The Toshiba JournE air 801 is one of two launch products in it's new JournE series of digital picture frames. While in comparison to the JournE air 1000, it is more affordable, they are both fairly high end entries into the market. The 801 features an 8.4 inch LCD monitor which is in the middle ground for Digital Frames, certainly large enough for displaying pictures, but perhaps falling a little on the small side for some of it's periphery features, like using it's WiFi connection to extend the size of your computer monitor. Compounding this problem is the 801's relatively small internal memory, which means that unless you are making full use of it's WiFi connectivity to stream RSS photo feeds off of sites like Picaso and Flicker, you will be running into hardware limitations regularly. The air 801 is a stripped down version of it's older brother, but they stripped down the essentials like the screen size, and internal memory, while keeping the bells and whistles, like it's WiFi functionality and touch sensitive control system, making the air 801 fit much better into niches for advanced users than as a entry point for general consumers. If you have a specific task in mind for the air 801, it will save you money over the 1000, but if you want a general purpose digital photo display, your money may be better spent on the upgrade.
