often oversaturated, flat, and lacking in sharpness, especially when streaming from the Web (see more on this issue below). Images displayed from the internal memory and removable media were significantly sharper, but were still much flatter than those viewed on other frames, such as the Sony VGF-CP1. “
Rating: ★★½☆☆

DigitalPictureFramereview reviews the Kodak EasyShare W820 Digital Frame and writes;
“The amount of content you can get from the web on this frame using its WiFi connection, and the ease with which you can do it, really make the W820 a joy to use. Interface design – both the touch-sensitive soft buttons and the “no nonsense” menu structure – is excellent, clearly superior to the poorly designed, laborious menu systems on most digital frames.”

Kodak EasyShare W820 Digital Frame User Reviews

WiFi Frame, | Rating: ★★★★☆
“We have a new baby and we bought a frame for each set of grandparents for christmas and one for ourselves. I can download pics onto my computer with my camera and upload easily to Kodak’s site, then the picture automatically (after you set up an account etc..) update on the grandparent’s frame – it’s awesome! They love getting new pictures of the baby all the time. This is a fantastic gift! “ – By Sienna’s Mommy

Ignore old reviews – firmware update fixed everything, | Rating: ★★★★★
“This thing is really amazing. I have rss feeds, photos, weather, sports scores and more all randomly displayed on the frame in my living room.. I am really happy with this frame. At this size, the picture quality is fine – there is no issue with low resolution.” – By Just a guy

Excellent value, | Rating: ★★★★☆
“The W820 is capable of fetching images from any RSS 2.0 feed, not just Flickr. This means you can stream images to it from virtually anywhere (Picasa, Facebook). Although some online reviews have mentioned that ‘refreshing’ a feed on the frame is not possible unless you power-cycle it, the workaround is to use the ‘ttl’ specification of RSS which specifies the inherent refresh time for the feed, and it seems to work well with this frame.” – By Vineet Bansal

Works great with Flickr, | Rating: ★★★★★
“Framechannel works great, it allows me to show any RSS feed I want, including Flickr; Direct Flickr integration works well; Wireless works perfect in my apartment, no signal drop (although its only a few meters apart from the wifi router)” – By Esaito

The other reviews are wrong, | Rating: ★★★★☆
“It works very nicely with a site called FrameChannel.com. When setting it up for her, I can manage this account online, email pics directly to the frame through a free email address(so it can work with cell phone pics). It does very cool streaming of stocks, traffic, wheather, etc between pictures. We had no problem setting up the wireless for WPA-2 passwords. This thing was easy and worked great!!! “ – By R. Knowlton

Best frame value by far if you need remote mgmt, Frame Channel is key, | Rating: ★★★★★
“I updated the firmware immediately, and the wifi connection to my home network was easy, however it takes some time to select your passcode by arrowing thru the alphabet, but it’s only done once in setup. Colors are vivid, and I found the best picture quality by using a high quality jpeg compression and “not” allowing the frame to fill the screen w/ the image…” – By J. Hole

A quick review of a great product, | Rating: ★★★★★
“I bought this frame as new year gift for my mother overseas. The wireless capability and the RSS feed are the most great things for me on this frame. I set it up when I was there and now I can easily feed the frame via web with recent photos of mine and she is amazed with that…” – By Mehmed Cem Akatay

Very Good Product but Tough Setup, | Rating: ★★★★☆
“While you may need some fortitude for the initial setup, I found once that’s in the past it works like a charm. FrameChannel is a great product, I use it exclusively to manage/load content. In contrast to the initial setup, FrameChannel is very intuitive, easy to use and powerful. I.e…” – By Eli
