I just received the REI Quarter Dome UL as a Christmas present and already am in love with it. Not only is it easy to enter and exit, very easy to set up (even in the rain and wind), waterproof to a tee, and light as a feather (weighing in at under 4 pounds), but it's also is very appealing to the eye with a sleek body, well-matched colors and smooth curves.
It is a little smaller than the average two-man tent (however bigger than some I've seen) but not so small as to be uncomfortable, to the contrary it stands taller than most I've looked at making it easy to enter and sit up or kneel in. The cross ventilation is excellent, and you can open the top flap on the rainfly while sitting in the tent. I can't wait for my next packing trip! (Hoping to do Bartram Trail in GA this spring).
