Hmm, first of all, it doesn't show up as a regular mass storage device, so some things don't even recognize it. Second, when any files are being moved to/from the device, it won't let you browse any new directories, it just says "the device is in use." Third, the reliability. When trying to move over a lot of small files, my Gnex generally becomes disconnected (I thought it was just the device going to sleep, but even after I explicitly enabled "Do not sleep when connected via USB" in developer settings, it still loses connection). Finally, the most annoying part about it, on the Galaxy Nexus at least, is the speed. It's horrifically slow, for no good reason. Speeds seem to be much better on my Nexus 4, around 20 MB/s or so depending on the files, but I couldn't sustain read/write speeds from the Gnex of anything over 1MB/s most of the time.
