I'm going to buy a device that burns CDs from a compact flash card.

Is anybody familiar with either of these devices?

RoadStor or Apacer?

Thanks,
Bruce

From the prices I've seen for some of those image storage units (around $500) you can pick up a pretty decent used laptop. A $20 PCMIA or USB card reader and you're in business with a lot more flexibility/utility than a dedicated image storage unit. But that's just my opinion...

Both have high marks from the reviews I read online. One of them even went up a mountain.

The Roadstor runs about $270 from the manufacturer and the Apacer runs about $200 ("Buy It Now price") on Ebay.

I think this puts them below the price of a decent used laptop ... at least below those that won't burn your fingers...

Yes, the laptop has advantages but it also weighs a lot more and takes up space.
