I have just returned from my first laptop-free trip (looking for feeding whalesharks off Djibouti), using the Epson P-5000 as primary storage device. I found it reliable and both simple and fast to use. I backed it up to an 80 Gb Freecom pocketdrive so that I would have two copies of everything. This routine works well, though you will need an a/c adapter for a bus-powered pocketdrive.
You are tied to its OS and slightly quirky sync software, but it works fine – just a bit of batch renaming and shuffling around of folders when you get back to base.
Given the sheer hassle of travelling as an underwater photographer nowadays, leaving out the powerbook was great.
