It sort of depends entirely on what you're using them for. Like every Eldar unit, the different Skimmers all serve a variety of different roles.
The best all-purpose Skimmer would, in my opinion, be the Falcon because of the Pulse Laser's general effectiveness against anything, with the added bonus of being able to equip just about any other weapon to deal with whatever else you may want to fight, from MEQ's to swarms.
a s9 ap2 blast template is never a bad thing to have. especialy since it doesn't "whoops it when nowhere!" anymore. plus the prism has the range to keep out of trouble on just about any battlefield.
I went for the wave serpent, as far as this list goes, because keeping full squads of aspect warriors safe inside a fast skimmer is priceless. Every other choice has something else in the army that can do the same job.
Never apologise for asking questions young seers, through asking
questions we find answers, and through those answers we gain
knowledge of ourselves and the universe around us

I voted Wave Serpent, because they are now an incredibly versatile unit. You can have it be Anti-Tank or anti-Infantry, or some of both depending on who you are transporting. They do a great job of getting the right units to the right spot on the battlefield, especially with their 24 inch (or 36 inch ) move.
Don't get me wrong, the other ones are great, I particularly love my shiny spears, but WS is the one I'm trying to find more ways to put into my army.
Fire Prism ftw. Especially when you fight tyranids alot, those large blast weapons sort of help against them ( because they are without number every time ). So with a large blast I don't have to throw more then one to hit roll.
Fire prism... skimming nastyness...
Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forget about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.

I would have voted for Wave SERPENT but I didn't see it on the list.
Just being a jerk.
Seriously though - 36" moving transports? yes please.
