    I am looking to get a seedbox. I want a fairly cheap one with unlimited upload speeds. Also unlimited bandwith.

    I was looking at a site: http://torrent-core.co.uk/tf.htm which the cheapest option offers everything I want, but I can't order it because I get through to a page saying "No Stock Available".

    If anyone else has used this site or any site offering a similar offer, please let me know. Also if i want to get that seedbox from the site above, how should I do so e.g. check at beggining of month etc or is it simply a matter of getting lucky and clicking on the page just as someone has ended their deal with that company

    Why dont you just get an ovh seedbox, 100mbit connection, 250gb hdd space and unlimited.

    Only costs about 24 for the month.

    Nope, OVH is the best you will get for your money.

    Yes. OVH is the best one, but Vectoral is good too

    Could I ask which option you normally choose for each of them?

    RPS II for OVH?

    What about for vectoral?

    And also I intend to get the seedbox for a few months a year rather than constantly like some may. I have 4 accounts I intend to buffer when using the seednox. How much do you think it is possible to add on the the upload for each account in a month?

    Also I have heard about Torrent Flux seedboxes. Does anyone know the difference between a normal one and a torrent flux seedbox?

    ok - you are on a budget.

    Ignore the RPS - they are unstable for seeding - get yourself a KimiSufi [Reloaded] and you are laughing Kitbags.

    Now with OvH you can upload at 10MB/s 24/7/365 so how much do you think you can buffer?

    On a popular file with a big swarm you should be able to upload 250-350GB a day. [level 1-3 trackers like midnight torrents and revolution]

    On the same "popular file" on a higher end tracker you might be luckily to make 100% in the same day.

    Be helpful if you told us which sites you want to buffer - and tbh, you might wanna consider being an uploader as the original seed always gets the kudos and the gigs

    Ok. The Kimisufi looks good. Is there really likely to be a big difference between the cheapest and 2nd cheapest option?

    Well the accounts I will be buffering are not high level at all. I want to create a buffer of several hundred GB on each so that it will last me a long time. And when that buffer starts running low I will hire a seedbox again.

    The accounts I buffer will probably be: Bitsypder, Elbitz, STMusic, SCC and TheVault. I will hire the seedbox for 1 month and intend to create as big buffers on each of these as I can. How big buffers roughly will I be able to create on each of these in 1 month?

    As for the seedbox itself, what os do you reccommend and do I need any of the: full security, NFS RAID filer, Incremental Backup, Weekly backup options and do they cost?

    Thanks

    Linux and you do not need any of those options.

    First of all I am unfamiliar with Linux so would you still recommend it? Also the screenshot below shows there are quite a few linux os to choose from. Which on in particular would you recommend?
