    "Pretty useful software but needs more work."

    May 8, 2011  |   By leehsoon

    Version: Dropbox 1.1.31

    Pros

    Very convenient software that's helping me to sync my files, especially on my multiple laptops.

    Cons

    The Android version still needs more work. Changes made on my Galaxy Tab are well uploaded onto the server. However, when amendments are done on my laptops, they don't show up in my Galaxy Tab no matter how many times I tried to sync.

    Summary

    Have written in to the support helpdesk but haven't heard anything back for weeks. Losing confidence in their support attitude.

    "Brilliant and easy to use"

    May 6, 2011  |   By Rawrimamonster

    Version: Dropbox 1.1.31

    Pros

    Simple interface and usage
    non invasive, low memory consumption

    Cons

    Puts itself on start up (as usual) which is useful but can be annoying if you take it off and then forget to put it back on (simply opening it again manually puts it back though)

    Summary

    Really useful for syncing files between computers that you use frequently, I've been using it since a pre v0.7 beta, and have loved it.

    "Excellent and simple"

    April 25, 2011  |   By alickhk

    Version: Dropbox 1.1.27

    Pros

    I use it primarily as a backup / access for 1Password. It is very easy to use and seems to work effortlessly in the background.

    Cons

    Still looking but would have liked more than 2GB of storage - spreading the word though as you get 250MB for each person who signs on (up to 3GB).

    Summary

    Excellent for backing up key files.

    "Excellent cross-platform support"

    April 20, 2011  |   By bpb21

    Version: Dropbox 1.1.24

    Pros

    Synchronizes on Windows, Linux, and Android platforms. Also accessible on the web. I've never had it be unavailable or botch a download. Refer new users and get additional free storage space! Can't be beat.

    Cons

    None that I have found. Obviously if your internet connection goes out ... well, your files are still locally accessible if you've installed the software. I don't see many practical cons for this service.

    Summary

    Solid, cross-platform, free, upgradable, sharable, effective file storage, sync, and backup. It doesn't get much better than this!

    "Great in a pinch! Easy, quick and efficient to use."

    April 13, 2011  |   By waydal0130

    Version: Dropbox 1.0.28

    Pros

    Takes little to no time to access the webpage even on a somewhat slow connection. I do not have to wait centuries for my data to be pulled up, it's almost there instantly! Great for in a pinch virus removal. Had all my files.

    Cons

    Trying to add more than three or more decent sized documents at the same time could take a bit of time to sync with the servers.

    Summary

    This product has helped me quite a bit so far and I recommend it to anyone interested in being able to access their files ANYWHERE across the net. Whether you are on a laptop or phone. It's fantastic. End of story.
