Pros: The inherent flexibility and security combine to provide the ideal platform for my most common use case - sharing market research data with internal team members. The Box access controls are a bonus, from my perspective. Note, I've previously used a variety of basic file sharing applications. Box is the 'approved' app at my current employer.

Cons: Like most new (to me) applications with extensive capabilities, the initial investment in time to learn the UI is required. I would have rated Box higher, if the UI were more intuitive.

Pros: I predominately use box's mobile client which allows me to sync travel documents and other key files to my mobile device for easy access on the go.

Cons: I don't have too many negatives as I can access a native client on most platforms I access. But parity Linux support would be amazing.

Pros: This app allowed me to view documents while I was traveling and away from my home office. So much better than having to have my briefcase stuffed with papers.

Cons: I honestly can't say what I liked least because there was nothing wrong with this app. No suggestions to offer because it's great!

Comments: Box is a great solution for businesses with multiple offices/field crews/etc. that require a cohesive cloud storage solution.

Pros: We use Box for a lot of field reporting and our technicians are always on the road. Box works seamlessly with our mobile devices, and syncing/fire sharing is a breeze!

Cons: File recovery isn't as seamless/simple as other cloud storage solutions. But this is a minor gripe as we can still recovery files should the need arise.

Pros: What i like most about Box is that it keeps our information safe, because only those people we want can make modifications. As you write the information is saved, so we do not run the risk of losing what has been written.

Cons: What I like least about Box is that it does not have as many functions in toolbars as Word or Power Point. On the other hand, to access to Drive Box, it is necessary to be connected to an internet network.

Cons: Too many email blasts, outsourced billing department are the most negative experience so far. The area most difficult to figure out without several training sessions is the details of the add users section.

Comments: One of the best cloud storage providers on the market, and typically less costly than Dropbox.

Pros: Box is one of the simplest cloud storage solutions on the market. It is easier to use than OneDrive and not as resource intensive as Dropbox.

Cons: It doesn't have as many features as Dropbox (file collaboration, for example) which can result in businesses looking for cloud storage to end up with Dropbox instead of Box

Pros: We switched to Box from an older competitor when we realized we could get truly unlimited storage for a lower price than we were paying for a mid-level option at another competitor. When I actually got in the weeds of working with it, I was blown away by how much more feature-rich it was too. First of all, the design and user-interface is really very simple and visually appealing. But Box really shines when you're doing a lot of collaborative work and file-sharing. The tagging and notes features are very well designed, and being able to easily see all past versions of any file is really helpful.

Cons: Setting up Box Sync to automatically sync certain files/folders from my laptop was a little clunky compared to the competitor we had used, which just backed up pretty much EVERYTHING on both my cloud storage and hard drive. But the benefits of it working this way definitely override the clunkiness, and once you're past the initial setup decisions, it's just as easy but with less unnecessary junk on my hard drive.

Overall: More storage, saved money, AND improved ability to share files and work collaboratively with a remote team.

Pros: I love Box's sharing capabilities, the ease of searching through folders, and the security provided by the company.

Cons: I absolutely hate the layout of the Box website. The lists on it take me forever to sort through, and it is very annoying.

Overall: Box has saved me tons of time by being available anywhere, on any device. For a file sharing and cloud storage app, it can not be beat.

Pros: Professional look and feel, great mobile app with photo upload feature for smartphone camera captures. Good collaboration features. Nice preview of PDF files, images, etc. Good customer support: my storage space was not accurate, and they got right on it.

Cons: Nothing I can think of, really. I suppose it could have more storage for the free account, or a workflow integration; maybe it does and I haven't discovered it yet.

Overall: Professional look and feel, easy management of files from work to home, mobile camera upload features, a nice little tool.

