What experts liked
If you prefer loading your images via SD card or USB stick instead, Nixplay’s Nix Advance will save you a significant bit of cash while still providing all of the other benefits of our top pick, aside from wireless connectivity. You get the same great screen, motion sensor, and remote, along with easy setup and operation.
- New York Times Wirecutter
The NIX Advance X08E is a wonderful device that produces accurate colors and beautiful image clarity. The slim design and easy-to-use setup makes this a good choice for any home.

The NIX Advance isn’t quite as feature rich as the Pix-Star but it does have one killer feature – a motion sensor. Through this facility, the frame will switch on every time you enter the room, switching back off the moment you leave.

It automatically adjusts photo orientation for the best viewing. The motion detector automatically turns the frame on and off so you save on electricity. Setting up or choosing a slide show is no problem with the easy to use remote control.

Good display, but the price and features make this one of our favorites.

The Nix X08E is the best option for most people, with its ability to mix both video and photos into the same slideshow displayed on a beautiful IPS LED screen. It comes with a remote control, quality speakers, and can function as a clock or calendar, too.
- Wiki EZ Vid
It also has a sensor that turns it on when someone enters the room, USB and SD ports, an intuitive remote control and other functions like clock, calendar and stereo speakers.
- Top Guide Pro
The frame has a motion sensor with the help of which the gadget scans the room, and if there are no any movements, it switches off the device for the period from 5 to 60 minutes (you can set the time yourself). Note that the frame also boasts clock and calendar functions that are also very useful. Finally, if you want to change the picture but you're far away from the frame, you can do it using a remote control.

One great feature not necessarily unique to the NIX Advance, but still very well implemented, is the ability to view HD videos and photos in the same slide show. Videos need to be in MPEG-4, the format that most cameras and smart phones record in natively.
- ShotKit
What experts didn't like
The lack of Wi-Fi means you’ll be loading images via SD card slot or USB port.
- New York Times Wirecutter
Since this digital photo frame doesn't connect to Wi-Fi, you cannot view YouTube videos or other social media sites on the screen.

No Wi-Fi or cloud storage. This frame does not support Wi-Fi or cloud storage. All photos have to be on either a memory stick or card. However, that does make it inexpensive.

Smaller display than some of the more impressive models (8"); menu system can be confusing. No internal memory.

If you’re looking for a digital picture frame with Wifi, you should skip this product and move on down to the next one.
