Ikea Ribba frames -- no glass
1

I was disappointed to find that Ikea's inexpensive 16x20" Ribba frames are no longer supplied with glass. Instead, they come with 'perspex' plastic. The price has dropped -- I believe the glass versions sold for $15 -- the plastic versions are $10.

Perhaps the decision was made based on safety concerns -- or maybe the cost of shipping and damage in transit. Whatever the reason, I'll take my business elsewhere. Not that Ikea could care.

Amazon offers what looks like the original 16x20 Ribba

and for only $60.

For ~$100 one could buy a 24" (diagonal) LED TV with a USB port and run a slide show from a memory stick.  Maybe print is dead... or in the process of being buried.
