I'm using FlashDevelop. It's small, free and it fits my needs. The other option is FDT, which costs money but is based on eclipse and regarded as the better flash builder.
btw. fdt pure license can be bought here ($49 instead of $129) in a bundle with a lot of other stuff. it's not advertisment, I'm not geting money for it, I just stumpled accross it.

So far I have used Flex Builder 3, Flash Builder 4 and Flash Builder 4.5 Burrito to write, test and PlayBook build projects. Luckily, the company I work for has purchased those for me.
I have looked around, though, and found a few:
I have always been interested in FDT so what lrrm posted is incredibly interesting... I may have to pick that up for home use.
I am always keeping my eyes open for alternatives that I can use when not at work. I have thought of purchasing the lesser version of Flash Builder because while I look at $699 as a doable business expense, my wife, certainly, does not ( at this point ).
Oh, yeah, you will probably also want to install this:
That can be used to help debug your applications, at least on your local machine. I am not sure about on the device, or in the simulator. I am hoping that they decide to write a version that can be installed on a mobile device as well. ( hint, hint )
