Allowing time to pass before purchasing is a good Idea. I've been rethinking this now.
Given that this unit does not seem to have a firmware update to the 20D and I suspect all support for it is gone now...and given that the connection is USB 1.1 (fairly slow)..and given that the capacity is only 20gigs, I think I'll take this unit back.
In reality what caught my eye was the $500 savings. It probably would do the trick for me but I've always lusted after the Epson units with their wizzbang features and screens. Pricy but sexy units.
I also have now a 2gig, a 1gig and a 512MB card which should handle any shoot I'm doing at the moment. The bank was only a thought of ensuring that I had capacity to go beyond those cards. Perhaps if I go on a trip in the near future where having the ability of going over would be handy, the purchase of a bank would be a good idea. I don't know...but if my gut feeling on this one is not positive and I have any hesitation then I think I'll pass and save the money towards something I really want to have.
