    From Panasonic site
    Panasonic’s P2 card is based on ultra-reliable, solid-state memory, consisting of four SD cards, like those now used in digital still cameras, packaged in a rugged, die-cast frame that weighs only 0.099 lbs (45 grams). This convenient card has four times the capacity and four times the transfer speed of a single SD card. The P2 card is reusable and connects instantly with P2 decks, drives, laptops and major non-linear editing systems to eliminate the time-consuming task of digitizing. These PCMCIA-based cards can be easily connected to laptops using ExpressCard technology with simple, highly affordable third-party adapters.

    The P2 card is resistant to impact (up to 1,500G), vibration (up to 15G), shock, dust and enviro

    I would not hesitate to buy it again, although if I had the money, I would consider moving up to the HPX-500.

    The same way you would archive important IT data. In fact it has become an IT task. Mainly used in the field: DVD (4/8GB), BluRay (16/32GB), Hard drives, DLT/LTO tapes. In the majority of cases I'm using hard drives.

    Love P2

    Can't wait to get a 32gig card.
    File transfer time for me has been (roughly) twice as fast as digitizing a tape in real time. Using two 8 gig cards and a laptop in the field connected to a Lacie hard drive I can transfer footage faster than the camera people can fill up a card. This workflow is great and when we're done, I hand the hard drive to the editor to begin cutting. Love it.
