Our take:  SugarSync has quickly won us over and we are taking advantage of their free plan while we continue to test out their service.  So far we love it, and fine their Android and iPad apps to be fantastic.  The software runs seamlessly in the background and does not consume too much of our precious resources.  Going back to apps for a moment, we love their updated Android app and the way it can be used to instantly sync photos taken by our phone.  There’s no need to have to email them to ourselves or connect our phone to our computer.  Now they instantly appear in our SugarSync folder.  Also, SugarSync’s referral program is second-to-none.  It’s so easy to earn vast amounts of free storage that you might never have to pay for an account (though even if you do the pricing is so incredibly fantastic).  

SugarSync is very similar to Dropbox (and is a good dropbox alternative) in that you can easily sync folders across computers in addition to online backup.  It has great features for media streaming, mobile syncing (including auto syncing photos and folders from Android devices), and folders selection and permissions/passwords settings.

SugarSync’s web interface has a bit more functionality than Dropbox, with its separation of photos from files and also a very useful direct editing feature where you can edit files from within the webapp.  Like Dropbox you can also share files and folders very easily.
