The model shown in this listing by premierdirectfurniuture2009 is not available in 16GB – either the seller is using a stock photo (and ebay says you shouldn’t do this but should take your own photo) of the wrong drive or his drives are not real 16GB ones. The three different colours shown are are available in 2GB, 4GB and 8GB. As usual 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.


An ebay member has pointed out that the drives shown are actually available in 16GB. Maybe the seller did genuinely make a mistake when the item was first listed as 32GB after all. If flash drives listed by premierdirectfurniuture2009 turn out to be genuine 16GB we humbly appologise for our mistake.
