Image for Portability is this Photo Frames game!

Many of the local stores have digital photo frames. I saw an ad in my local Family Dollar paper for a Digital Photo Frame for $10. I drove down and took a look.

The first thing you must realize is that this thing is SMALL. I didn't expect it to be so small but I bought it anyway, for $10 you can't go wrong right? The box claims that you can save up to 100 pictures on it, and your mileage may vary depending on the size of your pictures.

It comes with a small USB cable that you connect to the frame and then to your computer. Then it installs its own photo software which is quite easy to use. Basic funtions but works.

Now the features. The picture is on a 1.5 inch LCD Screen. It has 16mb of built in memory. It is compatible with Windows 2000, XP and Vista as well as Windows 7 even though the box does not say so. I have tested it on my Windows 7 box and it works great.

It also requires 2 AAA batteries.

I connected the unit added some pictures and it worked as advertised. It is not hi rez but would be smell enough to put on a desk at home or at the office. It does have a battery saver and the menu has backlight and brightness options. It can also double as a analog or digital clock which is one of the settings within the menu. You also can change the from single photo to slideshow and the amount of seconds between them.

The unit is not heavy at all and made out of plastic.

As a basic photo frame it does the job. If you want larger and more pictures and higher resolutions you may want to look elsewhere.
