Product Description

The NIX N' EASY X15A is an easy to use, extra-large plug and play frame. Featuring a huge Hi Resolution 15 inch LCD Active Matrix screen and a 1GB internal memory. The X15A is capable of playing photos (JPEG), video (MPEG-4 / .AVI) and music (MP3). A remote control with easy short cut buttons allows you to switch from playing photos to video to music with just a single touch of the remote. This frame is designed to be easy to use whilst packed with features. The Split screen display option will display four different photos simultaneously on the large screen. The X15A now also sports the new 'Combo' feature that allows you to place specifically chosen images and music together in a single folder, thus allowing you to essentially create a specific soundtrack for a specific slide show. Ideal for showing off that holiday you just got back from! Also featured is a shuffle display option and hook eyes for wall mounting. An excellent frame for presentations and commercial displays.

I needed an extra large digital photo frame that did video as well for a traveling display, and the NIX was certainly the right price, and had the right "functional" look for where I need it (no wood frame, and no artificial picture matting). Overall it is best frame I have yet used (I own two smaller and have done a lot of shopping). Brightness and color are excellent. Processing power seems up to any jpeg you might throw at it. Controls and navigation are the best I have seen yet.

The only drawback is that it DOES NOT play HD video, and, despite what the website and instructions say, I have not been able to get it to play any .mp4 file, or MPEG-4 coded file, at all...or for that matter, .avi which they also claim it will play. On the other hand, my 720p HD video plays fine when transcoded to 720x576 Letterbox style, MPEG-2, with MPEG-1, Layer 2 audio. (I use a free converter called "Free Video Converter by Extensoft"...quick and easy.) Once transcoded, the video looks very good! You would not guess it is no longer HD.

This really does, for me, take the place of a laptop and monitor for my travel. Excellent, and a great value.

I was very pleased with the picture produced by this product. It so beats out my 7" frame from another vendor.

I ran across two problems, one of which caused me to return the product.

The first problem, which may not be a problem for others, is that it was tricky to navigate the menus and select the pictures or desired viewing functions. There are buttons on the picture frame, but they are on the back, so unless you use braille stickers, you won't know which one you are pressing. The buttons are virtually useless. But it has a remote control, so no need to press the buttons. However, navigation even with a remote control is trickier than it should be. I like the touch screen models from Pandigital. A touch screen interface is SO much easier than buttons on the side or back of the frame or a remote control.

Still, I was pleased enough with the picture that I could get over having to monkey with the navigation system. I'm confident that I would figure it out eventually. What caused me to return the products is that it is VERY easy to destroy the internal memory. There is a warning in the manual that tells you NOT to unplug it from your computer while the connection is busy doing something. I didn't do that. I was copying pictures from my SD card when there was a brief power brownout. That did it. The internal memory was blown and didn't even show up as a menu option anymore. It's too easy to permanently lose the internal memory.

Not going to repeat the many useful comments already posted.
The pic-frame was a gift to my mom. Purchased at Amazon.

Major Pros:
(1) 15 inches make a difference: not just a 'reminder' like my other smaller pic-frame in the office;
(2) plays video, albeit not any and not easy.
The two were significant ones to me.

Cons:
(a) Interface: menu & operations is bad;
I had to figure out it all myself first and then to create an instruction with pictures embedded for my mom;
Look, the only unambiguous button on the remote is On/Off.
Trying it without the remote was a torture to me.

(b) Playing Video:
- no real specification from the manufacturer on what precisely the device is to support;
I found it as a bad humor - the manufacture's comment on the subject *in the FAQ section* of their web site.

Here is what worked here:
Picture&Photo:
- I used the free (excellent) FastStone Photo Resizer: [...]
on my computer to prepare the images originating from various: cameras, camcorders, phones and scanners;

I set up chronological folder hierarchy:
- photo
__ 2008
___ 2008-06
___ 2008-10
...
__ 2010
___ 2010-02-26
etc

Video:
- None of the MPEG4 codecs worked for Nix to display.
- The following two options worked:
-- DivX;
-- MPEG2;
Both were to be 720x480 to work (the sources were in NTSC).

I could not get decent display quality with DivX, although Nix was good to recognize and to play the videos.

The last digital frame I had did not provide a random shuffle when displaying the pictures. It also forced me to organize photos into folders no greater than 999 photos per folder. I really was not enjoying the 2500 photos that I wanted to display. I ordered NIX X15A and immediately liked the product. It showed up in simple packaging, was easy to set up and now I am enjoying all of my photos.

Bought myself a Nix 15 inch digital picture frame for Christmas because I have so many pictures setting around in the hard drive of my computer not being viewed. I love my new digital picture frame and I am very impressed with the build quality. While I have not yet downloaded pictures to the internal memory of the Nix I have been able to display all the pictures I have wanted to. I have done this by either just plugging in my SD cards where I keep photographs, or transfering photographs from my desktop to a USB thumbdrive and just plugging it into the back of the Nix. I have found the remote and the control setup to be a little clunky and less then intuitive, but I managed to figure most things out. For example I set mine up for 15 seconds and have tried all three screen layouts, but like the full scree display. I even got the calendar and the time set up after spending a little time with the manual. I have been a little reluctant to load pictures directly to the internal drive because of the problems other reviewers have outlined about power outages. I will do it when I map out what I want to put on it however. I even plugged the mini SD card from my Cell Phone into an SD adaptor and played it on the NIX with no problems. Spending the time to research digital picture frames online and finally choosing the 15 inch Nix was well worth it. The size and picture quality make this picture frame worth it.
Also I was impressed with the quality of the stand and how it is attached. I chose to hang my Nix on the wall for display and that works very well too.
