    "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 8, 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.

    "Why Did It Take So Long To Think of This?!"

    June 3, 2011  |   By darothwell

    Version: Dropbox 1.1.35

    Pros

    Wonderfully easy way to share files (even large ones) between people and at long distances. iPhone app to access files from my phone.

    Cons

    I have shared folders with others, but I regularly run into confusion on how they should use them. Perhaps better instructions are needed.

    Summary

    Send photos and avoid your ISPs file size limit: reason enough to install DropBox. Great for collaboration, too. I keep a list of books I own in DropBox so when I am in a bookstore I can grab my phone, see my list and avoid buying a book I already own!
