Pros: Box is the same as dropbox or google drive. It provides the ability for online storage for files. It does what it says and there is no denying it.

Cons: It just never appealed to me, it differentiated itself with a focus towards sharing but in my opinion it became aware to me too late, after i had discovered dropbox, google drive, onedrive etc.

It works well, but is it worth the money?

Pros: I like the ease of use, and I really like the modern look. I appreciate that it can integrate with other platforms as well.

Cons: It does more than similar free services, but is it worth paying for? Pretty much everything I need to accomplish can be done with free Dropbox or Google Drive. There is no "free" mode for box.

Pros: The thing I like most about Box is that is much more than yet-another-cloud-based-file-storage service. It's been one of the first players in this space and it has iterated to offer a solid service, with great collaboration features and a strong focus on security.

Cons: The pricing curve for small businesses can be a little steep, but you really get great value for what you end up paying.

Pros: Good software to share files and work together on any file from anywhere of the world. You can access your file with any device. Never worry about security it has multi lever security two step authentications with mobile. Secure file sharing by simply create a link of that file. It can easily have integrated with o365 and google docs.

Cons: No, I don't have any idea about any cons of this software. I am waiting for BOXWORK 2018 in August 2018.

Pros: Using Box's enterprise offering allows integration with our local auth scheme, sharing with people both inside and outside the organization, and a setting non-uniform permission for access, with a notification scheme. No more wondering if so-and-so has bothered to download that archive file yet...! It allows any level (that I've attempted) of fine grained control.

Cons: Performance can be sluggish. Information on how the data is stored is sparse without digging (encrypted at rest? national location?). The control options/menus per item/folder stored are a bit confusing / non-intuitive if you only use the service occasionally.

Pros: Navigating Box is very intuitive. The software is the next evolution of file explorer. The ability to create Box Notes within folders is a convenient complement to place any information relevant for a file or set of files.

Cons: Being a cloud based storage network, it can be slower than local files, which is a bit of a drawback for users that are constantly pulling files from different parts of the network.

Box is integrated with thousands of app like Salesforce, Microsoft Word, Power-point, Slack etc. Box allows you to view 100+ types of files directly in its application. You can invite your team to collaborate and share files online.

Overall: We have integrated Box with Salesforce where we keep some static and large content and allow our software team to collaborate all over the world on the same platform. With Box files are sent securely and you can create folders to manage numerous files.

Pros: It is the one that has more space from the free plan to store all my files, this gives a good signal to move to premium plans. One of the key elements is the security provided by the server, to be able to trust and always have access to our files and be able to edit them directly.

Cons: One of the features that I miss in free plans is that I could see access statistics and download files that had public access. After the last update you can not see (just premiun), I hope you can consider reactivating this function

Overall: For us entrepreneurs is very important to have a space for storage in the cloud of all my files and important documents is, I can also access them from any device, the other key element is the option to edit collaboratively that generates higher productivity

Pros: They pretty much knocked it out of the park here. All the features of DropBox with better pricing scheme. Well worth the cost. I am currently using the free plat the moment as I transitioned a lot of my files to another service due to a large amount of data. However as I grow the other types of documents I am sure I will go back to paying again...

Cons: Not really anything I can say negative about it. Occasionally it take longer that it should to sync a file to one of the other computers in the office. It could take 2 or 3 minutes at times even though its showing up on the server and on the original computer. But other than that nothing bad to say.

Pros: I have used Box in the past when working with various corporations on large marketing projects (video production and websites). It was very useful when it was one of the only vendors of its kind, particularly for file sharing purposes. Once you were set up it was easy to share files with other clients and keep each other in the loop.
The customer support is good, particularly when you aren't using it. It does a good job of prompting when you are going to hit limits, or if you haven't used it in awhile and are looking at potential expiration.

Cons: One of my initial reactions to getting started with box is that it is kind of a pain to get it installed and up and running. It looks like a lot has changed and they have expanded their features over the last few years, but for simple file sharing, I would prefer a much faster, simpler method such as WeTransfer. If I am going to collaborate with a client, I would look at sharing files or a folder using Google Drive. The storage options are better, and you get access to way more tools for the price per user.

Overall: Initially I was able to share and collaborate on files, but I found better tools and did not stick with using this software.

Pros: As far as sync goes, Box is the greatest. With the only unlimited storage option currently available on the market, it's great if you need to store lots of files, large files, or both. The sync app runs in the background automatically, and works across OSes without complaint.

Cons: I understand that companies need to grow and not stagnate, but Box is trying to chase everyone else by becoming a full-service business application suite. It's great at sync. It's not great at much else. Stay in your lane.

Pros: Box has changed lives within our company. Don't get me wrong- transitioning to box was a process but it was so worth it! Everything is in one place and you can really control who has access to what. It is so much easier to share files and customize who can edit one. I love that I can share a file and customize each persons access to it (admin, editor, reviewer, etc.) You can set it up for people outside of your organization to view files or no one at all to be able to view your files. Files can be uploaded by just dragging to a webpage which saves so much time. You can access all your documents even away from work with the box.com website which is so helpful when I need to check something when I am away from the office.

