Tough call. I like most sci-fi, even bad sci-fi. However, a few that have really impressed me:

* _More Than Human_ by Theodore Sturgeon.
* _Use of Weapons_ by Iain M. Banks.
* The original _Foundation_ trilogy by Asimov.
* The _Neuromancer_ trilogy by William Gibson.
* _The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy_, by Douglas Adams, except _Mostly Harmless_ which was pretty poor.
* _Ender's Game_ by Orson Scott Card. _Speaker for the Dead_ wasn't half bad either, but the series wilted quickly after that.
* _Dune_ by Frank Herbert. The series went downhill very fast after the first book — _Dune Messiah_ was still tolerable, but past that it became increasingly silly until it became a weak parody of itself.
* _Solaris_ by Stanislaw Lem.
* _Blood_ by Michael Moorcock. (Does this count?)

There's no way I could rank these, but if I had to, _More Than Human_ would likely be at #1.
