What is your favorite 3-pin connector - to use in your projects?

I have migrated to different favorites over the years and I like lots of different connectors for different reasons and different applications, but at any given time I could probably always pick a favorite.

I am always looking for better solutions, so please explain why you like a particular connector in the comments.