Cons: There is a learning curve with this- it does take sometime to get used to. Box does require many updates and sometimes the updates aren't able to update and your computer crashes. We have been warned many times by our IT people not to update for months at a time or it will mess up our computer. I believe their are some bugs on that end.

Awesome program. Usually prefer box when working with different companies.

Pros: Great source of file sharing. Usually end up using this program over drive to co-op with various sub-trades in construction.

Cons: Smart to increase cost of program based on file size download/upload ability. Could increase the file sizes for each tier just a tad, just so that construction does not have to pay that extra price for such a minimal increase.

Pros: I love knowing that all of my files I share and store on Box are secure and can be reliably accessed from many different platforms. The unlimited storage version allows us to send large art files to our licensors with ease as well as leave comments on specific files. The ability to view multiple documents at once is very helpful! The interface as a whole is very organized and easy to navigate. You can favorite specific documents for quick viewing.

Cons: On occasion, the sync speed can be quite laggy and quit out. It sometimes takes a bit of time for the synced files to appear on all devices.

Pros: Just as simple as any other online file management system really. But it does integrate very easily with Office365 which is handy. There's a mobile and iPad app and both are good.

Pros: I'ved used Box, dropbox, OneDrive, and many other cloud based file storage systems for many years. Box is -- hands down -- the best application for three big reasons. The first is that Box has many built in features for SSO, management, archiving, search, and integrations that are very well suited to large scale enterprise implementations to replace client/server file systems. The second is that Box has amazing integrations (pre-built). Some of my favorites are email based notifications and submit (drop in) files via email. Not that I used them for email itself, but they are great to build automation with. The third is Box's API which is super easy to use.

Cons: The one thing I never liked about Box is that when a corp IT team includes someone to have read access (or other access) to a folder, it always shows up. Box should have user features that allow the user to hide content that is shared with with, but which they don't want or need to see. Clearly one of the huge problems of massive file collections is finding the right data. I think their search, sort, and filter technologies could really use a lot of help here.

Cons: Syncing sometimes takes a while or gets stuck on the desktop application. I find the web application works bests most of the time.

Pros: Box is an extremly good software to store files in the cloud, it also allows for online collaboration, sharing.
This is very good for team where all the files can be stored online so everyone in the team can acces, comment, edit and share in real time from any device.
It integrates nicely with lots of other software.
It comes with a note taking section that allows you to take note and share them or simply store them in a safe place.
The price is also cheaper than the cometition.

Cons: The only con is that not everyone knows of this yet.
Box is great, it has an amazing price that beats the competition.
If more people use it it will be easier to share files.

Overall: having a place in the cloud to store, share, collaborate and for a price that is cheaper than the cometition.

Pros: This is becoming more and more useful for storing content and sharing it, namely with external contacts not given access into our SharePoints. Interface is incredibly easy to understand, and it's overall great in terms of security and features.

Cons: I've only had one issue where I had added someone as being able to access a document, and they repeatedly were not able to get into the direct link I provided them. We waited a few days, tried again (without adjusting anything) and it worked. I'm assuming this was just a tiny bug that was addressed as I've had no other issues

Pros: I like the versatility for uploading and downloading files. Files can be uploaded by dragging them into the folder in a web browser. You can also allow them to be uploaded through email. When this is activated, a unique email address is created. Any attachments in emails sent to that address are uploaded to that folder. We use our reporting software to send reports to these folders. Within this folder, uniquely named documents can replace existing ones or be added in addition to the original.
Files can also be uploaded through synced folders. I use this to store all of my work documents. Any file in this folder is synced with the online folder.
The Box files can easily be accessed from any web browser or through the mobile app. Ours is placed behind our firewall. With the mobile app, you can also create offline versions of documents for easy access without internet access.
Downloading can be completed easily though the app or online. Individual files can be downloaded one at a time or en mass as a zip file.

Cons: I am pretty happy with this product. The only thing that I would prefer is the ability to download multiple files at once as separate files instead of being downloaded as a zip file.

Overall: With this product, I can securely save and store my documents. They can be accessed from anywhere. I can share them with colleagues and setup folders with access for multiple users.
Through our reporting software, I can easily email documents to Box folders to be uploaded.

Pros: I like that you don't have to pay as much for as much storage as you do for DropBox and you can add and remove collaborators just to folders rather than giving them access to everything which is advantageous.

Cons: It's clunky, it does not sync as well as DropBox does, it is harder to share information, and I think harder to have the information on your desktop than DropBox. Also if you don't add a folder in a certain way it is possible it will not end up going to all of your collaborators which while sometimes a good thing is often irritating and cumbersome.

Pros: Box is great for massive file sharing. If I'm sending an exceptionally large file, I'll send it via Box vs. another platform. Box is known for supporting large files and they certainly deliver on that. What's also great about Box is it has unlimited cloud storage which is not the case for competitors like Dropbox. It has all the necessary privacy and collaboration features that other file sharing platforms have, too, so it may be one of the best if not the best option out there. The main issue is people aren't as familiar with it.

