I've had good luck with the uniross hybrios that I got at Fry's, but they no longer carry. They replaced them with Rayovac hybrids at the same price ($10 for 4) but they don't seem to have quite the capacity. I did pick up a set of eneloops, and they seem to be pretty good. I'd love to see decent third party tests.
I've also noticed that they don't seem to hit their stride until a few charge cycles.
