              Comments about Panasonic AJ-PCD35 5-Bay P2 Drive:

              Easy to install and finally getting the most out of the P2 cards by having fast, way better than realtime transfer speeds. I transfered a 64 gig card at 1080 60i in about 15 minutes, I don't give this 5 stars because I find it expensive.

                    After using P2 I can't imagine ever going back to tape. And this 5 card reader makes transferring footage a breeze.

                    Comments about Panasonic AJ-PCD35 5-Bay P2 Drive:

                    Using the PCD35 is a bit like experiencing the first jet planes. It is a lot faster than the prop planes but has not quite reached Mach 1, if you know what I mean.

                    Compared to the other methods of downloading P2, it is by far the fastest but a 32gb card still takes 10 minutes. If you are dealing with a large volume of cards and quick turn around, it may still not be good enough...but that is being picky. For daily use and limited volume of material, this drive is awesome.

                    We have to turn 12 to 16 cards a day for a production and there would be no way of doing it if we used the other methods available.

                    It is worth the cost.
