Great service, gives me piece of mind. One thing I really don't like: they set the default notification downtime to 2 min or greater. I missed a total of 13 minutes of downtime for our blog over a three month period back before we moved it over to the rails app because there was basically one minute here, one minute there. I was pretty angry when I found out they weren't notifying me. But then I realized that it probably makes sense. But they should be more transparent and make it clear that there is a 2 minute window when you first set up alerts.
Pingdom is a tool I use close to deployment of new apps or sites and periodically used to check the health of an app or site over time. The analysis of request times, assets and more is second to none.
For making sure everything is up, and telling us when it's not. We tested a few services and pingdom is still the quickest to recognise downtime.
