-- note that the newest frame from NIX is now available on amazon, the WiFi enabled 'nixplay W08A. -- The X15B frame isready to play your pictures and videos straight out of the box with our easy to use ‘plug and play’ design. We've equipped it with a generous 4GB memory, 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. Packed with features, the X15B will play your photos (JPEG), videos (MPEG4 / .AVI) and music (MP3), with adjustable slide show settings and also a spilt screen mode to show four photos at once. Photos or videos can both be set to loop, or you can use the timer and alarm and wake up to your favourite memories each day! The timer settings allow you to set the screens up and never need to manually switch them on or off again, whilst never wasting electricity – perfect for commercial use. The X15B comes with a fold out stand and wall mount holes (VESA standard 75mm x 75mm) as standard. Sleek design coupled with plug & play simplicity, this frame is ideal for your home, as a gift or for use as a digital advertising screen.

Very stylish looking too.
You won't be disappointed.
There are 5 things that I would highly recommend though:
First of all, take all of your pictures using a horizontal (landscape) perspective or try to crop them to that shape. It's possible that you might have better luck getting your vertical pictures to not get cropped by the frame if you use a USB flash drive. Secondly, if you are going to load them directly into the frame's memory, select the order that you want them to be viewed in before loading them onto the frame. If not, you cannot change the order once it's on the frame. You can delete pics or add new ones (which will show up on the end of the slide show), but can't just switch them around for better sequencing. Although, if it's important, you could delete out all of the pictures and reinstall them in the desired order or create a new file with those same pictures in a better sequence. Thirdly, the stand seems a little flimsy considering the wt of the frame. It extends out easily from the back, but when I pick up the frame, even just to move it over a bit on the table, the stand drops back down inside of the frame, leaving the frame unsupported. At first, I barely caught the frame in time because the stand closed up every time I picked it up to move it. This happened several times. I'm planning on stuffing a piece of foam rubber in back to keep the stand fully extended so that my mother won't have this problem. Fourthly, place the frame in a spot that is below eye level from where you'll view it, such as a desk, coffee table, or end table. This is because the frame tilts back, making the photos look dark if you have the it at eye level or higher. Lastly, some of the features on the frame, require you to use the remote control, which at first seemed like it didn't work. It does work however if I try pointing it at different angles to the frame.
This might seem like a lot of issues, but after all of the complaints that I've read about on all sorts of digital frames, I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the pictures and how easy it was to download them onto this frame without any difficulty. Also, for my purposes, it was user friendly. And, it's the ideal gift for my mom --and what's more important than that!!!
Another issue is the auto on/off functions. You can set it to turn on at a set time, and off again later. I try to conserve energy so this is important to me and I do not want it running when no one is around to see it. It can only run on the same schedule every day though, no weekdays vs. weekends etc, and only one on and off event per day. Other digital picture frames I have seen support more detailed scheduling with the ability to run mornings and evenings but turn off in the middle of the day or use a different schedule on weekends, and this thing has calendar and clock functions so it has the hardware capability - they just chose not to make very good use of it.
Returned it. With a firmware update to address these problems, it could be a pretty good product, but I am not keeping it "at risk" as to whether Nix gets off its duff and issues one. Failing to display any recent pictures is kind of an important defect for a product whose entire raison d'etre is displaying pictures.
Wish I could point you to a better frame in this size range, but thus far I have not found one. Ironically, the smaller, less expensive frames (e.g. Pandigital) seem to be much more polished products than the larger ones.
UPDATE 2/14/2014. Decided to give the Nix X15B another try since there are few alternatives. The same problems were present of course. I upgraded firmware using a link sent from Nix customer support. The frame would still hang on particular photos for very long (30-45 second) periods, and the order was still not random. I renamed and resized all my photos using the FastStone batch processing software, so they all had consistent format, JPEG settings, and sequential names. This also did not fix the hanging or "non-random random" problems. Finally, I stopped using the internal memory and instead used a Class 10 SD card. This considerably improved the main issue of hanging for long periods on particular photos. As others have noted, the random is still less than random, but for me the pausing on particular photos was the main issue and this is now improved. Based on this I am increasing my rating to 3 stars. Nix still needs to provide much better firmware including more flexible and powerful scheduling and random functions. To this we can add a hardware issue - very slow internal memory - that limits the experience of using their digital frame.
I have only used it for images but the menu system is easy to use and seems to be very fast.
The only negative if you can call it that is that the frame is not wall mountable without purchase of a LCD tv wall mount, but for this size frame that will set you back less then $10.
This is my second 15" frame and I must say the NIX is way better then the other digital frames I own.
