Digital Picture Frames Question

    Anyone out there own a digital picture frame? You know the kind where you upload digital photos and it works as a slideshow?

    I want to buy one for my parents for Christmas, but I'm wondering who makes the best one? How big (size and memory) do I need?

    Anyone have thoughts or reviews?

    Good question. I want to get one for the wife for Christmas. Any thoughts welcome.

    I bought my parents one last year. Can't remember what size or brand or whatever, but it pulled pictures from a small USB flash drive that I had to buy separately.

    Best thing I did before I gave it was open it up, learn how to use it, write detailed and funny directions for my parents on how to use it, and load up that USB drive with a bunch of photos of me and my brother.

    The USB drive was key, because my parents know how to use one of those. I don't think they would have understood how to connect the frame to their computer and deal with any software that would have been needed to transfer photos.

    You can usually get a good one about $100. That should get you an 8" frame.

    Most of them either upload pics from your PC or they have a smartcard reader.

    The number of pics varies based on the pics resolution.

    Some also have MP3 capabilities. So if you want, you can play the music from your wedding as background music on a frame displaying images from your wedding.

    Wal-Mart has them near the jewelry counter, Pete. Go check there.

    Zing! Awesome.

    And no, they are sold at the photo lab in Wal-Marts. I've looked.
