I have the Velo-Orange BB in my stripped-thread (not my neglect) ally frame; it's a nice unit.

But although I tried to prevent creaks when assembling it, I still get one when I stand hard on it. I think I pulled it apart once and tried more grease or whatever to fix it, but to no avail. I'll give it another shot again soon, I think...

The Sunlite one might be better at preventing creaks (it might be worse, too), but it sure looks a lot heavier. Then again, the VO one is 3 or 4 times the price, innit?
