Drive image software - which is best?

I need to keep a backup of my desktop PC and am faced with a few options - my PC has been loaded with Drive Image XML - will this do the job of protecting the PC or would I better trying True Image or similar?

True Image has never let me down. Used it on 3 different PCs now. Still using v.8

Another vote for Acronis True Image. I've used it since v.6, now on v.11.

I have used both Norton Ghost and Acronis True Image. No contest at all True image is the best by far and, contrary to Ditch999's experience, I had speedy help from Acronis with a minor problem when Vista was first launched.

Acronis by far.

Don't forget that if you have a Maxtor or Seagate external drive, you can have a copy of Acronis True Image Home 10, free of charge. Download it here: click here
I have tried it out - it works perfectly, and I have neither of the drives mentioned....!
