APH Networks Reviews: Super Talent Pico-C Gold 8GB

From the initial introduction of USB flash drives to present day, this is one innovation that changed the way people carry data around. Back in the days of floppy drives and floppy disks with a formatted capacity of roughly 1.38MB, to the age of CD-RWs that was never able to take precedence as the prominent portable storage medium, and ending up to present day's popularity of USB flash drives -- how did it all come to be? Computer enthusiasts first embraced this new type of products years ago as a symbol of geekiness and a sort of unashamed pride. Bringing on 16MB, 32MB, and 64MB drives, I still vaguely remember how 'advanced' I was with a stunningly large 512MB SanDisk Cruzer Micro. "It's so compact and convenient," as we used to call it. Times have changed, and I still remember us praising the OCZ Mini-Kart over two years ago on how unbelievably small it is. How two years can mean so much in the technology world! This time, however, Super Talent makes its attempt to redefine the market of unbelievably tiny USB flash drives with the Pico-C -- but while they're at it, they are unwilling to lose the capacity war with the drive available up to 8GB of storage, and claims to be a winner in performance as well. Huge ambitions? We'll see how they live up to that.
