A Chicago Tribune article describes digital photo frames as slick but needlessly complicated.
â€œDid you ever think you would have a picture frame that comes with a remote control? Or that the remote would have 28 buttons?â€ wrote Eric Benderoff. He said these digital frames hold plenty of promise and are a great way to showcase photos that otherwise remain unseen on a computer or buried deep in a photo album, but they lack the simplicity of sliding a printed photo into a standard 4-by-6 frame.
Benderoff pointed out though that there was a lot to like about two 8-inch DPF, Pandigital and Digital Foci Image Moments, that he has been testing. Both showed great-looking photos. But he complains about other features like setting the clock right and the USB connection which sometimes fail to recognize the digital frame.
