Renters' Hindsight 20/20

I just learned -- the HARD way -- that I should have renter's insurance. Seeking recommendations for companies and policies, please.

My Brooklyn apartment was broken into and rifled through last night, but all they took was my laptop and my roommate's. (Still sucks, because that means that everything I've written for the past TEN YEARS is completely gone now.) Fortunately, replacing the physical computer was easy enough (I'm logging on via my brand new dell), and was only half the cost of what I paid for the old one (purchased three years ago), but I am kicking myself for not having insured the old one, even so.
So yeah, I should do that. But the only other person I know who has renter's insurance is a friend who got screwed over by his policy, so I'm looking for recommendations for good comanies to work with, policy advice, and any other tips. Thanks.
(Oh -- and yes, I'm also going to start backing up my files now. That was just my own damn fault.)
