Overall Satisfaction with Dropbox

I use Dropbox in just about every situation possible. It is the easiest way to create shared folders with clients and allow access on a per user basis. I'm very impressed at the rate at which Dropbox has improved its features and can't recall a time where Dropbox has failed to meet my expectations.
  • Dropbox syncs extremely well, files are never lost or fragmented.
  • Dropbox allows for group sharing, public sharing, and individual permissions.
  • Dropbox is supported for just about any device.
  • Dropbox is still one of the priciest cloud storage options out there. While it is slightly more reasonable than it used to be, it's high price tag has me sticking to the free version.
  • Dropbox has solved the "file is too big" problem that we faced for years.
  • Dropbox has allowed for us to send files quickly to customers who experience issues downloading our products.
  • Dropbox has greatly improved our organization's collaboration.
  • Google Drive,iCloud Drive
Dropbox is easily the best cloud storage product out there. It just works and seems to always work. Google Drive is buggy and it feels that way much of the time. iCloud Drive is still in infancy compared to Dropbox. Dropbox, although expensive, is the heavyweight in this arena and for good cause. It's feature-set isn't limited and is always with you on all devices.
I don't foresee a time when I will ever completely stop using Dropbox. I have recently switched to iCloud Drive for photo storage and use Google Drive for documents on occasion. But, overall Dropbox remains my most-used storage product.
Dropbox is well-suited for any business due to its ease of use and security. It replaces the "email as storage" problem and is ready to go when installed. I'm particularly impressed with how well Dropbox integrates with other applications to leverage a user's storage solutions.
