after comparing several scopes, i have noticed that some of them are real critical of eye placement.looking at scopes that are about 3 x 9 or 10.which brands are less critical of eye placement?

  Although the eye relief is a bit short,I find my Weaver GS 3-10x40 very easy to get on target with up to 5x.  If this scope had another .5" of e/r and it was constant through out the power range it would be perfect.

I think the Leupold VX3 and FX3 scopes have been very user friendly as far as eye placement.   The Zeiss Conquest also seems to be a favorite.  The Bushnell 4200 seems to be a fine choice at a bargain price.  I dont think you would go wrong with any of those.
Other modely may have useful features like balistic reticles, target knobs so this should give you some idea.  Here is one I like that has some great features.

Burris scopes have amazing non- critical eye- relief when compared to other brands.
Most models have fairly constant eye relief as well. The exception would be the 44mm models, which have a widely variable eye relief.
Burris has a reputation for withstanding abuse and pretty good glass, so I'm not sure why they aren't higher rated on last year's scope scale.

They must not be quite the all around scope that you think they are.

Leupolds are pretty good in this regard.  I am currently testing a new Minox ZA-3 and it seems quite forgiving with eye placement, seemingly more so than the Conquest (which is no slouch either).
