    If you're on a corporate environment then the best tools would be SCCM or MDT/WDS...
    There is a bit of a learning curve for MDT, but you are able to inject drivers/applications to the image and create unattended installation.

    I think what's easiest depends on your environment. How many workstations? Will you use a single install package or several packages with variations in software? Will you be injecting drivers for many different makes/models of computers?

    I've used MDT in the past and it worked well with very little or no interaction. I could create packages for different departments and different make/model of computers and choose which drivers and software needed to be installed. Like mikey88 said, there is a learning curve to it but once that is done it's fairly simple to maintain.

    I've also used a USB drive with the ISO and ran scripts to install software. It's basic, it works, but can be a pain too.

    We've been using Acronis True Image with lots of luck. Not sure what your end goals are, but my workstation crew can run an image from a multi-bay setup doing around 40 SSDs an hour per employee when dealing with physical machines.
