Using the two holes on the back, it's possible to mount the DreamScreen on a wall. Without an easy way to hide the dangling power adapter cord, most will probably opt to attach the included metal stand, which offers sturdy support.

With a main menu that touts features such as Facebook, Pandora, videos, music, Internet radio, and more, the DreamScreen looks like an antidote to the plague of boring digital photo frames. We applaud the effort, but unfortunately, most of the features aren't worth your time.

The left side of the DreamScreen includes two memory card slots capable of accepting nine formats: SD, SDHC, MMC, MemoryStick, MemoryStick Pro, xD, CF I, CF II, and MD. The bottom edge includes a socket for the included (and necessary) power adapter.

A remote control is also included, which tucks into a little cubby hole on the top when you don't need it. The remote offers buttons for menu navigation, power, volume, and even a dedicated button for slideshow mode. It's extremely handy, because the DreamScreen is--surprisingly--not a touch-screen device. You're either using the remote, or these controls at the bottom of the screen that light up only when needed. The upshot is that you're less likely to smudge the screen this way, since you're never touching it. The bummer is that any time you have to enter a name or password, you have to use arrow and enter keys to get things done.
