Dropbox or SugarSync?

I just signed up for the new file sharing service called SugarSync.


After reading the features page, I got that excited quivery feeling when you are closer in line and going to be NEXT on the pony ride. If it does what it says it does, it might just knock my trusty Dropbox into the lesser loved sibling. Although Dropbox has become such a trusty companion and important part of my workflow, I can't imagine loving anything more. But you get 5G space on the free service (look carefully on the home page, of course it's the smallest print). One of the things that the creators promise is the ability to sync/upload via email, share files of any size, and get this: stream music to your iPhone (drool).I guess I'm in and I might be in love.

Here's what the creators promise:

Reasons You'll Love SugarSync

Secure, Automatic Data Protection

As you work, your files are continuously backed up to your secure,
 personal SugarSync website using SSL encryption.
Once in our servers, all data is then encrypted with 128-bit AES. 

Anywhere, Anytime Access

If you've got an Internet connection or a smart phone,
you've got a mobile office. So take your BlackBerry to Bangkok,
open your laptop in London – or just stop by an
Internet café in Culver City.
Wherever you go, your files will be waiting for you.
Sync Without Limits
With SugarSync, you can sync as many computers and mobile
devices as you want on a single account — and changes
saved on one computer are instantaneously synced among the rest.

Seamless Collaboration

Easily send files of any size to anyone, from anywhere.
We'll save your file versions and make sure the right data goes to
the right team member, and they can send back an updated document
in just a few clicks. 

File Versioning

Have you ever saved over a document and immediately
wished you hadn't? With SugarSync, we'll save, sync
and back up the five latest versions of any
given file — automatically. In a tough spot,
it can be a real lifesaver. 

Enjoy Your Photos and Music On the Go

We know there's more to life (and backup) than work.
That's why SugarSync automatically organizes
 your photos into online albums for viewing and sharing,
 and allows you to stream your music limitlessly
to any browser or iPhone. 

Cross-Platform Functionality

You can use SugarSync on any modern version of Mac
(including Snow Leopard) as well as any
Windows operating system.

Our professional customer support agents can answer any
questions you have about our Business service, from setup to
 setting storage limits. The call is free and it's open
to all Business Account administrators. 

Administrative Control - Business Account

Our powerful administrative tools make it easy to
