    I like MediaFire because it doesn't make you wait a certain time or make you complete offers to show the download link. [​IMG]

    So what about you guys?

    Megaupload because it's ridiculously fast even for non-members.
    All other sites are limited to around 100~300 KB/sec, while i can get up to over 6 MB/sec using Mega.

    Time Limit - I assume you mean the wait time. I don't really care as long as the download speed makes up for it.
    Number of Downloads Limit - I can bypass this with dynamic IP.
    File Size - What? Most everything I download is split up into 100MB parts anyways.
    Speed Limit - This matters the most to me.
    Completion of Offers - I would not download from a site that makes you do this.
    Inability to download multiple files at once - Don't really care, speed limit matters more.
    CAPTCHA - Don't really care, I can do these easily.

    "Time Limit" was a confusing term. Switched to "Wait Time".

    I like Novaup. Max 1gb file uploads but really awesome speeds and parallel downloads [​IMG]

    ...But most people don't really use it so I would say Mediafire and Megaupload and one of the worst is Rapidshare (Curse that site).

    I LOVE Megaupload for great services for even free users. Great speed as well (sometines hit 5MB/s! Average @ 1MB/s). RS is just putrid and for some reason still used.

    Only downside to MU is that free users are restricted to under a Gigabyte per file download and single slot downloads. I'm thinking about purchasing a lifetime membership there since I use it so much!

    Mediafire. No waiting or nothing just download your file.

    I think we can all agree that rapidshare is shit.

    But I quite like Megaupload, they're arguably the fairest of free downloads.
    Personaly I hate the waiting times, I mean not how they make you wait 30 seconds before downloading, but how sites like rapidshit make you wait 20 minutes for a download slot then tell you there are no available slots. Bullshit.
