    "Great Product"

    October 25, 2013  |   By travonia

    Version: Dropbox 2.5.29

    Pros

    It just works without a hitch - can't do without it

    Cons

    Only 5 GB of free storage. Seems like they could increase this. Google Drive gives you 15GB

    "Great Idea... too expensive"

    October 19, 2013  |   By itasara

    Version: Dropbox 2.5.24

    Pros

    very convenient, great idea but.... (see below)

    Cons

    I started to use drop box... uploaded my photos, etc. til I ran out of room and then the expenses would occur if I wanted to increase my storage. Everyone wants money. Icloud wanted more money to put my pictures etc and storage from my phone and ipad... and I'll tell you what, I don't want to keep shelvling out money for this. Yes, dropbox and icloud are very convenient, but not if retirement is looming in the near future. I think dropbox is a great feature but I just can't keep dishing out more money. I'll just have to back everything up to an external drive which I only had to pay once for--not every omnth. Everyone it seems wants money.. cable is costly, my iphone is costly, and now storage too? Not worth is, so I'm hardly using drop box anymore.

    Summary

    Don't know what else to say. I said it above.

    "Simple working with, always available"

    October 5, 2013  |   By horsepower85

    Version: Dropbox 2.4.1

    Pros

    Easy working with as well Windows as iMac, MacAir etc.

    Cons

    No cons to my opinion, maybe the cost of more space if you compare with Google.

    "Product is Great"

    September 21, 2013  |   By cw3scott

    Version: Dropbox 2.3.30

    Pros

    It just works

    Cons

    You send out confusing updates. I recently got an email announcing v2.3.29 when I already have v2.2.30 installed. It would help if your release schedule were sequential.

    Summary

    I'm in. Great product

    No advertisements, profanity, or personal attacks were used as part of this review :)

    "Great software but, the website..."

    September 13, 2013  |   By hseobush

    Version: Dropbox 2.3.29

    Pros

    Works as advertised

    Cons

    Auto updates does not work (OS 10.6.8) and when I visited the website to do the update, it had the wrong revision. Sent an email and it was promptly answered with a link to get the latest version. They admitted to an issue with their website, not sure if it has been resolved.

    Summary

    Fix the auto updates and your main website, the it get 5 stars.

    "I like it BUT...."

    September 7, 2013  |   By itasara

    Version: Dropbox 2.3.22

    Pros

    Once I figured it out it was easy to store online and on my computer and sort of convenient.

    Cons

    Not everyone has one. Mine is full and I'm not going to pay what the storage price is for more storage. Too expensive and too many other obligations that require more of our money. I can store my pictures etc on external drives if need be. I don't trust the cloud all the time.

    Summary

    I would give it more starts because it is a pretty good idea but as I said I can't even use it now so it is not productive for me. Maybe if I delete some of my content, but I have to much other things to do right now and then I have to decide what I'm keeping what I'm discarding and what I'm moving to somewhere else. Too many decisions for me, too overwhelming. I want what is easy and convenient and not costing money.

    "Dropbox works, multiple dropbox folders on computer"

    August 4, 2013  |   By jjthomp

    Version: Dropbox 2.2.12

    Pros

    A great way to share files with friends or co-workers.

    Cons

    Would like to see the ability to sync several dropbox accounts without merging. I have a personal account for saving important files (medical, etc.) which I want to access from anyplace in the world. But then there is the church committee that I've been put on and I don't really want all their files mixed with my personal files. I end up going through the Browser to access this dropbox folder. No doubt some of this would not be an issue with a PAID subscription.

    Summary

    This is a great service, I wish it was available 40 years ago when I had my business. I am glad that it is available now and am still finding new reasons to use the many features.
