Epson P-5000 Multimedia Storage Viewer


The Epson P-5000 is both a forward leap in terms of functionality and speed, and perhaps a backwards step for some photographers in terms of the overall design. The P-5000 is much quicker than the older P-4000 model. The transfer speed from memory card...

The Epson P-5000 is a great device for professional photographers. While the high price tag means it is far from a mass market product, those who are regularly on the road taking pictures will really appreciate the extra storage.

Great screen, 80GB of storage, Media playback capabilities

Expensive, Quite chunky

Epson P-5000 Multimedia Storage Viewer


Tired of carrying a laptop around with you on photoshoots?

Physically, the unit is intuitive to work with, comfortable to hold with the majority of the work being done with the right thumb. The two memory card slots are sensibly placed on the top for easy access along with the headphone socket. The remainder...

Epson Photo Viewer P-5000 USB 80GB Multimedia Storage Viewer


Epson's P5000 viewer provides a compact high-capacity storage and multimedia-viewing system, which, like its forbear the P4000, combines excellent screen quality, plenty of storage space, ease of use and tough build quality. The P5000 is pricey but...

Screen quality, build, and simple to use

Price, screens not widescreen, menus are a little convoluted for some tasks

The P5000 is pricey but provides great scope for storage on the move or video watching or listing to MP3s.

Epson P-5000


These days all pro-photographers find it necessary to lug their laptops around for every shoot. The reason for this is that SLR cameras come with quite a few shortcomings, like a small screen size through which it gets tough to get the right idea of...

With all the good things mentioned above, I think its time I pointed out the negatives too. Though I understand, that the P-5000 is an image viewer before everything else, it does have a function to playback movies. But unfortunately the dimensions of...
