Question: Is this my best option and what add'l info should I consider?

I'm at loss as to which digital frame to purchase. I want very high quality pictures with a medium range of options that are relatively easy to use and would welcome suggestions. The very highest I would go in terms of cost is around $250. In addition, the X1000 seems to be very positively reviewed and is very tempting. However,
- Is another reviewer's statement about Sony discontinuing these frames valid?
- My HDTV is not a Sony. What is the minimum amount of additional items I would have to purchase in order to view on my tv?
