I recommend ING: http://home.ingdirect.com

At 3% interest, I haven't found anyone to beat them. As a previous poster said, it is true that they do not offer check writing, but I don't think most folks want their e-fund to be quite that accessible. Makes it too easy to dip into in for non-emergencies. You can "link" your checking account to your ING account, which means you can electronically transfer funds from ING to checking within just a few days, so it's not like it's not readily accessible.

I do have my checking account with NetBank, however, again because of the interest rate. 1.51% on checking. Sweet. :-)

Thanks!
Joe
