I have been hosting my sites on (& referring all clients to) MediaTemple for the last several years; it has (generally) been a pleasant experience - MT's control panel is second to none, and support is quite good, too. The only issue I've experienced with their hosting is speed. MT's hosting occasionally gets flaky, and results in very slow load times. I've noticed this happening for a few days every couple months, but for the last couple weeks my sites have been taking an average of 3-4 minutes to load. MT's support have basically refused to look into the issue, and have instead tried to up-sell me some more expensive hosting services. The most they did was explain how their load-balancing worked, but did not offer any solution to what is clearly a problem on their end. Yesterday I moved all my sites to a new VPS at Linode and am happy to report that (so far) their services have very much impressed me, and my sites are back to loading at a reasonable speed!
