Epson P-6000 80GB Multimedia Storage Drive, Photo Viewer and Audio-Video Player w/ 4-Inch LCD – Review:
First of all, Amazon came through with all stars on this order. Cheers to them for the screaming-fast processing that got me the product when I needed it.
As for the P-3000, I needed something like this bugger as I photograph models in outdoor settings using available light. Thus, it’s a hassle to lug around the laptop, and when I do, the laptop takes too long to dump my 2-gig CF card. The viewer is another necessity because I like to know if I missed any shots due to lack of focus, etc. I screw up sometimes and the screen on my D-200 doesn’t always show my errors.
The P-3000 dumps a full 2-gig CF card in 5 minutes, as per tests I just conducted this evening. With 126 .NEF images on the card, a mere 5 minutes was a miracle compared to my laptop. When I’m out in the field, this will be an invaluable tool.
Is it expensive? I don’t think so, but I did think the 80-gig unit was more than I want to spend. Furthermore, I’m only using this as a dump drive for location shoots, not as a storage device…I have other drives for that. I thought the price was reasonable, so far I have no problem with the interface and I can rest easy knowing if I have a 1-day shoot that requires 2,000 RAW .NEF images to be shot (that would wear me out) that the P-3000 has room for them.
If you want functionality, sleek design and a decent interface, buy this unit. If you feel it’s too expensive, buy a unit with no display, as that will knock down the price. In my business though, I like having the viewer…it’ll save me a lot of time and anguish.
So far, so good. Buy with confidence, this is a good brand and a fine product. Bravo, Epson!
