Overall Satisfaction with Dropbox

Our editorial/magazine department uses Dropbox to share files, photos, videos and design pages. I use it to work with our multimedia, video and designers to share larger files, as well as to access files from desktop to use on my phone. I use both the web and mobile app versions.
  • Making storage accessible on desktop and mobile
  • Finding files through search
  • Syncing files from your desktop adds unwanted files
  • Pro price can be cost prohibitive
  • So much easier to use than storing all files on computers/email
  • Allows more cross-team collaboration
I also use OneDrive and Google Drive, but Dropbox has the best interface and file preview systems in my opinion.
I have not had the need to use Dropbox support, other than when I accidentally synced my entire computer files to Dropbox. That was corrected and things were fine after that.

Did implementation of Dropbox go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Dropbox again?

Yes

For me, Dropbox is especially helpful when using a larger file (particularly video) across mobile devices. It allows me to access and share a video file that I can then upload to multiple places such as Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. The file system and search also makes it helpful to categorize and find what you're looking for. It's of course less helpful if you're not sharing large file sizes.
