Great but expensive for individual or family use

This is a great way to store all online content but the price is high. I could buy a portable hard drive every 3 months, instead.
But the security is good and it removes risk of virus on hard drive contaminating the drive so I pay the cost.
Wish the had a non-commercial option.

Slow, bugs, seems to lock up on updates, offline files frustrating

Seem to be unable to share files to it from other apps - the icon is there but it just crashes when it tries. Offline is unreliable, gets “stuck” on a file, or seems to, if you mark a folder for offline, keep trying to redownload entire folder simple because a single file was updated in it (this might not be the case, but it does repeatedly try to download my half-gig folder having already once succeeded). Uploading is slow, well beyond any network slowness. It’s just generally slow when you try to preview a file. And if things do get “stuck” you need to kill the app to get it to do any more of its background stuff. All this fiddling around versus its main, cross-platform, cross-OS competition which seems to just do its thing... generally disappointing. I want a cloud solution to keep personal seperate from (home) work, but this doesn’t seem to be it.

Good cloud storage, even the free account

I’ve been using Box for a couple of years and have only encountered an occasional problem and these were fixed very easily and quickly.
My only gripe is with the iOS app that it doesn’t recognise the email field and prompt the password manager to enter the email address that’s used for the account. Once you get to the next screen and you’re asked for your password, of course the app will automatically invoke the password manager. But if you’re looking to try and protect yourself against keystroke logging, then automatic filling in the email address would be a better way of doing things.
