Very Good, Easy to Use, but could be better.

I was looking for a picture frame that could stream photographs from my PC where I already have my entire photo catalogue organised and stored. I also wanted to be able to do this via Wireless so no messing with moving photos onto memory cards. After much reading and research I settled onto this Frame as the closest option to what I was looking for. So here are my thoughts on the good and bad points of this frame
+ Strong picture quality, not the best I've seen but up there with the best.
+ Excellent touch screen. I was woried about messy finger prints on screen , but this is not a problem.
+ Very simple and easy to setup. You do need to register on Kodak web site, but all very clear and easy
+ Ability to email photos to be displayed on the screen is fantastic. I use this to send photo's from my PC, and from mobile phone to the frame. My wife also really likes this as this makes putting photo's on to the frame simple for her.
On the downside.
- I was very disappointed that I cannot see the frame as a storage device on my local network (Not even a web interface). The only way to use the wireless connection or manage the frame remotely is via the Kodak Pulse website. The more I have used this, the less of an issue this has become, but it still bothers me I need the kodak web site to make this work (What happens if site goes down, or one day will Kodak start charging to use the
- While Frame allows you to set a timer for on/off to save energy, the timer only allows a single day on/off time. Ideally this would allow for Weekend / Weekday settings.
- Price is high to get the wireless capability (but this was worth it for me.)
Overall I would happily recommend this unit, and plan to buy one for my mother for Christmas as the ability to email photos to the picture frame is just so good for anyone that is technically challenged.
