Is a Large Digital Frame What’s Missing from Your Home?


Does the large digital frame use a touchscreen?

Typically speaking, the large digital frame doesn’t use a touchscreen display. Using a touch panel on any frame larger than 8-inches gets significantly more expensive – leading to sacrifices being made to features or performance to keep the frame’s price competitive.

Touch displays are rarely done well on digital frames. They’re usually slow, unresponsive, and finicky. They’re prone to scratching and being damaged by minor knocks and falls – especially if you have kids or pets. Touchscreen digital frames are less durable in the long run, less versatile due to sacrificed features, more expensive, and often hard for elderly users to get the hang of.

Top digital frames like the Pix-Star remove the need for a touchscreen by offering comprehensive remote configuration, a handheld remote, and interfaces that are quick and easy to navigate for everyone in the family! We don’t recommend getting a touchscreen digital frame as they’re rarely worth the sacrifices they make to their feature set, functions, longevity, and real-world performance.

Can I use a large digital frame to display art?

Using a large digital frame to display art and professional photographs is an excellent choice for a home studio or growing gallery.

Should a large digital frame be wall-mounted?

Wall-mounting a large digital frame is a great idea for a large room, well-lit spaces, home studios, galleries, etc. That being said, most of the best large digital frames come with an attachable stand that lets you rest the frame on flat surfaces. Pix-Star’s attachable stand does a great job at hiding the power inlet cable while offering a robust mount – achieving a minimalistic look without sacrificing sturdiness (a common problem).

There’s also a handheld remote that lets you control the frame from within the same room.
