Cex.io (more than 1TH/s need because of the difficulty) ... or P2Pool (more than 320GH/s but not necessary).

Slush's pool is consistent in the long run, there are some pretty awesome block breaking days that happen, like 8 in a day....

I have some miners pointed to Slush after being off the pool for over a year+ and remember when 30 blocks were the norm for Slush.

p2pool first and foremost - even though the last couple weeks have been painful
MRR - because I can put my rigs on there, charge a price that's better than I would earn on PPS... and have the ability to remotely configure my miners when I travel for work.  Yes, it's the lazy way to get remote access Smiley.
kano - because he and CK have done so much for this community
solo.ckpool - why not try to win the lottery?

Jonny's Pool - Mine with us and help us grow!  Support a pool that supports Bitcoin, not a hardware manufacturer's pockets!  No SPV cheats.  No empty blocks.

I'm still looking for one. these are just my personal observations.
Ghash has really been the best payout for me. I think something is going on over there though
Too much hashing power to go such long times with no found blocks lately.

Eligius is nice but I don't agree with their dust policy.

Slush is old and not competitive with other pools anymore no merge mining, pool fee and too many 22 hr blocks way too often To stick there is just being loyal to an old pool these days.

btcguild fees are too high for the amount of found blocks; been on it for close to a month now and when I hit my auto payout I think I'm moving on.
Besides btc I have used all the other pools for months on end to get a feel for them.
I haven't tried the larger pools than these. Ghash is large enough and I don't wish to contribute to the centralization of hashing power.

I like old and reliable, but that's just me.
There are many pools in this forum doing giveaways and stuff, might be cool to join in on that mining.

every pool I mentioned is very reliable. They all payout albeit ghash at multiple times had issues with their auto-payout.
They are all good. I'm not here to argue either on who is better. This is my opinion and if you want to mine at one of the ones I don't like, well more power to you; it's your hashing power to do as you please.

Eligius.

No Registration
No worker setups
No need to set worker difficulty
Large enough payouts are pretty consistent
