    "It's fantastic. What else is there to say?"

    June 14, 2011  |   By nicholasaishk

    Pros

    Reasonable 2GB FREE storage
    Optional subscription service for more storage
    Easy to use

    Cons

    Syncing time could be improved
    'Drag and drop' removes files from one folder and adds to another, better if it only duplicates the folders

    Summary

    I have at least four devices that I own that I must keep important files in sync. I traditional used a combination of USB drives and emails to attempt to keep everything in sync, this process was slow and repetitive.

    When I heard of Dropbox, it was a dream come true! Everything in sync with one click, just fantastic. A job that originally took 10 minutes to do now takes just a few seconds!

    If 2GB is not enough for you and you do not want to pay a subscription fee for more storage, you can always invite other friends to join from the program. For every friend that joins Dropbox from your invite, you and them receive 250MB each (up to a limit of 8GB).

    For users who want to sync a large number of photos or videos, 2GB will probably be not a sufficient amount. For typical users, the space is reasonable. I hope Dropbox will offer more free storage in the near future.

    I highly recommend this software to users with multiple devices which need to be kept sync.
