Genuine 32GB flash drive? We think it is very unlikely.

We think it is highly unlikely that these flash drives listed by UK seller gmozz-co-uk are genuinely 32GB. This model of flash drive is a favourite target of fraudsters. This is because it is easy to take apart and re-program to any fantastic capacity they think they can get away with. Up till now we don’t think any of these have proved to have a true capacity over 2GB. We expect the seller was supplied by a fraudulent wholesaler in China. The seller may be unaware that there is even such a thing as fake capacity flash memory. We suggest the seller tests them with the free program h2testw. We think we will be proved right.

As ever 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.
