Final Thoughts

I think it's pretty safe to say that just like the LCD technology they are derived from, digital frames need a higher resolution to offers better picture quality. The more pixels the clearer the picture, which usually means the larger the frame. I thought the Rosewill 10-Inch LCD Photo Frame RDF-104 was a very attractive frame and my photos displayed clearer than I expected them to. I especially liked the two choices of outer frame that came with the unit. Overall I thought the Rosewill 10-Inch LCD Photo Frame RDF-104 was a great frame. The only suggestions I have would be to make the CF slot, and the MS/XD/MMC/SD slot able to pop out the cards. It can be difficult to pull the cards out yourself, because there isn't much to grab onto and the space is a little confined. Another suggestion would be to have the stand flip out from the back rather than having a separate piece. Things are too easy to loose when they aren't attached. Lastly, and this may just be my own personal quirk, I didn't particularly like the auto slideshow being the default selection for photo viewing. Especially since I had to go back in and change all the settings so I could view a single photo. Otherwise I found this frame to be as easy to use as the box indicated.

Conclusion

The frame comes in a very attractive package. The black box with a picture of the Rosewill 10-Inch LCD Photo Frame RDF-104 with the light wood frame shows the consumer exactly what you are purchasing and doesn't skimp on the description of what it can do. All of the specifications of the frame are on the back of the box so the consumer isn't left in the dark. The frame and all its accessories are well packed with lots of padding. If you were to drop the box it is extremely unlikely that anything would break. Once everything is removed from the box it's pretty obvious that hard plastic is a main component. So unless you plan on doing some batting practice in the house this frame probably won't break very easily. The screen and other delicate parts are unlikely to be scratched unless someone is very careless. The frame works as well as the manufacturer claims and it's also as easy to use. All that is needed is the right media card and you are ready to view all your favorite photos. At $149.00 with a $30.00 rebate on NewEgg.com this is a great value. You can't beat the price. So if you plan on giving it as a gift I don't think anyone would blame you for getting one for yourself.
