I would recommend this solution but it depends on their use case. There could be another solution that fits their use case better. I rate Dropbox a seven out of ten.

I'm not an IT person, I'm a business person. I'm not overly technical. I'm a Dropbox end-user and customer. I'd rate the solution at an eight out of ten. I've been quite please with its capabilities so far. I would recommend the solution to other users and companies.

I use the product for personal use for the most part. As a cloud-based solution, I'm always using the latest version. It's automatically updated for the users. I'd rate the solution at a nine out of ten. For our purposes, we've been very happy with its overall capabilities. I would recommend the product to other users and companies.

This is a great solution, it's just too expensive. Microsoft has better deals with the Windows 365 suite and with a Visual Studio subscription you get additional space. You can bundle together several products from Microsoft. OneDrive is normally free and offers more or less the same features as Dropbox just not as nice. If it's just a matter of sharing something, I would recommend Dropbox. If there's a need for computer backup or photograph backup, then I would strongly recommend something else because the cost is prohibitive on Dropbox. I rate the solution a nine out of 10.

I think Dropbox is a good option for Windows users because it's easy to use in Windows and a user can access all other products and software. On a scale of one to ten, Dropbox is not a 10, but I'm not sure it's an eight or nine. For my personal usage, I would say a nine is good.

We are migrating to Microsoft Teams, so we will not be using Dropbox three months down the line. I would recommend this solution, but it also depends on what is your end goal. If there is a lot of collaboration within files, not at the folder level, Dropbox serves the purpose. If you need to collaborate on a project on a higher level, Microsoft Teams is a better option. It also lets you do a lot of project planning. I would rate Dropbox an eight out of ten.

The main difference between dropbox and other solutions that I have used is the synchronization in using local software to the account. You can work in the file in your local office and it will synchronize to the cloud. You are also always working with the latest version of the document. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

We use the cloud deployment model. I would recommend the solution. It's user-friendly, easy to activate and easy to use. I'd rate the solution nine out of ten. The features are great but the pricing needs adjustment.

I'd rate the solution eight out of ten. The solution is very similar to Box. If I have the file on my computer, it will sync automatically. I would very rarely, for instance, access it online if I'm on my laptop. It's only the mobility aspects of it that are not so simple or quick.

Everyone now is on the cloud using some cloud-based solution. Dropbox is not unique anymore, as there are several storage solutions available. Dropbox is easy to use, easy to share, and easy to store documents and files. This solution works fine and it has what I need. I am just a simple user. I am satisfied with this solution and I am not changing. I am using the desktop client and I can upload and move folders. If you need to share files, then Dropbox is a good solution. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
