If you are using a mac, there are a couple of really good alternatives: the open-source and fantastic BibDesk (http://bibdesk.sf.net) and the commercial Papers (http://mekentosj.com/papers/). I personally am a big fan of BibDesk.
If you are on Windows/Linux, I guess JabRef(http://jabref.sourceforge.net/) is a pretty good option. I am sure people will suggest others.
