We think this Transcend flash drive may be counterfeit

Jetflash V30 flash drives are colour coded according to capacity and do not seem to be made in capacities higher than 16GB. The colour shown in the picture is for a 2GB drive not 32GB. These seem to be either 2GB transcend that have been programmed to display a false capacity or altogether counterfeit. We suspect that citycomputersystemsltd bought these from a fraudulent wholesaler.

We strongly advise the seller to test the flash drives and (assuming we are correct) contact buyers to warn them they are fakes and give a refund. If citycomputersystemsltd bought other flash memory items from the same supplier we suggest they check these items too.

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.
