I tried the reusable, but none of them were absorbent enough once my milk really came in. The organic ones are really soft and great for the first couple of days. I can't remember the brand though.
The Johnson & Johnson ones were my favorite disposables, but I didn't mind if I had to use a different brand.
I tried every brand of reusable ones I could find in a store and they all worked decently well (I leaked a LOT), but they also showed under clothing really badly. I pretty much settled on wearing reusable ones at home, and disposable ones when I was out of the house.
For disposables, I really disliked the Medela ones, but I found the Lansinoh brand to be pretty good. They didn't irritate my skin, they were absorbent, and they didn't seem to show under clothing as much as some other brands. I've also heard good things about the J&J brand but I have issues with J&J as a company so I don't buy their stuff ;)
I had Gerber reusable pads, I think, but they were awful in that my nips stuck to them when I leaked...ouch/yuck! I much preferred my Medela disposable pads...absorbant and no sticking.
ETA: Just saw DC's post and it may have been Lansinoh brand that I liked...it's been awhile!!

Hemp reusable seem to be the most absorbent, but they aren't as soft as some of the cotton ones.
As far as disposables go, I like the lansinoh ones. I dislike the Gerber, because they show through shirts. Medela aren't bad.
secondaryPULSE:I picked up a few pairs of Bamboobies for this LO. They are supposed to be super thin, absorbent and soft. For disposables I liked the lansinoh ones.
This brand worked great!! They have thin and overnight ones. They're super soft and you can't see them under clothes. I loved mine. They're a bit pricey but I felt they were worth it.
Ohh bamboo ones would be brilliant! I'll have to check these out!

Also forgot to mention they're heart shaped which is neat! They really are great!
I didn't use the reusable ones at all, though I hard some.
For disposables, I liked the J&J ones. I started out with some evenflo ones (they were triangular in shape and worked awesome, but they discontinued them). Then I tried Lansinoh because so many people recommended them, but honestly, they made my nipples itch and I was miserable with them. I landed on the J&J ones and liked them, except for the fact that the adhesive strip wasn't very big and sometimes the pad would move around.
I'll probably start out with the J&J ones again.
