Suspect listing by ebay seller in the USA for a Sandisk flash drive

leave a comment »


This seller in the USA has listed a number of 16GB Sandisk flash drives at auction with a start price of 1 cent. If the flash drives offered by simgen are genuine the seller is risking a loss on every drive as bid prices for flash drives are artificially low. The reason for this is all the cheap fake capacity drives available at prices you could never get a genuine flash drive for. This makes us wonder whether this will turn out to yet another counterfeit. 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.
