I was looking at the 10 inch seed. Looks like the 13 inch edge is on sale (250 to 175). Any idea on how these compare??

Isnt it easier to get a tablet and then use it for the same purpose. Like the Amazon 10 inch with an app and dropbox.
Cant justify spending > $150 on just one functionality.

I have one of these, I think the 12" version. While the idea is not bad (you can easily share latest images with your family and friends), the display resolution is not great (at least for the one that I have). In my opinion it does not worth the price, not even with these discounts. Also, it freezes from time to time (about once 2-3 weeks) and requires a reboot (plug it out, then in). The FakeSpot for this is F, which looks correct to me.

I have purchased the 13 inch Edge frame for my inlaws. Photo quality is very good and uploading photos and managing playlists for them remotely is pretty easy.

To avoid black bars around the photos, I use Adobe Lightroom to crop the photos 16:10 size and then output at 1920 x 1080 pixels.

Photos look Great.

Thanks to OP, will be buying another today

I own one. If you want something that does what this does, this is your best option. Using a tablet is a nice idea, but it's not the same.

The idea of this is that you can put it in a family member's house and populate the frame with photos from afar (i.e., allowing a parent to remotely send photos of a grandchild to a grandparent's frame). It's also much more convenient than traditional SD card photo frames for your own home (easier than having to remove an SD card, send photos to my laptop, find the SD card dongle, update the photos on the SD card, and then replace the SD card in a frame). It's nice to just wirelessly update a photo frame in your house from your smart phone.

The draw is that it has a smartphone app through which you can send photos you take on your phone, and also gets its own unique e-mail address. So you can e-mail photos to the e-mail address and they'll enter the rotation of photos on the frame (which even grandparents can handle).

The problem is that while it's probably the best option in its class, it's a little half-baked. The app is not intuitive. The frame itself is a little glitchy. Not very customizable. There are annoying delays and lag. It requires you to set up a pretty detailed account before you can really use it. All of that makes it somewhat difficult for a grandparent to use. I thought I'd be able to open the box, add its unique e-mail to my address book, and just start e-mailing it photos. It's much more complicated than that.

That being said, if you want something like this, there aren't really better options out there. And once you get it set up, you don't notice the failings as much (the setup is the worst part). People have said for years that tablets can replace digital photo frames, but they don't really.

I agree 100%. The set up, app, and playlist management is confusing, but once you have it all configured it's pretty easy to use. We have them at parents and grandparents houses to keep them updated with our lives. They all love when new pictures pop up. They are pricey compared to an Android tablet solution, but the ease of use makes it worth it.

The original 12" version (800 x 600) was lower resolution than this version (1024 x 768) and on a much larger screen. I find photo quality to be very nice and viewing angle is great.

Both the Nixplay 15" and Edge 13" have been lower before, and these products have been out for some time. One shouldn't be paying more for aging tech.

Did you post a receipt from 2014 in 2017 saying they 'jacked' the price? Confused
