Conclusion: The digital picture frame market is quite cluttered at this price point and frame size. It’s important for buyers to know what’s good and what’s going to disappoint before dropping their cash on a new digital frame. We feel comfortable recommending the Nextar N3-505 for a few reasons. The display and being able to power the unit over USB are high points, enough to differentiate Nextar’s effort from most of the other value-based options.
Pros: Good display for the price, Can be powered over a computer’s USB port, Classic design blends well with most environments
Cons: Can’t transfer images to internal memory via computer
