I'm not a huge fan of testing, until the debian release team announce "it's cooked", but that means it's no longer testing...
unstable gets my vote over testing, freeze or not. packages just go awol from testing which can be annoying - it only comes into it's own as a mixed testing/unstable system IMO.
Another problem with testing at the moment is that too many noobs are running it - and when it breaks, or something doesn't work the same way as 'buntu, they whine and complain (usually at forums.debian.net).
Stable has always been my main install but after retirement I tried Testing and Unstable and prefer Unstable over Testing too. But do believe Wheezy will be the sweet spot for my two year old computer as the 3.2 kernel as solved all my error messages in dmesg.
