Definitely the best password manager for OS X. That said, I'm not a huge fan of the UI. It's good, not great. It lacks the "modern" OS X/Leopard look and feel, especially in the source pane.
Adding wallet items is a bit clunky. I'm not a big fan of the ProjectBuilder/Xcode-style drop down that appears. Too many disclosure triangles to open to find what you want. I think a Pages-style template chooser would be much more efficient.
I'd also like to be able to view different types of wallet items (ie: all software licenses) easily. Right now, the wallet is a bit of a catch-all.
Importing is very difficult unless 1Password specifically supports a particular file type or program. How about a generic importer for text files? Let the user decide how to map the fields. I'd love to migrate all of the software licenses and other info I have stored in another program. Unfortunately, 1Password won't let me - which keeps me from fully utilizing it (I'm not re-typing several hundred entries).
I've suggested a three-pane interface to the developers: source pane -> results list -> data view. While very friendly and responsive, I don't think they much care for the idea. Pity, because I think it would make the program far more visually appealing and simpler to use. But that's just me. I'd be happy with some improvements to the Wallet and importing. It's still a good program and definitely a step above the Keychain, but not quite five stars yet...
