HP df820

With its real wood, the 7-inch df820 ( ) looks about as close to a traditional picture frame as you can get.

Ipevo Kaleido R7

The Kaleido R7 ( ) is beautifully designed, even if it doesn’t particularly resemble a picture frame. The 7-inch widescreen can rotate on its solid, heavyweight stand.

Isabella Products Vizit

Some digital photo frames offer so much functionality that photo sharing becomes an ordeal for some, but the 10-inch Vizit ( ) minimizes the frills. You can arrange to authorize friends and family members to send photos directly from their e-mail accounts or mobile phones to the Vizit, using the AT&T network. Read the full review.
