Who Makes the Best Under $10 Servo?

I've tried a few, like HXT, EXI, Tower Pro, E-Max. Want to get opinions on which are best for the low price, like less-notchy, reliable, center well, etc.. Talking about 9 to 12 gram servos.

What can you tell me about carbonite? Stronger than the other non-metal like nylon? How does it compare to metal? Tks.
