    I have around 1.5TB of files that I would like to backup.

    What is the best cloud storage for my need? In term of speed and price and stability of the company who is hosting it.

    Please discuss, thanks.

    Have a look at https://pogoplug.com. $5 a month for supposedly unlimited storage. I have a free account with them.

    Box.com also gives 50GB for free, which admittedly isn't near your requirement but is nice. I use it too.

    question is, will pogo be around for the next few years?

    i have dropbox and google drive. i have lots of documents i scanned in and saved as pdf's to dropbox

    1.5TB just buy 2 hard drives or 1 per year and use that to back it up

    How do you get 50GB from Box?

    Box has a file size limit of $250MB per file. Pretty much useless for anyone with 1.5GB in data.

    Thanks everyone for replying.

    I think Pogoplug is good. $5 per month is a pretty good deal.

    I also found out another good one, Copy.com by Barracuda, just signed up using someone's link and I got 15GB plus the extra 5GB by using someone's referral. Sound like a good deal too.
