Does anyone have any insight into why Epson discontinued the P-5000? I can't find any info on Epson's website. Do you know whether it intends to offer any new product? What's someone to do if you want to buy something to compete?
Here is a link today: http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/consumer/consDetail.jsp?BV_UseBVCookie=yes&oid=63061068&ref=r0302EFb3T&s_kwcid=epson%20p%205000|1147392990&gclid=CLLMkdfMrJQCFSaiiQodAFXSzg
I use both a P-5000 and a P-3000. I prefer the P-5000, but the real difference is size of the hard drive. The travel kit is not just good, but excellent. The stand is great for slide shows as it raises the units off the base so that you can hear sound. I recommend buying the unit, travel kit and an extra battery.
