  • Summary: Having already purchased the JOBO GigaVu Pro Evolution and being on the whole very happy with the unit, I purchased the JOBO Giga Vu Extreme(JGVEx) (160Gb HDD). The unit is very well made and does exactly what is says on the 'tin'. The plus side for me is that both these JOBO units are able to decode ACTUAL raw files, not just the embedded jpeg from the raw file.
  • Pros: View actual raw files., GREAT screen., Fast transfers., USBOTG., Works as a multimedia player(Mpeg 1/2 and mp3 support)., Very well made, the unit is surrounded by a thick rubber casing., Linux., OS NOT stored on the HDD.
  • Cons: Definitely price, once again JOBO has the SRP for the 160Gb unit at a whopping $899 USD !, Not the most intuitive menu layout (I had no problems, but when I gave the unit to a friend, he didn't like the menu layout; thought it was a bit 'clunky'), Slow to 'boot' initially (circa 20 seconds).

  • Conclusion: Eg stolar ikkje på harddisk på reise. Men brukar GIGA Vu'en til å ta sikkerheitskopi av minnekorta etter som desse vert fylt, utan å slette desse etterpå. Så har eg i alle fall 2 sett av alle filene. Skjermen er også fin for å studere bildene på, eller vise dei fram for medreisande.
  • Pros: Enkelt å bytte harddisk til ein større. Sjølv har eg satt inn harddisk på 320GB i min.
  • Cons: Harddisk er sårbart på reise.
