Well, it doesn't fit your budget, but I definitely prefer Komodo IDE 
<http://www.activestate.com/komodo-ide>.  I've used Zend Studio, 
Eclipse, Netbeans, vim (still use this a lot for smaller things) , 
notepad++, etc, and still prefer Komodo.

Unfortunately, it'll cost you about $300 (roughly the same as Zend 
Studio, which was what I used prior to finding Komodo).  I will say that 
for me, it paid for itself quickly.  I can switch between my many 
projects quickly, get prompted with parameters for the functions I 
haven't used in a while (even the non-native functions that are part of 
the project your working on), and commit files or get diffs via SVN or 
GIT with a quick shortcut key, etc.  Having a real IDE made me 
considerably more productive.
