robert-9600

Kingmax do not seem to sell any 128GB flash drives so how it is that robert-9600 manages to sell them on ebay? This seller also offers this drive in 64GB – but as far as we can see the highest capacity available in this model is 16GB. We think this can only mean one thing, robert-9600 has been shopping in fake flash land and come back with counterfeits. Counterfeits lead to file corruption and data loss as they have a much smaller capacity than shown in the operating system.

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.
