I don't see any advantage in being your own CA, because whenever someone visits a site with an SSL cert from your own CA, a warning will pop up in the user's browser...

I've always used InstantSSL ( www.instantssl.com ), never had problems with them. They used to be very cheap, but they've increased their prices now , but they are still among the cheapest.
Other CAs are Verisign, Thawte, Geotrust, Entrust, and RapidSSL.
