    SeedBoxes.cc Review



    Summary:
    Name: SeedBoxes.cc (they are not affiliated with SeedBox.cc)
    Speed: 10/10
    Support: 10/10
    GUI: 10/10
    Speed of GUI: N/A (more info below)
    Package: 10Gbit/1Gbit
    Price: 24.95 Euro/month
    Overall rating: 10/10


    In Depth Review:
    Plans:
    SeedBoxes.cc offers two plan routes:


    • NEW, Metered monthly data-cap, which sits on very capable hardware:
      10/10Gbit link (not a type-o),
      Dual Intel Xeon E5630's (2 x 4 x 2.53GHz physical cores + 2 x 4 @ 2.53GHz HyperThreading),
      48GB RAM,
      3TB disks (non-RAID).
    • Unmetered (don't know its exact hardware specs).




    NEW, Metered



    Unmetered



    You can pay either month-by-month or up front. Those who subscribe to several months (up to a full 1 year) in advance would be treated to some nice bonuses, such as:


    • Up to 10% discount on the overall amount.
    • Up to 2 Additional Tera Bytes to your monthly transfer cap.



    Every SeedBox also comes with the following pre-installed:


    • All current major Linux torrent clients: Deluge, r/ruTorrent and Transmission,
    • irssi (you can then install autodl-irssi on top of it).



    Some more information regarding the metered-plans:


    • Once you've maxed out your monthly data-cap, you'll still be able to transfer content to your SeedBox at your current plan's max speed.
      However, content transferred from your SeedBox will be limited to 7-10Mbps.
    • From what I've been told by staff, plans are currently being made to introduce in the coming weeks a way for all metered-plan members to purchase additional monthly Tera Bytes of bandwidth, should they max out their monthly data-cap.
    • Hosted on OVH France.




    Speed:
    I'm currently leasing the Vampire Box.
    At 10Gbit/1Gbit, it all boils down to disk I/Os, and SeedBoxes.cc's new metered plans leave little room left to be desired.

    Simply put, the speeds you'll be getting, provided you and those sharing the specific physical disk with you


    • Aren't over-taxing your slice's hard-drive,
    • Managed to catch the swarm early,



    ...are amazing:



    Though my Torrent client of choice is Deluge (thin-client mode), I've also tried out ruTorrent with around 115 active torrents (out of which Roughly 25 were actually seeding) - and the interface was very responsive.


    Support
    :
    SeedBoxes.cc's support is currently ticket-system/Email only, and yet, the average ticket turn-around time during normal business hours (GMT +02:00) can usually be less than 10 minutes, and no more than 3 hours!

    Responses are always thorough, courteous and leave absolutely 0 guess work on your part!

    To top it all off, a new, slick support section covering many FAQs previously featured in their Wiki is also being finalized:



    Website:
    SeedBoxes.cc's Website has been put through a MAJOR overhaul during the past few days, and now includes a new Client Area which enables you to control all basic and intermediate aspects of your SeedBox:

    Definitely one of the most competitively priced services out there judging from the screenshots.... I think that this would be an excellent way for inexperienced seeders to affordably familiarize themselves with seed-boxes.

    I'm using this seedbox provider for a month and I'm really impressed by the performances.
    It was difficult to find a better plan. The only cons for me is the limited bandwidth (3Tb/month for the cheaper offer) because it disappears quickly with a 10gb link.
