I want to get rid of the big printer and just have a few digital picture frames in the house to display my latest and greatest.

I was looking at frames and apparently most of the big ones 15"+ are not very good and hard to see from an angle.

Sonys have very good review but the biggest are 10" and cost the same as a Toshiba 22" LCD TV.

Would it be mad to get 2-3 of those Toshiba TVs with USB sticks and use that to display my photos? Anyone doing something similar?

Hope you get an answer as I have wondered the same thing.

... I like prints... lol

Good digital frames are more expensive than they are worth unless you like changing the photos in your house every single day.

Photo frames cost ridiculous amounts of money. My wife got a very cheap small one for her 85yr old grandma, it still cost $40 and looks like it has VGA resolution. Anything that is decent to look at is $100, and that is just for ones that don't look like crap.

I think the LCD TV is not a bad idea, or maybe a 21" computer monitor for under $200 hooked up to some old computer.

I just hook up my laptop to my 52" HDTV and show a slideshow or whatever.

I looked into a similar idea in the past, but ended up not doing it. You need to factor in the cost of buying TV mounts and electrical receptacles installed behind the TV (unless you don't mind a cord showing below the TV).

I would recommend getting an LED TV since they are so thin and adding a picture frame around the TV to make it look more like a framed picture:
