    It's a great deal and I'm sorely tempted to go for a Terabyte.

    The only downfall for me is they bill in dollars, not

    We have a terabyte on Google Drive, which is included with our Google Fiber gigabit internet. We also have 105GB on Dropbox, which costs $100/year. Dropbox is worth the money and we'll keep it despite having a terabyte on GD. Dropbox is more flexible than GD, Dropbox has support for Linux and Dropbox is way, waaaaaaay faster uploading/downloading/syncing than GD. Dropbox + Google Fiber just kicks butt. I was very surprised GD was so much slower.

    Not at all. Dropbox is by far the most flexible and useful, and is leaps and bounds the faster than any other cloud storage service I've tried. Only Dropbox is anywhere near fast enough to take advantage of Google Fiber speeds.

    Worth every friggin' penny. From my perspective, you are the one getting ripped off.

    PS: That should have been 105GB for $100/year, not 100Mb in my previous post. Oops. I've corrected it.

    I have accounts with Drive, Copy, DropBox, Box, and a few others. DropBox is my favorite for ease of use across multiple platforms, but they all have different strengths and weaknesses.;)

    Just thought I'd pass this along... happened to notice in an article on How-to-Geek.

    Price was formerly $4.99/mo for 50Gb, so this is quite an upgrade.

    It's only $9.99/mo for 1Tb!

    Both prices are billed monthly, so there's no long term commitment.
