Full Commentary Review:
Originally I sought to use BuyVM for only backups. They advertise themselves for storage and the idea was to use them for that. But I did some "snooping" around and noticed they didn't have a bad i/o read and so I also ordered one of their smaller plans for a few Word Press blogs. Once I was happy with that I slapped vBulletin (v3) and also a copy of phpBB. Both of them smaller sites in members, but generally active.
The load balance is what has impressed me. I've got 2 forums and 3 blogs, all generally active and you would think each one had their own box.
Support was helpful in migrating from one host to another. I didn't ask them to do it, only told them what I was planning on doing with the other VPS and they offered. Which isn't something most VPS providers do. So I found that to be an extra plus.
I think my summary about covers most of everything, but I'll be willing to answer questions upon request
