    That is an incredible price! In compaing the Newegg site to the Acronis site this appears to be the original Acronis True Image Home 2010, although I have no idea what the " Amaray Case" means in the Newegg description.

    Acronis typically does this near the end of the yearly life cycle. I paid $15 last year for the 2010 upgrade. They are probably going to announce the 2011 version shortly.

    Apparently that's a brand name for the typical plastic DVD case: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keep_case. The rebate form doesn't seem to exclude the boxed versions, but there's really no reason to buy it in a box...

    Anyone thinking of Aconis (I believe a very fine product) should look into this. I thought the $40 I spent for ATI Home 2010 and plus pack was a great deal, but this is even better. It does not include the Plus pack, but still a huge discount.

    Based on recommendations here, I just purchased Acronis True Image Home 2010 from Newegg and it is free shipping. To get the $25 rebate you must purchase by 05/14/2010. Seems like a great deal for a net cost of $9.99.

    Note that one thing that has changed with Acronis recently (this year?) is that you can only get free technical support for 30 days after purchase. After that you have to use their forums, buy a support plan or pay per incident.

    I don't see this as too much of a loss as Acronis tech support was mostly lame in general anyway. And the forums are pretty robust the couple of times I have used them with quick replies from others.

    Buyer beware. I have been on the Acronis forum checking this out and there are many people experiencing problems with the NonStop Backup feature of this software and they have been complaining since Home 2010 came out. Acronis states the problem is more complicated that they originally thought but keep promising there will be a fix available sometime but will not commit to a time-frame.

    NonStop Backup dies problems

    When NonStop Backup does work there are open issues with it eating up massive amounts of CPU cycles that has not yet been resolved.

    NonStop Backup Constant High CPU Load

    In spite of these problems I think I am going to purchase the software. The basic backup and restore for catastrophic disk failures seems to work and this is my main concern.
