With any provider, it really is a case of managed expectations as much
as anything. We have several boxen with ev1/rackshack and are quite
pleased. Sometimes things seem to take longer, but that is often our
impatience with an emergency issue.

Considering they are UNmanaged servers, their support really is on the
ball. Just remember that the more you can do for yourself the easier
things will go for you.
