The only one problem with this device is it’s name “Nex to Di” I am not sure this is one of the worlds best names for a unit holding a 500GB SATA hard drive that is backing up all your days precious footage !  I think it’s a tad late to appear in the P2 and SxS market and at a whopping £1500 for a fancy card reader with a 500 GB hard drive will not have it flying off the shelves.

UPDATE : CVP have this unit for £1242 incl vat.



Having been working in the video business since 1988 I have amassed a great amount of knowledge of both the kit and production values over the last 30 years.

  1. I already have a Nexto Extreme with the 160gig and wanted to get one that has 500 gig (the unit can recognize upto 2 terabyte HD). Have been doing some work with a photographer who also does high end video. So I decided to look at both a higher hard drive and the 2725 which can recognize Sony and Panasonic high-end formats. The unit is as strong as the 2700 but I just love the case it comes with – a real upgrade from the one with the 2700 .What is really great is I talked to some Red Digital shooters and they love the CF slot and the ability to download directly. eSata output means fast transfer to my desktop and using the Sync feature means my folders are automatically updated when I have new images
