Setup took just 10 minutes, I’ve had experiences with other seed boxes where it took over 24 hours to set up. In 30 days I uploaded over 1500GB (1.5TB) of torrents. The bandwidth and torrent limit is truly unlimited, which is good because you don’t have to seed based on which torrents have higher leech numbers. You can seed regardless.
Summary of Dedi Seedbox
Max download speed: 22MB/s (although not typical)
Max upload speed: 12.2MB/s (not typical)
Total data uploaded in a month: 1503GB (1.5TB)
I managed to hit these speeds after clearing all my torrents and adding brand new torrents from a tracker homepage. You’re not going to get these consistent speeds (more down to availability of leechers more than anthing), after seeders outnumber leechers the speed decreases. More typical upload speeds were 500kb/s upload, though downloads are always fast as long as there are plenty of seeders.
Here’s a screenshot of the traffic stats from rutorrent
Note: After 3-4 days of adding brand new torrents, upload speeds drop, probably because of low number of leechers.
WebGUI is great, they use rtorrent and was the first time I tried rtorrent, great features, possibly more than the utorrent on my computer. It has unpacking features as well as http download. Although there was one problem where I tried to unpack several zip files over 1.5GB and they would not unpack (gave error messages). I think it may be a server ram/cpu restriction which prevented it from being extracted. WebGUI crashed twice in a month.
This is an often overlooked part of seedboxes, and nothing is ever mentioned in the ad nor asked by subscribers, but it plays an important part in your torrent experience. Poor CPU and RAM can slow down the GUI, slow down hash check and unpacking of compressed files. Dedi Seedbox worked very fast with my torrents, I left the webGUI running for hours and it kept displaying without hiccups, hash check was pretty quick too.
