opinions are like _____

Anyone have any experience with a paid 1and1 account? I’m eyeballing their dedicated servers that start @ $49/month. I’ve heard support is good for 1and1′s paid customers and they’re touting full root access to the server, which is what I’m after I think. I just wonder if these boxes are capable of running as a “reseller” type account. Need to do some research and find out, but if any of you know of anyone who knows someone who knows someone that has a 1and1 dedicated box, hook me up with them please.