Cons: The biggest con about Box which isn't inherently an issue with the software is many people, in advertising agencies, I've worked in, at least aren't familiar with Box so aren't as open to receiving files from Box as they are receiving files from WeTransfer and Dropbox. This doesn't mean these people won't open files from Box but it's lightyears easier to send people files through programs they know and recognize than programs they don't know and don't recognize. If Box were promoted more heavily from a consumer-facing standpoint vs. a business-facing one, perhaps more people in more industries would be more aware of it as an option.

Pros: The software offers a large amount of storage at lower cost than other competing solutions that I've found. The free account offers 10 GB of storage, and the business plans are also affordable for what you get. Additionally, the security features on the business account are very useful!

Cons: A lot of the applications I've used this software for are between several different organizations. In these instances, I've often run into issues with some users being unable to upload documents, or having trouble viewing different uploads if you have ties to box links from several different organizations. This could be just part of the learning curve that I haven't figured out yet, but the UI was not intuitive to show me how to do this.

Overall: Easy to share sensitive information across large product teams without breaking the bank.

Pros: The most I like about Box is the ability to store confidential documents. You can also set up who you would like to have access and give them different levels of permissions such as just uploading to a folder, or editing and more. Great for collaborating a confidential place for multiple users.

Cons: The system seems to be user friendly and at this time I do not have any negative feedback to provide about Box. It is working for our needs currently.

Overall: The greatest benefit is the ability to have your confidential folders or projects and collaborate with a number of other people that you can give limited or different levels of access.

Very flexible and easy to administrate.

Pros: Box really nails it on several fronts. Unlimited storage with the plan we have, easy to view and set permissions, robust reporting, and the company seems to be very devoted to moving the product forward.

Cons: I really only have 2 issues with Box. The first one is it seems like the sync is a bit delayed. Once something syncs on one device it sometimes takes a bit for after syncing on another device. The second issue is more of a major one to me. Box doesn't support old hardware/software very well in my opinion. They are constantly dropping support for older operating systems. Sometimes this forces us to upgrade hardware so we can upgrade software and stay in the supported versions of Box. Many of their new services aren't compatible with OS version from 2 or more years ago.

Overall: We were able to fully move our data storage solution into the cloud and administrate it well.

Pros: This is an amazing software for team file storage. Everyone within an organization has easy access to files, it's easy to share and download, it's secure and the business version has more storage than you'll ever need. Highly recommend to anyone needing space in a team environment.

Cons: No critical feedback to say about it, it's an extremely straightforward, simple and functional platform.

Pros: - Mobility : Access and manage content on any device, anywhere at anytime.
- Easy to use : share files, view versions, assign tasks, and comment seamlessly.
- Security : Secure links to documents stored directly in Box; update a document and fix if it required without having to send out another version or a new link.

Cons: - Limited functionality with the Desktop App (Box)
- Hard to find technical support
- When using the web interface, it is easy to overlook the pagination in directories with many files.

Pros: We are a small company and we normally use One Drive but we switched to Box for a short period of time due to a partner visiting and suggesting it. It was fairly straightforward but has a very big negative that I can't get over.

Cons: We only used it for a short time frame and I wouldn't go back. Online editing is a must! Once our company is bigger and we require more, hopefully that has changed and we will try it again.

Pros: Ease of use. I like that the space is unlimited. Links are given easily and I enjoy the sync feature. I can sync with my server so changes are automatically uploaded and available online.

Cons: I guess I have no cons but there is little that stands out
All of the file share sites seem to be on par with each other so i would love to see more notifcation functions and tracking features. Who made edits and when for example

Overall: Easily share files with business partners outside of my organization. Create folders for that can allow for real time collaboration.

Pros: It does what it says, and that's great. Its cloud storage and sync works well, almost as seamlessly as Dropbox. My organization provides all employees with accounts and it has been great to have it organization-wide. I feel as comfortable about the security of the storage with Box as I would with anybody else.

Cons: I wish users had granular control over file privacy. I only use Box for storage of things that I would want available to anybody in my organization. For example, there are things I'm working on with a small group in my department that are sensitive and I keep those off of Box because the FAQ we got when we enrolled basically said that people in the organization can see our files. I don't know who has access, but I'd rather be cautious.

Pros: You can use it to assign tasks to other users which is great for small team projects.
You can also create formularies to be filled directly on box so there is no need to create small documents for certain information.
Great also to keep track of files changes.
The two factor authentication is a must specially for business accounts to keep all information safe.

Cons: It has a 5GB file limit which can be limiting for some users, but for a regular business or personal use I find that enough.

Great product for storing data to be accessed anywhere.

Pros: Box is my favorite online storage solution. I have used a couple others, but Box is my go to because they give you 5 gigs for free. I use it when I need a file and need it to be available anywhere I am at.

Cons: There isn't really anything that I don't like about Box. The website layout is somewhat difficult to navigate but that is my only minor gripe.

Great for a large team.

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.
