Conclusion: 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 plays MP3s but has minor sonic flaws.
Pros: 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.
Cons: Filenames restricted to 8.3 format (one to eight characters, plus file-type extension). Some noise in audio tracks.
Excerpt: (3 items) Until recently, the best way to make sure you didn’t lose your freshly shot digital photos was to keep a PowerBook strapped to your side so you could wipe your memory card, view your images, and organize your work. Other options included buying additional memory cards and using an iPod as a storage device. None were optimal solutions.

Summary: The Epson P-2000 Multimedia Storage Viewer has done what few products that I have reviewed here on PhotographyBLOG have ever done - made their way into my camera bag! The Epson P-2000 has impressed me so much that I plan to buy one just as soon as Amazon have it in stock. The Epson P-2000 represents the best compromise between having a laptop computer or one of the other portable storage devices on the market.
Summary: Epson's P-2000 combines personal entertainment with data storage in a portable device with plenty of appeal to photographers. It has the largest, best-looking screen we've seen so far. The display has VGA resolution and shows three colours per pixel image, at a density of 212 pixels per inch, which is double the resolution of most competing products. . .
Excerpt: Le Photo Viewer P2000 d'Epson assure la succession du P1000. Il reprend le concept d'album photo dédié aux images numériques. Il ne se contente pas de stocker les clichés d'un appareil photo, il permet également de les visionner. L'incontestable point fort du P2000 réside dans son son écran. D'une diagonale de 3,8 pouces (9,6 cm), il affiche une résolution de 640x480 pixel avec 262000 couleurs. Des caractéristiques qui ne reflètent pas la qualité de l'affichage.
