SAA's and their barrel lengths are like most things with some variety.. everybody likes what they likes..
most will agree that the 5.5 is the most commonly seen for sale and likely the most owned. In almost every type of gun, the shortest barrel tends to be the most sought after, hardest to find, and most expensive, and opposite with the longest barrel. When you have to pick and own just one SAA, I would also go with the 5.5 for best balance and accuracy. The 4 3/4" is nice if you are wanting that cowboy feel and a shave a little weight off .. quick pointing and shoot.
Traditionalists and collectors like myself, have to own the long barreled 7.5" because it is the original configuration.
