Yes, I have used the "system image" utility quite a number of times and it has always worked for me. Even taken the image to a different physical hard disk (has to be same size) and it worked.
There are advantages to some of the 3rd party tools...but depending upon your needs they may be totally unnecessary. I just started using Acronis True Image Home 2010 myself. After playing with the 30 day trial, I liked what I saw and when NewEgg ran in for $23.99 and free shipping I felt it was well worth the investment. For me, the Try and Decide function of Acronis is worth the price of the software. For others, this may be a complete non-issue.
