I recently got a Magellan Explorist GC. It's a nice basic unit that Built specifically for geocaching. It will handle just about everything you can throw at it cache wise with exeption of WhereIGo and chirp caches.
It holds up to 10,000 caches in it's database and supports paperless caching with it's field notes capability.
The only drawback is you must plug it into your computer to load new caches and to upload your logs. I use GSAK to load my caches to the GPS.
It's got a very attractive price point as you can usually find it online for about $150. I picked mine up at the local Gander Mountain store. The had it for $150 also and since they were out of stock I got the display model for an additional 20% off.
