llldddeloyde This flash drive is without doubt fake capacity. Although the photo is rather unclear the name MICRO VAULT (a Sony trademark) is visible on the drive – Sony has never sold flash drives of this capacity – it is fake fake fakity-fake. Seller llldddeloyde obviously doesn’t know much about flash memory and was probably fooled by a fraudulent supplier. Sellers should not buy flash drives to sell on ebay without doing their research and learning what is really available!

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.

  1. A recent report from an ebay member who contacted this seller about the drives being counterfeit and advising testing with h2testw was answered as below:

    “Yeah, I did check a few of them and they were all just over 8gb. But thanks for your concern.”

    So, not only are the drives falsely advertised as Micro Vaults, but the capacity is falsely advertised too!
