I would love to use this for a number of things I'm involved with, but I am surprised by the package that is offered.
I'm not saying that what they offer (1 year of 350 GB for $800) is not worth the price, but I am disappointed that there isn't a smaller package.
My needs for this kind of thing are more like 10-20GB. The team features are very attractive, but there's no way I am going to sign up for a package that large.
I'm sure Dropbox has put a lot of thought into the decision though. I'm very curious about where they are going with this and if they will ever offer a smaller team account.
Personally I'd love to see a team account somewhere around $10 a month for 10 GB and 5 users. Basically same price as their Pro 50 individual account, but with 5 users and 1/5th of the capacity.
I think this is more an issue of pricing psychology. The price should be marketed as $65 a month for a team of up to 5, $10 for each additional team member.
As is this is of no use to me. There is no free trial so I can't see if it works (for me) first. No way I'm springing $800 up front without seeing the merchandise. This is a shame because Dropbox is a great service, and I don't pay for a personal account (don't need more than 2GB), but could totally see myself paying for a work account.
If Dropbox could be configured as a backing store for a NAS (eg QNAP) it would take over the world.
Disclosure: I work for a startup that offers digital asset management and distribution to large corporations.
'Teams' is a great first step, but it's not a reasonable solution to my problem yet.
Personally, I would pay this price if I had a team of more than about 5 people. Simply based on the fact how reliable Dropbox has been for me and I think it will be hard for anybody to give me a better product.
I've been half wishing for a "master dropbox account" for some time and I'm glad to know it is available, even if it's a bit expensive.
They could have made that more clear.
It seems much too expensive to me at this point.
I will say that DB seems to have really awkward tiers. I could see people eating up a $13.50 per mo. per user rate a little easier than a $795 bomb.
