After getting fed up with rackspace and their utter stupidity, I went with DigitalSpace(http://digitalspace.net).
Why? Two reasons:
1. I know someone who already had their server there and vouched for their great support and whatnot.
2. They're small and personal.
They don't have HUGE bandwidth, but their DS3 isn't anywhere near capacity. Their prices are comparable to Rackspace, and you can always work out custom packages.
The main selling point to me was their support. Sure, they've only got a few admins .. but they dont care if you call their personal cell phone in the middle of the night. Moreso, I ordered parts for my server to their facility and they put it together, installed Slackware, and hooked it up in less than two days.
Some other hosts I've heard good things about:
hurricane electric (he.net)
Basically, the feeling I got with rackspace was:
"What? Your server is down? Okay, thanks for letting us know. We'll take care of it when we feel like it because we're a big huge company with thousands of clients to deal with."
/me contemplates starting a colocation provider review site.
// eyeP.net -- dynamic dns
PS. I recommend emailing to get the current pricing, their website is a little out of date because they are in the process of expanding.
