Some people prefer one or the other, and some people dislike one or the other, so you'll probably get mixed answers.

They both have trial versions so you can test drive each of them and see which you prefer.

I've been using Acronis for years, and don't have any problems.

I also recently started using Macrium free and it has worked well for me.

They are both fine programs which do what they are supposed to do. After that, the only thing that matters is which one is easier for you to use. :)
