Just my 2 cents worth...
With 1Password... the vault itself is encrypted. Hence, even if someone had access to your dropbox account... they can only see the encrypted vault... and your passwords are still safe.

1password uses AES encryption... the same as the world banking system.

MiniKeepass is free for iOS. You can open the encrypted database file from Dropbox.

Keepass is open source and there are versions for Windows, Mac and Linux.

Doesn't integrate with browsers like some of the others. A positive for me.

I have had 1Password for a few years now, and love it. They have just released V4 for iOS and V4 for Mac is just round the corner. If you buy V3 now then you will get a free upgrade to V4 when it is available. There is also a free trial on Agilebits website for the current version. I also put together an review of 1Password as well.
