I start using box since a branch from the Government has their files in Box, so we started communicating ans sharing users and links with them. We have most in owncloud and some in dropbox. Supremely the bandwidth for box in Argentina worked way better than dropbox. It has same functions as dropbox, at least what we uses looks the same.
For now on what we use we dont find any cons. We just installed clients, logged users and start sharing files, Bandwidth from argentina of Box seems to be way better than dropbox.

Besides being a "better DropBox", OwnCloud has the ability to use plugins. It has a MarketPlace where you can search for various types of plugins. Most of the plugins are free too.
OwnCloud is wonderful. It runs on your own server so the only limitations to the amount of storage space you have is the amount of disk space on your server. You can create public links with or without password protection, and you can schedule the link to automatically deactivate. You can have as many synchronized folders as you want (not just one like DropBox). You can share each of these folders with different people or groups, and you have full control over the type of access: read only, write only (drop box), or read/write. Best of all, OwnCloud is an open-source product and it's all absolutely free.
OwnCloud has an automatic update feature but I've had it fail more times than I've had it succeed. It's not all that hard to upgrade manually, but an automatic update would be much much nicer.
See how Box and ownCloud stack up against each other by comparing features, pricing, ratings and reviews, integrations, screenshots and security. Compare real user opinions on the pros and cons to make more informed decisions.
