This. I usually raise 3x, and I go with the old adage sometimes "If I don't flop to it, I'm through with it". It's usually dependent on a lot of other factors, like Dactal has stated (range, equity, image, et al). Generally, on position, I'm playing them late, SB and BB. Depending on stack sizes and my opponents, however, I'll open raise in middle position.
