Knitting needles?

Since I am rather (extremely) new to the whole knitting thing I am wondering about knitting needles. At the craft stores there are several different kinds to choose from. Bamboo, which most of mine are, the clanky metal/aluminum or whatever they are and plastic. I actually have some of all three, but mostly use the bamboo. Is there a difference? Is one better to use over the other? Different books tell me different things so is this just a personal preference or what? One woman I talked to told me she didn't like using the wood/bamboo ones because they sometimes splinter and it catches the yarn another told me she ONLY uses those and someone else told me she hated using the metal ones because they are too noisy. Are some easier to use than others?
