as good as kodak pulse? Aug 2, 2013
I've owned both. I first bought the Kodak Pulse to give to my parents and got several years out of it...my parents enjoyed seeing pics of the kids, grandkids and great grandkids. When it stopped working I tried to replace it and was disappointed to learn that it was no longer being made. We made the move to pixstar and have been very pleased. The pixstar has more bells and whistles that we don't use, but as far as a digital picture frame, it is every bit as good as the pulse was. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the pixstar.
Is it possible to manage the frame remotely? We have an elderly parent who will just want to see pictures. How much can we manage remotely? Oct 9, 2013
This is exactly why I bought the frame. My Mom is 90 and has no desire to learn computers, but was feeling left out with all the kids and grand kids sharing photos all the time. Yes, you can set it up to log in to the frame from your device and add, delete, change settings, pretty much anything the frame can do you can manage remotely. You can set a time for the frame to come on and a time for it to go off. New photos automatically show on the frame. You can go in from time to time and delete old photos if you want, all remotely. So far so good with the Pix-Star. Kodak...not so much.
YES it is 4:3. The actual viewing area of the screen is 8.3x6.2 inch (211x158 mm) it's a 10.4 inch diagonal screen. The Pix-Star Customer Support Team.
Is there a way to display web albums from 2 accounts from the same service.? For example display my Picasa account and my brother's on same frame Nov 27, 2013

What is the range of the wi fi connection? I have read some review that say the frame needs to be close to the router is this true , how close ? Mar 20, 2013
Hello, No this is not true. The range is similar to other devices with Wi-Fi (Smartphone, Laptops, etc...). You can have the frame in another room than the router, no problem, within a normal range for a Wi-Fi device. The Pix-Star Customer Support Team.
how does this compare with kodak pulse? Jun 19, 2014
A thousand times better!!! Started with the Pulse which died in six months. Got another. Died in six months. Kodak no longer fixes the Pulse when it breaks. In fact, after speaking with them, I was told they no longer sell them. Anyway, we've had this Pix Star for maybe two years and have never had an issue with it. It's really more sophisticated than the Pulse was, but we simply use it as a photo frame where we can easily email a picture to it.
Does it receive ALL pictures I take with my phone or do I select which ones to send to frame? Feb 27, 2014
Only the pictures you select and email to the frame.. When you set up the frame you create an email address which is how you submit pictures to your frane
When viewing(slide show) of pictures from sd card inserted into the frame will pictures emailed to the frame be automatically added to current show Mar 23, 2014
Yes select Play All Frame Pictures from main menu or select Play download
what service provider does the frame email address use? I bought a Pan Digital only to find out they had gone out of business and so had the server that provided the email address. Oct 20, 2013
They use their owe server XXX@pixstar.com So yes if they go out of business and drop there server you are in the same boat. It still should work as a photo picture frame you just will not receive photos through the wifi connection
