You really need to name names, not all in-text ad companies are the same.
I've had good success with Vibrant, tried nearly all the others and in my niche they don't perform nearly as well. Vibrant has been "down" the last year or so for me but overall it's still very worthwhile to run the ads (approx. 15% total revenue is in-text). It supplements the AdSense income and no one complains. Mind you, I don't show in-text ads to logged-in members.
Prior to being with Vibrant, I was with Kontera for years as I had a fixed CPM which was fantastic. When the fixed CPM was taken away, the result was a big drop and that led me to test out Vibrant and make the move.
If you're not happy with one in-text company, try another. Then another. Find what works.
nomis5, how are the in-picture ads working? I haven't tried them yet due to I don't really care for them...
