There's a rather significant difference between watching a slideshow on a TV and having a digital frame in some other more personal area of the home that just cycles through images in a subtle way. One does not replace the other.

Completely agree, we have two of the Nixplay frames, they are quite expensive but excellent image quality. The wifi ones enable you to upload photos on your computer and build up albums and playlists to send to your own frames or if you want those of family members. You get plenty of free storage so it's a useful back up for those photos. The latest one we bought is the 9.7" (same size as an iPad) in a 4:3 ratio. The size is perfect for us, we don't want it to to look like a small TV in the corner. We have a few thousand photos on the system now and have it on a 15 second cycle. it has a motion sensor so switches off when there's no-one around to save energy. It's a great way of showing off those photos that you don't see that often, especially with the demise of photo albums (does anyone still make those?)

We also make slideshows for TV showing (3:2 shots using Ken Burns to show in 16:9 works well) but they just get watched occasionally.
