At NIX, our designers wanted to deliver on two important style promises: firstly that the gorgeous people in your photo’s are framed in a suitable nice frame, and secondly that the frame blends in with your stylish home. – NIX
I received the NIX 8″ Hu-Motion Digital Picture Frame with Motion Detection Sensor and Rechargeable Battery a few weeks ago to try out. The package arrived in a shiny black box, the frame was in a velvet cover and all the accessories tucked nicely into the box right alongside. Once I pulled the frame out, it was very sleek.
The first thing I wanted to do was see the picture quality. Basic set up was pretty easy. Plug it in, install a memory card, pop in the rechargeable Lithium Ion battery (which is included and when fully charged will last up to 3 hours.) and turn it on. Also included is a USB cord to connect the NIX frame to your PC/Mac. Once connected, the NIX shows up as an external storage device, allowing you to drag and drop images over onto it. You can use the included remote to set the frame up or use the on screen buttons. I only had a few issues getting it fully set up with the motion sensor and installing the back kickstand. But once you get the hang of how to use the on-screen buttons, it is pretty intuitive. The instruction manual is very vague, I can only assume that is the reason. Once, I got the frameset and the pictures slideshow started, I love the way the pictures look, so crisp and clear from any angle.
The frame will automatically resize your photos to the optimal size for the frame, allowing you to store as many as 8000 images on the internal memory while maintaining the best resolution for your frame. The coolest feature is that the frame detects movement and turns on when someone enters or leaves the room.
