Digital Photo Frames Make Great Gifts. We Tell You Which is Best

By Andrew Eisner

This holiday season, buyers are looking for cool electronic gifts but are cautiously watching their spending. We think digital photo frames make a great addition to anyone's desk or mantle without putting a huge dent in your wallet. Retrevo looked at digital photo frame user reviews, expert reviews, features and prices and offers these recommendations.

Features to Look For

Higher resolution screens like the 800 x 600 pixel screens in some of the 8 inch frames we recommend offer great looking images. WiFi adds a little complexity to the setup process especially if you have a protected network but it makes it easy to load photo from any computer in your house. The challenge is how to get those photos into Grandma's photo frame. Many frames can play MP3 files on built-in speakers so you can play a soundtrack with your picture show. We wonder how often it gets used but why not have it. Some players can also support QuickTime, AVI, and MPEG-1 and MPEG-4 video files so you can play movies on your picture frame.
