Dantz Retrospect Professional 7
Pricey, powerful backup program is slightly easier to use, but its interface still needs a tune-up.
Price$ 199.00 (AUD)
Experienced users of Retrospect will be more interested in the new ability to launch backups using a single hot-key combination, or the predefined filters that let you easily skip backing up nonessential files such as MP3s. There's also more power under the hood: 128-bit Advanced Encryption Standard capabilities, support for WORM (Write-Once Read-Many) tape backup for government and industry data-preservation standards compliance, and the ability to archive to 8.5GB double-layer DVD+R discs.
Retrospect Professional remains the cream of the crop in desktop backup software. If you're a newcomer to this application, sample the trial version before you purchase the pricey full version.
As an existing user, I didn't find the new features worth the upgrade fee. Before I spring for such an update, I want Dantz to make the program truly easier to use.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.
The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
The biggest perks for me would be that it comes with easy to use and comprehensive programs that make the collaboration process a whole lot more intuitive and organic
I rate the printer as a 5 out of 5 stars as it has been able to fit seamlessly into my busy and mobile lifestyle.
It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
