They're history for our shopping cart - the moment I can switch providers, bye bye SagePay. Others may have, but I never had a problem with the old Protx company, but I did expect problems once they were bought by out Sage, I just didn't realise how many there would be. My inbox pings at least once a week with a message from them telling me about some failure in their systems and the cause has been identified and fixed. Yeah right, until next week.
No need to wait for update...
We experienced a technical issue with prSage Pay(TM). This has now been resolved and we apologise for any inconvience caused. We value our customers and thank them for their understanding during this short period of disruptuion.

You could always try
Optimal Payments who we have worked with for 5 years as the gateway for our SaaS platform without an issue.
We have used Total Web Solutions payment gateway without problem for the past 4 years. Worth a try.
Yet Another Alternative Gateway Provider
We've been using SecureTrading at work for many years, both their hosted SSL payment pages and we've been experimenting with their API (not for the faint-hearted). Probably not the cheapest around and the rates aren't the best either, but they're Rock. Solid.
They're also capitalising on the SagePay exodus on their Twitter feed :D
