Forget about wireless, audio or video capabilities, the most important things I want in a digital picture frame are size and resolution. But for some reason these have taken a back seat to other features people will rarely use. I mean what’s the point of owning an 8+ mega-pixel digital camera when you’re only going to show off your photos on a 640×480 pixel (or less) display?
Thankfully this Gigantor digital photo frame is a step in the right direction. At 15 inches in size it looks like a giant when compared to other frames on the market, and it has a half-decent resolution of 1024×768. I mean we can still do better, but this is a good start. Other features include support for 8 different types of memory cards, a USB port for flash drives and will play MP3 audio or MPEG 1, 2 and 4 video files.
The best part of the Gigantor digital photo frame though is the $249.99 price tag from ThinkGeek. At only $100 more than most other digital frames on the market, I’d definitely recommend spending the extra money.
