Lot's of references to this topic on the list - a quick search will provide 
loads of feedback.  At a top level:

- cheap option - Grandstream Budgetone - works well but current firmware is 
- best option - Cisco - good * integration.  Make sure you get the phone
  supplied with SIP installed to avoid any support issues
