Best Network for Freelancers?

What do you think, which is the best freelancers network out there, in terms of job offers, pricing and stuff?

Do you think its oDesk, or eLance or something else?

I do some occasional gigs on oDesk, and i can say it's really hard to get into a job, if you're really not active there.

Ok, that's good to know. Are you satisfied with the contractors on freelancer.com? What are their prices - cheap, realistic or over the top :D?

I love Freelancer.com. I don't like eLance and oDesk. I find them difficult to navigate, and it's extremely hard to get a gig there. At Freelancer.com, you still have to compete with Indians charging $2 per hour, but there are also many employers who are looking for high-quality work.

I have better results with seoclerks.com, they seem to be more established and have a lot of both users and customers. They seem to be up there with Fiverr in terms of popularity too.

What about sites like SEOClerks, too? I get a lot of jobs through there and they're pretty reliable.

Outside of that, I like Elance.

I've heard a lot of good feedback about Elance and Freelancer. I haven't maximized them yet, though.

As a buyer I think you should join SEOClerks, you can find a lot of contracts worth buying depending on your needs. As a seller however there are some things I think need work. My biggest pet peeve is seeing all of the "featured" postings for $1 items. Do the math, it costs $80 to get featured and they aren't selling 80 items so they probably aren't paying the $80 feature cost. Are they friends of the site? Owner projects? Is there a way to get featured for free?
