Performance and Final Thoughts

The Pico C Gold:

The Pico C comes in two flavors - Nickel plated or Gold Plated and both retail for the same money.  They also come in capacities ranging from 2GB to 32GB.  With this Special Limited Edition of 24k gold plating, the Pico C comes in a much nicer package than the Pico Mini.

The presentation of the package is much more refined although it still feels a little cheap.  If Super Talent were to put this flash drive is a wooden box with a sliding lid, they could easily get $100 for it at any gift shop.  This little drive is a thing of beauty though once you realize that you can hold an entire HD-DVD or Blu-Ray movie on this little unit.

Although the drive is pretty classy, Super Talent could have raised the bar if they had engraved or stamped their name and the drive capacity instead of just screen printing it.  You can't have everything, but that little touch would have taken it over the top in my opinion.  As it is, the screen printed top makes it looks a little cheap.  The back of the drive however, does not look cheap at all.  It has an amazing finish.

Security:

Because flash drives these days have large enough capacities to store a lot of data, keeping your data secure is a good idea.  The Pico Mini comes with SecureLock - a basic, yet effective solution to keep your data away from prying eyes.
