    1) Prometeus (all around good prices, performance and stability, the only small problem is they're in Italy, which for me means +10-20ms ping compared to providers in .de) 2) ProviderService (had a 1.9 EUR for 512MB Xen offer going, and this is from a serious provider that's been around for a long time) 3) EidolonHost (2GB Xen for $7!)

    Honourable Mention: Kimsufi 2G - a 15 EUR dedicated server from OVH, I could just move all my services to that one and cancel all the LEBs, saving a lot of money in the process. But where's the fun in that :)

    1. RamNode
    2. SSDVM
    1. Hostigation
    2. Prometeus
    3. StyleXNetworks

    I haven't used some of my other LEBs enough to rate them yet.

    1: CastleGem 2: EDIS 3: Prometeus

    Honourable Mention: Fitvps

    All three are awesome! I would put them all as 1 if I could. I chose CastleGem as top purely because I gave three to EDIS last time and I need to share the love! Bernhard 's recent generosity may of swung my vote too ;-)

    1. Prometeus (19500 IOPS on SSD, 34 ms from the UK, 60+ MB/s in Europe) 2.-3. I think it's only fair to give points to hosts I've actually experienced, so I prefer not to give these places.
    • worst experience: MiniVPS French hardware => 7-12 IOPS for a week, ticket saying that RAID is resyncing (for a whole week??? I've moved to Prometeus VZSSD5 and never looked back)
    1. Catalyst
    2. Semoweb

    1. RamNode - Amazing Performance, best LEB I have had so far. Haven't use their support yet so can't comment on that. Would be awesome if they can expand to LA to provide a lower latency to users in Asia
    2. Edis - Quite good but depends on location. Some of them is amazing while some others aren't as good. Support respond time varies, sometimes 30m< the most was a day
    3. BuyVM - Good overall, but I'm putting it here as the 3rd since it's out of stock frequently. I've had them for quite awhile but I'm under the impression that it's often overhyped by their customer. Though I'll still use them if they have stock

    HM: - BudgetVM - Very cheap andworks quite well but I heard they have network issues frequently, didn't counter it myself though. Spec is ok (E5 CPUs with 1Gb ram for $5, what more do you want ) - Host1Free - Amazing considering that it's free, I can't imagine how over"sold" it is though

    1. Kiloserve
    2. BuyVM
    3. Hostigation

    A mention (not honourable, not bad either...): YardVPS - My $15/yr OpenVZ still remains online despite them not selling them anymore. Uptime on it is great, but the performance is below average. Still makes for a good secondary DNS server though...

    1. BlueVM - no love for BlueVM? D:
    2. uhh.... i dunno.

    1. EDIS - Solid support, and multiple locations to choose from =D. Id have a whole EDIS node if I could afford it.
    2. VPSCheap - Excellent support! Matched a LEB deal here for me, network is pretty good.
    3. BuyVM - I really like their San Jose location, excellent speeds. Support is decent.

    1. BuyVM - SJ and NY are both A++
    2. NodeDeploy - Great deals, reliable, Gbit.
    3. Catalyst - Fast, cheap, unmetered (in Denver) and in relatively underserved locations.

    HM: - VPS6 (still grumbling over the troubles in Los Angeles) - BlueVM (once I get in a few months I can pop them up into one of the three above spots)
