best money market accounts

Looking for the best money market accounts you've found -- i.e., consistently high interest rates.

I have one HSBC account already and had another at my bank on a special (5.05% interest for 6 months). My 6 months are up and I am NOT impressed with their "market" rate for the money market account. Looking to see if there are any other good accounts out there. Online only is okay (that's what HSBC is).

I am getting 4.5% at HSBC lately. I'm happy with that account and keeping it, but looking to open an account at another financial institution. I noticed ING is at 4.1% now... I know WaMu seems to have some good rates, but only if you also have their checking account. I'm not interested in moving my checking right now.

I'd appreciate feedback on any money market accounts with which you've had experience. THANKS!

I have an e-savings account with Citibank currently 4.7% with a checking account. You don't have to move your account, just open one and link it.

Anything else is a CD right now. If you are not touching your money for another 6 months you can probably get 5.3%
