About The Photo Stick
The Photo Stick has arrived to keep your pictures and videos, up to 60,000 of them, secure and safe in its memory. Having a backup is essential in case anything occurs to your main modem or hard drive, such as a commonly used laptop. You will need the mobile version of the PhotoStick if you wish to use it directly on your smartphones.
The Photostick comes with a built-in app that allows you to easily transfer all your media files in one simple step so you can rest assured that you have every memory safely guarded.
Photostick only comes in three types of capacity: 8, 64, and 128 GB. The higher the number, the more pictures it can save. 8GB can keep up to 3,500 videos and pictures; the 64GB PhotoStick can reach 30,000 pictures and video, while the 128GB can archive a maximum of 60,000 pictures and videos. They all come with a standard USB entry.
How Does It Work?
It only takes two steps to function. First, you plug it into an empty USB port on your computer. Then you simply hit “Go” once the built-in application automatically launches and you are done. Disconnect the PhotoStick and keep it somewhere safe.
The PhotoStick works for iPhone, Mac, iPad, Android, Windows, and more, as long as it has an available USB entry port and if you buy the mobile version. A Photo Stick backup is not necessary. You don’t have to download any extra software or applications.
Cost and Price Plans
Price depends on the capacity you are buying. The 8GB option will cost you around $30; the 64GB costs about $51; and, the 124GB version is approximately $82. You can buy one at full price and receive a second pair for half off (of the same capacity as the one you purchase).
Refunds are allowed for up to 30 days but are not guaranteed. All shipping and handling must be paid for by the customer if you are returning the Photo Stick, or it shall be deducted from your refund total.
To start a return, email the company at [email protected] and request a return. Make sure to attach a copy of your receipt or proof of sale to the email since it is required, and mail to the following address: Please note that the item must be in good condition and with its original packaging to be approved the refund.

There are no problems worthy of mentioning, but you will find yourself with a lot of positive reviews regarding the PhotoStick mobile version. Many reviewers praised the no-hassle set up of the product and the easiness of use once you plug it in. The mobile version was a great hit for travel and quick backup of pictures and videos on the go.
Competitors and Alternatives
PhotoStick vs. Picture Keeper: Picture Keeper works basically the same way but costs a few dollars more. It will also require you to purchase one that will specifically work for your smartphone; with an iPhone or Android entry. Various capacities are available, such as 16GB.
ExpanDrive: Unlike the above, this tool allows for your cloud (or other online storage) to expand in storage size. This way you can back up all files and save even more securely. It keeps away the necessity of a physical element, such as a USB.
SmugMug: This site is more for creative photographers who wish to display their photographs online. Save hundreds of pictures and design a template the embodies what you wish to show. You control access to each picture as you see fit.
Where to Buy?
The PhotoStick should be purchased on their main website for best results. This is also the only way to keep the 30-day refund valid. You can purchase a PhotoStick at the following website: https://www.thephotostick.com/
You should always first decide what it is you are looking for and what it is that you require before making a purchase. Buying smartly requires planning and understanding what it is you need in a device.
The PhotoStick is good and it works but it should be compared to other devices to determine its overall usefulness to you. If you are not a big picture taker, a simple USB device that is way cheaper may just do the trick.
However, if you take tons of photos, then the PhotoStick may be the perfect tool that you need to back up your precious moments.

Thanks to all those peoples that help me to not buy the photostick with your rewies
They make a great job with their comments.
After reading reviews I will not buy
I ordered a Photostick and was overcharged so I notified Photostick and advised them to cancel my order. I was advised I hadn't been charged and could place another order. I was sent 3 Photosticks and returned all three. I was only credited for 1 and have been unable after MULTIPLE attempts to get back the $127.98. They will not refund my money. This is a HUGE scam and you are not able to talk to anyone. It is only done through texting. Be advised this company is a SCAM ARTIST and will not assist you. If I could give less than 1 star I would gladly do so.
Started backup ok then after awhile it just stopped without a message. (It appears that if it finds an image it doesn't reconize it just stops). When it is removed and inserted back into usb drive a message appears that something is wrong with the photostick to do a scan. After the scan is finished u can start the backup again.but after a while it stopped again. They claim it will eliminate duplicates. In one case it created 14 duplicates! Also after only using 31%, with 60 some % left received message no more room on phostick.
I bought the 128GB version and wish I could still return the Photostick. The stick can't handle more than 60,000 photos. I have more than 100,000 pictures. Even when I reduced the number of folders to be backed up, the Photostick doesn't live up to its hype. It doesn't back up anything. At this point, I don't see the Photostick's advantage to having a much larger external drive to back up any number of photos. I don't get it. I assumed that the software on the stick would help ORGANIZE photos, not STORE them because the 128GB is a serious limitation.Two thumbs down.
