Micro Solutions RoadStor is a CD-RW/DVD-ROM mated to a card reader with video out ports. The size of two DVD cases, you can pack it along to copy (and backup) images from your card to CDs. And watch slide shows. And play DVDs. And MP3s. So who needs a computer any more?
We've spent a couple of weeks with this versatile device. And we're still in love.
Pop your storage card into one of the reader ports and press one button twice to copy the images to a CD. Change the CD and copy them again. Confirm they're copied by plugging the box into a television (NTSC or PAL signal) and watching a slide show. Play DVDs, VCDs, MP3s, too.
Unlike the higher priced boxes based on micro hard drives and color LCDs, the RoadStor can make multiple copies of your images before your erase them from your card.
But, combined with the right printer, it also brings digital photography to folks who don't much like computers. Use a reader-equipped printer to print your images and the RoadStor to archive them and forget the computer all together.
