Is there any Buying Guide or anyone with recommendations for digital picture frames for BF?

I was hoping for one also. Even list of resolutions would be nice. The wal-mart one is by far the cheapest, but my guess is that thew resolution is so low, pictures would be pixilated. Hopefully, someone smarter than me knows more about them.

just picked up some close out models from sears. 7" ones for $34 plus 10% off. Bought all they had for gifts. Couple that with some cheap thumb drives or SD cards and its perfect.

The Wal-Mart frame is actually on display on my wal-mart and seemed OK. After looking at the box, the screen is a resolution of 800 x 600. This seems to be on par with other models of the same size (8 inches) Am I correct in saying that? Looks like this frame has gone up on my list quite a bit over the last couple days. :lol:

I went to Amazon.com and looked up information on what to look for in a digital frame. You should always get one with high resolution. Also, I would get one with a good warranty, some only have 90 day warranties. I also looked on Target's website and read customers' reviews of different frames to see what people were happy with and what they complained about.

Personally, I have come to find that the ones by Pandigital and Kodak seem to be the best ones. However, I have not looked at the Walmart one yet and the price is really good. I guess I would just suggest getting one with a good warranty just in case it turns out to be a dud. Nothing is worse than giving a gift that craps out after you've given it!

I got a 7" digital frame on black Friday one or two years back. Still works perfectly.


I was thinking about getting a new one this year and this is what I will be looking at when selecting a newer one.

#1 the 7" screen is fine but a bigger one for a good price would be great.
#2 Pick a frame that you think looks good, you are going to be looking at it after all.
#3 Decide if you want the option to play videos that you record with your camera/camcorder and pick a frame that supports video. The frame I got doesn't support sound or video however it does have the wholes on the back where a speaker would go. I guess they may sell one that looks that same but with the internal parts that enable video playback for a higher price.
