For backup products, external hard drives were recommended. The Voyager Q is a great product for Creative Professionals with Macs and FireWire. Think FireWire = pipe. USB 2.0 = straw. Spike loves these products and always has a least one in his car.
The latest Macs have USB 3.0 which is equivalent to FireWire. This product would be good for those configurations. It supports 3.5 inch and 2.5 inch SATA drives.
