Digital Picture Frames vs. PSP

I've always wanted digital photo/picture frames to become more mainstream.  It seemed so logical to me.

It looks like prices are really dropping and they aren't requiring those silly subscription service models. Here is a summary of some ads I saw in the Sunday paper:

  • Linens-N-Things: $99.99 with a 5.6" LCD screen, works with digital media cards (#NV-560, LNT.COM, #18976001)
  • Best Buy: Westinghouse 8" LCD Screen for $229.99
  • Ritz Camera: PhotoShare 7" LCD; supports Mac&PC downloads or memory card for $99.99
  • Ritz Camera: 7" Digital Photo Frame with MP3 player (built-in speakers, earphone jack, video output, plus remote control) for $199.99.  Also supports media cards like: SD, MMC, Memory Stick, Memory Stick Pro, Microdrive, and CF Memory
  • 8" Memoryvue Digital Photo Frame for $199.99 (after rebates).  Supports CF, SD, MMC, and Memory Stick cards.  Also plays MP3s.

An alternative should be noted that if you are going to spend ~$200, you might want to pick up a Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP). They are now selling for $199.99.  It seems to be the biggest bang for $200 out there.

Hi Steve,

Looks like you've done a lot of research on digital frames. We got one for my parents last year for Christmas and they love it. There's another frame out there right now that allows wireless uploading which is pretty darn cool. It's by CEIVA. If you want to see it in action with Santa, here's a link
