atrapat (112) 20 GB assuming it's for videos. A photo only site with a lower limit would be reasonable.

RagingBuddhist (65) I say it depends on the size of the files. Naturally, as a consumer, I don't want any limit. But, taking the site's side, I would say any limit that keeps someone from downloading the site in a couple of hours with a download manager. I'd absolutely hate to be accused of "sucking [a] site dry" :rolls eyes:

Drooler (220) As a rule of thumb, I'd say 20GB. That would probably be enough for a good pile of files per day and even give the download junkies "enough," though probably not enough to them!

But we do share the road and sites have to handle traffic, so you have to give a little sometimes. It's good for you. Believe it or not, it can even contribute to character building.

For myself, I couldn't imagine downloading more than 5GB per day. I usually pass on 50% or more of whatever a site has. And I actually spend some time viewing it.

Capn (28) Well for covenience as a consumer, I don't particularly want to see any limit. As I am sure I don't appreciate the problems for the website, from their point of view I would say providing the customer has paid for a months access download limit is a bit of a moot point. Download speed is another issue. :0/

lk2fireone (196) As a consumer, I'd rather not have to worry about download limits. I'm more into pix than vids, so my daily downloading is normally less than 5 GB. But if I'm at a video site, and I download the high-res videos, the amount of downloading for a single day can easily exceed 12-15 GB. And that's with a slow connection (about 150 kbps). High-res video files are large, and use up a lot of bandwidth. Who wants to worry they will exceed the daily download limit and be denied access for 12-24 hours, or have to keep checking how much you have downloaded in a single day?

mbaya (366) I am mostly into videos, so I voted no limit. If the videos are HD it is easy to go over 5 or even 10 GB. Even for smaller videos, I feel a need for flexibility. I cannot download every day, so when I do I ususally do a lot. Further, on some sites you get so little information as to what is in the video, that I download first and then check it out to see what I want to keep.

Monahan (44) If I pay a premium for access to HD where a single video can approach 2 Gb (today, who knows what it'll be in the next year or two) I want a much higher limit.

I agree that the idea of limits is reasonable, but the limit must be set high enough to provide the subscriber with the product (s)he has paid for.

My answer is 20Gb for a standard quality offering and 40Gb for HD offerings, but that's not available, so I answered 20Gb.

messmer (137) I've basically switched from pictures to video and with today's huge HD files any download limit becomes an irritation. For example, yesterday I downloaded a high quality (not HD) DVD scene that was 900 MB large. Doesn't take long to reach any limit that way.

james4096 (126) In reality, I don't usually download more than 5 GB per day from one site. That is only because I'm usually part of 3 or more sites. Part of me say, "no limit," but I understand that the sites pay for the bandwidth. Some sites get hammered by hackers and stolen passwords driving up their costs.
I guess 20 is fair, because like others have said, you can be surprised how quickly a small limit like 5 GB can go by.

pat362 (375) A 20GB download limit per day is not unreasonable for most of todays sites. Where I can see that being a problem is in those starting to offer HD content. HD is going to increase the size of each file and then 20GB may not be such a large amount anymore.

turboshaft (24) I can only tolerate a site with no download limits (though they can still limit the number of connections), but it really depends on the space limits of my hard drives.

I am sure I know where badandy stands on this one. ;)

badandy400 (103) No limits are good. I can tolerate very high limits, 50+ GB per day. These are only useful for preventing many people from using the same user name. I would much rather they use IP address tracking to prevent this though.

Turboshaft. I am guessing you know exactly where I stand on a personal basis. I need sites with no limits to keep going. That is a big part of the reason I keep Videobox around. When I am with a site that has a limit I can use Videobox to make up the rest of the day. DDFProd do not seem to have limits either, I have been running them for days on end.

There are a few sites I have found through TBP that I would sign up for but they have extremely low limits. Some of them are even as low as 500 MB, that is hardly enough got an average video!

I do not have the largest connection out there, I live in the middle of nowhere, and I need 32 GB per day. So all of the listed amounts are not good.

alexmedia (22) I think that quite big (more than 10 GB) download limit is acceptable.
Anyway I don't download too much videos from pay site.

Colm4 (10) The most I downloaded this far is 10 Gb in a day. But still I don't like limits or restrictions for principle reasons.

The only thing that sucks is when some sites require you to sign in again after a certain amount of time -- very frustrating!

nygiants03 (162) 10 gb is suitable. Depending on the site you should be able to download atleast 20 full length videos a day with that standard. I rarely download more than a gb a day anyways so it doesn't pertain to me.
