I agree.  I install an extra disk and do a disk to disk dump.  
Periodically, I compress/download the dumps and store them offsite.  I 
"discovered" dump back in the BSDI 1.0 days (my God...15 years 
ago...hehe) and haven't felt like I needed anything more complex since 
then.  It just plain works.
