    This box is not an idler, it's my Plex server. Fucking flawless. I can't express how happy I am with this VPS. I took the option to pay an extra $5/mo to increase the CPU to 8 cores which is why the benchmark shows 8 instead of 4.

  • Yea this is the same offer as a previous one that has very decent value: https://lowendboxes.review/smarthost-kvm-nvme-ssd-budget-vps-flash-sale/

    @dahartigan I just realised the speeds to APAC is decent. That is a very strong selling point for Asian based customers.

    Network is fast to Australia my man :-) I found LA to be the sweet spot. Vegas is also another decent alternative for APAC, but LA is prem.

    I'm breaking @SmartHost 's balls over bringing this to Australia, because that would be the icing on the cake for me.

    He should totally sell the network speeds to APAC because there are lots of Asian folks who want such prices but the problem is that most of the time, it is difficult to find a provider with decent network to Asia from USA or Europe.

    @seriesn's Germany location is pretty good to Asia but from my testing it is not that good to Australia

    Germany is actually one of the worst locations for an Australian, especially from the big H. FYI west coast USA, even Canada, plus sometimes SGP can be the best for AU but even that can vary.

    Very true, unfortunately, that means cables between continents for the interwebs to work. Long cables. 170ms to LA, 80ms to SGP, 300+ to EU, 200ish to Canada..

  • @SmartHost in your offer you state SAS RAID6, but NVME says nothing about that.

    Does it mean there is no RAID for NVME?

    I think the base is very generous and the addons are great value too, especially that extra 4 cores for $5, I can Plex comfortably :-)

  • One thing I didn't mention is I ran that on my Plex server while it was working. It couldn't get any more real-world tested than that imo :-)

    Quite a beast indeed. The extra $5 for the upgrade to 8 cores is totthe worth it.

    @Gravely introduced me to that script over on another provider's thread, it's quite comprehensive and shows some neat details I wouldn't normally catch at a glance like ASN etc.

    how about you at least try to make it look like a special something and not the same regular offer you're running and promoting for weeks now? I have no need so why should I buy it. it'll be available at every time later anyway and you're gonna keep on posting it desperatly - at least that's the impression your prospects get out of it ;-)

    how about at least double the disk or something. or even better come up with something new for e.g. herndon or jacksonville...

    4c, 16G, 150G SSD, 4x IPs, 5TB, $15 p.m - along that line...

    All I was hoping is double (or triple!) the bandwidth special for BF/CM, but I like where your going.

    Indeed, shots fired! C'mon @SmartHost, give us something for Cyber Monday!

  • I was also hoping for higher bandwidth deal, even without the cpu/ram upgrades, but doesn't seem like we are getting that :-(

    And that might be a good thing for the ones already using their services as that's what allows the nodes to perform as well as they do :wink:

    don't buy what you don't need: you'll save money and will end up able to grab a quality VPS when really needed.

  • can you link "KVM NVME SSD Budget VPS" and "KVM LINUX STORAGE VPS"
    for a plex server?

  • Just as the title says I BOUGHT NOTHING during this BF indeed.I think I'm able to get through the Cyber Monday too unless you ....

    Using rclone to mount your storage VPS, absolutely.

  • 1- Does it includes Windows license or need to be paid extra ?

    2- can we add more cpu core of required later ?

    3- Test IP for NL, location ?

  • Since it is impossible to merge two VPS packages into one, it would be nice if you can offer new vps package limited only for Cyber Monday, double all the resources for the double price. I would totally buy that :D
