I use inconsolata, but I  hate the look of it un-bold at small sizes, so
I keep it bold all the time. I've started using DejaVu very recently because
of that, it looks better on screen at small sizes (pixelsize=9 in my 
~/.Xdefaults, as opposed to the 12 and bold with inconsolata). Inconsolata
looks great on paper, though. DejaVu Sans Mono isn't the prettiest thing
but it certainly gets the job done.
