SeedboxFarm were kind enough to let me take their Torrentflux Starter package for a spin for a few days recently.

The seedbox given to me has the following specs:

  • 100Mbit connection
  • 45Gb hard drive
  • Unlimited bandwidth
  • Up to 8 running torrents
  • Torrentflux interface
  • €7.50 per month

As usual I went onto my favourite private tracker and found some torrents which I thought would be appropriate to test the seedbox. I normally try to test the maximum download speed of the seedbox first by picking a few torrents with the highest seeder to leecher ratio. Then I’ll find some torrents with a good number of leechers and let the torrents seed for a while, occasionally checking to see the upload speed of the torrents. Finally I FTP onto the box to check how quickly I can download the torrents to my own PC.

With SeedboxFarm‘s Torrentflux Starter seedbox I got the following results:

Max torrent download speed: ~10Mb/s (the most you would get off a 100mbit connection)

Max torrent upload speed: ~2.5Mb/s

Max FTP download speed: ~1.7Mb/s (the max my connection goes to)

These are very good speeds for a seedbox. I had the seedbox for about 5 days and was able to upload 97.2Gb of data in that time. I downloaded about 20Gb during that time, so my ratio was about 5 and therefore very acceptable on a private tracker. Bearing in mind this was over the course of a mere five days, owning one of these for at least of month will be extremely helpful to your ratio.

SeedboxFarm also offer very reasonable VPS’s (which I hope to be testing soon) which even allow you to have Sabnzbd installed, allowing you to download from usenet using their large connection. Very cool.

    It depends on which tracker are you using, seeders/leechers. I was using the same package as yours, but my max torrent download speed was 14MB/s and max torrent upload speed was 10MB/s, I didn’t tested FTP speeds.
