Can anyone comment on the SSD performance? I heard they throttle the drives. I am interested in getting one of their SSD plans.

Issue with Contabo tends to be the average bandwidth policy, the SSD IO throttling only requires a ticket to be raised, CPU is fine, but as it's a shared resource VPS, noisy neighbours can impact on a per node basis though. It's Ok for a server that's just adding the ongoing stuff, but for the love of whatever imaginary friend you choose to believe in, do not let Trakt loose on it.

They do throttle the SSD drives. I have a the 14 euro plan out of the STL hosting facility. Once uncapped, speeds are frankly pretty good. Here is a bench.sh test I ran just now on it. No hardware acceleration for Plex, but it'll handle a handful of connected Plex users transcoding at once.
