Is this faster than using the typical windows import photos dialog? It would be nice to find something that auto imports upon inserting my CF card or just with a click or two at most.

I will probably just use zoom browser for basic preview and culling obvious rejects.

I don't think it gets any easier than Downloader Pro.

Breezebrowser is also a great viewer/converter.

^^^^+10000. That's what I use and it supports geotagging as part of the process.

For me, the Hyperdrive is a life saver. You can shoot all day and still have clean cards the next AM. Download speed is not an issue for me, I generally don't sit there waiting for transfer to complete, anyway. It takes up almost no space. And because my shoots won't tolerate lost shots, I sometimes use two Hyperdrives for a double backup.

The only reason to have anything else is for web functions, IMO. The above setup is too bulky and unnecessary for my needs.

I'm lucky in that one of the Hyperdrives is an Album, with a 5" screen in HD. They're not offered anymore, as far as I can tell.

One Hyperdrive UDMA can back itself up to a regular USB drive by the way.

One other thing the hyperdrive has going for it is the ability to take a backup battery with you into the field without taking up much space.

How long does a netbook battery last in the field?

That is really cool. Little pricey at $50, but very cool. So if you did something like swap out your Hyperdrives HDD for a smaller SSD and say that filled up by the end of the day but you had a larger external HDD say at your hotel room you could dump the data off there then start fresh the next day.

Most good netbooks will give you about 6-8 hours of constant use on battery. So, that should be more than enough for most people, since when you are shooting, the netbook could just be in sleep mode.

Is that 6-8 hours backing up photos or just being on. I would think the hard drive drains batteries a lot faster than just surfing the web.

Your biggest drain will be the screen, set it to the lowest brightness and close the lid when not in use, it will last a while. If you are still concerned about battery life get an SSD for it.

And it doesn't need a power supply the size and weight of a brick to recharge it, just a USB port and cable (which I already take along to charge my phone, GPS, etc.)

I'd rather just take all the memory cards I have and not shoot blindly like a fool. I can do something like 3,000 raw images on the cards I have. No extra bloat.

If that's not enough, the full laptop can be brought along. It's not a super light solution but it's not terrible AND it's my main machine, so I'm only transferring once.

a lot of people that have hyperdrives also have a lot of cards. it's more about the backup and the option of formatting a card at a shoot (or trip), if necessary, that's attractive. the fact that I can double backup with a USB drive is also a plus. It's all about what you prefer, really. Album was a great option that unfortunately is not available any longer -- dunno what the rumor mill had about it returning.

It looks like PSD makers haven't adjusted their pricing in the netbook era. Bye bye.

Really depends what you value. If price is the highest determining factor on your list, then yeh you might do better with
Netbooks. However if you value weight, bulk and battery life, then the netbook just might not be your best choice.

In the past I used a netbook, partly because I wanted something that could do email and web surfing as well as backup photos. Now my phone can do those two adequately. Since then I've used the Hyperdrive for backups because of the weight and convenience advantages. My netbook hasn't seen the light of day for about two years.

The problem is there are devices much cheaper than the Hyperdrive, such as the Dooin Media Manager ($50).
