The earlier posts were talking about sourcing stainless fittings.
I'm sure there are fine brass QDs as well; my only experience has been with the garden hose brass QDs from Home Depot and I haven't been impressed. I've have however noticed the quality on the garden hose QDs varies greatly; I have two different brands where one is as light as plastic and the other is quite hefty in comparison.
Previously I was messing around with clamps so the QDs (stainless or otherwise) were a great addition for me.
