aceelectronics_uk The heading on an ebay listing for over 90 flash drives by seller aceelectronics_uk says the drives on offer are 1GB Kingston DataTraveler but the picture shown (see left) is of a 2GB DataTraveler and elsewere the drives are described as 4GB SanDisk!

We were under the impression that the 1GB model had been discontinued – does this mean the seller has a huge batch of old stock or what?? We are very confused about this listing and don’t know what to make of it at all.

We will be interested to hear from anyone who bought one.

As always we strongly advise ebayers to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.

Report in to SOSFakeFlash if your testing confirms you have a false capacity device.
