My current favourite Visual Studio theme is Brad Wilson’s Dark Visual Studio. It is not too gaudy, uses a nice font (Consolas) and is easy on the eye.
For pre-Vista/Win 7 PCs you need to install the Consolas Font Pack for Visual Studio from Microsoft.

Other Visual Studio themes can be downloaded (or designed) from the excellent studiostyles.info website.

If you get a NotSupportedException of ‘WaitAll for multiple handles on a STA thread is not supported when using multi-threading’ in an MSTest project your need to modify the test project from being STA to MTA.

For Visual Studio 2008:

Re-opening the solution and running the test again will now work without the exception.
