Well, the image backups of my PCs are all automated and incremental, running every night. So the imaging time doesn't make much difference to me.
Restores are done very seldom. And 80 GB takes maybe an hour for a full restore.
Consider that if you Do need a restore, and have stuff missing or some Registry data that doesn't match the rest of your system, how much time is it going to take to fix it or re-install the missing programs?
I prefer taking a little longer to restore and knowing that everything will work perfectly once it's done.
