I've been using a very cheap model purchased on eBay for almost 2 years now with no problems. It does everything I expect and the price can't be beat. A search for D300 remote will quickly find many.

I too am using a cheap one I bought from B&H a few years ago. Works great. No problems. They don't sell the same one I bought but they do have an inexpensive wired release for the D300. I prefer the wired release because it doesn't require a battery.

Since you list "good" as your primary criteria and not cheap, I will recommend Pocket Wizards. While they are expensive, they are also reliable and have a range up to 1600 feet.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

It would be helpful to know a couple of more things:
Wired or wireless.
IR or RF for wireless.
Do you want intervalometer control?
Do you want an interrupt release or intruder release?
Do you want lightning detector?
Do you want to control strobes?
Are you mixing studio and Nikon Speedlights or Canon Speedlites?
Do you want to control multiple devices with a time delay?
Nikon units are expensive but they are very well built and take a fair amount of abuse.
There are 3rd party units that work as both wired and RF wireless.
