These 16GB Sandisk flash drives sold by mar_direct seem a little on the cheap side.

We don’t see how the seller could possibly make a profit at this price if they are genuine. This makes us wonder if mar_direct purchased these from one of the many fraudulent sellers who supply counterfeits.

If they did come from a fraudulent supplier mar_direct may not be aware of the fact that there could be a problem. If they are counterfeit they will be fake capacity and will eventually corrupt users’ files.

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