For $30, well actually $29.99, you can get the Cloudberry drive

While I have no experience with this product, I have stellar experience with the vendor going back 6-7 years.

To expand on what shalomc said, I use Cloudberry and it works great.  I've been using it for several years and it makes S3 usage easy and straightforward.  Essentially, you just run it when you want to interact with your S3 account and you can move files back and forth from side to side like you might in WinSCP.  Very simple to set up and use if you have all of your S3 credentials handy to get it configured.

I was hoping for a product that essentially maps a drive on the pc rather than having to launch a file manager of sort.

Well, the Cloudberry product I mentioned does exactly that :)

The other product mentioned by profgeek is probably S3 Explorer, which is great on it's own but not what you are looking for.
