I've used Carbon Copy Cloner and SuperDuper for years, but find myself using SuperDuper exclusively these days as it is just so much easier to find stuff on the backup disk and to restore from it.  I was a very early adopter of Time Machine on a Time Capsule but have at times found it impossible to actually locate what I want to restore - I simply don't trust it any more.  Time Machine also seems to use a lot of resources when it's backing up (which it does very frequently throughout the day), to the point that I'm unable to do much useful with my (late model iMac) computer while it's doing it's backup. A little used 3Tb Time Capsule is about to hit eBay.

SuperDuper gets my vote.
