As with all the products I�ve received from Geeks.com, the Digital Photo Frame arrived well-packaged in a large cardboard box.The outside of the package was rather plain; simply the name of the brand on two sides.

Opening the package, the first thing I noticed was how well-packaged the frame was; the frame itself was encased in a custom air-bubbled container that provided more than adequate protection (I know, it�s weird to be impressed by a container).Along with the photo frame itself, the package came with a remote control, a non-slip pad, AC adapter, video output cable, and instruction manual.

At 7 inches, the photo frame is a good size; not too big for a desk or mantle, yet large enough so that you can see the photos.Considering that most photo prints are 4 x 6 inches, the size shouldn�t be a problem for most applications.The frame has a simple yet nice black glossy border with a thin clear edge.

All of the memory card slots and controls can be accessed from the top of the frame, away from plain view.The frame accepts a wide variety of flash media, but one feature I thought was missing was the ability to accept was a USB flash drive.Also, the frame has no on-board memory; all the storage comes from external memory cards that are not included.
