*Discount available if you order for three or six months. A bit more to say on this read my second post.
Simple and straightforward: order, pay and wait. It took a little longer than I expected at nearly a day but I think the poor guy just forgot. I got the seed1 package. IdolEyes787 is the longest at three days and some have had theirs in under an hour.
They take paypal and no pissing about like OVH themselves do. This is a major plus to me as I dont really want to give OVH my passport and driver's license details just to get a seedbox.
Its ready to go. This box runs uTorrent webgui. Copy your login IP into your browser and when the username/password box pops up then you are ready to go.
It takes one second for you to recognise uTorrent webgui and another to get it working. Download the .torrent metafile to your computer, and then click the blue plus sign on the web page, browse to the .torrent metafile and click add. Even this paragraph makes it sound too complex, it is really easy to do.
I ran with my standard tests of S*T for download and cheggit for upload. Using one torrent for each test I was able to achieve sustained 8,000kB/s, with some slight variation on both. For S*T it was a freeleech torrent with over 10 seeds and at one stage was uploading at 2,000kB/s but downloading at 34,000kB/sec.
Some additions now that I get the hang of this specific box.
Running multiple torrents at the same time I was able to get 10,000kB both up and down for sustained periods. Not at the same time though. Best I could do at the same time is limiting the download speed to around 3,000kB and getting almost 11,000kB upload.
Running one torrent, such as a ScT freeleech pack, you can get 11,200kb up and down with slight fluctuations if you are on it quick enough.
day 1 Easily making 11,200kB up and down.
Day 7 Same as day 1.
Day 14 Same as day 1.
Day 1 testing on cheggit mainly got 450gb, ScT 30gb, others about 50gb .
Day 5 reached the 2000gb mark.
Day 15 reached 6000gb mark, right now its at 6583gb. (and yes I forgot to do this)
So far this has been a dream to use. If you read my other review then this is like the opposite: great speeds, no problems, no crashes, and did I say great speeds?
You do pay about £35/46euros/$70 (before discount) which is a bit much for some people but, if you are like me and dont want to piss about with setting it up or giving OVH your private details or you dont live in an OVH country, then this box is for you.
I forgot to mention that vnc and ftp are pre-setup as well. I have not tried FTP yet, but I have tried the vnc and it works flawlessly. edit: I have now tried FTP and it works.
Two things I would have like to have seen pre-installed: an IRC client (or irssi) for use with ScT and other sites of course, and some sort of winrar equivalent (useful!). I dont know enough about linux to risk it just now, but I will do it on the last day.
Here are three pic's of it in action on day 1.
