    I used it on my PowerBook 15" 1GHz to backup various parts of my home folder
    to DVD.

    It works fine, but it's slooow. I'd never used the previous version, so I
    can't compare.

    I like it. I've been using it since it came out, first on my G4/450 and
    now on my dual G5. I have it watch (and backup to an external FW drive)
    about 6 GB worth of files every morning at 9:30 am.

    I used it to restore files to my G5 when I got it and I had no problem.
    I don't think I would use it to make a full clone of my hard drive (a
    la Carbon Copy Cloner or Retrospect) but to backup critical files and
    applications it works quite nicely and is a huge improvement over
    previous versions.
