What backup script do you use?

Hello all. I'm looking for comments/suggestions for a simple backup script that mirrors two hard drives. What do you use? I have read up a bit on tar and rsync and think the simple line shown below is the way to go. The data I'm backing up totals around 60+ GB. Should I avoid tar? OK...discuss. Thanks.

rsync -aHv --delete-after --progress /source/dir /destination/dir/
