Pix-Star PXT408WR01 User Reviews
Very good product, easy to use, powerful features
“I was looking for a frame that I could connect to the Internet so that all the family can send me pictures. As i am not technically savvy I was a bit reluctant at the beginning with this kind of device but decided to finally give a try. I must say that even for a person like me it was very easy to configure the WiFi connection, register the frame to get an email address and start receiving pictures in a few minutes! The user interface is very intuitive, the screen is beautiful and quite big (8 inches), the menu is very user friendly.” – By René
Nice product, easy to use, great features for the family
“My main criteria in choosing this digital picture frame were: picture clarity, easy to set-up and use, Internet connection for picture sharing, at a good price-to-value ratio. The Pix-Star worked like perfect right out of the box. I am a technical savvy person and it was very easy to configure the WiFi, the user interface is very easy and “straight forward”, no need to read the user manual, and in a few minutes I got it registered on the pix-star.com web site with my OWN personal email address…” – By Ying Hou
Pretty good product
“Our experience out of the box was everything worked great. Then the frame forced us to install an update. After the update, it could no longer see any wifi networks or connect to them manually. Turning off the frame and leaving it off for 10 minutes seemed to fix this problem though. Once things were up and running it works pretty well. Once you have your picasa albums linked on the website you can view them perfectly on the frame and the email to frame feature works well too. Overall fairly happy with the product and just hope it doesn’t stop connecting to wifi again.” – By techguy
Overall I’m Pleased
“I was looking to fulfill one use case with a photo frame. I wanted to be able to give this frame to my parents pre-configured and be able to remotely send photos to it from my cell phone. While the user interface isn’t the best it does exactly what I want and I’m pleased with the functionality. If you want a hassle-free frame that you can send images to and have them appear remotely this is really a good choice. I find it infinitely easier to use and manage than the Kodak Pulse I was playing with…” – By bromanko
