    "Works very well for me"

    April 5, 2014  |   By 4Denise

    Version: Dropbox 2.6.27

    Pros

    Allows me to sync my school files between my computers with almost no work.

    Cons

    None that I have detected.

    Summary

    I am in school online. I usually work on my desktop computer, but I also have a laptop that I use. Instead of transferring the files by usb drive, I simply work within the dropbox folder. If I have a thunderstorm, for example, and need to unplug my computer equipment, the work will be waiting for me on my laptop. I can continue as before. Perfect!

    "No Windows Phone app, beware of 1 year upgrades."

    April 3, 2014  |   By JPA32

    Version: Dropbox 2.6.27

    Pros

    I have used Dropbox for several year. Works great and it kept over 100gb of files sync'd up across ipads, android phones and PCs.

    Cons

    No Windows Phone app. (I ended up using Microsoft SkyDrive instead, which offers more supported platforms.)

    When downgrading my DropBox account (didn't need all that storage anymore)I learned that they don't credit you for any unused months. (I can see bumping the charges to the monthly rate for months used.) This has turned my from a big fan to a very annoyed ex-customer.

    Summary

    Does what is it supposed to o on supported platforms. Be careful before signing up for annual service.

    "Syncing inconsistent, slow, delayed, unreliable"

    March 22, 2014  |   By CmoniqueNET

    Version: Dropbox 2.6.25

    Pros

    Does everything the other reviewers have praised, but... see the cons

    Cons

    If Dropbox won't sick. It is essentially useless especially for shared files/folders and working remotely from different locations. I have work to do and am stuck.

    No support that helps me. My impression is support is available for basic problems but nonexistent and unresponsive to immediate requests for help that are beyond the user's ability to troubleshoot. Isn't that when it is most important to have help?

    Summary

    No syncing or delayed, unreliable and inconsistent syncing and to make it worse, customer support is delayed and on the company's schedule as opposed to when the customer needs it.

    "Big Caution about Dropbox and other services."

    March 17, 2014  |   By bmaxx226

    Version: Dropbox 2.6.18

    Pros

    I was an early adapter to Dropbox. The system worked great and they kept increasing my free capacity so I started using the system for more things including long term storage of infrequently used items - pictures, music and all machines were aligned... I liked universal accessibility But there is a dark side.

    Cons

    I had a hard disk slowly fail and rather than "simply not seeing the drive", it somehow assumed those items had been deleted. On the free Dropbox those items are only recoverable for 30 days. Unfortunately I made the discovery too late and lost a substantial amount of material. Worse there was no notice on the other machines that entire folders had been emptied of contents.

    Summary

    Don't use Dropbox or any cloud storage system without have a real, stable back-up

    "Frustrating time consuming and impossible to manage"

    December 4, 2013  |   By wgobbels

    Version: Dropbox 2.4.7

    Pros

    Easy to download and install but that's where the issues just begin

    Cons

    impossible to synch, shared folders don't share, hard to manipulate files between folders

    Summary

    If you want to spend half a day getting no where by all means go ahead. Never have I had such a hard time. Even deleting my account has taken hours of emails and help forums and getting no where. Biggest waste of time I ever spent. Read other bugs and issues and you will see just how much trouble this is.

    "It's still dropbox"

    October 18, 2013  |   By jandsm5321

    Version: Dropbox 2.2.13

    Pros

    Great for syncing files between computers.
    Free!

    Cons

    Be wary of version conflicts, those happen if you change a file on one computer then change it on another before it has the chance to download the updated file from the first computer.
    Small space, but we only use a little bit of ours.
