DropBox or Google Drive? Ran out of "free" space on both ... need to upgrade and more importantly consolidate.

No Cloud For Me!
I use Box.com and subscribed when they were giving away an extra 25GB with a subscription.
That makes a total of 50GB for free. At least for now.
It does everything I need.
I am on Dropbox, Box, Google Drive and Skydrive.
I just need one.
Giving them all a test run.
Seems like Skydrive has the best UI, tho.
i like to have my different ones google drive/box/minus/dropbox/ubuntu one...
post script: um... oh.. didn't realize i used five different ones..haha...
I pretty much have all the above mentioned plus sugarsync. With them you get 5 GB free but lots of ways to gain space, so I am up to 8.9 GB now for free. Plus the app will back-up videos and pics if you want. Want an account sign up here and we both get bonus storage:
Droid Razr Maxx HD
Link to some roms, gapps, safestrap, tools, etc
Paypal if you like my stuff: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/websc...=UKGNMVBT4XT68
OH OH! And if you want to sign up for a DropBox account, please use my link!!
The thing I like about DropBox is the seamless photo synch from phone to computer.
I take a pic on Dinc2. I turn on computer. BAM. Pic arrives.
It's super sweet.
They keep upping the free account limit too. Used to be 10. Then 12. Then 16. Now 18.
I also have Box (50GB) but once I started using the photo synch thing... Dropbox all the way.
I use Google Drive, mainly because I used Google Docs a lot and I am fully entrenched in the Google universe (loving it).
I have accounts with Box, Dropbox, Skydrive, etc...and they seem nice enough, but for me, since I use many of Google's services, it's easier and more convenient to use Drive...which I like quite a bit anyway.
I would imagine if you are a new die-hard Outlook user, then Skydrive might be a better option since they interact somewhat.
Box gives me the most space...but I don't need it and it doens't merge with a lot of other stuff I am using, like Drive does.
Honestly, I'd rather pay for extra space on Google Drive when the time comes where I need it. For $2.50 a month, I can get another 25gb that is shared across Drive and Picasa...which is a great deal for those who use both often, as I do. PLUS, if you buy a storage plan, your Gmail is automatically upgraded to 25gb of storage.
Also, with Google Drive:
So really, you get a LOT more storage space than the limits say if you convert your docs to Google Docs and let Picasa downsize your images to 2048x2048... infinite space really.
- Google Docs and files converted to Google Docs format don't take up storage space...and I convert everything I can anyway...so it will take me a while to use up my 5gb.
- On Picasa, files 2048x2048 or smaller don't count towards the 1gb limit. This limit applies to photos uploaded to Picasa Web Albums and photos uploaded at original size to Google+ from the Picasa 3.9 software...but by default, photos uploaded to Google+ get sized down to 2048 and don't count towards the limit. I have over 60 web albums that contain hundreds if not thousands of photos...and I am using 148mb of my 1gb limit.
