Agreed--you can get a Dreamhost package with 120GB bandwidth per month and 2400 MB storage, and a free domain registration for $8... a month, but it's WAY better than what LJ is offering. :(

I think that LJ is doing something different from being a host though and so comparing between the two is like apples and some other fruit that looks a lot like apples.

LJ isn't trying to offer a hosting service like Dreamhost. LJ's space's value and difference lies with how it interacts with LJ. This space is great for people who want to lock a lot of pictures and make a lot of phoneposts (without worrying about moving them off later - a convenience issue). I suppose one wouldn't have to worry about bandwidth either should they create a super popular meme and have the pictures in LJ's space.

Right now I do have a Dreamhost account and the current amount of space is enough for me. However, as photobuilder and other space usage features mature, maybe there will be more demand for this service.

I might agree with you if the Fotobuilder software wasn't so flawed. Every paid account user on my friends list that has tried hosing an image or two, and nothing even large, gets a lovely red X most of the time.

I wouldn't be so skeptical if Livejournal's service actually worked. But working and Livejournal have been separate throughts for a while now.
