    That's right, they are back as a cloud system uploading service again.

    Access mega.co.nz and register (as soon as possible because the servers are over used)

    What are your opinions?

    Mega != Megaupload.

    :)

    From what I've read, they use some kind of encryption that should help them stay for a while

    The only thing that makes Megaupload different from any other filesharing service is the fact that Kim Dotcom got in trouble with the law. Seriously. That's all. It's just a filesharing site, there's nothing unique about it. If they'll provide great service on good terms, great. If not, meh.

    The way they're doing it now is different though, and that's key.

    Eh, I'm no fan of Dotcom or Megaupload.

    Oh, there was a name change?

    Well, I guess you can just say I'm not a Mega-man.

    Wow, this takes me back to the times I actually downloaded from those filesharing sites.
    Now I just use torrents.
    I don't think I have the patience and time anymore to download all 38 parts of 1 movie.

    Normally I'd agree, but MegaUpload had some of the best download speeds around, at least for me.

    I think it highly depended on the server, but yes, it usually was the "platform of choice" for me when it came to downloads - quality service. Here's for hoping that Mega won't disappoint.

    Is there a premium service? What are the limits to using it for free? Uploading and downloading stuff i mean.

    Depends, the premium service gives you from 500GB of storage up to 4TB

    There's 3 different premium packages, one with 500GB, one with 1TB and another one with 4TB.

    Free membership have 50GB of storage, which its not bad, the best things premium or not, everyone gets the same download/upload speed :)

    I correctly predicted what the main responses will be.
    And btw, that's just your fucking stupid opinion.
