Overall Satisfaction with Dropbox

We use Dropbox primarily to send files between us and clients, as well as a digital co-working space for projects. Often, I'm working with other designers on multiple projects that require multiple people working on them. Dropbox makes syncing and updating changes easy and allows us to work on the same files remotely, wherever we may be.

Pros

  • Sharing large files.
  • Easy syncing/uploading.
  • Commenting and adding notes.

Cons

  • Pricing.
  • Amount of storage.
  • Save time by digitally sharing files vs mailing or delivery.
  • Work with others remotely instead of meeting in person.
  • Create offsite backups of the most important files.
Out of all of the options I've tried to use for sharing files with clients, Dropbox has by far been the easiest and most reliable. Even though the big name companies have products I regularly use, Dropbox easily beats them in syncing with my Mac and making it easy to share.
I've never had to reach out to support for Dropbox, so I can't speak to its level of support. I've only ever had to access their online help a few times, and that has answered all of the questions I had. However, I give their support an 8, because previously contacting them wasn't as clear as I had wanted, so I turned to their online help.

Dropbox is fantastic for people who need to easily share large files with clients, friends, family, whoever. With the Dropbox app installed on my Mac, I'm able to share a file in just a couple of clicks. It's also simple on the receiving side; clients can easily access files sent to them, as well as comment and add notes. The only downside is the amount of storage you receive at free and lower tiers of their product.
