Lexar, $16-$46 au.lexar.com ★★★ One of the most sub­tle and sim­ple backup so­lu­tions, Lexar’s Echo ZX is also one of the small­est. This USB stick is slightly big­ger than a thumb­nail and sticks out of a com­puter by 8mm — small enough to keep it con­nected at all times. The drive, avail­able in 8GB, 16GB and 32GB ca­pac­i­ties, can be set to au­to­mat­i­cally back up cer­tain files on com­put­ers run­ning Win­dows 7, Vista, XP or Mac OS X with its pre­loaded soft­ware. It also en­crypts files for safe-keep­ing. The drive only trans­fers files at 28MBps, how­ever, and can­not store as much as some of its ri­vals.
