Edit:
$60/year ($5/mo) for US users. Same as Carbonite, which I believe offers more software features.
US has had this option for awhile I think

I think I have a free 6 months of this that I haven't redeemed yet. Got it when I ordered my graphics card off of Amazon.

Use it!

I think Corey might have used a backup plan like this before. Pretty reasonable at $5 a month and unlimited.

Amazon Cloud Storage has literally the worst interface in the history of the world. If they guaranteed me 3gigs real speed per second and unlimited storage, I'm not sure I'd use this right now.

So you understand how much I hate it then. You can't upload folders, you can even select multiple folders, so you have to go into each one specifically. You can't prioritize files, you can't move the drive location if you need to. Not only that, but if you turn it on. Your internet will CRAWL. It has no bandwidth management.

Also, I don't know why your quote went to caps. I hit a button and it changed everything.

...NOT!

https://www.amazon.com/b?node=16591160011

Amazon is now providing options for customers to choose the storage plan that is right for them. Amazon will no longer offer an unlimited storage plan. Instead, we'll offer storage plans of 100 GB for $11.99 and 1 TB for $59.99, up to 30 TB for an additional $59.99 per TB.

Are these per year or per month?

Has to be per year. They were offering unlimited for $60/year. No way they now offer 1TB for $60/month...right?
