Gateway MP3 Photo Jukebox Review
Review by Ron Risman - June 2005

Product Introduction

In a world where digital cameras have replaced film for capturing family vacations, there is a growing consumer need for portable devices that will allow photos to be transferred from a camera and "backed-up" while away from home and more importantly, away from your computer. Being able to transfer the contents of your camera's memory card while out in the field means you'll be able to format and re-use it over and over again - without having to rush back to your PC to transfer the images.

Sure, larger memory cards are now more affordable than ever, but while these larger cards are dropping in price - image file sizes are increasing, thanks to higher megapixel camera's. A camera like the popular Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT creates file sizes upwards of 12-megabytes in RAW format and even 16-megabytes when capturing in RAW/JPEG format.

In RAW mode (without JPEG) that's only 85 pictures on a 1GB memory card. That may sound like a lot of pictures, but when you're away on vacation for a week, the last thing you want to do is run out of memory on the second or third day of your vacation - or be forced to review and delete photos before ever getting the chance to view them on a large computer monitor.

Enter the Gateway 6GB MP3 Photo Jukebox:

The 6GB Gateway MP3 Photo Jukebox is a very thin and lightweight Photo & MP3 player that connects to many digital camera's, allowing the transfer of images to its 6GB internal hard drive. Once the images are uploaded to the Gateway MP3 Photo Jukebox, you can then format and re-use your digital camera memory to capture more photographs. While Gateway is not alone in this growing field of portable photo storage devices, its relatively low price, small size and feather like weight (3.5 ounces) could make it a viable option. Read the review to find out more.
