Tried a DH till Act 2 on Normal and seems as those guys are gonna be in a lot of pain even on Nightmare.
I am in late Act 1 NM with a DH. I can't say that I have some major problems. Two deaths till now from rare packs.
I am currently level 60 on act2 inferno
Just don't get hit, ever :D
But then... I seriously want to hear who's the first one to beat Diablo solo on Inferno with a melee char. I don't see this person likely to appear on forums very soon. =)

Demon Hunter act 2 inferno here. Everything solo.
It's nearly impossible and is no fun. You have to kite elites around with smoke screen and zerg them down. I got 18k hp atm, I deal a !@#$ton of damage but get oneshotted by everything.
The easiest class for Inferno is mage. Force armor and diamond skin is OP and only let's you take 35% of your maximum HP as damage.
monk/barbarian not best for inferno.
Try any ranged iwho can kite nstead
Fixed on demon hunters, yeah i guess they suck too.
So wizard go that.
Yea, Blizzard had some real balance geniuses there.
Giving wizard a spell that let's them take 35% of their maximum HP as damage instead of getting oneshotted like every other class. Woho, blizzard. Thanks for your godly balance!
Second to that is DH + Witch doctor
Although I wouldn't call these ranged classes having it easy because when you get to Elite pack you have to kite them through the map. You need a lot of space without running into trash. Plus it's basically 1-2 shots dead. There is no getting around this. So you need to pop all your CD while dealing damage and epic kiting. That's the gist of playing ranged solo on inferno. Certain affixes elites are unkillable.
I don't know much gear farming will help this.
My DH is 26k Hp 19k DPS, I add more HP and it helps because I can take at least may be 2-3 hits accidentally and survive.
DH has may be the best survivability. You can spam Smokescreen (invulnerability) for 30 seconds straight. Meaning you can't die for 30 seconds. SS will also break every elites' CC. Try saying that about Wizard. However, once you spent all cooldown you will most likely die if the mob still survive. If your reaction are slow you will most likely die before that 30 seconds too. You still have to kite.
Act 1 inferno is easy, wait until you get to act 2. The brick wall is real.
TLDR there is no easy way out in inferno.
