I was surprised to see that the larger Pico 16GB was just as faster as the smaller Pico 8GB we reviewed back in July of 2008. Neither of the two may be the fastest of the drives we have reviewed before but they held their own against units that are marketed as being the fastest on the market. The minimum, maximum and average transfer rates all ranged at the top of the list according to HD Tach. But what many of us will like is the CPU usage which was the lowest of all the drives tested except the OCZ Throttle.
