I need a backup solution for my home computer (an iMac G5), and I’m considering these products:
– Deja Vu, for backup and cloning software
– Iomega 250 GB USB 2.0 external drive, for actual disk space
(That’s a pretty cheap 250 gigs, btw … about $100 USD, after rebates.)

I found your blog through Don Thorson. I am a data backup fanatic and recently did a fairly exhaustive search of backup solutions for Mac. (I polled just about every Mac expert I know and sifted through the advice and product recommendations.) In the end, I settled on SuperDuper! (get past the name) and a WiebeTech drive enclosure. Advantages of the combination include fully bootable clones of my hard drives maintained nightly and the ability to use any internal hard drive on the market (read: cheap, fast, upgradeable storage) within the WiebeTech enclosure at FW800 speeds. I have used the system for several months now and couldn’t be happier. Great stuff.
I had seen the SuperDuper! software about a week ago, but couldn’t conjure it up from the depths of Google again … and so had kind of settled on the Deja Vu solution.
I actually ended up buying an Acomdata USB 2.0 drive: 250 GB for only $120 Canadian:
