Nexus Bytes LA Ryzen 3900X Pre-order Special

The very first offer to be reviewed for price-performance value in 2020 is the Nexus Bytes LA Ryzen 3900X pre-order special. Nexus Bytes should be familiar with all the readers of LowEndBoxes Review because our reference REBOX1 comes from them. The question is, do they have a better offer than REBOX1 in 2020? Their LA pre-order special looks to be one that exceeds expectations! Let’s look at the specs of the VPS-1G-Pre-Order-Special plan:

  • AMD Ryzen 3900X @ 3.8Ghz
  • 1 vCPU
  • 1GB RAM
  • 30GB disk storage
  • NVMe disk type
  • 1TB Monthly Bandwidth
  • 1 Gbps Port
  • $1.76 per month (annual payment with Switcher and Bencher special, otherwise $3/m)
  • KVM Virtualization
  • Location: Los Angeles, California

Nexus Bytes have done something very interesting of late to give greater value for their products. They have introduced the Switcher special, where if you currently own a VPS with other providers, you can “trade in” for up to four months worth of extra service credit. That means with an annual payment, you get 16 months instead of 12 months with the Switcher special.

In addition, if you post a benchmark of your new VPS on the LowEndSpirit Forum, Nexus Bytes will give you an additional month of service credit, making a total of 17 months for your first annual payment. Effectively, the monthly price stacking all these promos together works out to be $1.76. What a deal!

The results of the LEBRE scoring methodology (using the $1.76 per month amount) is as follows:

Well, it is clear that this LA pre-order special is more than a match for our 2019 REBOX1! Aside from the bandwidth (which is still decent), it effectively matches REBOX1 in terms of the value you are getting for the number of vCPUs and RAM, but you are getting almost double value in terms of the CPU Passmark, disk size, disk type and port speed! The overall LEBRE score of 141 clearly indicates that you are getting much more value per dollar than the previous excellent REBOX1 offer!

Of course, you might be thinking that this is a teeny-weeny little sparrow of a VPS and you need a bad-ass bald eagle instead. Nexus Bytes actually allows you to scale this smallest plan all the way up to 12 vCPUs, 12GB RAM, 360GB NVMe and 12TB monthly bandwidth for pre-order, and all the switcher and bencher perks apply. We just didn’t have time to calculate them all. The range of plans can be found here.

As with all Nexus Bytes plans, you get a free backup NAT storage VPS equivalent to your VPS storage size, free Blesta billing software and for annual payment, a free Windows server 2019 license.

TL;DR Basically REBOX1 rebooted with better value when trading in your current VPS plan, with the option of up-sizing or supersizing to suit your requirements.

HostDoc LA Black Friday 2019 Special

It seems like the HostDoc Black Friday 2019 Dallas Dual Compute offer that we featured earlier has been sold out! Fret not, the doctor still has some really potent Black Friday 2019 deals that have been quietly hidden away. The specs of this HostDoc LA Black Friday 2019 offer is as follows:

  • Intel Core i9-9900K @ 3.60GHz
  • 3 vCPU
  • 4GB RAM
  • 20GB + 70GB Disk
  • NVME + HDD Disk Type
  • 4TB Monthly Bandwidth
  • 10 Gbps Port
  • £4.17 per month (annual payment; otherwise £4.99 per month)
  • KVM Virtualization
  • Location: Los Angeles

The results of the LEBRE scoring methodology (using the lower £4.17 amount) is as follows:

This HostDoc Black Friday LA offer is a very well-rounded contender. Compared to REBOX1, it offers decent value in terms of CPU Passmark scores and disk type. It pretty much almost goes toe-to-toe with our REBOX1 in terms of number of vCPUs and bandwidth offered. As for the rest, it is ahead of our reference box by miles.

The RAM and the disk space outperformed our reference REBOX1, and once again its blazing 10 Gbps port speed is something our reference box cannot compare with, and we would like to remind you against that this port speed is a very rare offering for lowend boxes.

The overall LEBRE score of 165 suggests that this HostDoc LA Black Friday offer clearly out-gunned our reference REBOX1. It fell short by a bit, however, when measured against the HostDoc Black Friday 2019 Dallas Dual Compute offer that we shared earlier, but it didn’t fall short by too much. If you missed that offer, this one has slipped under the radar and offers you similar performance. Don’t let this one slip by too!

TL;DR A lowend box that is well-designed to handle loads comparable to lowend dedicated machines. A well-kept secret that you should grab before it’s gone too.

If you don’t want to have regrets of missing out on this HostDoc LA Black Friday 2019 offer, buy your box immediately and support HostDoc, who is on The Whitelist.
