Vegeta is such an awesome character that is blessed to have been voiced by awesome VA's such as Ryo Horikawa, Brian Drummond and Chris Sabat.

Is it just me or does Ryo Horikawa sound throatier than he did in his early days?

@Zillah You're not the only one. He sounds throatier because he started smoking.

A little unconventional but... my favourite voice is definitely... Nick Landis, AKA Lanipator.

Keith Ferguson played Vegeta once? Now that'd be pretty awesome.

I think both Brian Drummond and Christopher Sabat sounds pretty much the same, the only thing is that one is higher pitched and the other sounds deeper, I do prefer Drummond overall, but Sabat does a decent job as well.

Roger Rhodes is kind of disappointing in the role, since he's played rival characters like Vile before and nailed the role, but as far as Vegeta goes...its rather...unremarkable and forgettable.

Milton James fits his more prince-like attitude, but I'm not sure if he'd really fit the evil or good Vegetas of the show.

The less said about the unknown actor, the better.

@Metabad Whaddaya think of Ryo Horikawa? I think he's good, but not as good. His performance is lacking in sweet, juicy ham.

@BlankSlate Haven't heard much of him, but I did see him in Battle of Gods. He sounded pretty good, but I don't remember anything specific about his performance for the time being aside from his dance scene which I found hilarious.

With respect to English Voice Actors, I always used to swear by Brian Drummond's Vegeta. As of DBZ Kai, however, i'm slowly warming up to Chris Sabat's rendition of the character. His delivery has substantially improved. Additionally, he's taken out that raspiness he used to bring to character and seems to be approximating his natural voice more closely. I will say, however, that i'm not a fan of the deep tonality he brings to the Saiyan prince. Particularly, i'm of the opinion that its difficult for him to sustain this pitch range while attempting certain emotions/dialogue. It's also a bit divergent from the source material. That aside, I tend to prefer it over Drummond's work. Listening to Brian's Vegeta now, it seems to be perpetually angsty and hyperbolic. More likely than not, he was directed in this manner. I think Brian's voice for Lt. Zechs (Gundam Wing) would fit Vegeta rather nicely - perhaps a little less monotone, though.
