Here's the link to this product: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822688061

My question is, of course, are any of you familiar with this backup solution?

It says it does everything I want in a complete backup program and drive but I'm wondering if it actually works as advertised.

What I'm after is a one-click backup of everything on my computer. The ability to write a new backup to an external drive that only changes whatever has changed on my computer since the last backup and finally, does the backup work if my hard drive completely fails and I have to buy a new hard drive. Can I actually restore everything that was backedup from the broken drive to a new drive?

I've Googled it for any reviews and have found none.

At $170.00, it isn't something I'd want to take a gamble with.

What I like about the description is that you connect it to a USB 3 slot, let it copy everything on your computer and then just unplug it until you want to perform a fresh backup of only whatever has changed since the previous backup. Supposedly, if it works, it would be a very fast backup copy after the initial backup.

It sounds perfect but what product is described by its company that isn't described as being perfect?

Again, supposedly, it also allows you to do the same thing on this same drive with multiple computers. Another major selling point for me since I also use multiple computers. 3 of them for now, 6 or more if I can get the program straightened out with the CERN/LHC project. http://www.lhcportal.com/Portal/index.htm

Thanks for any help &/ or advice.
