Musical digital photo frames are in a category all their own. These frames are capable of playing music, connecting to the Internet, and, of course, displaying digital photos. While there are an abundance of musical photo frames on the market, finding one that has all the right details in all the right places is a different story.
Search for a frame that comes with a button-less touch-screen. While some frames attract fingerprints, those that are loaded with complex buttons are simply confusing. Choosing between wireless and wired is another consideration. Typically, wireless frames make for easier Internet connectivity. If you’re shopping for this novelty, you can expect to pay around $80 to $200 for a musical digital frame.
