Why Use a Digital Photo Frame?

You may have noticed that digital photo frames are becoming a permanent fixture in many households, as more and more people proudly display a digital photo frame for others to see. Although selecting the frame is a crucial part of owning a digital photo frame, the fun comes seeing all your favorite pictures appear in the frame. Although you can set your picture frame to display only one photo at a time, most people put their frames on slideshow mode. This mode allows you to view picture after picture for hundreds of memories and smiles. So besides fun, why do people use digital photo frames? Digital photo frames allow you to display more pictures at a high resolution, plus they are a fabulous way to decorate and make a statement.

Digital Photo Frames: What to Look For

Digital photo frames come in many colors, sizes and resolutions. We have reviewed the top photo frames available today. In our product reviews you will find why each photo frame is unique and discover what makes them all the best in their category. We ranked each product in the following areas:

Features
The features ranking comes from looking at what the frame has to offer. Some of the features we reviewed include: image formats, remote control, internal memory, resolution and aspect ratio. The wider the variety of features, the more the frame will fit a variety of needs. So in addition to making sure each frame provides the highest resolution and the best aspect ratio, we found frames with several other features that you may not be able to go without.

Design
If you're shopping for a digital photo frame, you may already have a particular use in mind – so it’s important to consider its design. Do you want to display your photos in portrait or landscape views? What about in both? Would you like a frame that has a stand or one that is only able to hang on the wall? Do you want it to be powered by batteries or plug into the wall? There are plenty of features to take into consideration, and these are the elements we looked at in the design category. If the frame provided more options, it received a higher ranking. In addition to design options, this category takes into consideration the durability and the overall design of each frame.

Ease of Use
Overall, the usability score will tell you how simple and easy to use the frame is. For example, while reviewing the frames, we found some are easy to load pictures on to, and some have a PC connection and internal memory while others provide only card reading capabilities.

Help & Support
We believe that a product is only as good as the manufacturer who built it. The credibility of a company is reflected in everything they do and everything they produce. We rank the help and support team that each company provides to let you know whether or not they stand by their word. We look at things like their contact options, their product warranties and their manuals. We want you to receive the best product possible, and that includes every aspect.

Displaying all your favorite photos could overwhelm every wall in your home. But digital photo frames allow you to display all your photos in one place. Most of these frames are easy to use, and they offer a variety of options. Check out our reviews to find the best digital picture frame for you and your home.
