This seemed like the best place to ask about site monitoring. My company manages a bunch of urls and we want something relatively cheap and reliable.
We're looking at this one: http://portal.monitis.com/web/guest/ It looks great but I'd like to have a testimonial if I can get one.
Also if anyone else has a better suggestion please let me know.

I have reviewed a lot of different monitoring services in the industry and pingdom is by far the cheapest. Well not cheaper than free but you get the point. I wouldnt say they are the most advanced however, but then again you're looking for cheap and reliable so pingdom fits the requirements.

Try http://alertra.com/. Been using their service for quite a while and it's quite reliable. Not too costly either.

I use Are My Sites Up? because it's free. The free version has no features but it's reliable and does the job.
You have to log in once every few months or your account will be deleted.
Here is a comparison of the different versions: http://aremysitesup.com/premium/

Pingdom and hyperspin. Hyperspin is best IMO both prices and services are good.
