Comparable to WetTransfer

Similar to WeTransfer as there is a free option which is great for small files.

Nothing. Easy to use and a market leader. Would recommend.

I was an early user of Box, but have moved on to G Suite

2018-05-09

Initially I was able to share and collaborate on files, but I found better tools and did not stick with using this software.

Pros

I have used Box in the past when working with various corporations on large marketing projects (video production and websites). It was very useful when it was one of the only vendors of its kind, particularly for file sharing purposes. Once you were set up it was easy to share files with other clients and keep each other in the loop. The customer support is good, particularly when you aren't using it. It does a good job of prompting when you are going to hit limits, or if you haven't used it in awhile and are looking at potential expiration.

Cons

It looks like a lot has changed and they have expanded their features over the last few years, but for simple file sharing, I would prefer a much faster, simpler method such as WeTransfer. If I am going to collaborate with a client, I would look at sharing files or a folder using Google Drive.

I've used Box intermittently over the last 3 or so years while working in advertising and tech.

2018-04-30

Pros

Box is great for massive file sharing. If I'm sending an exceptionally large file, I'll send it via Box vs. another platform. Box is known for supporting large files and they certainly deliver on that. What's also great about Box is it has unlimited cloud storage which is not the case for competitors like Dropbox. It has all the necessary privacy and collaboration features that other file sharing platforms have, too, so it may be one of the best if not the best option out there. The main issue is people aren't as familiar with it.

Cons

The biggest con about Box which isn't inherently an issue with the software is many people, in advertising agencies, I've worked in, at least aren't familiar with Box so aren't as open to receiving files from Box as they are receiving files from WeTransfer and Dropbox.

WeTransfer

2019-04-08

Pros

For a software that you might not use very frequently or for long periods of time, this checks off all of the necessary boxes and is very reliable.

Cons

While it gets the job done, the design leaves some to be desired. It would be great to more clearly see the message you're drafting. The link expiration can be a slight annoyance sometimes.

One of the best options for single large files

2019-03-10

We often use WeTransfer to send large project files to our clients, because of its' ease of use, and great upload/download speeds.

Pros

It's the easiest solution to email a file to colleagues/clients if you don't have an online storage account like Box, OneDrive, etc.

Cons

It's not really a direct competitor to file storages like Google Drive, Box, etc. - If you're looking to manage, store, and organize multiple files, you'll have to use a different platform
