Facing off stiff competition from other leading online backup solutions, Livedrive is chosen as the Best Buy and given a five star review.

London, UK, Sep 09, 2010 –(PRLog)– Livedrive, an award winning, London-based provider of online backup and online storage solutions, was this month featured in a Computer Shopper magazine labs test, winning the Best Buy award and gaining the only five star review in the test.

Facing stiff competition from competitors that ranged from new startups to big corporates, Livedrive’s rich features and simple usability won out: “Livedrive is one of the most feature-packed online backup services around but is incredibly easy to use. At just £3.95 a month or £36 a year, it’s also one of the cheapest, making it a clear Best Buy.”

Jamie Brown, General Manager at Livedrive, commented: “Livedrive are delighted to be recognized by Computer Shopper Magazine, and we’re very excited to receive the Best Buy award. We’re constantly striving to innovate and bring the best features to our users, and it’s wonderful to see that hard work appreciated by both our customers and the media.”

The Computer Shopper article highlighted features such as the silent always-on backups, the easy-to-use recycle bin for deleted files, and the ability to revert any file to a previous version. But it was the web interface – where customers can log in to view or restore their files – that gained the most accolades: “The web-based Livedrive Portal lets you access your files from any computer. You can’t upload new content, but downloading multiple files and directories is easy. We were particularly pleased to find that our audio files were indexed and could be played from our web browser.”

Finishing the labs test, Computer Shopper summarized: “Our Best Buy award winner is Livedrive, which combines a fairly cheap £36 annual price with unlimited storage for an unlimited number of PCs and no restrictions on the files you can store. Its interface is excellent and it has great support for sharing and browsing your files over the web, along with good mobile device support”.
