"Free file-storage service in a premium outfit !"

What do you like best?

The best thing i like about media-fire is that my download links are not cluttered with disturbing ads ruining the whole experience.

As a down-loader, when i see that media-file is being used for file sharing, i trust that i would be able to directly get my files without worrying about waiting time of limited download quota.

And as an up-loader, i enjoy uploading and then organizing my files on my free 10 gigs of space in an easy to use straight forward account interface.

I also like the fact that they seem to keep my files for forever, unlike other similar services that like keeping my files to them being regularly downloaded.

Apparently That is not the case with media fire.

I logged into my account after almost a year of inactivity, and to my surprise i found that files i uploaded in 2014 are still in my account and were not deleted even though they were not even downloaded once for a long period.

What do you dislike?

Honestly, i have always found media-fire to be "too good to be free" service. And have always wondered how are they still live with so little ads shown on free accounts. I tried to figure a feature or a fact that i dislike about media-fire, but as a long term free user; there is not much that i dislike abut them.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need a great tool to host and share files/resource online without having to worry about your files being deleted for inactivity or being unavailable for a limited download quota, then go with media-file: the service is really above the competition.

"Review for MediaFire"

What do you like best?

What I like best is the fact that it is free to start off. The storage capability of a free account is a whopping 10GB! That has been plenty of room for my first year in using MediaFire. Next year I plan to upgrade, just because of the extra bonuses that come with a paid subscription. The return on investment is a no brainer to spend a little extra money for the excellent features.

What do you dislike?

There is only one downside that I can think of for MediaFire. That would be the time it takes to do a batch upload of files. For example: I send out a weekly email blast to each stakeholder in the community. To create this email I first upload the files (photos, pdfs, documents, videos) to MediaFire. Then I will use another provider to generate the email campaign and send it away. This whole process has been streamlined by using MediaFire cutting my time nearly in half from start to finish. The problem with MediaFire is that when a file is uploaded it is queued, then uploads, then has to be verified. I feel like the verification process takes a little bit longer than it should. I understand that during this process the type of file being uploaded is detected and the file is sorted automatically which is nice. However, I feel like I could sort the file easier and faster myself when uploading.

Recommendations to others considering the product

For sure try this out before anything else. For file sharing and data storage and management I highly encourage the use of MediaFire.

"Mediocre website, slow downloads, file upload limits"

What do you like best?

I like the options for quick, anonymous uploads and downloads, and relatively large file size limits. Best for 200-800mb files, don't use for anything larger or you start running into serious time issues.

What do you dislike?

Slower than alternative services like Dropbox, Mega, OneDrive, Box.net. This is not the most efficient, fast service, and it does have file size restrictions, unlike certain other file upload services. If you don't need anonymity, use Dropbox or another service that provides more performance and upload size. If you need anonymity and are uploading files that are <= 800mb, then this is a perfectly acceptable choice.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Consider other potential file providers - including Mega, Dropbox, Box.net, OneDrive, Amazon S3, etc.

"MediaFire is a Great Way to Find and Store"

What do you like best?

The ease. It makes working together easier. When you have so many documents for so many clients and internal goings-on, those documents can be easy to lose and difficult to find. The entire workflow can back up just because we are trying to compile and quickly find all sorts of documents to put together for a proposal or for a style guide. And for client-related documents, the one-time links are ideal.

Not to mention how easy it is to share things with people outside of the company. Working with hundreds of freelancers who need eyes on the same thing, this is just a great solution for that. The ease of access is definitely noteworthy. Plus, the file sizes it allows are tremendous.

What do you dislike?

It would be nice if there was a chat feature. A live chat is always helpful when we need quick response. Plus deleting inactive files and not being able to upload folders can slow things down as well. If you're trying to do the power upload from your phone, it does take up a bit more battery. So you'll need to stay plugged in.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The free option is great, but limited file sizes. The pro option is wonderful if you need a place to store and share whatever it is you need, whether that's documents, audio, video, what have you. It's not the most beautiful layout I've ever seen, but it's certainly not the worst, either!

"Great place to keep your stuff"

What do you like best?

It is dependable in my opinion andMuch more affordable compared to other services with similar capacities.

There is a certain level of trust I have with MediaFire for the fact that it has been around a long time since launching its web-hosting services years ago.

What do you dislike?

Customer support isn't very responsive.

Can’t download more than one file at a time from a free account.

