i like my action really low. i dont have anything to measure them right now.. on my ibanez, the action is mediumish. my roommate's squire had awful action, so he got an epi les paul with basically perfect action. my main guitar is my gibson les paul, and if you've ever played one of them.. they generally have very low action.

it's easier to play with low action, but you do lose sustain like somebody mentioned. most beginner to even very good guitarists tend to have action as low as their guitar will allow without fret buzz, but you'd be surprised how high many incredibly good guitarists have their strings. yngwie, for instance, has rather high action.
