Overall Satisfaction with MEGA

MEGA is one of the best cloud storage services that exist at the moment. I usually use it to store and share information and files with users of certain forums, as well as with my FB contacts. I like to use this option since I do not have to limit myself in the size of files that I upload and share, I just have find/create the file I want and simply upload it to share it with the world.

With respect to my work, I have also uses MEGA for that, especially when the created video files are very large to share via email. With MEGA, I can email a download link and also keep the file stored in my cloud if I want to share it again later, or if I accidentally delete it from my PC.
  • Very fast upload and download rate.
  • Lots of space for little money. Even in the free version, they give you more space than other clouds (50GB)
  • It has an encryption system so your files cannot be published by third parties.
  • Has mobile apps for iOS, Android, and Windows phone
  • Sometimes the download rate drops by a lot, so the downloads take much longer.
  • You can create backups without needing to occupy the cloud you share with other workers.
  • You can share large files quite quickly. Also, those who receive the link can access the file in just a few minutes.
From my experience both are very good, but they are also very different. MediaFire has managed to survive regardless of all the problems that it's had, but at some point it fell short, not in speed because it is really fast, but in the space that provides. That's where MEGA totally wins, since almost no one can compete with its free 50GB and the 200GB you get in the cheapest paid version.
If what you want is to share your files on the web, in forums or only among friends, MEGA is a great tool for you because you can upload, share and download large file at fast speeds. Now if what you want is not to share, but only to make a backup of your files, MEGA is equally good and functional, since it provides more than enough space (50GB) so you can store all your files and documents.
The only bad thing is the download and upload speeds are variable and are not always the best; on many occasions you will find that it is very slow, but luckily, from my experience this only lasts a few minutes and then it will return to being as fast as ever.