Pros: The app and the webpage are extremely user friendly. We started using this software when a foreign lawyer took a case for us and she shared a link from Box so we could all see the documentation of the case, upload the remaining documents and keep an updated check list of all that we needed.
I fell in love with Box, I used to use Drop Box and decided to migrate all my documents to Box, it is much more user friendly, it is very efficient and quick uploading and downloading documents, and Iove that it allows you to continue to use the site while uploading documents, so you don't have to sit there and whatch the blue bar fill while doing nothing.

Cons: I honestly have no bad comments, its a great app!! The storage amount is great and the app even comes with a feature that warns you before downloading documents if you are not on wifi. I just love it!

Overall: Great tool for sharing documents! 100% recommended!

Pros: Box allows easy collaboration between large teams. It is especially helpful if you have members that aren't local/intranet as it does support this without an issue vs. other similar tools.
The dashboard to see what projects I have access to is intuitive to navigate.
File management is also well-designed. Desktop folder sync comes in handy, but using the web interface is also as simple as drag and drop.

Cons: The only issue I have is sometimes seemingly random notifications about files/folders being deleted that I've never used. There is most likely a setting I have to change in personalization.

Pros: It's fairly easy to use. I can set up a Box folder on my desktop and use it like a regular computer folder. It's accessible from every device I own and I can store a lot on it. Not as bulky as Dropbox.

Cons: I've found it to be buggy at times. I have saved things in Box that have disappeared and I cannot find them to recover them. It doesn't happen often, but it is definitely inconvenient when it does.

Pros: Box makes it super easy for a lot of people to collaborate on a document, share files, and get work done.

Cons: The learning curve is steeper for me than with other cloud apps I've used. Even simple things like logging in or finding the files I want can be tough when I've got access to a variety of folders from people at different companies. I think it's easy once you get to know it, but I'm still struggling with figuring that out. And I'm normally pretty decent at learning new software.

Pros: I started using the free plans at the office... And fell in love with it (although I already used it before). But when I ran out of space, I didnt had to think twice to buy the business plan. I believe its way cheaper and more secure than buying a nice external hard drive. Not to mention you´ll get the desktop sync app, between 2GB and 5GB file upload (max size), some great admin tools and many features more!!

Cons: Honestly... its hard to think of a con!... But in comparison to other similar platforms, I believe they could have more features.

Pros: There is a free version to trial the product so you can experience it before committing to a paid version. Unlike some cloud storage systems I've used, you can upload a folder and it will import all of the folders and files within that folder. You can use this system to share materials with others as well.

Cons: I have found the sync function of this product a little difficult to use. It's unclear if updated files on my computer are actually also going to the cloud and I will sometimes need to re-upload things.

Overall: Cloud storage at a reasonable cost.

Comments: Box is one of many cloud storage solutions I use for my personal and business needs simply because it works. I use it to share data with clients and collaborate. The desk top sync feature is straight forward and easy to set up.

Pros: Box provides a file storage solution for personal and business needs. From basic subscriptions and features through enterprise use, Box has it all. The subscription/account level determines the features and capacities. From free personal accounts with 10GB storage capacities to unlimited business storage. Upload limits, number of users, and features are all determined by the flexible subscription/account levels you choose. Box offers desktop sync capabilities and mobile access. It offers encryption, regulatory compliances, and so much more. What makes Box different is that besides personal and business accounts, Box offers platform plans as well as an extended list of add-ons and integrations. Box allows for messaging and collaboration as well.

Pros: Box gets the job done. It is becoming more and more entagrated into other websites I use to upload files.

Cons: Some of the things I don't like about Box is the way it is set up and the way you find files. It's probably because I use other sharing platforms more then Box

I use Box to store personal and work file and folder. I usually share some of these file.

Pros: It's a very good tool for store and share file and folders within your organization or personal life. I use this tool prevalent for work in order to improve the sharing experience and boost team work.

Overall: In my opinion the main limitation of this software is related to the cost of the licences. In fact, either you are a business or single user, you need to buy at least one licence in order to get the correct space to work and operate.

Comments: I'm a fan! So the pros outweigh the cons, and Box seems to always be active working toward improving their product. I've implemented Box Business/Enterprise for three companies, and users definitely benefited from the collaborative system, even when using only the base features.

