All Super Talent USB drives are backed with a lifetime warranty. All three 8GB PICO drives are available from eWiz.com today for under $35.
8 GB that small for $35? Oh hell yeah. Thanks HH news, I just might end up buying this. I'll just do some reading of impressions first. My brother has a 4Gb which looks almost exactly the same, but it cost around $50 when he got it last year. Right now I can't find the small model for sale anywhere, including the site mentioned, but I'm gonna keep my eyes peeled.

Hopefully they're fast enough for ReadyBoost. Would make a great accessory to any laptop running Vista.

cant wait to get one this would be a great repalment for the 4 gb usb i have
and to think I just spent 25 bucks on my 4gb patriot xt (prices went down 5 bucks 2 days after i bought it)... dam... well, $35 for a USB drive that has those kinda speeds is ridiculous assuming it works correctly.. someone buy it and let us know!

im thinking about ordering it next week
***** Time you enjoy wasting, was not wasted. *****
The three models are now available online:
$36.99 free shipping. I'm pretty tempted. edit: Now only about $30.
But which to get... Hmm. The C is the smallest, might go there.
think i go with "a" anything else i feel ill lose in my couch to never be seen again
If someone gets one, they will have to let us know what the actual read/write speeds are. It says up to 30MB/s transfer, which would have to be read speed, but even if the write speed is only half that it should still be perfect for ReadyBoost. At $30 these things are a steal.
