Another LetBox KVM VPS Free Trial Review

edited May 2017 in Reviews

Hi there,

I would like to give LetBox KVM VPS Free Trial feedback from @key900. I had fresh install Debian 8 before the test. Below is the specification:

[email protected]:~# wget --no-check-certificate https://vhwinfo.com/vhwinfo.sh -O - -o /dev/null|bash
          ____

VPS specification is very good. I think the CPU should be 1 core. I don't know why vHWInfo read it as 2 cores processor.

Then I do memory usage check:

[email protected]:~# time free -h
             total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
Mem:          1.0G       150M       849M        24M        26M        71M

real    0m0.002s

sys     0m0.000s

Then I do storage usage check:

[email protected]:~# time df -h

user    0m0.000s                                                             
sys     0m0.000s                                          

Then I do apt-get update and upgrade:

Then do DD to test storage performance:

[email protected]:~# dd if=/dev/zero of=sb-io-test bs=64k count=16k conv=fdatasync; rm -rf sb-io-test
16384+0 records in

Storage performace is very good, 1.4 GB/s, this is epic. Then I do benchmark from FreeVPS script to test storage and network:

Network performance is good on 1 Gbps port.

Then I do Nench benchmark to test cpu performance beside storage performance and network performance:

-------------------------------------------------

I don't know why some IPv4 speed test server have zero connection. Maybe @key900 can give the explanation. IPv6 performance is good. CPU performace is very fast.

Then I do PetaByet benchmark:

[email protected]:~# cd && curl -4k https://www.petabyet.com/ptb.sh > ptb.sh && chmod +x ptb.sh && ./ptb.sh 'LA+KVM+Free+Trial' '9999' 'LetBox' '59897xxx' && rm -f ptb.sh

Benchmark URL: https://www.petabyet.com/result/2017-05-16-70c06dd4c3b26301ec4c6b3d71104cac/

Then I do ServerScope.io benchmark:

[email protected]:~# bash <(curl -sSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/serverscope/serverscope-benchmark/master/install-serverscope.sh) -uvc -e "[email protected]" -p "KVM Free Trial|LetBox"

The benchmark is complete!
The report is available here: https://serverscope.io/trials/rBrm

Last but not least is I do trace route from Indonesia. The route seem

C:\Users\Chocolateshirt>tracert la.bau.xxx

Tracing route to la.bau.xxx [144.172.xx.xxx]

Trace complete.

It took 16 hops from my location to VPS in the Psychz Networks. It took more route compared with my VPS in Los Angeles, which is only 11 hops. But overall the VPS performace is very good.

I think my short feedback is enough. Thank you @key900.

    Nothing wrong, but these letbox reviews seem fishy. I wonder if discounts were given in exchange for reviews.

    No intention to bash the provider.

    I'm not sure what is wrong , I have no contact with anyone expected @m3gf to do some network test in China and all prices and offers best low as low we can provide so we can't go lower. As posted we simply asked for feedback.

    What's 'wrong' with him is that providers think nothing of coming here and generating fake bullshit reviews so they can trick people into buying their plans on the belief that they are satisfied. We're a suspicious lot here for good reason, so you can either accept that and play along or simply fuck off to WHT or whatever other shithole you wish to offer your wares.

    That's a particularly childish comment.
