It is a difficult time right now, we cannot see our loved ones as much as we would like and it is easy to feel like you are missing out on precious moments, something like the Nixplay Seed is a unique way to stay up to date family and friends.
This 10.1 inch widescreen digital photo frame comes with About Nixplay Seed 10.1 inch Widescreen (Wi-Fi) and the Nixplay Seed WiFi Cloud Frame, slim, cable-stand design (attached to frame), power adaptor, wall adaptor with UK plug, infrared remote and quick start guide. This frame connects to the Nixplay app to upload 15-second videos and images, it works alongside Google Photos, Instagram, Facebook, Dropbox, Flickr, Alexa and Google Home bringing all your images into one display. This frame plays photos in 16:10 High Resolution IPS Display measuring up at 10.20 x 6.69 x 0.98 inches and with a 1280 x 800 WXGA screen resolution. There is 8GB of built in memory, slightly less than you might expect to find, that is due to the pre-installed software, it supports JPEG, JPG and PNG photos and has two 2w mono speakers. There is an infrared Hu-Motion sensor with an active range of 2.5m, this detects movement, turning the frame on and off automatically when there is someone around to enjoy the pictures.
The remote is quite small and can be a little fiddly due to its shape but with a little concentration it becomes easier to use, the app is very intuitive and allows you to get the frame up and running within a matter of minutes. The woven power cord doubles up as an adjustable stand, this makes it easy to place in tight spaces and angle it precisely. The Seed will automatically rotate images depending on whether it is set up in vertical or horizontal configuration. The image displays are bright, clear and full of colour, the audio is satisfactory, it doesn’t carry across the room but is more than good enough to enjoy the videos. One of the best things about this frame is that friends and family can upload their photos or videos from anywhere in the world, this is great for sharing private photos without posting them on social media, see your best friends babies first steps or send granny your engagement photos, it’s a wonderful, personal surprise. The Seed is a great digital photo frame for those with social media or as a gift for those you would love to see your photos and videos, it is worth noting there are no SD or USB ports but the instinctive app, cloud drive and social media connectivity gives you a lot of display options.
