    This week, Amazon revealed that it will no longer offer an unlimited storage plan in its Amazon Drive consumer service. Instead, the firm will price cloud storage at $60 per 1 TB.

    Amazon first announced unlimited cloud storage for individuals back in early 2015. At the time, I noted how this service compared to OneDrive, Google Drive, Apple iCloud, and Dropbox, and determined that Microsoft’s offering was still superior. But Amazon was offering what it called “infinite” storage for photos, videos, files, documents, movies, and music for just $60 per year. (If you wanted just infinite photo storage, the cost was $12 per year.)

    No more...

    As stated in the article, if you have Amazon prime, you still will get unlimited photo storage. The only thing I use Amazon storage for is my Amazon music library. I utilize Microsoft OneDrive to keep all of my cell phone pictures. I have it set to upload my camera role automatically, I pay the $99 a year for Office 365 Home and that covers all of my Office installs as well as 5TB of online storage space for my family.

    No contest really - $60 for 1TB, $69 for MS Office + 1 TB for one user, or $99 for MS Office for 5 users and 1 T each as you say. Even the one user plan equates to MS Office for $9.
