    It works, but one needs to test it extensively before abandoning another system.

    looks interesting, but lack of a desktop client seems kinda iffy...

    There is no desktop ( computer) version for free user, like dropbox. but there is a MS Word add-on for save docs on box and also there is a screen shot save app.

    I installed the app today and uploaded photos from my phone then I logged on with my computer and uploaded photos from my PC. This will work great for saving my docs and photos but you will not be bale to store videos without an upgrade

    there was i had box sync. you can also set up a working folder as a network drive and it will auto sync.
    example
    Mount box.net account in Windows Explorer

    network drive is not a desktop client. your files will still be unavailable if the cloud rains. unlike dropbox, where the files are there

    i understand there used to be a free client. i even understand there is one if you pay. and i further understand that if there is no free client there might as well not be one because i (like a damn lot of folks) won't pony up the cash. crap all over the place is too expensive for a service that gives you space but makes you pay for the client. i would rather it was the other way around. sure, dropbox doesn't give me 50gig but they do give me a client.

    look at it this way: if box folds, your boned. files gone. if dropbox folds, win! files are in client! not that i use my dropbox as much as i could.

    anyhoo, got no more to say on this subject so i'll be moseying on to the next thread...and thanks to the op for posting
