    Epson P5000: 80 GB Multimedia Device

    (Page 1 of 4 )

    In the world of digital photography, it's not always easy to lug around a bulky laptop to various photo shoot locations. This is the problem that Epson planned to solve when creating their line of portable multimedia devices. This review will specifically examine the P5000, so keep reading and take a look at a very interesting product.

    Epson released the two latest models last year called the P3000 and the P5000. These two models are almost identical, with the only difference being that the P3000 has 40 GB of storage while the P5000 offers 80 GB.

    The Epson P5000 is aimed directly at professional photographers who are looking for a device to store, and view, photos. With an 80 GB hard drive, the P5000 can store thousands of photos. The P5000 has some other uses as well. This device can play back MP3s or videos, and act as a storage device for these types of files. Because this device is targeted at photographers, I wouldn't buy it strictly for watching videos or playing music, but it is good to have those features as options.

    One of the biggest downfalls of the P5000 when it was released was the high price tag. The MSRP was about $700 back then. Today, you can find one of these devices for a tad over $500 with a little bit of searching online. $500 is a much more reasonable price for this device, considering nowadays you can get a decent entry-level laptop for around the MSRP of the P5000.

    There are other portable photo viewers on the market for less than the P5000, so it's definitely worth the time to do some research before buying one. One thing that will be tough to find in other less-expensive devices, though, is the exceptionally nice 4 inch LCD screen on the P5000. This is one of the best quality LCD displays on the market right now for this type of device.
