Digital Photo Frame review

Posted by: Ilse Jurrien Tuesday 22nd, August 2006

There is a new generation digital photo frames out there but THIS ONE has it all! We received the SUN SG8 photo frame which is a digital multimedia frame that plays photo, MP3, MPEG1/2/4 and DviX format. Trying to decide between purchasing a digital picture frame, video viewer or desktop MP3 player? Stop trying, because the SUN SG8 photo frame is the solution you are looking for. The Memory Frame Personal Media Player is a digital photo album, MP3 player and video player all in one. With its high-resolution, bright 8 inch TFT screen, you'll be able to view digital photos and video clips in vivid color. If you own a digital camera or cameraphone, this is one cool accessory that is a must have!
