What type of corner bead to use
 
Finished mounting the drywall and now it's time to work on the corners. I will be working where the ceiling meets the wall, wall corners, and also around doorways for a closet. There are a lot of different types of corner bead products...metal, plastic, paper, paper over metal, etc.

I was curious of what type you all prefer and why.

Fasteners into framing may show later when the framing moves- structurally or with seasonal changes; http://www.usg.com/rc/brochures/shee...e-en-J1996.pdf
