The Good The photo frame is attractive and well built, with a solid metal back; it has a bright, sharp 8.4-inch display, 1GB SD memory card included, plus slots for virtually all memory card types, as well as a mini USB connection to connect digital cameras, thumbdrives, and computers (an adapter is included); touch-matting technology for navigating user interface.
The Bad No extra features, such as Wi-Fi, MP3, or video capability. It's also pricier than similarly sized models.
The Bottom Line While the Cagic 8.4-inch digital photo frame isn't laden with extra features, it gets high marks for design and build-quality.
Cagic Digital Photo Frame
Cagic is new to the digital photo frame arena and its claim to fame--or at least its marketing pitch--is that it's keeping things simple while making a frame that's more stylish and better constructed than your typical digital photo frame.
The company's first offering, an 8.4-inch diagonal model that comes in three finishes (birch, mahogany, and black), has been designed by "a European-trained interior stylist using quality materials and passionate attention to detail." Silly marketing phrases aside, the Cagic frame does live up to its billing as being well designed and stylish.
That 8.4-inch LCD (800x600 resolution) is surrounded by a rather hefty wooden frame that considerably extends the dimensions of the overall frame. The frame measures 10.1 inches high by 12 inches wide by 3.2 inches deep and weighs a little more than 4 pounds. Part of the reason it weighs that much and feels as solid as it does is that its support stand and the entire back of the frame are made of metal. That's rare.
