Except mentioned gq, which is quite fast, although buggy a little bit,
I'd recommend also ldapvi tool (under shell, actual editor configrable via
$EDITOR env variable, can use other than vi if you wish), and
excellent eclipse plugin for ldap directory - slow, but magnificent,
includes ldap filter editor, built-in userPassword encryption, automatic
decoding of base64 strings and more conveniency-oriented features
It's named Apache Directory Studio, and stand-alone version (without full
eclipse) is also available.

There are others too:
But unfortunately most of them are unmaintained.
I'd not use these even often recommended:
- Gawor's LDAP Browser/Editor (bugs in DN handling)
- gq (AFAIK rather unmaintained)
- even JXplorer has bugs regarding schema handling leading to situations
where you can't do anything right (attribute types with more than one
NAME in it, try an entry where 'uid' must be set on OpenLDAP).
Which one you prefer depends on what you really need, e.g. who's going
to use it.
P.S.: Regarding "best": Being the author of web2ldap I'm biased... ;-)
