During the initial testing we found that Vista only reads 7.52GB of the Fat32 formatted drive which we felt was totally acceptable. Besides this the only other thing that we found out is the USB connector of the drive gets scratched up quite a bit the more and more you insert and removed it from the USB port. But we also felt that this is a given, I have yet to see this not happen.
As we figured earlier in the review the Pico Gold fell right in line with the other top drives on the market and in some tests outperformed them. Especially in the average transfer rate column. It did better than the top competitor, the OCZ ATV Turbo. But fell short of the ATV in the max column.
