VPS provider recommendations?

I'm looking for recommendations for VPS providers.

Been through a bunch of DCs and providers (I used to do colos of hosting machines, but switched to multiple VPSs a while back) and they all seem to pretty much stink! Good for a while when you sign up but go to crap eventually.

Ideally I'd love to go to Rackspace and just use cloud servers (always been happy with their service, support, and reliability) but they don't offer control panels on the machines, just blank boxes. I'd have to license and install plesk myself and unfortunately that is a bit of a hassle and doubles my monthly cost per VPS machine.

though of maybe godaddy, but the consensus is they suck too. Are there any decent VPS providers who aren't crappy little fly by night resellers of other (equally crappy, but larger) resellers using junk DCs?

KnownHost and FutureHosting for a start! I use both of them and they're excellent!

deeplist, I appreciate your reply and I checked out your website but it doesn't appear that VPS is your main business or that you do a very large volume. Not that there is anything wrong with that, but my benchmark here is Rackspace, who is large publicly traded company.

I do appreciate your reply though.
