    For me personally, it's been faultless. The server blows away ANY VPS I've used (and I've used £100/month VPS' in the past).

    The network is rock solid, very low pings from the UK
    Code:
    [mworthington@artemis ~]$ ping host.mattwservices.co.uk
    PING host.mattwservices.co.uk (91.121.86.15) 56(84) bytes of data.
    64 bytes from host.mattwservices.co.uk (91.121.86.15): icmp_seq=1 ttl=46 time=16.1 ms
    64 bytes from host.mattwservices.co.uk (91.121.86.15): icmp_seq=2 ttl=46 time=15.4 ms
    64 bytes from host.mattwservices.co.uk (91.121.86.15): icmp_seq=3 ttl=46 time=15.6 ms
    64 bytes from host.mattwservices.co.uk (91.121.86.15): icmp_seq=4 ttl=46 time=15.9 ms
    Even then showing other people the specs, the only thing they pick up on is the fact it's not got ECC RAM installed (which you would get if you went with the OVH hosting....but that's a lot more per month).

    It has proper server grade SSD's installed:

    Code:
    [root@host ~]# hdparm -I /dev/sda1
    
    /dev/sda1:
    
    ATA device, with non-removable media
            Model Number:       INTEL SSDSC2BB120G4                   
            Serial Number:      BTWL33400CMA120LGN
            Firmware Revision:  D2010355
            Media Serial Num: 
            Media Manufacturer:
            Transport:          Serial, ATA8-AST, SATA 1.0a, SATA II Extensions, SATA Rev 2.5, SATA Rev 2.6
    http://ark.intel.com/products/75678/Intel-SSD-DC-S3500-Series-120GB-2_5in-SATA-6Gbs-20nm-MLC

    I've got 4 additional IP's, and have also set up IPv6. Once the setup cost has been covered (spread this over 6 months), it will be costing me £40 a month for the server.

    I know there are some from XenForo Community :)
    Of all the server that I've use, from Shared Host, Cloud Site, Cloud Server, VPS, DO, I don't have any regrets with their service.
    When I'm still on Knownhost and Nimbus I always hit by DDOS and with SoYOuStart nothing can ever take down my site anymore :)

    I regret very much I choose SSD-1 package here: http://www.soyoustart.com/us/SSD-servers.xml
    When SSD-2 has more powerful CPU and more threads :(
    I experience slowness just today when I run User batch delete 10K+ user with zero post :(
    During that period, posting is ridiculously slow and deleting user takes almost 1 hour for 1K user reason I cancel it.
    I will re-run the batch delete again later 4AM.. :sleep:

    nice always wondered why you opted for 2/4 cpu/thread version when 4/4 version was only a few dollars more :)

    New range has been added, so with their new pricing, I can now get the E3-1245v2 and 3x120GB SSD, so I've just purchased another server. Only just renewed the old one, so I'll have that for a month to play about with.
