The NIX 8″ Digital photo frame is a great way to show off your digital photo library.

The frame can read photo or video files from both SD and USB memory, with both options being hidden around the back.  Both plug into the base of the unit that also acts as a stand and the stand also has controls on it if you don’t want to make use of the included remote.

The NIX X08D frame has a 1024×768 high resolution IPS backlit display that does a great job of showing off your photos.  The screen can be set to automatically switch off after a certain amount of time and will reactivate when it detects motion.

Along with the frame you get a nice remote control that allows you to skip photos and access the settings menu.


When you first power it up it will scan your memory card/USB stick for photos and videos and then it’s ready to use, providing you don’t mind the time being incorrect!  It only takes a couple of moments to set the correct date and time and this is used in some of the display options to give you not just a photo frame, but also a clock and/or calendar.

There are lots of different settings to take a look at, for example as mentioned you can have the date and time displayed on the photo, the transition type can be changes as can the duration a photo is shown to name but a few of the options.  It’s well worth spending time in the settings menu to get this working exactly as you want.

Photos and videos look great, it’s easy to setup, just remember to buy a memory card or USB stick if you don’t have one spare.
