I'm pretty happy with mine. The only vaguely sensible advice I can give is this: if you already have lenses for a particular type of SLR, buy the digital equivalent. If not, try to find a shop where they'll let you play around with various models and decide which you like the interface for.
The actual performance (in terms of picture quality) of most of the digital SLRs is pretty much the same. Canon are quite good at avoiding noise at higher ISO levels; other manufacturers have other strengths, but they are all very close to each other.
