    Re: 8" samsung usb/photo frame worth it?

    Interesting one. The description clearly states you can use this as a screen via the USB cable. I'm really not sure how as it would need a video card, and VCs have outputs such as HDMI, DVI and VGA.

    One thought though, is that you could use it as a digital approach plate display. It's about the right size, although the res might not be quite up to scratch.

    Re: 8" samsung usb/photo frame worth it?

    That would be a good idea.. digital approach plate.
    Found an old thread re them
    http://www.mycockpit.org/forums/show...amsung%2Bphoto

    My initial idea would be to use it as the Airspeed, Altimeter & Horizon gauges.. but maybe they could be a bit small to read!
    The 10" version has a higher resolution 1024x768.
    ive ordered one, so will report back )

    anyone have any ideas if you can use more than 1? or will that depend on PC spec?
