Should probably be in the Apps forum, but whatever, lol.
For the Evo, Swype isn't AS good because that means you have to swipe longer... but that's slightly insignificant.
However, it is still one of the easiest to use keyboards. Only need one finger and you can type as fast as normal. Swype isn't necessarily faster, but it feels that way and is easy to use.
Swiftkey... I haven't gotten used to it, but some people swear by it. It basically predicts your next word and is pretty accurate. I'm not a big fan.
Smart Keyboard Pro... a really good multitouch keyboard on the market... costs a couple bucks but has a LOT of features... and a LOT of settings.
Try to look for a multitouch keyboard on XDA... there are a couple ones that you can find for free. The Droid X keyboard is also multitouch, and it's available if you search here or XDA. Also, check out HTC Ime Multitouch.
Evo - MIUI 1.1.28
^-- Wow, old signature. Evo3D waiting for Samsung Galaxy S 3 now.

I can't deal with Swype. I've tried it again and again, but although it's fast, it's not nearly as accurate as I'd like for it to be.
I've been using HTC IME on my Captivate for the last week, and I LOVE it. It's quick, the predictions are mostly correct, and because it has special characters on press and hold, it makes text entry that much faster. Plus, the popup time is customizable, so if you want it to happen extra-quickly, you have that option. The only issue I've come across is that it does definitely lag when either haptic feedback or sounds on keypresses are turned on, but that's easy enough to fix - I just turn them off. I do miss having feedback of some sort when pressing they keys, but I think the speed with which I can type more than makes up for that.
