I understand your apprehensions, friend. I myself had a bad experience a couple of years ago, and since then, have steered clear of Unlimited offers. However, some hosts like MediaTemple and JustHost do provide great services on their Unlimited plans. And the company I'm hosting with now, IX Web Hosting, is also giving me good value for my money, despite the fact that it has listed everything as Unlimited. It's a crude marketing ploy, I know, but it is understandable that they'd use it, seeing the competitive nature of the hosting industry in general.
