We are more than happy with the performance of the new SuperTalent Pico series of flash drives.
The reading is blazing fast at 31MB/sec and the writing keeps at 12.8MB/sec. Of course we have seen higher performance in our labs from other USB flash drives, but this babe is too small to and offers that much.
You can get 8GB Pico drive at $37, and SuperTalent also offers two more water resistant versions and of course a Retractable or lid option. If you are looking for a fast, reliable and good product at such small dimensions, the SuperTalent 8GB Pico drive is the best choice.
