Better than packing the laptop,
This review is from: Nikon Coolwalker MSV-01 Digital Portable Storage (30GB) (Camera)
Having a Canon digital SLR and preferring to take raw images, I had become totally fed up with lugging a laptop around on holiday to free up memory cards.
This device is totally portable and foolproof. Battery life is reasonable but suggest recharge regularly. Unlike many other portable digital memory devices, You can actually review images on the 2" LCD screen, Image quality is not fantastic but easy to connect to hotel TVs for a better view.
What the Nikon instructions do not tell you is that you can only view JPEG images on the screen. I had minor heart attack when I first tried to view RAW images as I got the message 'no image file exists' however on checking with a PC found that they were all intact. Images are nicely filed automatically in date order and were easy to transfer to my home PC for editing on return to UK.
Device is a bit pricey but is robustly made and probably worth it (although I bought mine in Chicago for 300 US Dollars.) It is a useful portable storage unit and does store RAW image files if this is what you need it to do.
