photo mechanic vs. iview media pro: opinions? - Photography

Anyone have hands-on experience comparing iView Media Pro with CameraBits's Photo Mechanic? I use iView, but it's very very slow at flipping through my Nikon RAW images. A friend tells me that Photo Mechanic can view the Nikon Jpeg images from a RAW+JPEG shoot, and quickly open the corresponding RAW files in Photoshop for editing. That would really speed my workflow. Any drawbacks to switching to Photo Mechanic? -=-Joe...

    I use iView, but it's very very slow at flipping through my Nikon RAW
    images. A friend tells me that Photo Mechanic can view the Nikon Jpeg
    images from a RAW+JPEG shoot, and quickly open the corresponding RAW
    files in Photoshop for editing.

    That would really speed my workflow.

    Any drawbacks to switching to Photo Mechanic?

    Don't use either, but many programs allow the option of viewing either the
    embedded jpeg within the raw file (not a separate file) or rendering the
    entire raw file. Displaying the embedded jpeg is faster, of course.
    Suggest checking the help for your iView to see if it offers this option.

    BreezeBrowser is another program that reads RAW very quickly & matches
    jpeg/RAW combos, indicating those with an icon, nice compare feature etc.
    BreezeBrowser $60
