Epson Comes Through
An update on my Epson P4000 unit that would not charge. Epson has been remarkably cooperative and Fedexed out a new (refurbished) unit to me. They insisted on placing a hold on my credit card, which always unnerves me, but I suppose that’s what you get if you want them to send you the unit first. Now I just have to put the old one in the box and fire it back to Epson. All in all a very pleasant experience – I usually assume this kind of thing will eat up hours of my life. I like this unit alot, I still wish it ran on AAs.
I am counting on this P4000 and a Hyperdrive HD80 to get me through this coming assignment to DRC and Malawi. The Hyperdrive’s big selling point to me, aside from the price, is it’s ability to download 80GB of files on 4 standard AA batteries. Will review both these units when I return. If, however, you are thinking about dropping the coins and buying an Epson, you might want to hold off. They’ve just announced a P3000 and P5000. Press Release and pictures here.
