Which brands/types are the "good" ones?

Amphenol, Amphenol, and Amphenol. Also, the old MIL-spec stuff that can be found at most hamfests when OTs clean out their basements.

The shiny new connectors and adapters sold by vendors at hamfests are junk -- the center conductors are flimsy, often no more than springs. I've had cheap connectors fall apart mechanically, the dielectric of connectors intended for soldering will sometimes melt, and so on. These junk connectors go intermittent, or overheat with power.
