    Something like Megaupload. I'm thinking about getting rid of UTorrent and spending the money for more peace of mind/security. Which one gives the best bang for your buck? My main criteria is for movies.

    Thanks

    If you're using Megaupload and uTorrent, I might as well tell you about FilesTube.

    You want a download site or an upload site?

    Rapidshare, Megaupload, and the like don't cost a penny to download from, for anyone.
    Mediafire and Megaupload don't require any wait between file downloads, either.

    Any site you pay to join in order to eliminate between-file download waits is obviously applicable to that one site only, so you'll still encounter the wait at any others.

    So it seems your question more regards uploading files. For that, you'd need to constrast/compare the TOS at the various sites to see which one most closely fits your individual needs, seems to me.

    i think you misinterpreted his question. it's clear that he's looking for a dl site rather than an ul site. cuz the question itself contains "getting rid of utorrent" statement and "peace of mind/security" statement which means he is in search of a dl site so that he'll be able to dl files from one site thru a single open port instead of constantly open ports and hundreds of concurrent connections which is the case if he uses a torrent app.

    That may be so.
    But since the vast majority of popular non-torrent file hosting sites are free of charge for anyone to download from, then I'd be unclear on why he/she is looking to spend money.

    afaik, there're certain limitiations for free / non-registered users such as max dl size (can't dl a file larger than a certain size), no parallel dl's, etc. that might be why he's willing to pay for them. still, i don't think it's worth to pay for it just to bypass minor disadvantages like these.

    I agree with you.

    The O.P. of this thread seems to have vanished.

    Actually there is if you download tons. I remember having to wait after downloading ~14 GB from Megaupload. Think it was less for Mediafire.

    Looks generous like Megaupload, I'll add to list.
