Review of the Jobo Giga Vu Pro Evolution
Model: Giga Vu Pro Evolution
Like the Epson units, this update to the Giga Vu Pro is primarily a photo viewer with multimedia functions, whereas the Archos machines are multimedia viewers with photo functions. The Jobos impressive LCD is the brightest of the bunch, though it lacks the oomph in Epsons colours. It has the best viewing angle, and it rapidly processes RAW files at source rather than extracting the JPEG preview that some other viewers do. Theres also Wi-Fi support, a dust detector and histograms. What looks like a strong casing in reality feels plasticky and creaky, which is a major disappointment considering the price.
