All around great rootserver I would say. Great performance network wise within Europe, but seriously lacking when it comes to connecting to the States. For the price point, you're getting quite a bang for your buck if you're going to go for this if I say so myself.

SSD or HDD for the storage? I have checked out their page, and their server prices look great.
