Dropbox Drops its Price for Storage

The only thing I could ever say bad about Dropbox was that if you needed to purchase additional storage space from them, it was expensive.

When Google Drive came out, that became even more apparent.

Tonight, Dropbox announced lower prices for storage, and the option to buy more then 100 gigabytes.

They dropped the price of 100 gigabytes to what 50 cost, $9.95 a month.

Two hundred gigabytes is now $19.95 a month.  It was 100 gigabytes was earlier.

And now you can buy 500 gigabytes for $49.95 a month.

While much improved, it is still higher then Google.  

Google gives you twice as much for the same price :  $9.99 for 200 gigabytes, $19.99 for 400 gigabytes, and a full terabyte (1000 gigabytes) for $49.95.

It must be hard for Dropbox to compete with someone like Google who buys its datacenters by the square mile  (perhaps a slight exaggeration).  Even so, I love Dropbox and now feel like if I needed to buy more space on it, it would be a reasonable value.  Kudos Dropbox.

Of course, one of the best things about Dropbox is if you use this link to signup, you get extra space over their 2 gigabytes of free space, and I get a bit more too for you signing up with my link.
