The important point is that there is no universal "best" hash function. What makes a "good" hash (i.e. minimal collisions, not too costly to compute) depends very much on the nature of the data you are hashing. A good hash for peoples' full names may not do too well on their SSNs or phone numbers for example. And of course, the size of your hash table has a huge influence on performance. There are lots of good discussions (and some not so good) to be found if you search things like "best hash function".
