We use Dropbox for storing assets. We have mainly photos and images on there.

We keep the restricted information on Dropbox. It is easier to manage access.

I like Dropbox. The fact that it is overriding files when two people are writing at the same time or if one has forgotten to close it is a little annoying. The collaboration aspect is not as good as with Google Docs.
