Short Report: Epson P-5000 Multimedia Storage Viewer
A portable hard drive/viewer can quickly become a part of your photographic system
The P-5000's slideshow feature provides a good way to share photos without having to export the images to a computer. Because the viewer supports a variety of audio formats, including MP3 and AAC, I was able to download and store some of my favorite music and use the songs for my slideshows.
I soon found that I wasn't missing my laptop at all. Its large and bright screen, the speedy downloads and the large-capacity hard drive all make the Epson P-5000 a part of my photographic inventory that I'd rather not be without.
