    Dropbox is on top of the game!

    Sales Executive ( company, 11-50 employees)17th of November, 2014 06:11

    I have been using Dropbox both in personal and professional settings and can only recommend it. It's reliable, easy to navigate, easy to share and the price point also provides good value for what it offers.

    Easy to set up but limited administrative features

    Co-Founder ( company, 11-50 employees)12th of November, 2014 20:33

    What i really like is the simplicity of the service which is their biggest strength. It is easy-to-setup and the various clients for PC, Mac or mobile make it very easy to use across all my devices. Even on 3G network the sync works well. It is also possible to set individual dropbox clients to sync selectively, so that you don’t automatically copy every addition to a growing library of media onto the capacity-constrained devices

    Dropbox does it well!

    Director Bob20th of February, 2014 12:24

    I've used Hightail and Dropbox. Both work well but slightly different. The advantage to Dropbox for me is cost. It is considerably cheaper per gigabyte for sharing larger files. I use both their on-line interface and the desktop program. The desktop has an icon that indicates upload status. It took me a while to understand that sharing a folder with a colleague means that both of our computers need to be on and if something is deleted or moved on one computer it is deleted on the other. This may be true of all sharing services. My only complaint with Dropbox is that it seems a bit slow to upload. But, again, that may be true of all similar services.

    Difficult to imagine how life was before Dropbox

    Dropbox is just standard for every office and private cloud computing users. I think it offers all the features that you need to organize in a good way your files in the cloud.
