The 8-inch NU Digital Photo frame delivers the aesthetic we've come to expect from digital photo frames; an LCD screen surrounded by an acrylic frame with connections and memory card slots hidden from view.
This particular offering is only available in one style; a gloss black finish that unfortunately doubles as a fingerprint-magnet. We like that NU has kept it simple with strong, sharp lines but the glossy plastic seems somewhat cheap and there are no interchangeable borders to offset the look like some of the other frames we've seen.
The frame also has an integrated stand which allows you to adjust the display horizontally or vertically, with a total of six height settings.
In terms of features, this 8-inch frame easily competes with similar offerings but doesn't add anything new. Memory card support covers most types: Memory Stick PRO, Memory Stick Duo, Memory Stick PRO Duo, CompactFlash, Memory Stick, Secure Digital (SD), xD-Picture Card, and Multimedia Card (MMC). There is no mention of high capacity support and we were unable to test the unit using a high capacity card such as SDHC or MMC Plus. Further, if you want to transfer images stored on your computer, there is a single USB port although no included cable.
