I really like the fixed chiaogoo circulars in the smaller sizes, they seemed really pointy at first, but now I'm accustomed to them. And I like the Addi lace fixed circulars in the smaller sizes. My two cents, I haven't tried a lot of different needles.
I tend to knit with the smaller needles and a lot of sets seem to have larger sizes. Hate to buy a set with needles that I won't use, but, who knows? I might suddenly start using larger sizes. I guess it's good to have options, but so far I've been dabbling in different types, just Clover (which I still like for some things), KnitPicks, and Dreamz. I got one pair of plastic things that I hated, can't remember the brand now.
