I picked one of these up: http://www.lowendbox.com/blog/quickpacket-49month-dual-xeon-l5420-16gb-ram-1tb-hard-drive-in-atlanta/

I could not be happier with the service and the support is excellent! They are rivalling my box with ServerMaina.

Great company to do business with, and performance of the network is perfect!

If you're considering a new dedi, they are definitely worth the money!

    I just have to ask, how does a current 1270v2 (what SM currently offers, well used to before the 1240v2 offer kicked in) compare to a L5420? I mean don't get me wrong, I am not saying anything about QPS as a company but that line made me go... what?

    Its like saying I got a VW for 200, but for 400 I can get a Ferrari... but nah!

    @goexodus no addons. That's the 1TB drive stock.

    Only things I added were IPs and a Gbit port.

  • @qps continues to impress.

    Hope everyone with the recent LEB offer from them is satisfied.

    Definitely a long term watch for me. (I am a tad picky about small operations in the dedicated/colo offering). Tend to deal only with companies with bigger operations and big staff.

    The L5420 gets destroyed, revived and destroyed again on per core performance, it's not really worth discussing.

    Still a fairly amazing offer, though.

    @casper253 Why should they reinstall servers for free, it costs more in admin time than the server is worth.

    They should look into getting KVMs for every server.

  • @Jacob so you gonna charge $35 reinstall os fee to your client and every time you reinstall their os you charge them $35. They told me just delete the files and I did and it stop working.they
    Charge me $30 per hour to find what wrong with the server or pay $35 reload the os.
    They charge $35 per hour if you ask them for support or ask to much question about the servers.

    Or pay extra for a managed service instead of buying from an unmanaged provider and complaining when you break it.

    We offer free OS reloads within reason. You were abusing that service, so we had to start charging.

    You kept unpacking the SolusVM OS templates to / and overwriting your OS install, causing the OS to have problems. We gave you instructions multiple times on how to properly download the OS templates, but you continued to either not understand or ignore our instructions.

    Our servers are unmanaged. That means you must be comfortable managing the server yourself, or hire a management provider to do it for you. We make this absolutely clear.

    Wow. This is seriously a hilarious post.

    I'd say for you look into a dedicated server with IPMI with Media. Then you can install the OS yourself. Seems like you don't really know what you were doing and demanded an OS reload a ton of times. OS reloads aren't as easy as you do it with VPSes and actually take time.

    Just to clear things up - the fees here are misquoted. Our labor rate is $75 per hour, our OS reload charge is $35. We don't charge the OS reload fee unless you've already had quite a few in a short period of time. If your server includes a KVMoIP, you are welcome to complete the OS reload yourself. Alternatively, for servers that don't include KVMoIP, you are welcome to borrow a Spider KVM to complete the OS reload for no charge.

    Quick question @qps, does the dedicated KVMoIP include media? I haven't logged into my IPMI/KVMoIP yet and I'm actually quite curious.

    Yes, all of the ones we have include virtual media. You can either redirect a local drive (such as a CD-ROM or flash drive) or mount an ISO. I think the Dell ones allow for up to three mounted at once, the SuperMicro two at once, and the Spider KVM allows for one at a time.

    Not to sound harsh, but since you weren't capable of loading a SolusVM template on to your server, I'm pretty sure you wouldn't have been capable of doing your own OS reload.

    We told you before we did the last OS reload, but you continued to not follow instructions and unpacked the SolusVM OS template over your operating system again.

    Bottom line - you ordered an unmanaged server but weren't capable of managing it yourself.

    How long do you want @qps to put up with you? If you were my client you'd have been gone a long time before.. I have no doubt @qps is in the right, after all it is an unmanaged service and you couldn't manage it.

  • Well. I believe this is pretty much a open and close case.

    @casper253, look into a KVM VPS before you go full-out for a dedicated server. OS Reinstall takes more time and money on a dedicated server than on a KVM. Once you feel comfortable with a KVM and working with a KVM VPS then think about moving on to a dedicated server.

    Or, just go to Kimsufi/OVH and buy yourself a dedicated server there because they have automated OS reinstalls.

    Well alright then.

    Once you're comfortable with the KVM VPS then move on to a dedicated server management. Jumping straight into a dedicated server and then demanding multiple OS reinstalls all for free (one or two is fine but annoying) is kinda like demanding they repackage your sandwich several times while you're unpacking the sandwich right in front of their eyes.

    That's a horrible analogy.

    @casper253 I'd get a managed service if I wasn't able to handle things myself, I've did that with semi managed VPS when I first run a VPS, it saved my time and helped me get through things at that stage and get my stuff online. Then I've learned myself and I wasn't in a hurry. That, or as advised by HalfEatenPie you can have a VPS like KVM instead to test on.

  • @qps, should ask what folks are using the server for prior to ordering.

    VPS as an option and highly scrutinize/reject orders based on that unless they go through waiver with the fees and info for their needs. (KVM, hands on, upgrades, etc.).

    Barrier @ $49 is nil for summer hosts, holiday hosts, etc. His network will then be a magnet for dumb clown sellers who can't tie their shoes let alone operate a hosting company.

    Buddy must have really pissed them off, because I've asked several questions through support and have received professional and courteous responses even if they don't know / don't support what you're asking.
