    I've currently got a couple of high end dedicated servers with them and they are running great. They come with 1Gbps uplink and the default bandwidth is 10TB which is more then enough for me, but is upgradable. Server performance is AMAZING, we have up to 30 really demanding game servers running on one server and the CPU and RAM show no signs of even a tiny struggle. They provide a wide range of operating systems, and windows is CHEAP.

    If you ever get stuck support is always there, the longest I've had to wait for a ticket reply is 9 minutes.

    How the server performs isn't their doing, though.

    If it really *is* a dedicated server then you can thank Intel/AMD for that

    Be sure to report your post to the mods with an IP address/proof of ownership.

    I suppose, but equally it shows they don't use rubbish hardware and have a good network

    I'd report this post to the moderators and show them proof of having a service with them. ServerMania has had fake reviews on here before from users with no posts and new signups, so skepticism is to be expected when new ones appear in similar fashion.

    I have a couple E3 servers with ServerMania and I can agree with this review that their service is quite good, probably better than most I've dealt with. Quickest support ticket reply was about 30 seconds, longest maybe 8 minutes? Very good.

    I think a screenshot from PayPal or your bank with the transaction payment would be better proof... all things considered.

    I don't doubt that they're capable of maintaining happy clients, but since I know they've had at least one other thread removed due to a 'raving review' that turned out to be fake it's best to approach these with skepticism.

    That's fair enough. Everyone deserves a second change though?

    So you've been with them for one day, and already have raving reviews?

    My latest server was 1 day ago. If you refer back to that image, you will see there is another one on 30th September

    I've had plenty of servers and hosting accounts for 1-2 months and made reviews about them, what's so bad about that? I don't understand why so many hosts here rant about others getting good reviews, it's pathetic.

    Not what I'm pointing out

    The OP said 3 months but it's about 1 1/2 months. There's a difference between the two.

    Does it really matter? I don't go and check the exact dates when I post a review either. As long as it's not a "Day one review" I don't see the problem, one month or three months.

    It's because these folks have made fake reviews for themselves in the past. That's the difference. They need to be questioned.

    I've done the same thing. But you have to take into consideration that you have been here since 2011 and I have been here since 2006.

    Don't you think it's the slightest bit odd when somebody creates an account here, and their first day and their only post is to provide a raving review for some company?

    Certainly makes me scratch my head...especially when the host in question has been caught with fake reviews in the past.

    I provided you with information to back up the fact i have servers with them, why are you still arguing with people about it?

    I see a screenshot for one server... what about the other?

    It's just I don't trust reviews from new members who review companies with a history of fake ones.

    I do not believe people sign up on message forums to simply post a raving review without it being fake or somehow compensated or encouraged. Signing up, verifying email address, writing raving review... and then more than likely not posting elsewhere on the forum again.

    Pricing looks good is this with or without control panel?
    Failure is success if we learn from it.

    What kind of control panel? There is one on the website that stores all of your servers information, you can reboot the server from there and stuff. There's also an IPMI console where you can do ALL kinds of things like turning it on/off, rebooting it, see information such as fan speeds cpu temperature remote desktop - all kinds of things!

    Yeah i was talking about IPMI.Plus plesk control panel.But i think since he is using it for gaming server so most chances are that it is without control panel.

    Yeah IPMI is really good.

    Plesk 10 (10 Domains) is $20 extra per month, cpanel/WHM is $38

    @DomIsAmazing27, can you show proof of having two servers? You showed payment for one but not the other. Not sure if you saw my last post or not.
