Epson P-2000


Player Type: Portable Media Player

The best display we've yet seen on a photo viewer or portable multimedia device. Highly attuned to the needs of digital photographers on the go.

Filenames restricted to 8.3 format (one to eight characters, plus file-type extension). Some noise in audio tracks.

The Epson P-2000 multimedia photo viewer is an excellent photo and video viewer with camera off-loading abilities. The image quality is breathtaking, and the viewer is very easy to use. You can display slide shows on-screen and with AV output. The P-2000
