I did check it out, I however am seeking actual end user comments
the search feature will give you a wealth of feedback about any provider, find a few deals that interest you and hit search, there are usually any number of reviews for all the good providers (and even some for the bad)
If you do not need a managed server, TMS can be good also.
Yeah, Jose and TMS are very good. There's also Joes Data Center, Wholesale Internet, BURST and HiVelocity who offer low end servers at low prices. My personal recommendation for a company would be to take a look at the Ubiquity Servers overstock.

Your budget isn't very high but you should still be able to find something along the lines of a Celeron or a P4 system ; a lower end dual core if you're lucky. See what ubhosting.net can do for you. They tend to have stock on these types of servers.
Note that cpanel usually costs $20-30.00 per month so you may want to up your budget to at least $100.

You can get probably a Celeron 2.0 Ghz + 1 GB RAM + 160 GB HDD and 1 TB BW or P4 + 1 GB RAM + 80 GB HDD + 1 TB BW with cPanel. cPanel license costs a lot roughly $25-$45. The normal costs of cPanel license when bought externally is $35 so that leaves you looking for a server at $45 per month which is a very, very difficult to find.

Try volumedrive.com - I've been with them for 3 months and their support is excellent. If you will be able to set up cPanel properly on the server you will be able to configure almost everything via web-interface. Maybe volumedrive guys will help you to install cPanel, I don't know as I was setting it up by myself.
BTW - if you have any technical questions you can PM me, I think I will be able to help you.
