Looking for Reviews of Contabo, too good to be true?

is Contabo worth it or is it like the old saying, "you get what you pay for?" Does the cheap price come at the cost of poor performance and support? Is there any other provider that can provide those specs for the same price?
I'm referring to: https://contabo.com/en/

    As far as I know and I have Tried, Contabo is a Good Firm only in respect of Provising Servers. Their Support is not good at all and they will not help you in any regard and answer the questions like an FAQ.

    Contabo was and still is my first (and favorite) provider.
    That's where my email, website, and nextcloud instance are.
    I got the VPS S SSD, on a day of promotion when they waived the setup cost for a VPS.
    If it wasn't for that promotion I might've not bought a VPS from them.
    Currently, I'm very happy with them.
    (But somewhat looking to get dedicated cores)
    Their support is amazing, fast, and really helpful. I just needed to send them an email to get changed to an AMD node and get the disk speeds unlocked.
    They have telephone support, but I never needed to use it, as I didn't have any big issues like downtime or anything like this to solve.
    Their SLA (uptime) with me so far is 100%.
    My only complaint is that I only have a 200 Mbit port speed, but with the fact that the service is only 5 EUR p/m, I really can't complain.
    Overall I'm pretty happy with them, and would defenedly recommend them to someone.

    Here is the advertised specification:
    4 vCPU Cores
    8 GB RAM
    200 GB SSD
    200 Mbit/s Port (unmetered)

    Here are my YABS results:

    Thanks for that excellent review 😊

  • I'm of the thought that there has to be a catch somewhere. You know what they say - if the deal is too good to be true, it probably is
