SUPER TALENT PICO INTRODUCTION
Whether you like it or not, USB flash drives are the most popular computer peripheral in today's market. Because of this, competition by flash drive manufacturers has been working day in and day out to make their product somehow different and stick out in a crowded retail channel which is teeming with flash drive options of varying size, cost, construction and capabilities.
Some boast that they are the fastest drive, the toughest drive, the drive with the most capacity and the most popular characteristic, the smallest drive. Today's review covers one of the smallest drives with the largest capacity on the market. Not only does it pack a staggering 8Gb of memory, but is also as tiny as your fingertip.
But as with most small flash drives, their reduction in size will sometimes affect other qualities such as its transfer speed. And seeing that this is an 8Gb drive, you wouldn't exactly want a drive that takes a half an hour to fill up.
Let's see how this small flash drive option work in the real world.
