I picked up a Samsung SPF-71ES digital photo frame today, it’s pretty cool so I thought I’d write a little post about it. I’m not affiliated with Samsung in any way, I bought the device because I wanted to, nothing more.
The menu system is quite intuitive and easy to use and there are no advanced settings or configuration/setup. Once connected to your PC it comes up in Windows Explorer like a flash drive and you can just drag your photos over, it’s so easy. Once photos have been loaded on you can start a slideshow which cycles through each image.
The device has the following features:
- 7″ wide screen (480 x 234 resolution)
- 1Gb internal memory
- SD card slot
- Downstream/upstream USB sockets
The quality of the images is quite good and the transitions between the images are nice. The device itself looks quite nice and comes in several different colours. The only downside is that it is not wall-mountable due to the shape of the back, which bulges out quite a bit.
At £60 (~$90) It’s quite reasonably priced, and it got a great review on testfreaks.com.
