Pix-Star 8″ Wifi Frame Review

I recently had the chance to review a Pix-Star 8″ FotoConnect Digital Photo Frame with Wifi (PXT8W002).

I have to say it is the most web-friendly digital frame I’ve ever come across, and I’m excited to continue experimenting with it, discovering new features. For now however, here’s my initial review.

    Jonathan,

    Nice review! I like the part about not being slave to your computer.

    Can you mention that they are available on Our Home Spaces website and Amazon next time.

    Looking forward to part 2 of this video.

    Thanks, Jan

    Great review! Learned more from that than the manufacturer’s description.

    I am looking for a new wifi frame for my non-techie elderly parents, to send them photos of kids and grandkids without any bother to them.

    This one looks much better than a eStarling/Seeframe frame (which we have), which also displays emailed/RSS photos but is incredibly difficult to set up — you even need the right brand of wifi router! It’s also badly built: no remote, the controls are on the back, so you can’t fix it to the wall; and the stand falls off if you’re not careful (so they dropped it when moving it and it broke).

    Look forward to your hints on using it!

    Hi Phil, yeah, this frame is definitely easy to use and setup. I’ll try to get to the second part of the review soon 😉

    very interested in this frame to give to my parents overseas. haven’t heard too many good reviews of other wireless frames, looking forward to seeing a more in depth review of the frame on here!

    me again, wondering if when you email a picture to the frame – what does the recipient have to do? if the frame is turned on, will the frame just appear? or do they have to accept the picture?

    Hi Hannah – the recipient is the frame; once it is setup to receive images, you don’t have to do anything. They will just be automatically displayed in the frame.
