Digital Foci PST-251 250GB Photo Safe II User Opinions
Life saver for any travel photographer, | Rating:
“Its an amazing solution for anyone that takes a lot of pictures during extended trips and doesn’t want to invest in extra memory media! This little gadget saved me during my trip to South Africa: World cup & safari. I was able to take pictures everyday and download them to this portable drive while I re-used the memory card.” – By Bashar A.
Purpose-built device gets the job done well., | Rating:
“The backlight is very bright, and for small batches the drive is quick. Larger batches take longer. A full, 4GB SD card takes about 10-15 minutes to empty, which brings the battery from 3 bars to 1. I have not taxed the drive by filling it or forcing it to copy huge (8GB+) cards at a time. But for my purposes, it works great…” – By nightman622
