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.
