Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Whey Banana Cream -- 5 lbs
Tastes like artificial sweetener
Tastes like artificial sweetener, yuck, and mind you I like most of their other flavors.

does the job
I like this one because it's not too sweet and it doesn't make you gassy.
I recommend Optimum as your best whey

Quality protein compared to other brands
I have only been using this protein powder for a month, so I can't vouch for any superior nutritional or strength training benefits compared to other brands. However, it dissolves quickly and fully (the cheaper products don't, regardless of what the label says), and has a great texture such that it can be added into other recipes as a dry ingredient if you want a protein boost.
The per pound price was great.
The only thing keeping this from 5-stars is the flavor. I was expecting "real" banana flavor (imagine banana gelato), instead I got the fake "candy" version of banana (think banana-flavored Runts candy, or Now-N-Laters). My fault for buying a 5-lb bottle without verifying the taste, but still. The product still tastes good enough - I mix in cinnamon, peanut butter, or vanilla extract most of the time - but when I was expecting real banana that's a bit of a let down.
