I like the schneiders best as well. Tiffen NDs sometimes look warm to me. The others have, in my opinion, slightly lesser quality or quality control.

when it comes to filters, I only go Schneider or Tiffen. I bought a Formatt once, and it wasn't too bad, but doesn't compare to the rest of my collection. And by Plarize, I am guessing you mean Polarizer? I have a Tiffen which I like, though the Schneiders I've used have seemed slightly better (though costlier)

That applies to graduated filters and it's just what it sounds like. Soft edge grads will have a very soft blend between the two parts and hard edge will be harder, though also with a blended area.
