Black Diamond - ATC
A pretty standard and really commonly used belay device.
It's nice and slick and easy to use, but it may be worth considering the ATC - XP, if you are going to be using half ropes or a skinny single as the ATC is a bit too slick for some people on thin ropes.

This was my first belay device and was good for learning on as it helps promote good safe technique. It does however have quite a smooth action so when using skinnier ropes or belaying heavier partners it can require more effort to catch safely. I have since got a petzl reverso that does guide mode but also has teeth of extra friction and its great.
This is by far the most popular belay device at the climbing wall where I train. It is convenient, simple and easy to use.
This a very light basic belay device, very simple to use and works well with even large rope diameters.
