Since it's gadget gift month, we thought we would let you know about a pretty good digital picture frame from CEIVA that has Wi-Fi and phone connectivity, a built-in memory card reader, and a max resolution of 1280 x 960. Is it fit to hold your precious memories? You'll see.
Look below the cut for the written review from Attack of the Show.
What You Need to Know
- It connects wirelessly or wired, you're going through a lot of steps
- Everything is explained clearly, but navigation is tough using the buttons on the bottom
- For instance, if you wanted to set up your Wi-Fi connection, you go to menu, connection settings, wireless settings, set up wireless, and then enter your password
- This is definitely not "easy" for anyone to set up
- All aspects of the frame can be maintained directly from the Ceiva website
- You can upload pictures from your hard drive or you can e-mail photos to an e-mail address specific to your frame
- It then drops in to your incoming queue, and the next time the frame syncs with the site your pictures are added
- You can even customize pictures by adding text, cropping, rotating, etc.
- There are tons more features like ordering prints, adding channels for news and weather, etc.
- The point is, you can set this up at your parents house and add content from anywhere you have an internet connection, in addition to displaying from a memory card
- In the frame, everything looks pretty good
- It only displays at a max resolution of 1280 x 960, so it will automatically resize anything larger than that
- It doesn't look any better than you'd expect, but it does the job
- The frame also has swappable faceplates
- There is normally a yearly fee of $100 in addition to the cost of the frame, but Ceiva is running a deal where you get a year of service, plus the frame for only $200
