Mediafire, one of the great survivors

Pros and Cons

  • Speed and ease to upload and download files.
  • Available for iPhone, Android, OSX, Windows, and Web.
  • Has no limit of downloads.
  • Give you a considerably large size of space within your servers.
  • In free accounts you can only manage files of little megabytes (200), which could be improved since currently file sizes are higher.

Free File Sharing and Storage with Mediafire

Score 9 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • Fast Uploads. Uploading is quite fast and it doesn't take extremely long.
  • 10GB Overall File Storage Limit. With a Free Account, you can upload up to 10GB of files.
  • Account Never Expires. We let a full year pass where we never logged into Mediafire at one point. And our files were still there!
  • The 10GB Overall File Storage Limit. I really don't like this and I wish it were a 10GB limit per file. But I understand Mediafire wants to have some sort of limit with the Free accounts.

MediaFire - Helping you storing and sharing files - Helping you to get organized!

Pros and Cons

  • FileDrop feature. This is an amazing functionality that increases collaboration among our team. People can drop files in a specific folder related to a project and we can keep it organized.
  • Mobile Apps for Android and iOS. The apps works pretty well and you can carry your files everywhere.
  • Regular and Instant Uploads - MediaFire checks for the exact same file in the cloud. If it finds it, the upload will be instant. Otherwise, it proceeds with regular upload.
  • Multiple Upload Types - Basic, Flash and HTML5
  • Download Page - When you generate a link to download some files it redirects users to a specific page where they can download the file. The page is sometimes confusing and with a lot of ads which can be a little bit annoying.
  • Customization Option - you can find a customization section in "Settings", but there are just a few things that you can really customize. Maybe improving this would be nice to allow you personalize your environment (for companies, for instance).
  • Blocked options for the free version - There are a lot of interesting options that are available just for business and pro versions. If you could at least test it before upgrading your version it would help users decide.
  • Lack of PC sync client - Would be great if you could install a PC client that would synchronize your files.
  • Problems when refreshing your files list in the browser. Sometimes it gets slow and you have to refresh the entire page to continue.

Pros and Cons

  • It is dependable in my opinion.
  • Much more affordable compared to other services with similar capacities.
  • There is a certain level of trust I have with MediaFire for the fact that it has been around a long time since launching its web-hosting services years ago.
  • Some hiccups in the MediaFire folder sync between my computer and the web.
  • Have faced some down/uploading data rate fluctuations.