No live chat nor phone support.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend this product if you're looking for a no hassle, affordable, simple, easy to use cloud storage service. I have no experience using their services at an enterprise level but on a personal use level it's, the right one for me

"One of the good OG cloud services"

What do you like best?

Mediafire starts at 50 GB for free accounts, which for our purposes is more than enough for our redundant cloud backup. Setup is a breeze, uploading files is also very easy to do.

What do you dislike?

There isn't anything that we did not like at all that we see so far.

Recommendations to others considering the product

MediaFire is one of the OG cloud providers, you can also share files with other users as well like the other cloud storage providers. Having 50 GB out of the gate for free users is a big plus as others offer no more than 5 GB (Google is 15).

"Used to be irreplaceable, now... Replaceable"

What do you like best?

It's easy to use. MediaFire's no-frills, basic UX and functionality make it easy to transfer files, password protected or not. If you need to dump something for an online community, it's a good option, but peer to peer transfers typically require more than Mediafire offers.

What do you dislike?

it lacks features like anonymity, archiving, large data caps, security, and appealing pricing models that competitors like Google have mastered. And when I have the choice between another niche service provider and Google, I'm going Google...

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need a quick and dirty file transfer solution, this is a great option.

I'd be concerned about clients seeing you as unprofessional or being wary of downloading nondescript files in "sketchy" links, so be very clear in walking them through the process.

"Happy customer who have used for many years"

What do you like best?

1- I think the most important thing is that you can download different files at the same time.

2- You can try as a free user.

3- The interface is nice.

4- simple to use.

5-folder system is great.

+Also The organization that makes large investments in file storage sites to comply with copyright protection laws, and whose audits are very strict.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes I'm downloading another file after a day of downloading a file via browser. but mediafire is showing and downloading the old file in the new link.This happened to me a few times.

unfortunately in google play and app store, most of the mobile applications I use for business support only dropbox, google drive, onedrive. mediafire is not very popular.

What do you like best?

Easy access to upload and view your files on nearly any device.

We can get more free storage, like referring friends, downloading their software, or posting MediaFire links on social media.

Non-users can upload to our account

There’s a feature called FileDrop that lets you create public folders that others can use to upload files to your account.

What do you dislike?

There are a lot of advertisements

The IOS mobile app version can be improved

Recommendations to others considering the product

First impression of MediaFire is positive, and not only because of its free 50 GB. I appreciate how easy it is to upload files.

"One of the best and secure file sharing softare."

What do you like best?

I like how fast and how quick it is to upload and share files. it is simple, easy and reliable. It is also great for sharing files around with colleagues which are too large for email.

What do you dislike?

The only thing I can think of is the time it takes to upload large files. depending o the file type it can neither take too long or be quick which uses time which we don't have in this like of business.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Always familirise yourself withthe software before you put it to use

"Simple File Sharing and Storing Service"

What do you like best?

Mediafire is simple yes I mean really simple than Dropbox. Mediafire is available for both iOS and Android that means files you uploaded on Mediashare is available Wherever you go.

What do you dislike?

There is no standalone desktop available for Mediashare. PC syncing is really importnat for a good cloud storage now a days.

"Great Service for Files"

What do you like best?

Easy to access the files across devices and easy to share files to multiple people and download with no problems.Great amount of storage. The uploads are most of the time very quick and it can be anonymous.

What do you dislike?

Need a better application across plateforms. There are also file size restriction and it can be difficult to upload multiple files at once and store them into a folder. So the process can become tedious.

"10GB Free of Storage!"

What do you like best?

I like that it is a free service and I also like that their monthly fee is less than $4. That is half the price that anyone else is charging. I may even upgrade even though I don't have the need yet.

What do you dislike?

The free service has ads and you are only limited to 10 GBs

Recommendations to others considering the product

no hassle trial and cheap monthly subscriptions.

"Very Handy Resource"

What do you like best?

The fact that not only is it something that anyone with the link can access, but the transfer rates are really fast as well. So it's a definite plus.

What do you dislike?

The fact that sometimes if the server is bogged down it can take a bit longer than normal to get time sensitive documents or files to someone else.

"Another Cloud in the Sky Keeps Files Raining upon You"

What do you like best?

Intuitive interface with great UX directions so everyone can get onboard easily — and the free version starts you with 10G.

What do you dislike?

So far, the only limit is getting people to use this when they are already attached to another resource.

Recommendations to others considering the product

play with the free version and then scale as your needs grow! it's a great resource.
