Love Dolphin... a lot... even though it still comes with some bugs...
In addition to that, I like Konqueror as well, mainly because it works as browser and File Manager in one.

Voted PCManFM. Switched to it after some issues with Thunar on XFCE.

Caja works well with me. It's got a nice balance between features and lightness. Lighter weight than Dolphin, and has better features than GNOME Files (Nautilus) and Thunar. It includes display of ftp servers.

Always install mc, if it isn't already present.

Been using vifm for a long long time, and it's such an integral part of my system that I'm almost useless without it, heh!

DoubleCmd isn't the lightest, but it can do almost everything you can ask of a FM. It's been my daily driver for a couple of years now . . . .
