time machine versus other methods?

hi

Apple present Time Machine as an incredible thing... but is it so good?

i understand it does it's thing automatically in the background, but doesn't other back-up software such as SuperDuper offer the same?

I know it can find deleted files which others (like SuperDuper) can't but apart from that is there anything else so special about it?

i know it can't make a bootable drive for example.

a salesman said to me, it does a different job than superduper then proceeded to confuse me with why...

So why would you use Time Machine versus SuperDuper or CCC ???

AND

should one have Time Machine connected 24/7? and is USB 2 good enough?

THANKS
