A great piece of software for reviewing your images. I have started using it because it supports Minolta Raw files (it supports others too). This way I can run it and let it do a huge conversion of all my files that need to be reviewed. I can then select an image, or multiple images, and it shows it almost immediately, rather then having to wait for it to be rendered.
Extremely useful for reviewing individual photos to quickly check focus and other items to see if the picture is worth keeping.
Also very good for comparing multiple images of the same basic subject. Can have up to 6 images at once, and allows for zooming on all images at once.
A free version is available, but it doesn’t appear to support RAW. 30 day free trial, so check it out.
