    "Superb Product!" by greenskies on January 10, 2007
    Pros: Highly recommended!! I am the manager of a small business running 3 to 5 PCs at a time. We've been using EZBlue since 2004, and I consider it indispensable. Our machines primarily are used for graphics work, and if it hadn't been for EZBlue, we still wouldn't know where to start to create a server. We just knew we needed one! The install was easy, the interface is intuitive, and the support is fantastic. Above all, it's reliable. We have not had one lost file since we started using EZBlue and let it do our backups -- and that is true peace of mind in our business environment! EZBlue also automatically organized us, almost as a side benefit, by creating ONE place to store our electronic files; we no longer waste time & energy sifting through revisions as we try to find the latest modifications. This is a product that just works. I recommend EZBlue to anyone who needs a server but doesn't have the time or inclination to create one from scratch. You will be time ahead with this product.
