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. I used a bulk renaming tool that I was able to download (free as well, worked beautifully) and sequenced all of the names on the memory stick accordingly. Now the frame slideshow works perfectly.
So, given what I had to do to figure that out, I had to drop it a star. NIX's instructions don't include any recommendations on picture formatting other than stating that it must be JPEG only. Otherwise I'm very happy with the frame. I just hope I don't need to deal with any additional support questions.
So after using the frame for a few days, I've noticed that the motion sensor feature on my frame doesn't appear to function at all. It doesn't matter what setting I choose time wise, the frame never shuts off. I'm probably going to look into replacing it under warranty. I'm hoping its just an issue with the one we received.
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. Sharpness and detail is pretty good, considering you'll be viewing these photos from at least a few feet away. All in all, I'm impressed with the quality. It should be just fine for all but the most critical eye.
Processing tip: Rather than 'dump' your images over to the USB flash drive, use some software that lets you export the photos in JPEG format, having 800 x 600 pixels, and 72 dpi. This way, you get just the pixels you need to fill the screen, and you'll fit more photos on the drive.
I haven't tested the movie feature of this frame, although I tried to export a .mov file to it. It displayed in the directory, but did not play. It was 45mb in size, and maybe too large for the processor in the frame. This isn't a feature I need in the frame anyway.
I found myself smiling as I watched the photos play in the slideshow on the NIX frame. This was all I needed to realize that this was a good purchase, and one that will hopefully last us for years.
