Folks: In shopping for a digital picture frame, I found the following:
- Vizio 19″ LCD television for $190 (native resolution 1366×768, USB port for thumb drive filled with JPEGs)
- Sony 10-Inch Digital Photo Frame for $220 (native resolution 1024×600)
Isn’t the LCD television a better value? Yet even in McMansions, where space is not an issue and sightlines to the digital picture frame could be quite long, I haven’t seen anyone use a small TV as a digital picture frame. What am I missing?
[Power consumption for the TV is higher, as you’d expect with so much more screen area; about 25 watts compared to 10-14 for a digital picture frame.]
