In a nutshell, most Philips or Sunbeam irons are good.

Philips has a good line out in stores right now. Sunbeams are cheaper, but often do not have 'de-calc' capability though - something to think about if the water in your area is especially hard.

Sunbeam +1

Another point - remember to iron your shirts when they are a little damp, as opposed to dry. It will make life a LOT easier for you, and turn out consistently better results.

Stainless is better than teflon coating IMO as it tends to come off after a while. Otherwise just pick one that looks cool!

I like an Iron with some weight behind it. Go with Sunbeam. I had a braun iron that was quite nice but I kept on dropping it.

I have a Philips and would definitely recommend them.

I had a Sunbeam and now have a Phillips. I cannot remember the model designations, but the steam function is much better on my current, Phillips iron than it was on the Sunbeam. I always line dry my shirts in the sun and then, when ironing, give them a gentle spray with water from a spray bottle. As apropos states above, it really helps to get out the micro-creases and gives the shirts extra crispness. I should add that my iron has a cordless function, but I never use it as the iron cools too quickly and you then have to replace it on the base station and wait for a minute or two for it to charge/heat up again. I won't bother buying a cordless iron again, as there seems to be little point.

I have always found my phillips iron to be trusty. Has a decent heftiness about it which I like. Hello to all the aussie guys. I just joined up, its good to see a few of us on here.

Forgot to add this earlier - I have a Philips GC 2520. The 'steam shot' function is terrifyingly effective. Lovely iron, a pleasure to use.
