with one comment


Despite the very blurred picture used in listings by paseo88 (registered in Australia) we know enough about flash drives to tell you that there is not a genuine 128GB USB flash drive that looks like this. We wouldn’t touch these with a bargepole – they are fake fake fakity fake and will corrupt users’ files after a while.

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 in to SOSFakeFlash if your testing confirms you have purchased a false capacity device on ebay.

  1. This seller is trying to pass off these counterfeit, fake capacity drives as generic. In the listing the Kingston name can just about be made out on the drive.
    The shape and style is unique to the DT100.

    The seller claims to be using one and everything to be fine. Rubbish!

    As for the display in properties, a genuine 128gb drive would never show as high as 127gb. Only hacked drives would read this high.

    Don’t believe a word of what this seller claims.
