Description: You can probably find cheaper digital photo frames with larger screen real estates, but you won't find one as many features. The D-Link DSM-210 provides a 10-inch display with 800x480 resolution and comes with 1 GB of on-board memory, a USB flash drive port and a 3-in-1 card reader (SD, MMC and Memory Stick supported) for loading photos locally for display. Plus, through the built-in 802.11g wireless connection, users can access a wealth of online photo and information channels via the FrameChannel.com site.

I used the FrameChannel site to access my Flickr feed and display my latest photos on the frame. There was no need to copy the files a second time to the device, I just pulled them off the Web via my home network. D-Link has added support for WPA-2 encryption, so it should work in just about any home network security setup and even some office environments.

Also, there's a motion detector that will turn off the frame when no one is the room – a nice energy-saving feature for those prone to forgetting to turn off frames for the night.
