ChiaoGoo is the best brand I've found to get good quality and low cost. All the various sizes and styles I've bought are great and durable, and they are cheap enough that I can get them whenever I have a new project I want to make without worrying about factoring in cost. I used these 40 inch US 5 circular needles to make my first shawl. The shawl turned out great, and I spent many hours working on it, including a couple days that I spent HOURS in a row just making huge progress. I expected I'd wake up the next morning with a sore wrist or hand, but that never happened. The cord is flexible and bendable, so it's very easy to get the angle for knitting that feels most comfortable for you. Another bonus was that my project never just slipped off the needles. I try to push projects onto the cord when I'm not working on them, and I was never concerned about carrying it around like that because it never slipped off. I tried to keep the knitting loose, and sometimes that slips off metal...
I previously bought the Red Lace version without understanding the difference. I knit a small blanket with chenille yarn and as I was binding off the cable snapped off at the joint, plus the longer skinny point was slowing me down. I bought the regular Red needle this time and I can see that the cable is thicker, plus having a bend in the needle also takes the strain off the metal cable.
I have many ChiaoGoo needles and love them. I think I prefer the bent joins of the "red line" needle to the the straight joins of the "red lace". I find the yarn slides better over them when I knit tight. The tips on the lace are sharper but the red lines are sharp enough for most projects.
