Pro Cheap. Like, really cheap...
With the coupons they offer all the time you really can't beat the price when you consider its a one time fee.
Pro Good variety of OS selections
You can load several variants of Linux (Ubuntu, Cent OS, Debian, etc.) and they even let you throw Windows 7 on them (security nightmare, but whatever). You have to enter your own Win 7 key.

Pro Advanced DDoS protection
DDoS protection available on most plans. And advanced game server DDoS protection available as well.
You get what you pay for. Don't expect stellar customer support or blazing fast boxes. I only use these for really basic things. I have one running GitLab to back up my code, a couple running Cloud 9 so I can dev straight on the server, and one as a proxy for when I'm on public wifi or something. Don't think you are going to run your company's web site on these servers.
Con Difficult, awkward to manage your server's resources
They only provide an upgrade path for CPU, RAM, disk. If you wish to downgrade later, you can't, you must rebuild your server from scratch.
Con Horrible support
I opened several tickets, but I didn't got ANY response.
