Nikon Coolwalker MSV-01 User Opinions

Prefer this over the FlashTrax, | Rating: ★★★★★
“I got mine today – very nice. Reads a 4 GB Microdive quickly. Great display, far better than the FlashTrax. Transferred all my photos to it, have room to spare. Direct printing is a plus! Glad I bought it.” – By L. Mureebe

OK but what is this CF Card Adapter?? | Rating: ★★★★☆
“After an hour Googling “CF adapter” I found a “4-in-1 adapter” that supposedly lets you plug in an SD card into this thing. Well, physically this does work, but crashes the Coolwalker if it is powered up with the card in place. IF you insert the card into the powered-up CoolWalker (something I’m not all that comfortable with doing on a regular basis!) it will transfer the photos on the SD to the CoolWalker.” – By JimBob

Using the Coolwalker with a CF Adapter, | Rating: ★★★★★
“I use it EXACTLY as specified in the Coolwalker directions… inserting the card WITH the SD card already in the CFA into the Coolwalker BEFORE powering the Coolwalker up. It works GREAT. I might say that I “DO” follow the Coolwalker instructions and ONLY USE an approved SD Card…” – By M. Peoples

A portable harddrive with a view screen, | Rating: ★★★★☆
“I recently received a 60 gig ipod and think that I will still bring the CoolWalker along for all my photos. I like the Nikon Camera download to Nikon storage, even if it isn’t as cool as the ipod nor does it have as many bells and whistles as some other photo viewers, but then again, as far as the most important issue- data storage- I’ve never been let down.” – By Rose

Coolwalker review, | Rating: ★★★★☆
“The Coolwalker works very well as a viewing device and storage device with one notable exception….it can deplete it’s charged battery very quickly. If you buy a Coolwalker, you should consider spending the money in a spare battery right off. Downloading a couple of cards will take awhile and you will need the second battery to get through the day.” – By Dennis L. Hardy
