all much of a muchness, all offer same thing but trying to be 5c cheaper than the other guy (and the extra discount if scroll down to end of the page.)

I found the most important thing to check was the price after the first 1/2/3 years -
most of the cheap ones can rise a few hundred percent and it's only say 2 years years later when the renewal invoice comes that you realise it's time to move again and again and again.

I gave up trying to save that extra dollar per month or get the extra 5 GB of storage etc, rather chose on:
1. been around a good number of years,
2. has a good enough rep (user comments - those "top 10" lists are ALL sponsored crap),
3. has a price that will stay pretty much the same 2-3 years later.

of course when checking user reviews there are fake / paid reviews: negative about the competition and good ones about themselves - not all are fake but most of those light on detail...
check the 2, 3 and 4 star comments, if there's many more 4's than 2's and the 3 stars mostly complain about something that won't ever affect you then usually it'll usually be OK.
