ServerMatrix is definetly the best for the new person.
Ev1 (as they are now called) are also good but they made many mistakes with their second data center
Dedicated now are also good and reliable
I would reccomend SM though as i have my servers there and always good quality service.

I like rackshack since they have good tech support staffs. Also if there is any problem with copyrights violation or anything they will contact you over phone before they unpluged the server. Servermatrix they never call

Dedicated now is nice and on a pretty good network, not sure about their support.
Servermatrix/the planet: Pretty much the best bang for your buck. I currently have 12 machines with the planet. Never a problem

Ev1 is OK... but should have more "Pizzazz" for its price.
Dedicated Now ... OK... but they screwed everyone moving from NAC, unnecessairily. This is proven by the move of hostdime out of nac. When host dime moved out, some downtime was planned well in advance, but none more then planned was encountered. Thus, Dedicated Now's move was a classic reason of what kind of administration they really have in the inside, and I will not use them.
SM/TP... Good, but support isn't as great as it used to be, and their managed services are sevirely overrated. Their phone support isn't staffed by advanced technicians, and their ticket support takes a seemingly long time.
Sagonet... I love it!! I base most of my operations there and couldn't be happier. Phone support is answered by live helpful people. Network is great (99.999% uptime gurantee, and they live up to it). Also, Network uses a dedicated connection to Level3 with connections to other providers primarily on standby. Based out of Tampa, Florida... Its just great.

EV1 is pretty bad. Their customer support is horrible. And don't expect alot from them. The network connections usually aren't too bad though.
I think you would be best off going with dedNOW. Since, their break away from the NAC, they seem to be running smoothly.
I have a few I use over those companies though.

I was dealing with EV1 and theplanet. It seems to be ev1 is best choice. Once of our customer spammed using our server and the planet disconneted the server for 48 hours which is very bad. EV1 have reconnect in 30 minutes, also they always call us in our cell number.

That is one thing people dont like about The Planet, they give no warning... so make sure you check your server regularly
