I used Microleaves years ago when you could buy 5 proxy ports, and did not have to make the hefty investment of 25 ports minimum. I liked their services back then, they accomplished what I needed and the cost was in my budget. Lately I have tried BlazingSEOLLC, StormProxies, and RotatingProxies, and I got good enough results, however it seemed that youtube and google would often fail. So I bought the Microleaves 25 port plan with their standard features for $125. I had the same problem Youtube and Google would not resolve properly with the bots that I use. So I got a refund (they were quick about it too), and then I upgraded to the "Special Backconnect Proxies" that are twice the cost for 25. I paid $250 (just a few days ago). I am still seeing a ton of problems with Google and Youtube. But on top of that 18 out of 25 ports fail consistently (and not always the same ports, it rotates), and the ping times are atrocious. I am getting between 995ms to 8900ms (see my screenshot). I currently paying 10x as much, and getting far less quality. For reference, I did adjust the settings to allow youtube, geotargeting, google etc at Microleaves, and my datacenter dedicated server has speeds of 200mbps down and 50mbps up, with little give or take, it's pretty consistent. My other proxies far out perform Microleaves, and are MUCH cheaper. Microleaves offers no discount, and there is practically no support on Weekends. I waited for 3 days for them to respond after I wrote them Friday. They have a 3 day refund policy, but if you have to wait 3 days for support to respond, then you lose out on that potential refund I suppose. See my screen shot of my proxy test via scrapebox.
