The Epson photo viewers seem to have an advantage in this market. IMO, the P6000 is as high a price point I'm willing to spend--and that's reaching.

What other viewers might you suggest as alternatives--for just viewing digital images?

thank you.

Though larger, netbooks are an option I'm exploring. The larger screen is nice, plus it allows one to annotate their photos while abroad. And you can bring along one or two 2.5" externals to backup the pics (at 80GB, the capacity of the Epson is often not enough for me during longer trips). However, netbook's are likely slower than the Epson for viewing photos.

Another option is to just buy a bunch of CF cards and use your camera as a viewer. CF cards are cheap these days, and you can get five 16GB CF cards (totalling 80GB) for less than the price of an Epson P-6000.

Of course, depending on your exact needs, the Epson might well be a better alternative than either of the above.

Personally I love my p2000 but I haven't used it much lately because it's just to slow. I like the cf card Idea, lately I've been thinking of buy new cf cards for each job which I could stick in a box like I would have done with film and having it as one of my back up sources, I'd have raid, online, and cf cards. Those cards are getting so cheap and seem to be pretty tough, it would also save the step of putting this on seemingly less stable dvd's.

Anybody familiar with the "Wolverine" product line?

http://tinyurl.com/l73o86

It doesn't have a screen, but a 160 GB drive only costs $140. I also have an Epson P2000, but I need more space as I will be making a trip out west next month. I tried updating my P2000 with 160 GB HD, see here how-to -

but it didn't work. Nothing broken, but the reset button appeared and wouldn't go away.

So, anybody have any info about the Wolverine product?
Thanks.

Is ARENA MULTIMEDIA a good choice among the animation institutes in bangalore? I'v planned of enrolling myself at the ARENA MULTIMEDIA institute in bangalore..what are your suggestions about the institute?? Is it really worth investing?? It would be great to have answers from students who have taken up such animation courses from such institutes..

You can recover the lost pictures with data recovery software. I've tried this Data Recovery, the deep recovery mode is powerful and helped me recover files. Free to download it from http://www.passwordreset.biz/data-recovery.html.
