Besides what has already been written above, the only other reason I could see using backup devices for is if you are space constrained. If you have a 100 GB DB, and 2 drives with 60 GB of free space each, you can create a backup device on each drive and backup across both. The caveat is that you then need both devices to restore.

--of course you could write to multiple backup files instead of the devices too..
