Has web hosting become a commodity?

Has basic web hosting become a commodity? I have found so many companies offering essentially the same features for around the same price. Is it necessary these days for the non-power user really spend time and energy choosing the best deal or the best "rated" company?

Feel free to suggest your favorite host but I'm asking MeFi primarily because it seems to me that there is very little difference in the myriad of providers when choosing a basic hosting package.
If you're wondering, I don't run an online business or a high-traffic site. I just want to host a few domains, email accounts, FTP, and a decent file server with unlimited space and bandwidth.
