I think you mean knownhost? Their prices are good, their service is good, their reputation is good. The only issue is that their virtualization technology isn't so great, in that they use Virtuozzo.
We were at Knownhost before Linode, and while we had no particular complaints (except that their prices were not nearly as good back then), we moved away from them to Linode because we wanted to get off Virtuozzo and onto a real virtualization platform like Xen or KVM (Linode uses Xen). That and we didn't really need the management stuff.
Linode doesn't do managed services, though (their managed service is misnamed, it's really just a monitoring service). So if you want a fully managed solution, knownhost is decent.--
