"on the other hand...."
Note: Review below refers to registered, but FREE upload hosting services! All host's mentioned also supply unregistered free & paid-for services.
Kudos to Sendspace for the file size limit, which at 1.5gb is three times the limit for Megaupload & many times bigger than the Rapidshare limit (100mb or 300mb, depending on which Google hit you read). The interface is simple & easy to use & the uploads proceed without a hitch. Once uploaded the file details & links are shown on a separate page & there is also the option of receiving an e-mail containing the link . but.......
......on the other hand.......
the time limit for retaining files hosted by Sendspace is a paltry 7 days. In common with Rapidshare & Megaupload, this only applies if the link is 'inactive' (i.e. has not had any downloads), but the limit for both the other hosts is 90 days.
Megaupload also sends me an e-mail if a file is due for deletion, Sendspace does not. I've no idea if Rapidshare does as I've only used them as a downloader.
So my recommendation for any free users - use Megaupload, unless your file is too big, in which case Sendspace is the better deal. Rapidshare is probably fine to upload too, but I know from bitter experience that it is a begger to dowload from, so your chums & colleagues may not be pleased when attempting to do so!
