Overall Satisfaction with MediaFire

With my business VGSoundtrackGuy Music, I hire musicians to help me with various projects. And most of the time, the files I send them are over 1GB. So I first started to use Mediafire to do this. Creating a free account was simple and so was uploading. This is great as using regular Gmail or Yahoo mail isn't as secure.
  • 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.
  • When we've had our BETA testing programs for our products, we initially at the start of our business used Mediafire to send our BETA version of our products. But now we don't use it as it isn't 100% secure. Mediafire is best suited for completely public files.
The listed alternative is very good but we prefer Mediafire as we feel it's much more of a simple website to use.
The ease of uploading small files quickly with Mediafire is nice. We actually still have small files we have linked to in our YouTube videos for public use and download and it's nice to have this without having to pay.
