I've successfully used EaseUs' a handful of times in the past. A bit clunky, but seemingly most of them are to some degree (in the past, Paragon's, GParted, maybe even PartitionMagic).

If memory serves, I may have had to manually edit the partition signature in the registry or else Windows couldn't find itself.

Then you click the button and it does everything. With Acronis. I could do many of the same things, but each step had to be performed individually. With slow drives, each step takes minutes or hours. I much prefer being able to launch Reflect’s tasks and leave the computer to finish on its own.

I have really gotten to know my neighbors really well with Smart Saver...our crap keeps getting delivered to somebody else in the neighborhood! I like my neighbors and all, but I don't want them knowing when I buy a new laser or sight for one of my firearms!Thanks to Newegg and smart saver shipping (Fedex Surepost) I won't have to worry about cloning until next Friday. A whole week to go from the LA area to the Seattle area.
Thank you guys for your input though. Much appreciated.
Edit - I guess I forget that monday is a holiday for some.
