Generic 32GB drives auctioned by UK seller with very low start price

We don’t see how anyone could afford to risk listing genuine flash drives of any capacity over 1GB (let alone 32GB) at auction with such a low start price. Either clares-trading-room is an inveterate gambler or these drives are fake capacity. Of course there is one more possibility – maybe the seller is a rich philanthropist who wishes to distribute high capacity flash drives to the poor through ebay. That would be nice – but somehow we don’t think so.

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.
