NIX Digital Frame
With a High Resolution LED Backlit Display, enjoy all your (JPEG) photos with amazing detail and clarity. The Frame can also be used to play (MPEG-4 / AVI) videos. When the frame activates after sensing movement it can either play photos or videos. Equipped with a generous 4GB memory, it is housed in a very small and portable USB thumb drive so you can conveniently move photos from your computer to your frame. Combined with a simple, clear remote control, it's a breeze to get started.
For ultimate convenience, the frame comes with our trademarked 'Hu-Motion' Sensor that turns the frame on when you enter the room and off when you leave the room! Set the frame to switch off after sensing no movement in time increments from 5 minutes to 1 hour.

So why not five stars? Well that has to do with what I had to go through to get the frame to properly display the images. The resolution is 800 x 600 on the frame, so I understood that resizing the photos to be that size was something I had to do. Not a big deal, I just used a nice bulk resizing tool called Light Image Resizer. Its a free download and free to use for personal use. Made it really nice and easy. However when I initially loaded the photos, I found the frame wouldn't transition smoothly on all photos. The slideshow would freeze randomly on photos, taking longer than the 5s I had it set too. Sometimes upwards of 2 - 3 minutes to finally change pictures. I did a lot of research but NIX's own site has a blow off solution that basically says make sure its in the right format and check with the support site for advice, otherwise delete the picture. No thank you, especially since the photos were all taken with the same camera and resized the same way, so why would it pick and choose which to freeze on? I couldn't find any additional advice on their support site, perhaps I wasn't thorough enough, however after some poking around on other forums, I found the solution. Apparently the software on the frame likes the picture names on the memory card to be four characters long and a number. So 0001.jpg for example.Read more ›
Setup was easy. A few comments, however. The remote would be easier to use if it had the standard symbols for Play/Pause on it. The Time is set for 24 hour format, and can't be changed. This only impacts you if you use the calendar function. The Slideshow button on the remote is nice since it will take you right to the slideshow from whatever menu function you're in. Still, the ergonomics of the remote and menu system are lacking. I also haven't found a way to adjust the picture controls while watching an image. Instead, you need to exit to the menu, set the brightness/contrast/saturation, then return to the image. The factory settings are OK, but I brought down the brightness and contrast a step or two. The transitions are okay, but I noticed the fade (dissolve) transition is very choppy and stutters, making a poor transition. The other transitions for the photos are fine.
I use a 27" Mac monitor to process my images, and I am fussy about color balance, contrast, brightness, sharpness, etc. Nix does a decent job of displaying my images in a very pleasing manner. I notice a lack of punch in the reds and a softening toward orange. Skin tones look pretty natural.Read more ›
The main shortcoming is in image quality, specifically in color balance. Photos that display correctly on my ViewSonic monitor, two Samsung monitors, a Dell laptop, and the Digital Spectrum frame, show up with too much red on the Nix frame. There are controls for brightness, contrast, and saturation, but not for color balance. I tried changing brightness, contrast, and saturation, but the color imbalance remained. I would have to edit my entire photo collection of over 10,000 pictures by trial and error in order to get them to display correctly on the Nix. Also, the Nix has a narrower viewing angle within which the photos display with good brightness. One more thing -- the infra-red sensor that is supposed to turn on the frame from 6 feet away does not work reliably at a distance of more than 2 feet.
Update 11/14/13. Nix contacted me after seeing the review above and attempted to resolve the problem. We exchanged email messages, and I sent them photo files.Read more ›
