Default [App] PdaNet - EasyTether - Or Other?

Just curious what everyone elses experience has been with tethering options. I just finished my trial period with PdaNet and have started trying EasyTether. I will shortly have to purchase a full version to allow access to secure sites for email, etc. so Im curious what the latest opinions are.

In reading previous threads, it seems people seem to find EasyTether to be faster, but pdanet to be more reliable.

Whats the verdict?

I use PDA net for USB tethering on devices that don't have wifi and rooted wireless tethering for things that can access with wifi.

Never once had any problems or disconnects with PDAnet but after a lot of use with wireless tethering I have to stop and restart the app.

I use Easytether all the time. My carrier doesn't charge me barely any data when I use Easytether so i will stick with it.

My provider allows tethering so I am not too concerned.
