Is The Verge the nicest Tech Site out there?

In my opinion The Verge is, and has been, for me the nicest looking tech site out there. It certainly feels like one of the fastest, and I love the mobile podcast and the vergecast is great. The post quality is really good too. I know a lot of you switched from Gizmodo and I'm guessing Engadget too.

What do you guys think about The Verge compared to other sites like Engadget, Lifehacker, TechCrunch, Cnet, anandtech etc...
