My favourite chain right now (this sounds SO sad! Like that Nadine Maggot woman on the Olay ads...) is the HG90. I have never had an issue with the whole black link thing and it shifts so well.
SRAM PC-58 is a good bet too if you like to brak and rejoin your chain frequently as it has a splitting link.
