I picked this one up a couple daze ago, just now getting around to seeing what's up.

So far so good - thought I'd give a shout out to @key900 to say: :scream: Well played sir! Well played indeed.

Will post more notes as I gently probulate and configure over the next month or so (and this one will not be idling after that break-in period - it's going to be put to work)

heads up @cybertech - this one's clocking in at well over 9000! https://browser.geekbench.com/v4/cpu/15201231

Single-Core score    Multi-Core score
3021                 10717

first glance at the NVMe: 1 GB/s sustained write speed

I have not yet configured the block storage

nor have I checked the network (though my other letboxen have been consistently pretty zippy on the 1 Gbit/s ports)

base model (with 1 Gbit/s port and 256 GB instead of 2 TB block storage) may still be available for $5.51 monthly ($15 quarterly / $50 yearly!) https://my.letbox.com/cart.php?a=add&pid=115

I souped mine up with 2 TB block storage and 2 Gbit/s because yolo (I got plans for this one) - fully loaded, it comes out to $12.51 per month

  • I opted for Wishosting's 1.8TB box over the Letboxes since I cared more about the storage space & price than performance+storage+price but damn that looks like a killer deal.

    Cheap dedis are my drug, and I'm too far gone to turn back.

    It may be a great offer but I am not buying it. Literally, not as an expression....

    Thanks for the feedback :-)

    P.s base offer out of stock

  • @CamoYoshi indeed it is a deal aficionado's delight, and with the upgrades it ticks (most) all the boxes for my project - hence my rush to post a half-assed first draft of a review to let people here know.

    @key900 has been doing this for a while - and has powered through some treacherous territory at Psychz LA (power outages etc bs) to come out the other side with A+B power and very nice storage offers. Now I'm getting a taste of the ram and CPU options too, plus the 2 Gbit/s port.

    tl;dr: thanks @key900 for helping me get over @HostDoc withdrawals - you deserve some LESbian appreciation :)

  • Isn't it 2690v2? I'm eyeing N4 but have an existing with them due to expire in a few months :tongue:

    Mostly lurking for now.

    @cybertech thanks! you are correct, CPU is E5-2690 v2 (I was looking at my new freerangecloud jumphost which has the X5670, oopsies!)

    How the hell is this even possible? Power alone would run me more.

    maybe Psychz owes @key900 a favor or two ...?

    EDIT:

    @vyas said: base offer out of stock

    aha - and, limited stock ...

    well I got mine (and you know the rest, Jack!) :smiley:

  • @key900 has been bringing some great storage deals.

    I scooped some time ago a 2cpu / 2GB / 20GB NVMe + 3TB block storage / 5TB @ 1Gbps for $7/m.

    LetBox and HostHatch are my go to providers for storage offers. It's hard to find better offers.

    Talk about a quiet re entry into orbit @key900

    Thanked by (1)uptime
  • Got this as well a couple of days ago... thought it was out of stock since the offer was over a week ago already. I Let go of my older 2 TB service since I don't need that much storage currently and need some firepower as well for some small projects testing [and maybe block storage upgrade in the future]. Good shit. :+1:

    Folo

    Fear if losing out.... works both ways

    Buy = fear of losing money (summerhost) / hair (bad provider) / sleep (frau gets upset, off to the couch)...

    No buy = fear of losing out on deal.

    Edit: YOLO : You only live once. So might as well buy, but ..

  • Fear Losing Out On Deal = FLOOD :cry:
