Current best backup software

Ok looking to make an image of a computer weekly and differentials each day in between.  I was looking at Acronis True Image but the hundreds of bad user reviews on Amazon really put me off.  I looked on this site and see a program from Runtime.org called Software
DriveImage XML  -- https://www.runtime.org/data-recovery-documentation.htm  Not only is this program free but they had a good youtube tutorial on how to make a backup iso.  However, I would like to be able to set it and forget it.  A program like Acronis which does all the scheduling and wiping of old images on your time table would be great.  The Runtime program gives me directions to use switches with task scheduler but it seems I will be having to do a decent about of management.

Are there any other backup programs people recommend for a home user?  Price is not really that big of issue.  I just want to be confident in the ability to restore my data in the case of a complete hard drive failure.  

Looking for recommendations from people who have used the software successfully to not only backup but recover.

Thank you
