Deans are the best plug type connectors and you can't get the polarity wrong on them.
Otherwise a lot of drivers use the Corally style tubes and these work really well.

deans = simple, BUT over time (6+months), they do lose contact and get loose.

corally - contact stays consistant, but can reverse = blown ESC, also looks cleaner

For ease of use, deans, there is no way you can get the polarity wrong. They are just dead simple to use

Tubes (Corallys) can be wired incorrectly which is very bad however if you get them right they will last longer

I prefer to use deans, but its jsut what I'm use to, I have had coralys in the past and had no problems with them

Deans, IMHO. Simple, safe and low resistance.

I did use deans until I melted one when I started to run brushless, I now use corally. Choose what ever suits you, both are just as good as each other.

or to save a loose connection during a race you could just solder together your esc and battery
