I tested their $10 seedbox, which is the cheapest seedbox dediseedbox have available. For $10 you get 750GB storage, server on a 10mbps line and unlimited traffic.
Setup took minutes, as soon as I got my rutorrent url and logins I dove straight in and like an excited kid on christmas morning rushed out to test dediseedbox. I grabbed 50 torrents from a private tracker and fired them onto the seedbox.
I’ll share my experience on this dediseedbox review.
Fast speeds, consistent uncapped bandwidth
I was lucky enough to capture the highest upload and download speeds in one screenshot. The speeds were impressive.
Max download speed: 74.6 MB/s (although not typical)
Max upload speed: 27.9 MB/s (not typical)
Total data uploaded in a month: 17362GB (17.3TB)
You can see the daily upload totals represented by the bars on the screenshot above. I can’t stress this enough these traffic stats are the highest I’ve witnessed on a $10 seedbox.
The darker bars below them represent the downloads, you can see I uploaded fresh torrents every day.
I managed to hit these uploads by adding brand new torrents from a tracker homepage. More typical upload speeds were around half the speeds above, 15MB/s upload and 30MB/s download. In the beginning it’s easy to get blazing fast speeds on any seedbox, but as you build up the number of torrents, the speeds decrease because of the connection limits.
WebGUI rutorrent & CPU/RAM
WebGUI is great, everything seems to be responsive. I tested the capability by loading 50 torrents and starting all 50 at once. Although it worked well when the seedbox was fresh. After I built up 700+ torrents, adding 50 torrents and resuming all at once was too much for the seedbox to handle and it would crash.
It is perfectly suited for normal use, but be mindful of loading the box with too much resource intensive tasks.
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.
Plex, OpenVPN and 30 other apps!
Dediseedbox supports plex on all it’s plans (not restricted to expensive plans) and it worked well off my android phone. It transcoded fairly well, although not as fast as you’d experience from netflix or youtube.
OpenVPN worked well for me, although I prefer HTTP proxies over OpenVPN.
There are tonnes of other app available which are 1 click installs from the dediseedbox admin, to name a few: Sonarr, Autodl-rssi, Jackett, Emby, Radarr.
Bitcoin, Paypal or Card
As well as Paypal and Card, Dediseedbox accepts Bitcoin payments. If you are so inclined you can pay using Bitcoin and I don’t think they’re validating your name and address 😉
No uploading on public trackers (automatically managed)
Dediseedbox automatically pause all torrents belonging to public trackers as soon as they’re finished downloading 100%, this stops unwanted DMCA and C&D notices. Dediseedbox have been around over 10 years, since 2010. I guess disallowing public trackers is one reason why this is the case. They can stay in business and stay below the radar.
Dediseedbox won’t be ideal for those who are genuinely sharing GPL/copyright free material on public trackers.
