Discover The Best Digital Picture Frames of September, 2018 – Our Top 5 Review Guide

Our last update to this page was

Displayed in the best light . . . we review the Top 5 Best Selling Digital Photo Frames!

Boring picture frames are so yesterday. Brilliant digital picture frames, on the other hand, allow the use of a memory card or a USB drive to create instant slide shows displaying all your family photos, vacation pics or whatever you wish. Some frames can even add video and audio playback, Wi-Fi or Bluetooth.

Here are a few pointers of what to look for when buying a digital picture frame;

  • Always choose the best resolution – 640 x 480 pixels or higher
  • Screen size is usually 7 – 10 inches
  • Aspect ratio – this describes the proportional relationship between its width and its height. The most common are 4:3, 16:9, or 15:9

So, here’s our take of the best-selling digital frames of September, 2018:

1) NIX Advance Digital Photo & HD Video Frame


With a variety of option available, we opted for the 8” widescreen.

This model looks smart, well made, and comes with batteries – brilliant!

What We Like

The programmable motion sensor is a great idea, and it can be set to switch off after 1 minute up to 1 hour, once the room is vacated. This feature can, of course, be disabled.

The picture quality is great once you’ve got the contrast, brightness and so on settings to your liking, while the slideshow scrolls smoothly and at a perfect speed (which is adjustable).

What Needs Improving

It would be great if it came with a memory card, but maybe we’re asking just too much there. Other than that, our main complaint is that the photos are not displayed in the order we put them onto the drive; while this isn’t an issue for us trying out the Nix, it might be for you.

9.9Expert Score
The Final Verdict

This is a smart, sophisticated digital frame, with smooth lines and great display functions. Go on, treat yourself!

2) Pix-Star Digital Photo Frame


Each Pix-Star frame comes with a free online account with unlimited storage for your photos; they also provide an email account specifically for your frame, allowing others to send photos, GIFS etc directly to your frame.

The actual frame isn’t as nice as some of the others tested; but that didn’t deter us from adoring this digital photo frame.

What We Like

We all like the idea of the dedicated email account, and think it turns this from a fairly mundane picture frame into an excellent gift idea.

The image quality and scrolling are excellent, as are the speakers, and the interface is simple and very user friendly.

What Needs Improving

Pix-Star have let themselves down with the finish on this digital frame, but overall, that’s a minor point.

9.2Expert Score
The Final Verdict

First impressions count and we sure were impressed with this digital picture frame. Make sure that your images are in high resolution to really make the most of it. Perfect for the whole family to enjoy.

3) TENKER Digital Photo Frame 


This frame feels a bit lightweight, but we like the plain unadorned look.

What We Like

For the price, this is a great digital picture frame to go for – simple to set up, with clear resolution and good image quality, both on stills and video.

What Needs Improving

Take care! This is a delicate photo frame so it’s prone to toppling over. All you need to do is to place it thoughtfully to keep it safe.

8.9Expert Score
The Final Verdict

Because of the lack of stability on a surface, hanging this frame would be a good option. All in all, this is a good frame at a good price.

4) APESIN Digital Photo Frame


This is a solid looking frame, and arrived really nicely packaged, with very clear instructions.

What We Like

The motion sensor is brilliant – very responsive and it didn’t get flummoxed by us testing it to the nth degree.

The image resolution, and slideshow are both excellent, and it’s so easy to use.

What Needs Improving

The branding is a little distracting, but other than that, we are struggling to find much wrong with this frame. A very decent buy given the price.

8.5Expert Score
The Final Verdict

We really like this – it’s simple to use, great picture quality and has some really useful features that all work well. Very good price.

5) Aluratek Digital Photo Frame


The featured ‘quality wood frame’, whilst looking and feeling really nice, appears to be plastic, but we like the fact that it’s quite wide and ‘framey’ looking.

The instructions seem to be fairly straightforward.

What We Like

Aluratek have made a nice picture frame for the price – the image quality is good, video playback works well, and the slideshow scrolls nicely.

What Needs Improving

Okay, here goes – there is no built in memory, battery, no touch screen and no remote control……and breathe!

So, despite the image quality being great, you have to have your card plugged in all the time, and wires going to the frame. If you’re looking for a digital photo frame that’s nice and simple, this will do the trick.

8.4Expert Score
The Final Verdict

Another good digital frame that is gentle on the purse strings. If you want something cheap and cheerful, get this.
