i use berryreader..works great just like on the 9700 - although i wish i could tap a feed and have it open instead of having to press the trackpad. hopefully they'll update that.
I prefer it over the built in rss reader and it syncs with your google reader account.Device History: 7250, 8700C, 8800, 8320, 9000, 8520, 9700, 9800 & Playbook

The mobile version of Google Reader works great for me.
I currently prefer it over the Social Feeds/RSS feeds app because you can't specify how many stories to keep nor how long to keep them...and you can't delete them either. After a few days I had hundreds of RSS feeds on my device and it was slowing things down. I uninstalled Social Feeds and will try it again when RIM updates it.
Search this forum for thread titles with RSS and/or Social Feeds and you'll see a lot of discussion about it.

I tried the RSS feed that came with the Torch and like others immediately disabled. I am using Google RSS reader for the moment. Better than what came with the Torch, but still not 100% satisfying for me. Google allows you to choose several different catagories, however doesn't allow you to choose feeds under those categories...all feeds or nothing.
I WANT MY VIIGO BACK. It is the only complaint I have about the Torch (OS version)

I'm surprised at all the hate for Social Feeds. I love the application and I used to be a heavy Viigo user. I have it marked as a favorite and use it several times a day. I think it's very elegant and works very well. Admittedly, I only subscribe to four different feeds. If I had dozens of feeds it is possible that I would miss Viigo.

The RSS part is nice but I hate having hundreds of RSS stories on my device with no way to delete them and no way to limit how many of them are there. If only I could do that I'd surely use it instead of using the mobile web version of Google Reader, which is actually decent enough.
