I use the cheapo PC59 and change it every 3000-4000 km with no problems. Works for me. I hate the Shimano connecting pins.

How about the squeaks SRAM chains make?

I have no problems with squeaks but I'm an old school guy who prefers "wet lubes". I use Finish Line Cross Country. When I have tried the "dry lubes", such as Ice Wax I have noticed squeaks occur at an earlier mileage.

I've been using the DA chain for many years. I replace it every 2500-3000 mi and then put the old chain on the wind-trainer.
