Installation has been hit and miss, and I still don't have a good idea of what all this thing can do. Basic documentation is really poor for a consumer box. Setup is difficult.

not bad used as a TV

by KDC on 12/27/2010

I bought this to replace an ageing 12" CRT tv that sat on my kitchen counter. After carefully reading all the scathing reviews I realized that if you just look at it as a TV and not much else, for $99.00 and free shipping, it's a pretty good deal. I used the ceiling mount to hang it under the cabinet. The mount works ok, the swivel joint closest to the cabinet mount wouldn't hold even after tightening but I just put the power brick behind it and let it brace against the wall. The other joints held just fine so the TV stays put. The auto-scan found all the channels up to #99 but couldn't recognize the higher numbered channels. It named all the HD channels "1008 uknown". As a work around, I put the HD channels in the "favorites" list. For $99.00, I'm willing to live with it. Depending on your cable source, your mileage may vary. The picture for all the TV channels is pretty good, certainly light years ahead of the CRT it replaced. Now, about the DPF features: I was able to easily configure the WiFi adapter to my network, even with the WPA2 encryption I use. Haven't been able to link it to my Picasaweb account though. I quickly installed the Yahoo widgets program on my laptop and linked to the Pandigital widget. No problem uploading pictures to the DPF folder as long as they are re-sized to 1280x724 and saved as jpg's. File name doesn't appear to matter. I tried saving a recipe as a jpg image and it worked just fine. However, it doesn't display text all that well; on the lower half of the screen, the text gets chopped up a little. Once again, I bought this unit with the understanding that the DPF features weren't that great. For $99.00, this a pretty decent HDTV for the kitchen but I wouldn't pay any more than that for it. PS: It shipped the same day I ordered and I received it in time for Christmas. Read More

Not for use as a kitchen cookbook

by A customer on 12/31/2010

I bought this to keep in my kitchen instead of having to print out recipes from the Internet. The wireless Internet ONLY goes to Picasa! You cannot go to your favorite network foodie sites. The included cookbook will not load. I could not bring up a single recipe. The touch panel is defective & only a couple of the 'touch' spots actually respond. I've sent for an RMA from the manufacturer to return it as you cannot return the item through buy.com, Buyer beware Read More