Pros: The Box platform works, and does what it says it will do. Live online training is especially helpful for bringing on new users, and there are numerous pre-recorded tutorials and white papers. No excuses for users to not understand how the platform works. System is flexible for businesses needing to meet international security, medical compliance, etc.

Cons: Navigating all admin options can be a little daunting. The default settings are probably 'right' for Enterprise users, but for a small business I had to invest a little time with tech support to get the settings right so that my users couldn't make changes that affected the monthly cost. The Box business (from their sales, support, features) are strongly designed for large customers, not for a freelancer working with clients (examples: minimum 3 users, automated 'Relay' workflows Enterprise only.)

Pros: Works for what you need, lots of features. User friendly, keeps files secure and easy to share and collaborate, like infinite storage.

Cons: Don't like the user interface as much as other competitors, preview mode sometimes didn't work for me.

Pros: Box has a nice set of features specially designed for teams, with file sharing, sync, versioning ... I personally used it to store files only.

Cons: It isn't a real con because Box is good for small teams, and if you are a lone developer then it isn't a right choice as there are a lot of cheaper alternatives with similar features.

Comments: There are SO MANY solutions that are similar to it out there and I can't just pick one that I can make all my clients use it. Box works great and I'm very happy with it and its place in my workflow, given the reality of the fractured-but-syncing world of cloud-based computing.

Pros: I love the drive mapper. Like Dropbox, Google Drive, ShareFile, and other cloud storage tools, Box has a drive mapper that allows you to access your Box files through your desktop. It makes it easy to find things, move files around, and open/edit shared Word and Excel documents without downloading and re-uploading new versions. I work as a bookkeeper, and all of my clients have their own special way of storing files and documents that I need to access. That means I have to use basically every cloud-based file storage system on the market. I love Box because it fits into my existing client workflow without creating the hassle of logging into yet another system to find the files I need - I can access everything right from my desktop securely and quickly, and clients have an easy way of getting me info I need without attaching documents to emails, which is how things get lost (and not a secure way to share financial documentation). Best of all, Box can sync with Hubdoc, my favorite cloud-based document collection and management portal, and also the most critical piece of my cloud-based workflow. That means anything I collect through Hubdoc (bank statements, bills, receipts, payroll reports, etc.) can be sent to Box where my clients will have access to it as needed - meaning less time spent on administrative tasks for them AND me.

Pros: The ability to share files via the cloud is awesome. We love being able to share files with only certain people.

Cons: You apparently can't have more than one "master" admin. The owner of the company needs to be able to hand it off to me sometimes and cannot. He wants to continue to be the master admin but that requires me logging into his account to add new users or share certain folders, since even as an admin, in a folder I have access to, some folders have it locked so I cannot share. It's maddening.

Pros: Using BOX is so extremely easy daily with 2 different businesses. It's a great place to store files and let people inside and outside company access them. BOX will also sync with Outlook which is a great feature. Being able to access these files from anywhere is important. Box integrates with a variety of CRM's and allows easy "drag and drop" features.

Pros: Pretty simple solution for storing files and allowing for some collaboration. It's very simple and intuitive, so no learning curve. You can do everything fast and efficiently.

Cons: There are not a lot of bells and whistles. Not sure that a lot of features and additional capabilities are needed for something like this, but might be nice if it had some additional capabilities. Nothing specific comes to mind though, so this is minor.

Cons: What I like the least about using Box is that I have little free storage space and the cost of maintenance is high.

Overall: Content in the cloud!

Pros: I like that it allows my team to create as many folders as necessary. We're able to build an easy to use structure for housing all of our marketing collateral and content, which makes it easy to share with our sales team. It makes for great collaboration and alignment! It's also easy to control versions, which ensures our sales team has the latest and greatest content!

Cons: It's not as easy to make updates to content directly in Box, which requires my team to make updates and then re-add the updated content.
