Well worth buying to show off all those hidden pictures on your computer!!!!
on 2 January 2018
I take a lot of photos that just sit on my computer doing nothing; and whilst I already own a digital photo frame, the Nix appealed due to its on/off sensor (meaning I could just switch it on and leave it - unlike my older frame).
Upon receipt I was surprised at how large the 8" screen looked - it was bigger than I was expecting and the quality of the image just blew my older frames screen out the water! The screen quality is (IMO) right up there with an iPad screen. Menu's are VERY clear and well presented, lots of options and a handy remote which worked really well. Dead simple to work ... its really been thought out well. The sensor worked brilliantly too and the quality of the frame itself, like the screen, was top notch! If you have a lot of photos like me, I don't think the money spent is wasted on something like this ... its great for bringing back memories!
Ultimately I was so impressed that I also purchased the 10" widescreen version (on Amazon sale at only £79!). The size difference is noticeable and if you're not sure which to buy, money aside, I'd say go for the 10". That said, it is a lot more than the 8" model so value for money wise, the 8" wins by a mile. But if you can get the 10" for under £100 I'd go for that. At the end of the day though, you won't be disappointed with either ... and some may even prefer the smaller 8" model as it looks like a more regular photo frame size.
The 15" was appealing at the sale price but I think once you get past 10", the frames start to look more like small (HIGH QUALITY) screens rather than photo frames. I can imagine the 15" would look massive on a small table, so here an 8" or 10" would be better. I guess it depends on how 'On View' you want your pictures to be.
Finally, the frame also played movie clips shot by my smartphone and digital camera no problem (with or without sound - you can select) .... a great touch I thought!
Hope my review helps ... if you're looking for a digital frame I'd skip the rest and just go for this! Note the attached pictures don't show how good the screen really is.
