AuthorSubject: Nixvue Vista reliability?   [Go to Bottom of Page]
Shirley Sanderson
Posted on Tue Feb 17, 2004 3:32 PM

Last August I used a 60GB Nixvue Vista to store images from a Canon 1D and a 10D while on safari in Southern Africa. It performed well, although the battery is only sufficient to download a 1 GB CF card, so I nearly always used it plugged into a power source. I was able to download the contents of my CF cards after every game drive, and came back home with about 40 GB on the Nixvue.

Since then I have heard that these digital wallets have a high failure rate—a couple of articles on Luminous landscape have related experiences where the Nixvue Vista or a Delkin Picture Pad (same thing) have failed after only 3 months of use. One writer had his device replaced 3 or 4 times. Michael Reichman, in an article about products being rushed to market, also mentioned having a Picture Pad fail after a couple of months.

I'm going back to Africa twice this year, and am now concerned about the reliability of the Nixvue. We're limited to 15 lbs. of carry on equipment per person, and a laptop would definitely put me over the limit. It would cost a small fortune to bring enough CF cards to guard against a Nixvue failure. So, I'm wondering what the experience has been among the experts and the readers on this forum with respect to the reliability of the Nixvue or the Picture Pad, or other digital wallets. Any comments would be appreciated.
