I've used some pretty cheap-assed tuners and other than the ones that bind or stiffen up, they all pretty much do the same thing (locking and staggered string holes aside). Some 'feel' nicer than others and some have different turn ratios, but I have never really developed a preference for any of them. As long as they do their job, I'm happy with them.
What I would like is a dual ratio tuner that could take up the slack in a string change really fast but then change to a more precise ratio when you get close to pitch, as far as I know no one makes anything like that.
