Kodak EasyShare W1020 review

£110.92 inc VAT

Manufacturer: Kodak

Our Rating: We rate this 4 out of 5

The Kodak EasyShare W1020 digital photo frame stands out thanks to its ease of use (in most respects), with or without Kodak's proprietary software.

The Kodak EasyShare W1020 digital photo frame stands out thanks to its ease of use (in most respects), with or without Kodak's proprietary software.

The 10in Kodak EasyShare W1020 frame, which displays at a 16:9 ratio, produced very good colour 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.

The Kodak EasyShare W1020 is Wi-Fi-enabled and can stream content from your Kodak EasyShare Gallery and Flickr account. The hardest part of setting up the Wi-Fi is entering your network key using the remote or a touchscreen. Doing so can be a challenge, but at least once it's done, it's done.

The Kodak EasyShare W1020 has a tactile frame in Kodak's Quick Touch border, which is a set of embedded buttons. Navigating the buttons and their menus comes with a bit of a learning curve, though, between user misfire on the touch panel and Kodak's rather clunky, nested menu system.

One easy task, however, is starting a slideshow - you simply plug in a media card. You can also listen to MP3s while photos are streaming. Music sounded a bit tinny through the Kodak EasyShare W1020.

Like several other frames we've tested, the Kodak EasyShare W1020 has 512MB of internal memory and supports multiple types of cards, including SD, SDHC, MMC, MS, xD, and CF, as well as USB flash drives. (It can also play MPEG 1 and 4, AVI, and MOV files.)

This frame also has two card slots. But the W1020 does not handle nested folders on a card or a USB flash drive; it needs everything to be in the same folder. In addition, the frame feels plasticky and a little cheap when you pick it up, but from a distance (a wall or desk), it looks okay.

  • Overall: We give this item 8 of 10 overall

The Kodak EasyShare W1020 includes Wi-Fi and is easy to set up, but the included Kodak software is clunky and slows down your PC, and the touch border can be awkward to navigate. Overall, it's a qualified success at a reasonable price.
