Circle is probably the one I've used the most, as two different companies I worked for relied on it. There was a stretch of time when it was having some issues with one of our projects, but the real issue, it must be admitted, was that our integration tests were problematic, even when run locally, so Circle could not be blamed for that.

I've also used Travis and am now on a contract where we use Codeship. So far, at least, I haven't seen anything in particular that calls out one as significantly better than another. They all seem to do the job that needs doing, and they're all working out ways to do it with as little configuration as possible, which is a nice touch, while still allowing configuration where things get weird.

If I were choosing for a new project I suspect I'd go back to Circle simply because it's the one I know best right now, although I might choose Codeship for exactly the opposite reason -- it's the one I most want to learn (and am now starting to in my current contract).
