Product Description

(please note there is now a newer X08D version available). Why bother turning your frame on and off all the time? Featuring an inbuilt motion sensor, the frame will turn itself on when it senses any motion and off again when it senses no motion. This frame is perfect for parents and grandparents who just want a frame that works, without the hassle of having to actually operate it. As well as it's ease of use; the frame features a high resolution SVGA screen with LED backlighting. Importantly the frame will also play your MPEG-4 / .AVI video, JPEG photos and MP3 music. The motion sensor is very easily set up and can be set to switch off after sensing no movement in time increments from 30 seconds to 1 hour. When the frame activates after sensing movement it can play either your photos (from where it left off in the slideshow), videos or music. The choice is yours. Additional features include an auto rotate sensor that flips your photos 90 degrees when you physically rotate the frame. This optimizes the use of the screen for your portrait (vertical) photos. Ideal for showing off that holiday you just got back from! Remember that connecting the frame to external speakers via the audio jack allows for an even richer sound experience. Enjoy Peace of mind with a full manufacturers 1 year warranty.

Works great and the motion sensor is a great feature.
Derrick
The screen started freezing, the pictures stopped changing and after multiple power cycles I could not get the device to operate properly.

It looks good, the quality is very nice, and it was very easy to use.

Amazon's introductory prices for these NIX digital frames were enough in themselves to catch my attention. I started with the 7" model and, though my expectations were not high, sensed that the combination of the extra wide dimensions (necessitating constant repositioning of the frame) and lackluster resolution would result in my finding little if any use for the frame. NIX customer support was so helpful that I decided to stay with the brand but to move up to this 8" model. It's all the difference in the world and well worth the extra expense. First, the 4:3 dimensions of this frame assure that you can load it, start it, and forget it. No need to turn the frame on its long end to fill the frame for every vertically-oriented image. Even with auto rotation and split screen features, the extra wide (16:9) screens, or aspect ratios, of the lower-priced NIX and some of the other "stretched" frames introduce problems because of the different orientations of shots and the cropped or distorted shapes that frequently ensue upon tweaking an image to fill a frame. But there's also the question of picture quality, especially definition.

The picture of the 8" model, I'm convinced, has sharper definition and brighter, more pleasing colors--very close, if not equal, to a high-definition computer screen. Additionally, the slide show and transitions are performing more consistently, with the photos even showing more regularly in their correct--horizontal or vertical--orientation. And the size of the frame is such that a vertical photo, even though appearing in a frame that's slightly wider than it is high, does not look disproportionate. In fact, with this frame it's highly unlikely you'll turn the frame vertically to activate its "automatic orientation" feature.

I was looking for a digital frame for my husbands office and decided on the NIX x08A frame based on the affordable price. It was $10 dollars less than a Kodak digital photo frame (Kodak Easyshare P730m) with the added capability of playing videos and music.

Pros:
- Frame was delivered super fast (two days) and shipping was free.
- Setups between two frames is fairly easy when using a usb flash drive. The NIX does have a remote which helps to keep fingerprints off frame. The Kodak menu is a bit more sophisticated and pretty to look at.
- I like the built in frame stand on the NIX.
-Sound is decent when playing videos. Did not try playing music on this frame.

Cons:
-The screen quality was not as vibrant as the Kodak EasyShare. I tried adjusting the contrast and brightness but the Kodak frame was just superior straight out of box.
-The buttons on the back of frame is a bit sticky and I had to push really hard before it responded.
- USB flash drive not hidden by frame. I used a 1" flash drive and it was still visible from the front of frame.

Overall, the frame is decent for the price.

If you are purchasing this for someone who would be confused by a remote with 18 buttons, I found the following to work well. 1. Go to the setup mode and change three of the default options. First, it is set in a mode that does not show the complete picture. You need to change that to the mode that fits the entire picture into the frame. Sorry, but I do not have the frame in front of me to tell you exactly what the options are called, but it comes set in a mode called something like "optimum" and you change it to one that says something like fit frame. Next, change the transition mode to a simple fade. It comes set for a "show off" variety of all available transitions which I find distracting. Finally, change the slide show mode so that it plays straight through in order. Also put all of the photos in the root directory of the SD card so that they do not have to worry about folders.
After you have done this, there is only one button they need to press to start the show and turn the frame on or off - the top button on the back of the frame. I marked it with orange tape. After doing this, keep the remote and give them only the frame with SD card inserted. This worked quite well for my 90-year-old mother and she thoroughly enjoyed the frame. All of her children and grandchildren contributed pictures and our family computer geek put them on a single SD card.
The only thing of significance that this frame lacks is cordless capability; so that it must be plugged in for use. Some other frames come with built in rechargeable batteries that will run them for a couple of hours.

I bought this product as a gift for my mother and was very excited about it. I transferred 500 photos to the memory card and turned on NIX digital photo frame. First of all, the product is super slow. It takes really long time to go from one function to another. Second, when you choose in the settings the photos to be shown in sequence, the program follows its own understanding of sequence and the photos show up in a random order. The last and the most disappointing thing is that one photo gets stuck and it is shown over and over again, pretty much repeating itself after 2 or 3 photos and sometimes it repeats itself right after it comes up!! I went to NIX website and I found the same issue addressed in Q&As, which means it's a very common problem. They say all the photos must be JPEG format and all my photos are. The only thing they recommend is to delete the photo that repeats itself. After I did that, however, another photo started to repeats itself!! After numerous tries and deleting a number of repeating photos I decided it's not worth my headache and I am returning this product. I am extremely disappointed.
