It depends on your requirements. The command line ftp client is fast and can be used in scripts. The secure ftp (sftp) client provides encryption - or do you need a gui?

I would prefer a gui. I am using GFTP and it works for downloading but when I upload files they do not seem to upload fully. If someone downloads it they can't play it because the whole file is not there.

I don't really think there is a best because it depends on your needs and preferences. I personally prefer kasablanca and gftp.
