Samsung SPF-85V Digital Photo Frame


I don't know too many people who bother with printing their digital pictures these days. It's just so much easier to flip through a virtual album on a computer or ...

USB Mini Monitor function is fantastic ; Starlight Touch controls look great ; Internal memory is Mass Storage compliant ; Beautiful on-screen user interface ; Internal battery is rechargeable

Frame rate issues with movie player ; No apparent support for hidden SSID for Wi-Fi ; USB cord gets in way of vertical configuration ; Vertical viewing angle could be improved ; Rechargeable battery needs AC wall adapter, does not support USB

Not surprisingly, you don't get a memory card for storing your pictures, since that will presumably come directly from your digital camera. The multi-card reader will accept SD, MMC, and MS formats.

Review: Samsung SPF-85V


When it comes to digital photos and video, internet storage and sharing has changed the way we interact with our media. Instead of prints, the majority of younger picture takers are sending their snaps directly to online destinations these days....

Wi-Fi is relatively easy to set up and use ; Excellent display ; Modern styling should appeal to a younger audience ; Innovative interface

Menu navigation can be challenging ; Highly limited internal memory ; Mini display function still has kinks to work out ; Video playback jumpy, audio weak

Samsung’s approach with the 85V and related models isn’t for everyone. For some, so little internal memory in a frame that’s hovering around the ’00 mark at most retailers will be a big turn-off. For digitally savvy users, though, a deficiency in this...
