The isolated apps pool may have better performance than CrystalTech, but it all depends on how much the server itself is utilized. Phone Support isn't always everything, there are many good companies who only offer ticket based systems. That's a good size price gap, and although they are far apart, does discountASP offer something you got to have that CrystalTech doesn't?
The no guaranteed uptime really worries me. Most hosts always have a guarantee. This makes me think that can be up and down all they want and they don't have to compensate you or nothing for it. You may want to look for different hosting providers.
