Tell me everything I need to know about infant formula!

First child is on her way in a few months and we'll be bottle-feeding. (Nursing is not possible for personal reasons). Trying to decide what kind of formula to use. Asked our doctor and the delivery hospital and they did not "endorse" any one over the others (although I sensed an unofficial bias towards Similac).
For those of you who have bottle fed, any advice whatsoever on the subject would be appreciated. In particular:
-Recommendations on brands / varieties? (every brand seems to have like 20 variations, its bind-moggling)
-Advice on balancing price vs. convenience between pre-mixed, powder, individual serving bottles/cans, etc.
-Tips on how to keep it healthy, safe, sanitary, fresh, etc.
-Tips on how to keep the price down
-Tips on how to keep the hassle level down (regarding mixing, sanitation, storage, purchasing, transport, etc.)
-Anecdotes on any "system" you might have developed to make your life easier in formula-ville
Thanks in advance...
