This week’s poll question is: What Do You Think Of Google Drive?


Since Google Drive launched Get 5GB of Free Cloud Storage With Google Drive [Updates] Get 5GB of Free Cloud Storage With Google Drive [Updates] Read More less than a month ago, we’ve been debating, discussing and thinking about this new addition to the cloud storage world. Is there a real need for another service? Does Google Drive offer something that Dropbox, Skydrive and kin don’t? With it’s 5GB free storage and it’s seamless Google integration, Google Drive does seem to have something to offer, but will you desert your current service for it? What do you think of this new contender?

What makes Google Drive better or worse than others? What do you like or don’t like about it? Explain your vote below.

    Following a complete re-install, I was pleased to find that my history ( browsing data ) was there for me on Google. I will continue to use Google Chrome and Google products, such as, " Drive ," due to my trust in them. This is not to say that I will not check into other cloud services, but because I am only saving word documents at this time, the free 5 gigs are plenty. When there is a need to make a monetary investment in any products, however, Google will always get strong consideration from me.
    In closing, I found that the document templates found in " Google Docs," and now in "Google Drive," to be quite helpful at times.
    Thank you, thank you very much.

    Google sure has been generous with their storage space, gmail offering upto 7gb on free accounts and now the google drive. Any chances our info is being used to some undisclosed advantage, i wonder.. Especially with the intent of big brother collaborating with big g.. Hmm.

    I have been using Google Drive for the last 2 weeks.... and I'm loving every minute of it! Best Product Google has come up yet. 10/10

    The 5GB free space is OK, but it doesn't allow for streaming of audio files, unlike Dropbox :-(

    google used to be know for generous storage space in gmail beating all the competition, it's unfortunate to see them lose there way and be beaten by 25Gb of skydrive space for free as compared to the weak 5Gb of space they offer. Dropbox well they aren't even competive anymore compared to skydrive and google prices..Dropbox will be gone within 2-3 years if they don't adapt to competition.

      Dropbox has the advantage of being really popular, and people are very used to it. But you're right. The free space they're offering is meek compared to other services. It is rather easy to increase that, though. I have 5.2GB just from referrals and Dropquests.

    Hi, personally I were using Google docs for almost all my cloud storage and now with the better Google Drive service I really got it improved and what I like is the great Web interface and unfortunately I was expecting 10 Gb to 25 Gb from Google but their plans looks impressive .

      Yes, that makes sense. If you were using Google Docs extensively, Google Drive would have an advantage over others.

        Though I hope Google implement a gift card system on their Google Checkout service, so we can maybe win them at Makeuseof or similar sites and use them o purchase extra storage .

    It is really hard for me to say one of these services is better than the other. I use it for some sharing, but not much (a real version control system is better for what I do). Other than that, I use it for on-the-go access to files. In that regard, Google Drive fails since it doesn't [yet] have an iPhone client.

    Honestly, at least for me, I have yet to see a feature other than amount of free space differentiate one from the other.

      Not having an iOS client is a huge disadvantage for them right now, but I'm sure it's on the way.

      I use Dropbox on my iPad all the time. Can't imagine switching to Drive and not having that.

    For me it's simply a matter of convenience. I already use pretty much all of Google's products, so why not Drive?
