    Which will allow me to revert to an 'as is' state if I decide to try a custom rom (both...if so - which is better?)

    My only gripe now is battery life on the Desire....I'm thinking of trying one of the roms that extend battery life....

    Well, ROM Manager uses boots to Recovery and does a Nandroid backup.
    This is the best in my opinion and you can restore your everything if you backup and say switch to another ROM.
    So if the one ROM does not work for example, you can flash your Nandroid backup and you will be good to go again.
    I am pretty sure they both do though (as is state that is).

    No other input on this? I'm curious what the more experienced users consensus on this is.

    I used both - ROM manager to do a Nandroid backup & Titanium to backup apps.

    Titanium recovers data after a wipe or restores specific apps. Nandroid is a snapshot and restores everything to the moment you took the backup

    So nandroid is perfect and reliable. Titanium can bungle up in many cases. Titanium can restore apps and settings across roms, so is great for Rom migration.
