Good online backup
I've tried other online backups, but always ran into difficulties which prevented them from being effective. I haven't run into those with Carbonite. Online backups are very slow as a class, so I don't think its slowness is a comparative disadvantage to other online services. I believe in having 2 daily backups. My primary is an external hard drive. The online is a secondary as a fail-safe if the primary fails. Off-site backup protects against dangers that would affect both your computer & your on-site backup, like fire. But it is far too slow to use as a primary backup.
