Deadpoolers Providers -> This is not a give me a vps and I'll give you a review thread, this is a question aimed at the community.

What providers are out there that need reviews?

I'd be willing to purchase one or two and I am sure a couple others would as well.

Would it not make more sense to simply review the providers you've used?

Buying a VPS just to write a view is pointless as you wont be using it correctly in order to write a proper, unbiased, balanced review.

Has there been an IPXcore review from you and I missed it?

Exactly.

I agree, to an extent, that purchasing a VPS just for a review isn't entirely perfect.  That said, it might be a pretty good way to get a general idea.  I mean, who doesn't test drive a car before they buy it?  Who doesn't look at crash test ratings?

A VPS bought just for reviewing isn't entirely pointless.

hmm... I've never read crash test ratings for any car I've bought... I've also only ever test driven 1 car out of all the cars I've bought.

Every VPS that I've purchased in recent history has worked fine when first deployed.

The real test of a provider is consistency and reliability over time.

The truly valuable reviews are those that span months.

Buy > Review is IMO pretty much meaningless.

^^This and what Martin said, these kind of reviews tend to look suspect and don't really do the provider any favors.  Just my 2c.

I agree that purchasing in order to provide a review may not lead to the best route for the provider, for a couple of reasons. Obviously you won't have had extensive experience with that provider either.

However, having said that, if any VPN.sh customers who have been with us for a while fancy giving us a review, please do as I'm sure they'd be more than welcome in the reviews section :).

We'd like reviews... Our customer base seem to just use their servers and don't talk much... lol...

Buy one of ours, test it out like you need to.

To me, a review of like 1 month would generally be fine. I'd like to see some from 1 month, 3 months, 6 months and a year...

Heh, on the other hand no news is good news - they're not complaining at least :p.

I don't think some folks know what all is inolved with a quality review of a host.

In my opinion, it should take at least a year of constant monitoring, and with running production sites. Or at very least, dev sites. (Sometimes dev sites are more stressful than active sites. No caching, etc.)

Simply creating a review method can be an exhaustive process.

While I agree, it would limit reviews to nearly ZERO.

One year with a provider could prove very different from the next year for many reasons.

I take reviews into consideration for all sorts of things.  For hosting I like to see the responsiveness of ticketing/staff and how they deal with problems.  That's far more important than IOPs, dd tests, core counts and CPU performance; and it will always be more important.
