I preferred Maguire as Peter, but I liked Garfield more as Spider-Man.
Maguire was okay, but I never really felt he was playing Peter Parker; rather, I felt that Peter Parker was reinterpreted as a Tobey Maguire type of character to accommodate the actor. Whereas Andrew Garfield played a character much closer to the Peter Parker I know. Maybe a bit edgier and angrier than Peter is usually written, but that's actually pretty consistent with how Stan Lee wrote him in the early issues, as a guy with a chip on his shoulder about the bum deals life kept handing him and a desire to show up his naysayers.
