    What is the difference between this offer and their standard START plan? Am I missing something?

    Very good operator with quality services and their support-team is rocks!
    Channels – 1Gbit/s; Disk speed is around 200+MB/s;
    serverbear.com benchmarks is great too (i forgot to stop some operations with disk, that’s why 130+MB/s (but it’s still awesome);
    http://serverbear.com/benchmark/2013/08/09/i2auxtLHONYejqKo – my benchmark;

    P.S. very good Provider, i was fear when i was buy their yearly plan, but for now i am happy with them. Few days ago i was have problem with hdd, and their change my node to another one, now is ultra-fast, and work very good.

    – fast vps;
    – very good & friendly support;
    – german quality;
    – stable work;

  10. @neqste Disk speed should be much more now! Changed the raid controller today. PCIe x4 is to small :) It should be now around 400/500+ MB/s.

    I must admit I was a bit skeptical, but decided to give it a try. I have a SpeedBox (SSD) since August 2013. Performance is, as far as I can tell, very good.

    Ordered, paid it and thats it….no mail nothing. I guess this order needs to be manually granted?

    This must be a joke. When i do a fresh install on node, i do not get any password send to me, so i can’t do anything with the vps.

    So i file in a complaint trough mail, receive a mail back that a ticket has been created. so i try to log in, but he does not recognize my password, so i do a password reset, i get a mail where i have to click on a link, i click on it and then it says that it sends me a new password trough mail, and guess what….i never receive that mail.

    So i am in a loop. I cant contact them and i cant contact my vps.

    ps, yes checked my spambox 10 times :)

    I had a few doubts because of the spelling errors on the german version of this site. However, in the end I tried the 7.99 € SpeedBox. I have had this box for a few months now and it is quite solid and performs well.

    Were great VPS not it is pure sh*t after merged with another provider. Used to have around 200MB/s speeds when testing with dd. Now it is around 3.5MB/s. So probably moved from SSD to some slow a*s SAN.

    Disk array have failed second time in a year. VPS downtime about one week per issue.
    Support email about troubles has arrived after almost 6 days of downtime.
    Think twice before buying their services.
