Conclusion: The test system used in this review was an HP dc7900. The computer came equipped with an Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 3.0GHz CPU, 2GB of DDR2 800MHz memory, Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3250310AS 250GB SATA hard drive, NVIDIA Quadro FX570 256MB PCIe graphics card and Intel 82567LM-3 gigabit network card. For the operating system, I installed a fresh copy of Windows 7 Enterprise.
Pros: Backup at the touch of a button, Available in capacities up to 64GB, Smaller than hard drive based backup solutions, Supports hardware and software based encryption, Backup software compatible with Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7 and Mac OS X, Nice looking design with amber LED, USB connector protected by sliding mechanism, Five year warranty
Cons: Backup software does not take advantage of hardware encryption, Mediocre read and write speeds, Includes only 2GB of online storage, Pricey
Summary: Street-priced at $154 and featuring a five-year warranty, the 64GB SanDisk Ultra Backup has a higher dollar-to-GB ratio ($2.42) than portable external hard drives. For example, Clickfree’s 250GB portable hard drive costs $129 ($1.94 per GB), and the 320GB version sells for $179 ($1.79). However, the Ultra Backup is much lighter and smaller than the typical portable drive, and because it has no mechanical parts, you don’t have to worry about losing your data.
Pros: Automatic backup, Fast write speed, AES hardware encryption, Useful included software,
Conclusion: I cannot stress how important it is to have a backup- I once lost an entire collection of pics for one of our family vacations and had it not been for a CD backup up somewhere, I would’ve slept on the couch for a few nights. The SanDisk Ultra Backup is certainly a good concept and allows you to create backups for your important data in a much easier way that Windows does.
Summary: SanDisk, inarguably a leader in the world of memory and storage, looks to solidify its spot in the pole position with a new line of backup USB drives, which should land on store shelves in April. The SanDisk Ultra Backup USB Flash Drives feature a button-activated backup application and a cool black-and-red look.
SanDisk Ultra Backup 64 GB: Einfache Backups per USB Stick
21 December 2012
Conclusion: Der USB 2.0 Flash Stick ist für ein automatisches Backup nur unter Windows zu verwenden. Mac und Linux User fangen mit der Backup Taste nichts an. Mit den stolzen 64 GB kann man eigentlich alle wichtigen Systemdaten, Programme usw. speichern. In Sachen Geschwindigkeit hinkt der Stick nur beim Lesen etwas hinterher, dennoch sind die Werte gut. Dank des Steckers, der sich ein- und ausschieben lässt, benötigt man keine extra Hülle.
