    "Pretty Sweet"

    January 5, 2010  |   By Halcy0n

    Version: RapidShare

    Pros

    The service is very reliable, the download rates are always maxing out you internet connection, unless you do not want them to. Also it has a massive database of files on its servers.

    Cons

    The service is fairly expensive and does not offer much in terms of features. The competition often offers true unlimited downloads, whereas rapidshare is limited.

    Summary

    At the end the rapidshare service is amazing, especially for file searching using google. The reliability is simply outstanding and rapidshare comes across as user friendly. For those who care about downloading, "relative high" amounts of data (<5 GB per day or <25 GB per 5 days) it is the service of choice. Those with greater needs will want megaupload or another competitor, however even they might find themselves putting down the extra bucks for both services. Getting both megaupload and rapidshare works well, especially since alot of data is stored on both, and when in fact it is unavailable from one source, it can always be excessed from another.

    "Very Bad Service Avoid."

    January 1, 2010  |   By glaxovont

    Version: RapidShare

    Pros

    The only good thing about rapidshare is the large amount of content. However this has begun to change since the service has deteriorated significantly.

    Cons

    The download limits are not clearly explained. RS tries to hide the fact that there are now some strict limits on how much you can download. You can download only 25GB per Week. Exceed this limit and you will have to wait a week.

    Summary

    You can download more using Megauploads free service than you can using a rapidshare premium account which is ridiculous. Also there is no customer service provided at all. Do not waste your time or money on rapidshare.

    "Completely useless"

    December 27, 2009  |   By adanedhel728

    Version: RapidShare

    Pros

    In theory, it should be great.

    Cons

    In reality, it's useless. There's not only bad service for their free users, there is NO service for their free users.

    Summary

    I haven't tried the pay service, but there's no chance I'll give them a dime after the way they treat their free users. They keep saying "there are no download slots available for free users right now," without exception. I cannot download anything at all from them. Their slogan is "easy filehosting," but there is nothing easy about it because it does not work.

    "Horrible! I HATE IT!"

    March 6, 2009  |   By NickKaplan

    Version: RapidShare

    Pros

    At least you can download from it.

    Cons

    There is no comparison for how super slow it is. Only allowed one download per day from your IP. You only get good service if you use the premium membership.

    Summary

    Bottom line: It sucks.

    "file pirates"

    March 1, 2009  |   By mikimass

    Version: RapidShare

    Pros

    They may have been civil once... They are not any more

    Cons

    Not the easiest uploader to use. Uploads can be painfully slow even when a premium user. The rapiduploader can just lose your upload with no recourse, than to start again.. Way too many "cons" to list here

    Summary

    I was a premium member. Within 8 days of my account expiring the account, and all uploads were deleted, not 14 days as they threaten. Furthermore I could not access my Collectors account, nor download any files from anybody else.. Instead I get a message saying "You are already downloading a file"...
    Stay away from this turkey ... You're better off just waiting and using the free service. They believe they are indispensible..
    Even if you email them... do not expect a useful / usable reply.. Big time cyber bullies ... Do not pay them anything

    "Simple,easy,quick to use,works first time everytime!"

    October 25, 2008  |   By jalowiec

    Version: RapidShare

    Pros

    Easy to use and quick even on my 62kbps upload and 968kbps download ISP!

    Cons

    Nothing to complain about as a premium user

    Summary

    For me Rapishare does what I expect it to do easily without the bells and whistles! The web pages are brief and to the point with easily recognisable links. The premiums are for me very reasonable for the web space allocated. When I needed help regarding the free RapidShare Programme Manager (RSM) the Support Team responded quickly within minutes followed by an email confirming the conversation (by Skype) with efficiecy, resolving my query-how many company Help Desks do that!As a satisfied user I recommend RapidShare without reservation. The quality of Support is the clincher for me-Quick response, friendlly and knowledgable making my call a pleasure!!
