Suspect looking 128GB flash drives in OZ

irinka_t We don’t think for one minute that these flash drives from seller irinka_t on ebay Australia are genuinely 128GB.

The packaging is suspect, the low start price is suspect and the unfamiliar branding is suspect. We think these are fake capacity drives that will trash users’ files.

The seller may be totally unaware that there is such a thing as a fake flash drive but we are convinced that if irinka_t tests these with h2testw they will be nowhere near 128GB.

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.
