Looking for a digital display frame that uses metadata to organize and filter pics. [View all]

I've finally gotten around to getting the old photos digitized, and I have added metadata to my files, including Keywords, Create Date, Source, Description (caption), etc.

I'd like to use my 1 Tb USB drive to load them onto a photo display frame, and to be able to organize them in groups (not sure of the nomenclature here, some devices call them slide shows, some use playlist, some say albums?) to display. Some pics would be in more than one group, but I don't want to have to store them in two locations or folders.

What I don't want is to have any kind of connection to the internet or WiFi REQUIRED. (I know most of them are likely to have WiFi options, apparently people love exposing their image files to anyone who might be interested in hacking them via the toobz. Not my thing. So if there's such an option I want to be free not to use it and still have the device function properly.)

Other preferences would be to have controls on the device itself as buttons or a touchscreen, rather than to need a remote control (I can't keep track of all the remote controls I already have,) and to have some native storage space on the device so that I don't have to leave the USB drive plugged into it all the time. I prefer direct AC connection but wouldn't mind AC and battery backup.

Any recommendations? Suggestions?
