You can find reviews for these three brands throughout this site. That said, as with most things people have a brand they prefer, but all three of these manufacturers offer quality products that range from high-end down to what could be described as economy offerings.

One thing to keep in mind is that when it comes to being happy with a furnace it depends more on the install than it does on the actual equipment being installed. Strictly speaking you need a quality piece of hardware, but if you improperly size or instal a furnace it doesn't matter how good it is because you will have problems with it.

So its important to do your due diligence and seek out a quality brand and model, but you need to be sure you hire a certified HVAC tech who includes performing a manual J calculation to properly size the furnace and design the heating system.

To keep legal happy, let me just say that I am not an HVAC contractor, and you should never even look at your furnace without having a qualified, liability accepting HVAC contractor present.  To keep sales happy, let me just say that you can find an HVAC contractor that's happy to take your money here: http://www.furnacecompare.com/perl/find_contractors.pl.
