MEGA

MEGA is great for storing and syncing files across devices. It has a great web interface, as well as a sync tool for desktop and a mobile app that works very well on iPhone. (I have not used the Android version of the app.) I like the overall usability, as well as some of the features like the QR code and contact list functionality. I like the file versioning and file management features as well.What works less well for me is collaboration with other users, and file sharing among users. I have not been able to find a way to view all files shared with me from other users in the same view as my own files. In fact, when files are shared with me, the only way I have been able to locate them is through Notifications, which is sub-par. I would much prefer to see all shared folders alongside my files, without having to make a copy of the shared folder, thus losing the ability to sync with another user's changes, as well as using up my storage space.

OneDrive

If a coworker asked me what software to use, I would recommend OneDrive because of the company standardization and the integration into Microsoft Office. If someone who didn't already have a standardized software platform asked me then I would probably recommend looking at other options just because I have had hit-or-miss success with the reliability of syncing to the cloud. I use it to sync files between two laptops that I use but there have been a few times where I swapped laptops but the second laptop was missing a file that hadn't synced yet, even though plenty of time was available to sync. It's great for sending large files to people because you can specify their level of activity (download/view only or edit as well).

Pros

MEGA

  • Very fast upload and download rate.
  • Lots of space for little money. Even in the free version, they give you more space than other clouds (50GB)
  • It has an encryption system so your files cannot be published by third parties.
  • Has mobile apps for iOS, Android, and Windows phone

OneDrive

  • OneDrive does a great job of keeping file version history. I have had to use this feature many times and it is very simple to use. This one feature has saved my butt many times.
  • OneDrive synchronizes across devices very quickly. There have been many instances when I have added files online and, within seconds, saw the file show up on my local computer. This happens the other direction also. I am very impressed and satisfied with the speed of syncing in all directions.
  • The OneDrive app on my phone has been particularly helpful since it automatically syncs my photos (usually within seconds) and allows me access to all my files.

Cons

MEGA

  • API for external use
  • Query engine (join between metaclass)
  • Export tools
  • Web site generator

OneDrive

  • Sending Links - Though you can easily share links to files from the web experience, it isn't the same on the native experience. It would be nice if you could right click on a file to share its location with someone vs. opening the office application to share with others.
  • File Character Restrictions - This isn't just with OneDrive, but sometimes files will not upload due to an unsupported character in the file name.

Due to its tight integration into the Microsoft ecosystem and its bundling into the Office 365 service, continued use of the product is all but guaranteed. Unless there's a shift away from Microsoft, I can see no competing product offering the same ease of use and integrations taking the place of OneDrive

Clean, contemporary UI that is heavily polished and works great. You can tell they did a lot of user testing with this, and have a top notch UI design team that really cares about the customer. A highly user-friendly service across platforms and form factors, I found their web, desktop and mobile apps to all be impeccably designed and consistent.

I have given it this rating because it accomplishes the basic task that we use it for, storing and protecting our sensitive data. That being said, I hesitate to give it a completely positive rating, because I feel that the software performs at a bare minimum level, skimping out on some of the bells and whistles that would be nice.

It has a good performance, the pages load normally, access to the files, management, reports, everything is working well. With regard to integration with other systems, we have not done so yet.

While I have never contacted customer support, there is a large user community that has posted solutions on third party websites to a number of common questions like how to share files, and how to access files that have been shared with you. When I received a 40 GB shared file, I was not able to find how to access it until I searched on Google to find a solution, which was easy to find. The large user community helps with support tremendously.

Microsoft has worked hard to provide support as more work is done in the cloud. Within OneDrive you can easily get help and reach out for support if needed. Since OneDrive is commonly used you can also find resources on the web and even YouTube to solve any problems. It is so nice not having to buy a new version and simply have the latest updates pushed automatically via our Microsoft Office subscription.

Alternatives Considered

MEGA

From my experience both are very good, but they are also very different. MediaFire has managed to survive regardless of all the problems that it's had, but at some point it fell short, not in speed because it is really fast, but in the space that provides. That's where MEGA totally wins, since almost no one can compete with its free 50GB and the 200GB you get in the cheapest paid version.

OneDrive

As previously mentioned, Google Drive is better for real-time collaboration, but not as intuitive when it comes to staying organized within a folder structure. Permissions model is easy to use but fairly unsophisticated.Dropbox doesn't offer real-time collaboration at all (to my knowledge), and doesn't offer the same fine-grained permissions that OneDrive does. It is a decent document store and not much else.

Return on Investment

MEGA

  • Only positive impact in all departments
Marco Riva | TrustRadius Reviewer

OneDrive

  • Being bundled into our Office 365 accounts makes the service very inexpensive compared to alternative cloud providers.
  • Providing our users with a cloud storage solution has definitely benefited our mobile employees by allowing them to have the files they need accessible to them in the field.
  • We're able to control the external sharing of documents to a much greater degree with OneDrive.
