UK seller lists obvious fake 32GB Sony Vaio USB flash drive

with one comment


This item is counterfeit. Sony do not make 32GB flash drives and no Sony flash drive is branded Vaio – the Vaio name is only used for laptops. We have never come across a counterfeit that genuinely had the capacity stated – normally they have a capacity no larger that 4GB at most. This leads to file loss and corruption as once enough files have been saved to reach the true capacity there is nowhere left for them to go. The fact that buyer IDs are being kept private suggests that jesd03 may know these are fakes.

We advise everyone who buys flash memory items to test them with the free program h2testw irrespective of where they were purchased – otherwise you run the risk of data loss and corruption.

Report your fake if testing confirms you have purchased fake capacity flash memory on ebay.
