Only started basing regularly this past year. And mostly what I've been using have been the round, plastic bases that were included in the Reaper kickstarters. Generally I just use them on minis that have trouble standing on their own with a little bit of green stuff and some light flocking. Occasionally I'll use a 2 or 3 inch base to make something more scenic.
Earlier this year I managed to get a bag of crap from Secret Weapon that included a large number of scenic, resin bases. I've only used them a handful of times, but really like them so far. So that's probably going to be a thing for me going forward.
Nice thing is that I'm only making minis for a TTRPG that doesn't get hung up on base size, so no issues with using bases of varying shapes and sizes.

I don't use them that often to be honest.
I appreciate a base that is adapted to a game's map size. Like 1 inch squares for D&D maps or hex shaped for Battletech maps. If my figure is slotted, then I would expect a slotted base. I don't mind recessed if whatever I put on it already fits or can be flipped to avoid it.
One kind I don't like are the smooth or rounded beveled ones. It's a bit of lost space, and if it's a nice miniature, I want to grab it by the base and not the figure itself. Full bevels are hard to grab.
