Samsung SPP-2040 Digital Photo Printer


The Samsung SPP-2040 Digital Photo Printer offers excellent performance and very good photo quality along with the ability to print from cameras, memory cards, and computers.

Fast performance for a thermal-dye printer. Prints from cameras, memory cards, and computers. Includes 2-inch LCD for previewing photos before printing.

Running cost is relatively high

Samsung photo printers review: Samsung photo printers


Fast; solid print quality; easy to operate; Mac and Windows compatible.

Commandeers lots of desk space; no battery option; insufficient tech support.

You'll like the speed with which the dye-sub Samsung SPP-2040 delivers decent prints.

Samsung has made a push in the photo printer market with their dye-sublimation based printers. The SPP-2040 is the higher end of the line, providing prints that won't fade and are equivalent quality to a photo finishing service.

Samsung has really hit the ground running with this printer, there first entry into the crowded dedicated photo printer market. The SPP-2040 produces prints that are a stiff competition to their photo lab counterparts. The choice of dye-sublimation...

Samsung's Good and Tidy Printer


This reasonably priced Samsung SPP-2040 produces high-quality pictures and takes up less space than a kid's lunch box.

Getting photos printed at the local drugstore is all but a thing of the past. Over the last year or so, several printer makers have introduced machines capable of churning out prints that are just as good, if not better, than the ones from around the...

Samsung SPP-2040 Photo Printer Review


The first thing I thought when I saw the SPP-2040 was "wow, that's a tiny printer". I would actually consider the SPP-2040s prints to have a more accurate representation of colour and slightly better detail than the professional prints I had developed...

Samsung SPP-2040 Dye-Sub Photo Printer Review


The solution to getting the 'digital' out of photography is something you're already undoubtedly aware of - personal photo printing.

All things are not rosy however. The 2" LCD screen is held up by what feels like a very flimsy plastic mechanism, but that's not going to impact anyone substantially. No, the main issue we experienced with the Samsung SPP-2040 relates to how the glossy...

Samsung SPP-2040 Photo Printer


With digital photography starting to far outnumber tradition film photography there lies one downside that some people don't always think about, printing those digital photos! Most colour printers offer a decent job of doing this, but the ink can fade...

Great quality photos ; Small size ; 7-in-1 card reader ; Optional Bluetooth model ; LCD Display

Could include more pieces of photo paper with it! (only get 10)

Overall the SPP-2040 photo printer is a great addition to any amateur or professional's tool chest! It offers a great way to print superb quality photos both on the go with the card reader or while at home directly off your PC.
