Default Restoring from backup

Does anyone know if restoring a ROM from backup is good or bad. Reason I'm asking is becausE I'm about to make a backup of my current setup so I can try a new ROM, and if I don't like it and want to restore from a backup will everything work fine. Thanks in advance

that's the point of the backup... just wipe things before installing the backup.

To better answer your question: restoring from a backup restores EVERYTHING to that EXACT state your phone was when you initially did your backup.

So it's not bad, and actually very good . I have 5 different ROM backups on my sd card.
Current Phone:
Nexus 4!!

Default Rom Factory

You can also use Rom Factory and create your own rom. This will not create a total backup of your phone, just the required folders for the operating system.
