Anyone ever buy or can recommend any digital frames?

Digital frames? Those electronic picture frames that cheap Chinese companies were dumping on us two years ago?

Nope. :)

LOL I really don't know anything about them at all, but do they make any good quality ones? Thinking about getting one, loading it up with pictures and giving it as a Christmas gift?

I've always figured they were impractical, power wise. Batteries would run out quickly on an LCD with a backlight. A cord would be hard to hide, or even impossible to run to many places you'd want to put a photo.

I can see the draw for older relatives, though. Simple enough for them to use & you can gift many photos at once.

They're still being sold?

Amazon could make a killing if they ever perfect color e-ink. Imagine a Kindle "Frame", no backlight needed and it doesn't do much else, so the battery lasts forever. And built-in Whispernet 3G to automatically pickup new photos that you send over whenever you want.

Yeah, see, that's more than a Kindle Fire, even. That makes no sense to me.

Yea, from the features it has, it might as well be a tablet. It has Facebook interface, email, Wi-Fi, and supports MP3 and mp4.

Some pretty cool features, but they're just beyond the need of the pictures

They may find themselves in a Tesla kind of situation. The hardware must cost X dollars, no matter what, so they need to justify it with other features (i.e. sports performance in the car).

In reality, Amazon can afford to do more in that space. Just like GM could if they really tried.

So searching for reviews of Digital Picture Frames online, then on YouTube I came across this review. What you think, 8, 9? maybe 10?
