Any more benchmarks just pm me and I will run it

TL;DR:
The price/hardware ratio seems good to me. For the time that I'm using the vps I didn't notice any kind of limit on the IO or the CPU.

    There is no 3 euro month package. That package costs £3.50/m if paid yearly. Otherwise, the month-to-month price is £5.

    It is 2,30 GBP monthly which is about 2,89 euro.

    You mean as a price that is available to everyone now, or as a special price that is no longer available? I don't see the price that you cite on their site.

    Ah, okay, so it's a promotion that's still available.

    (If you mention price at all, it's worth clarifying the origin of the price even if that product/price is no longer available.)
