I'm happy with shimanos. A lot of them come with a plastic insert holding the reflectors to make them legal, which also acts as a shoe platform.
I tried putting these back on, on my kid carrier bike and they worked pretty well. There is an aftermarket version in a frew bikeshops for about $20, you could just clip those in the pedals if you want to use them with running shoes. They cause the pedal to hang the right way up for clips. Biggest problem is they restrict cornering clearance.

I'll often ride with normal spds with shoes if I'm just going a couple of km to the shops at lunchtime and they are fine for road riding.

Don't know about the wind the adjusters out 10 turns advice though. I actually had to tighten my last pair up from standard or they popped out trying to race cars from the lights - embarrassing.

If you go with egg beaters I'd recommend looking to buy the shoe protector plates.
