"TOO SLOW !! sync speeds are around 1 kbit/sec"

November 16, 2011  |  By jtedescokmc

 |  Version: Dropbox 1.1.35

Pros

Lovely transparency and no foulups so far with missing files in deeply nested folders.

Cons

Why so slow??
Downloads are from 0.1 to 3 kilobits/second on a 100 megabit/second ethernet connection to a Win 7 computer with an i3 intel cpu and 2 GBytes of ram.. I have 9 gigabytes of data being synced. Takes FOREVER.

Summary

Please solve this issue or you will lose all your long-term customers.

"dropbox or 4shared Sync ?"

June 23, 2011  |  By YegorOstapenko

 |  Version: Dropbox 1.1.35

Pros

Great for sending large files to friends and business contacts

Cons

Only get 2GB of storage for free. Pricing after this limit is rather high.

Summary

Dropbox was my favourite software before 4shared Sync was released. 4shared Sync is more cheaper. Also, 4shared Sync provides 15 Gb free space

"dropbox is cool but 4shared is better:)"

June 21, 2011  |  By stevemcnamar

 |  Version: Dropbox 1.1.35

Pros

Dropbox is a handy tool to keep your files in safe but 4shared sync is better and faster. Also , i want to admit winning-design of 4shared sync

Cons

Furthermore, i've read today on techcrunch http://techcrunch.com/2011/06/20/dropbox-security-bug-made-passwords-optional-for-four-hours/ that dropbox have a critic bugs, so i choose 4shared sync

"It feels very natural. No hassle."

June 15, 2011  |  By gezelliggg

 |  Version: Dropbox 1.1.35

Pros

Dropbox requires no extra thought from you. It's just there. This is what Apple's Mobile Me should always have been like.

Bonus: If you want an extra 250 MB of space, use this link to set it up: http://*****/wzaY4wE

Cons

None. It's perfect.

Summary

If anyone wants to use Dropbox; it's free and easy.

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

June 14, 2011  |  By nicholasaishk

 |  Version: Dropbox 1.1.35

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.

"Works in the background, but there for you when needed."

June 08, 2011  |  By shimshonib

 |  Version: Dropbox 1.1.35

Pros

A great product. I have recommended to a friend who's working on starting a new business for the past 6 months. A week after she installed Dropbox, her laptop was stolen. With Dropbox, all her work is saved.

Cons

none, for me.
