You can find wood and glass photo frames relatively cheap, but they come with an issue: You can only display one picture at a time. What happens if you have thousands of digital photos taken on multiple devices? A digital photo frame is a logical answer, and we've rounded up the best of the best right here.
Nixplay's 9.7-inch smart photo frame features a beautiful 2K display with a 4:3 aspect ratio and beveled edges that looks great anywhere. Setup and management are easy with 8GB of built-in storage and a smart power cable doubling as a stand.
Great for most people
Sporting a slick aesthetic, Nixplay's standard 10.1-inch digital frame features a smart sensor that wakes the display when anyone comes close, saving energy. The Nixplay mobile app makes transferring photos a breeze, and the 800p screen looks great.
The Nix Lux adds a wooden style to digital frames that mostly have a black bezel. Its display makes pictures look natural, and you can control playlists with a remote or app. There's no Wi-Fi connection; using USB-A and SD card slots on the back instead.
The Aura Mason frame has a 4:3 aspect ratio and works in both landscape and portrait modes without needing an additional stand. The frame has unlimited free cloud storage, and the app allows easy setup and management.
Pix-Star's frame has a 4:3 aspect ratio suited to fit the standard photo size. It can play photos and videos, which look great on the big screen. It has 4GB of internal storage, Wi-Fi sharing, a USB port, and an SD card reader for those who prefer to skip the cloud.
If you'd rather not spend a ton on a digital photo frame, Aluratek's 8-inch option is still an excellent choice. It includes a USB port and SD card reader, and the 800x600 LCD displays your photos well. You don't get Wi-Fi support, but the price makes this an easy decision for many people.
Choosing the best digital photo frame
Many digital photo frames are on the market today, and choosing one can be tricky. For most people, however, the Nixplay smart frame with WiFi will deliver what's needed. It's a simpler version of the Nixplay 2K smart frame with its 9.7-inch display and 2K resolution. A beveled edge will fit just about anywhere, and motion sensors turn the display off when no one is around to see it.
The Aluratek is undoubtedly a far better choice if you'd rather not spend as much as our top pick commands. It costs a fraction of the price of the Nixplay, and while it won't quite match the resolution or size, it will do an excellent job of displaying your photos. These frames are perfect for displaying on one of our choices for best computer desks or hanging around the home, and they make it much easier to swap photos whenever you like.
