I Need Your Opinions On Pedals!Indurain 03

I am in the market for a new set of pedals. I live in a busy city where I am in and out quite often, so easy in and out is a must. I am considering the Shimano DA-7750, and the PD-R600. From the reviews of the Record pedal it seems that it does not suit fast get-aways, is this really the case. Out of the three pedals which would you choose? Thanks for the help,

I can't think of a better pedal than the $60/pr, 200 gr. Crank Bros. Eggbeaters. I have them on 2 of my three bikes, one of which I use primarily for 3+ hr rail-to-trail type rides.
Four sides to clip into - it's foolproof. I'm considering putting them on my road bike as well. I'm just not sure how these would feel on those long out of the saddle climbs.
On my longest rides (4 hrs.) I've never had "hot spots", but there's only about 3 minutes worth of out of the saddle type climbing there.
Although it looks as though there's next to nothing as far as contact area, on areas of rocky single track where you don't want to clip in (and that's a near impossibility as it's hard to not clip in-they are so easy)the security of the feel of surface contact is surprisingly good.

Shimano finally has it right- again with a Look copy, but easy and positive entry, no squeaks, easy adjustment- it is like they aren't even there... I don't know that I would spend an extra $100 for the DA pedals. Pedals are such "wear items" anyway... I'd get the Ultegras (which I did).
Get the dura ace pedals there the bomb!nmthe bull
