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.

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).

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 Drive is a one-touch backup solution and USB memory stick. We tested the 32GB version.
