Kodak EasyShare M1020 10.2
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs The worst user experience of any consumer product I've ever used 11/27/2009

This review is from: Kodak EasyShare M1020 10.2" 800 x 480 Digital Picture Frame

Pros: None

Cons: - Grainy / low resolution.
- 16:9 aspect ratio is not suited for 99% of the photos out there, so things get cut off at the top/bottom of the photo.
- Painfully slow software on the PC -- 15 seconds for it to react to a click.
- Almost unbearably unusable software on the device itself, with absymal menu organization that almost encourages you to get lost.
- Ridiculously complex Flickr integration
- Flickr won't update automatically (you have to restart the frame to get updates from the feed).
- Documentation is out of sync with the product (e.g. doesn't mention Flickr, despite advertised integration)

Other Thoughts: We bought this frame in order to be able to share photos with my parents by uploading them to Flickr and (hopefully) having them appear on the frame automatically, over wireless. This should be braindead simple: (1) get mom a Flickr account. (2) Have all your family members that use register her as a "Friend / Family" on Flickr. (3) Point the photo frame to her "friends and family" photo feed. Not possible on this frame.

The frame itself is OK, although a bit grainy, but the software is just unbearable to use. After 7 months of trying to get it configured in a reasonably intelligent (i.e. "set it and forget it" way). It feels like a throwback to the 1980s, designed by a handful of IBM mainframe programmers that got their hands on a PC and decided to program a digital frame for masochists that want to spent hours getting lost in its menus to do the most basic configuration. The only reason I can think that this frame sells is because of the Kodak name.
