Advantages: Hunderds of photos in one place
Disadvantages: No memory
This digital photo frame from ALBA isn't the cheapest on the market but it isn't the most expensive either. I got mine in Argos for less than £30
The thing I liked about this one over others was the fact that the actual frame surrounding the screen was nice and thin. Most of these digital picture frames have a chunky black border around the screen. Seeing that the screen size itself was only 7 inches, having almost no frame makes the screen and in turn the pictures look bigger.
It has a 16:10 screen ratio. This means all photos are displayed wide screen mode. So it's important to adjust the photos on your computer before saving them on to the memory card or USB stick as you want the picture to fill the screen. There is no internal memory in this frame. And there are no memory cards or USB sticks supplied with It. So it's a nice thought to buy one or the other if you are giving this as a gift.
It has some basic features such as slide shows (this means you can have lots of photos displayed one at a time for an allotted amount of time, instead of just the one photo)
There is also a rotate option (this can be used when the picture is displayed incorrectly on the screen)
And a pause option if you see a photo you would like to display for longer.
The body of the frame is black plastic and the screen is soft to the touch, not glass. With a bright adjustable picture and a screen resolution of 450 x 234.
The only thing I don't like about this frame is the fact that you have an ugly black cord hanging from it. So if you can hide the wire behind something it will look much better.
Mains adaptor is included. And the overall size is H18, W11.6, D2.6cm. And the weight is 800g.
As I said at the beginning this isn't the most expensive, so it isn't the best available.
But it does a good job and it does make a thoughtful gift for a loved one.
Summary: Nice and small with hundreds of photos.
