I've always found BT to be slower than USB especially when making a backup. Maybe I have a cheap BT dongle (I did get it free from TigerDirect a year or so ago.) It works on mine but I haven't really figured out what all the hoopla is about. The cable is just as easy. I suppose if your USB port gives out it's a good backup.
