I don't have experience with many but my Cateye Strada has served me well. You need to be careful when you're calibrating it though. The numbers in the guide are off so you need to measure the circumference of your tire manually.
Depends where you are riding. I tried a couple of Cateye, and quite a few others. However, in my ride past National Airport in the DC areas I dropped signal between teh cadence/speed sensor and the headunit consistently. The only thing that seemed to work was a Garmin. YMMV though.
I have a Planet Bike that works fine but I don't do much heavy trail-rock bashing. Reliable yes, but durable for mtb use ,, so far it's okay.

^^ As to this, I've had 4 or 5 computers through the years and the most recent set up I have is based on the roll out method for wheel travel-calibration. Look it up and try that method out because I've yet to see the accuracy I have at present when used with or compared with GPS.
Last ride was 5.26 on the odo and 5.19 on GPS.
In the Middle Ages, the biggest mistake was not putting on your armor because you were 'just going down to the corner.'
