Now that I am with JaguarPC for almost 1.5 years, I feel it's good to post a review of them.
The overall impression is highly positive. The pre-sales questions were answered quickly. The sign-up process was quick, straightforward and I had my resources available very quickly.
The servers speed/load is most often satisfactory. Downtimes (see also below) are rare and all the services failures are solved more or less quickly.
The Support has helped me immensely with transfer a number of sites from another hosting provider. I must say I haven't seen a Support person at JaguarPC that would be rude, incompetent or otherwise unprofessional. There were cases when the support was not so professional as I expected it to be, but all the issues that could be solved, were solved. Almost always - to my full satisfaction.
The recent downfall of their Demetrius server has given me many unpleasant moments. However, after looking for decent alternative to JaguarPC, I should admit there are hardly many other hosting providers with that level of support and hosting quality.
The resume: I must admit that despite the fact certain recovery procedures at JaguarPC can still be greatly improved, I recommend their services to those looking for professionally run shared/reseller hosting.
I have a reseller acct. at them since July, 2006 and have no intention to leave them in the foreseeable future. However, I do look for backup reseller acct. Just in case.
I can provide (to moderator?) URL(s) of sites I host at JaguarPC if necessary.
Nice review, it sums up the pro's and con's i personally have experienced with JPC in the past. Guess disaster recovery is and will be a major issue, but many other providers will face the same issues when hardware fails. You can protect yourself to a certain extend but murphies law is always around.

All companies will struggle restoring huge arrays. It is the nature of the business no? They take time.
I am totally satisfied with JaguarPC as my hosting provider. I simply have not seen a better value for the dollar anywhere in the world. I have checked dozens of main line VPS suppliers and JaguarPC continuously beats all deals. The recent solarVPS clearance deal here on WHM was a great deal and the only thing I have seen in three years that is close to JPC's deals.
Great review! it is always so refreshing to hear something good in a review. So often, all we get to read is the bad. Sounds like a good company. Thank you for sharing and be sure to let us know who you choose for a backup (if indeed you do).
