    FYI, Box.net imposes a per file size limit of 100MB. But, free is free.

    Wow. OK, so a file limit is imposed, but this is epic! Thanks for the tip! :)

    What is everybody using this for? Given the file limit.. I already have 4.5gb in Dropbox so most of my file-syncing needs are taken care of there. Either way, lets hear it!

    Having 50 GB of space from box.net is nice. I didn’t even have to own an ipad or ipone to sign up. I used one of the office ipads, installed the box.net app, signed up, and now can access the files on my box.net account on my android phone. I also use dropbox and wuala. They are all awesome, but I would like a bigger file upload allotment.

    The file size limit and lack of a free sync tool is a real downside, but hey — 50GB of file space to chuck things online when you need to. Dropbox will be host to the files I use/need the most, but this can be a handy extra space.

    The free package doesn’t sync with your other machines either. In order to get syncing to your desktop or laptop, you need to pay a monthly fee. I’d rather pay the same fee to Dropbox.
