I have also tried most of the programs mentioned, Yojimbo, DevonThink, SOHO Notes, EagleFiler, etc. The one I settled on has not been mentioned yet: Together. It is simple to use, easy to get things in an out of, and does not use a proprietary database format, instead keeping everything in a folder format. (This means it might not be quite as quick as say, Yojimbo, but I like knowing that I am essentially keeping everything in its appropriate format.)

It is also very good at quick notes. With a keyboard shortcut you can open the sidebar (to which you can, if you wish, drag any kind of file to import), and type a text note that will be dated and can be tagged very easily.

I find this program invaluable, and while not perfect, would recommend it over all the other "manager" programs mentioned above.
