Free = phpBB
Paid = vBulletin
I sorta think that it's a tie with phpBB and MyBB. They are both very good but MyBB has a much more straight-forward administrator interface. phpBB is hard for the average user unless you use something like Forumotion with it's custom control panel.
vBulletin would have to be the best hands down. And it's price for what you get, is amazing.
