Kim Jong Ill explains why flash drives on ebay are so cheap

with 5 comments

Have you ever wondered why USB flash drives and other flash memory items (such as memory cards and MP players) on ebay are so much cheaper than anywhere else?

We have a video in which it is all explained!

Did you buy a “bargain” flash drive on ebay and find that after a while your files vanished or your files became corrupt? Did you find that your flash drive mysteriously stopped working altogether? Did you find you could not format your flash drive? Did mysterious folders you couldn’t delete suddenly appear on your flash drive. Did you find your computer did not recognise your new flash drive?

Did you think there was something wrong with your computer when a flash drive was not recognised by it? Did you think the flash drive was “incompatible” with your computer? Did you think the flash drive had developed a fault?

None of the above was likely to be the reason for the problem. The real reason was probably that it was a crappy fake! Hundreds of fake capacity flash drives are sold on ebay every day. The video below explains why the “bargain” flash drives you can buy on ebay are not a bargain at all!

By the way – this video promotes blueloyal (who presumably made it to promote their sales) – although what is said about fake flash in it is true we cannot give you any gaurantee that flash drives purchased from them are genuine as we have not tested any flashdrives sold by blueloyal.

What we can guarantee is that any flash drive that fails testing with the free program h2testw should not be trusted with your valuable files!

Report your fake if testing confirms you have purchased fake capacity flash memory on ebay.

  1. Ahhhh, an advert for clappy fwash dlives. Velly velly good. Kung Chow Ptang Ptang Bustop Biscuit Barrel makes a good point on the vid. ….. You pay peanuts, you get a monkey. (Or is it that you pay a monkey, and it sends you poop?). As Micro says – it’s not very informative to those that are uneducated in the ways of fake flash sellers. It probably makes no sense to them. But still ……….. it was a bally good laugh.

  2. The Kingston factory tour is an interesting one, pity the tour commenter was a bit unsure of his words at times and missed out some vital stages in the chain.
    Nevertheless it does show what a massive investment Kingston has made in terms of robotic mass-production.
    I was please to see the Girls at the end putting on the little stickers though.

  3. Hi Micro – there are a couple of more serious youtube videos featured elsewhere on our blogs.

    This one amused me and I thought it told the simple truth without going into technical details – buy cheap, get fake capacity crap.

  4. Personally I think this video will leave the un-knowing totally unknowing. However once ON UTUBE you are presented with many other, serious and far more educational videos, just search for FLASH, DRIVE, HACK
    and see what you get…
