Product Description

The future has arrived with the NIX Pro Series 8 inch frame. Killer styling from the design studio 'NIX of London' is coupled with the latest tech to deliver the ultimate in convenience, featuring a motion sensor that turns the frame on when you're nearby and off when you're not. It really couldn't be any more convenient whilst also saving an estimated 60% off your energy bill. This frame makes a perfect gift for technophobes, no longer will a frame sit around grandma's house unused! A rechargeable battery provides portability with 3hrs playback time. Stylish azure blue touch controls on an obsidian black frame provides for a modern yet elegant look complimenting most interior decors. The NIX frame is designed for the greatest convenience: grab the memory card from your camera (or USB flash drive), insert it into the frame and transfer your images directly onto the frames large 2GB internal memory. The frame will automatically resize your photos to the optimal size for the frame, allowing you to store as many as 8,000 images on the internal memory whilst maintaining the best resolution for your frame. Alternatively you can connect the frame directly to your PC or MAC and transfer movies, music or other images (note the frame does not resize files from a computer only directly from a memory card or USB flash drive). With the frame's portability and ability to play nearly all MP4 and .avi formats the frame can also function as a portable media player. The frame's motion sensor operates by switching the frame off when it senses no movement. You can set the frame to power off after sensing no movement for any period of time from 1 second through to 24 hrs.

I was hopeful that this digital picture frame would do everything that I needed it to do and it does, and more! I wanted a portable device that I could put on my coffee table that could run on rechargeable battery power, and it does. Plus I wanted a display that could display high resolution pictures and it does. The internal hard drive automatically lowers the resolution of images if you try to upload from a smart-card or USB or any other types of memory devices which allows the unit to store even more images. But, if you would rather have the full resolution of the high pixel images than more space, you can bypass the units automatically downsizing the resolution by connecting it directly to your mac or PC and uploading from there. That way, the images are exactly as they were on your computer hard drive. The motion sensor works great by turning the unit off automatically at the desired time length that you set and then turns back on once any movement is detected in front of it. However, when it starts back up, it starts the slideshow from the beginning/first picture again no matter where it was in the slideshow when it went to "sleep". I just keep my slideshow settings on random so the show is always different except for the first picture which is always the starting point...I simply just made it my favorite picture!
It also has a neat calendar/clock feature that will display a few pictures alongside the clock and calendar display - the images also change. All in all, the unit is great. It can last up to 4 hours on a single charge or you can have it directly plugged into the electrical socket. It also plays videos that I shot with my digital camera (after I converted them to mpeg4 on my computer).

Overall, the NIX 8" Hu-Motion is a good product, but there are some things about it which could be improved to make it better.

FIRST, THE GOOD.

The idea motion sensor is great. It's exactly what all digital frames should have to conserve power, since there's no point in having the frame on when no one is around to look at it. The options for how the motion sensor works are very detailed, giving you the option to have it stay on for anywhere from 1 second to 24 hours after it senses movement. The internal timer resets after it detects movement again.

The display is fairly crisp with brightness control. An image with an aspect ratio of 4:3 (most standard compact digital cameras) will fill the display completely. Any other aspect ratio will be scaled to fit the frame while maintaining it's aspect ratio. That is, you'll either see black bars on the tops or the sides, but the image will not be distorted. Files will be rotated appropriately depending on orientation of the frame due to the built-in accelerometer. Slide show time can be set to change the image at varying intervals from every 5 seconds to 1 day. Transition effects and random shuffling are possible. The frame is also capable of playing video with audio and MP3 files as background music. I can't comment on the quality of either since I didn't buy the frame for this use.

The physical look of the frame is very modern. This is a personal preference, but I like this much better than the faux wood of a lot of other frames out there. The control buttons are flush with the front frame and take on the lightest touch to use. They glow blue when the frame turns on and dim when inactive.

The frame 1.89 GB of useable internal storage space.

No other digital picture frame has the same features. Take into account the following: High res in a more appropriate 4:3 aspect ratio, programmable on/off times, front facing illuminated touch control, 2GB internal memory, rechargeable lithium ion battery, speakers, auto-rotate, remote control and finally motion sensing. Are you kidding me? No one else offers all of this in one frame for this price. If you're convinced just stop reading and hit "add-to-cart" now, otherwise read on.

High res at 4:3 aspect ratio is always more appropriate vs. widescreen because most if not all camera's take pictures at a 4:3 aspect ratio. To use a widescreen frame means your photo will be stretched to fit or will have black bars along the edges to fill in the screen. If you like the classic 4 x 6 picture then stay away from widescreen.

Programmable On/Off is just awesome and self explanatory (I hope).

Front facing controls are so important. It can be so frustrating finding the right buttons to push on the back of the device to see if you get the desired effect on the front of the device. But these controls are also illuminated and touch sensitive. So when the light dims the buttons almost disappear and do not distract from the pictures. Perfect.

2GB internal memory is awesome. I use a USB cord from my pc to this digital frame, transfer my pictures to the frame and then disconnect. There is really no need for any other memory cards or USB drives and transferring files from pc to frame with a USB cord keeps the pictures original without any re-sizing which in my opinion might make more space but degrade picture quality. This is just my opinion though.

Rechargeable lithium ion battery is very useful for show and tell.
