I have a ShareBuilder account but haven't used them since CapitalOne acquired ING. I found the site to be easy to use, and checking out their services recently, they have begun to offer a lot more investing options than in the past. If you have a CapitalOne 360 account, it's tremendously easy to transfer money and make immediate transactions.
What I like about ShareBuilder is that there's no minimum balance to set up an account, allowing me to just invest a little bit of money if I want to. There are a few downsides to using ShareBuilder's brokerage servicesthough , including a limited number of mutual funds to choose from, high broker fees for some transactions, and iffy customer service.
