And can't wait to get home to do a backup?  I don't think backups are so great if they permanently reside in the system that might burst into flames or be stolen.

The fact that this is a low-capacity product marketted as a "backup" product made me scratch my head.  I guess it's not marketted as expansion because it's slow, eh?

I really think they're aiming at the wrong audience.

I have not used it yet. But my friend has it and he told me that it provides very poor performance when we talk about random access and it is also slow for boot drive use.
