best imaging tool?

i wanted to know if there was any imaging tool out there equal or better than clonezilla?
i have used clonezilla earlier, but wanted to know if there was a newer tool with a GUI, that would allow a user to take a image and also restore a image onto identical hardware.
has anyone heard of acronis disk imager, or acronis backup advanced? do these get the same job done as clonezilla?

just want to add that i need to take an image of a raid 5 server with 4 disks.

Hi rashidM,

well, to simply take a disk image and put it back on the same hardware setup (or in other words, a 1:1 image with no additional needs to convert/move/… anything), to me “dd” is actually the “best imaging tool”. Available on any Linux boot image, no special formats involved, easy to use, small. What more would I want?
