Visitors: 243

The following will take you through 10 must-know things before you buy digital frames.

1. Different digital photo frame use different type of media cards, some single function frames are only designed for SD cards, so it's a good idea to consider what type of memory a frame uses before you buy.

2. Make sure the resolution and the screen size are big enough to show off your photos. The frame will auto resize your image to the size that would best fit the display resolution.

3. The number of colors the screen can render play crucial role in quality, the more the better, but don't expect the photos to look like magazines. . .

4. Don't buy a frame that builds in internal memory. A similar model which with no internal memory will save you quite a few dollars.

5. What features do you need? A frame that not only display the images, but also video, audio? Some of these products can only display pictures.

6. Viewing angles of a LCD screen are very important. Wide viewing angles make the LCDs suitable for a large room where all the views can watch the pictures with uniform picture quality. The higher it is, the better.

7. If you had the choice of a frame that was the best showing, but had no Remote Control capability, would you buy it? With a remote control, you can turn on/off and enjoy your photo from anywhere in the house. Not all of them come with the remote control.

8. Wall Mounted? A wall mounted display is an effective way of displaying your photo/video in your home/office/public without taking up a great deal of floor space to do it.

9. Don't leave your digital picture frame running 24 hours a day. Non-stop running can lead to overheating.

10. It's important to keep an eye on the panel of the LCD. Some bad guys will pass off analog panel as digital panel and sell it at high price. Don't be fooled!
