5 out of 5 eggsGreat Backup Unit

Pros: Very nice drive, solid and rugged. The cartridges are veyr solidly built as well. You can use the continuous backup software that comes with it, or use your own backup software, or just drag and drop the files to the cartridges as a drive letter, just like an external USB HDD.

Cons: The software that comes with the drive insists on mirroring every single file on all of your HDDs to this unit. You may not be able to do this depending on how many HDDs you have and how much data.
The software bugs out a little when the cartridge gets full, and shows it as empty, but with a capacity of several thousand TB. odd, but you can swap out cartridges, or 'recycle' the cartridge (it looks like it just reformats it when you do this), and you are back in business.

Other Thoughts: I recommend getting the largest cartridges you can afford. You may be surprised how fast you can fill up a cartridge if you have a lot of data, simply becuase the bundled software keeps past versions of old files, unless you recycle the cartridge
