Looking for backup software recommendations for 64 bit windows 7.

As there is no right or wrong answer, points assigned based on recommendations and reasoning.

I'm fine to pay for it, so not looking for the best "free" one.  

Things I'm looking for...
1.  Easy to use
2.  Reliable
3.  Reputable company

The above are bare-metal backups.  

These are data backup apps...  I have researched the heck out them and this what I have been using for a long time:


fBackup - I use this because it works so well and the logs are great.
Cobian Backup

Here is a list that I went through a million times:
