PhotoStick photo storage anyone?

I thought I had seen this here but it didn't come up in search. Does anyone have this product?

Perhaps I'm missing something, but it appears to just be a USB stick (or USB hard drive for the 1TB model) and some software that finds and copies photos to it. That's hardly revolutionary, and certainly not worth the price they are asking.

The photos of them on their website show USB drives that are very familiar to me, as they are the same ones we've used in the past for promotional give-aways - some of the cheapest and nastiest USB drives you can buy, but with your logo printed on them for a small fee!

Yes they are USB sticks but they go through the photos and don't pick up duplications, and you can use them on multiple devices and they will skip any images that they already copied from another device. Or so it says.

Pretty pricey for what is simple data management, I think cloud storage would be equally convenient and competitive.

Even I find cloud storage to be reliable and user friendly and there are variety of vendors to choose from, in different price range
