    What's the best? I'm looking for online storage and will use 100-500gb stored online at a time.

    Ideally I'm looking for something as swift and simple as a USB drive, but online.

    It has to be a storage not a back up service. With fast file access and upload/download times ...

    I need a 'good' service more than a cheap service.

    Any recommendations?

    The ones that come to mind are:
    -iDrive
    -Jungle Drive
    -xDrive
    -skydrive

    They have their disadvantages and restrictions, has anyone found something better?

    Thanks.

    You will be limited to the speed of your internet connection for this; this may not be as fast as a USB drive. Plus congestion on the net can slow you down even more. You will never get an online connection that's as fast as a local connection.
