**Recommend reasonably price unlimited online / cloud backup**

Can anyone please recommend some online / cloud storage backup providers that they have actually used, and a few positive points on why they chose that provider over another?

I use dropbox, but dont like the idea of getting charged the amount they are asking for to upgrade.  In the UK, I can use www.my-hub.co.uk from the carphone warehouse for about £2.99 per month.

Livedrive seems to be another.  

I need to sync or at least backup to 2 computers and possibly two PDAs (Iphone and andoid) and an app for each would be good to access the data.

In terms of security, if they can use truecrypt that would be great, but I'm more likely to go with a provider that can ask me to provide random characters from my password than simply type my full password (in case of key stroke logging etc).

Suggestions please.

appears to be more for commercial or web development use rather than home use for online backup?
