gremlin2sSeller luc_usb16 is yet another gremlin from China selling fake capacity flash drives. The Kingston flash drive in this listing is counterfeit and fake capacity. It will have a capacity much smaller than the advertised 16GB.

No one could sell a genuine 16GB USB flash drive of any type for this price with free P&P – let alone a genuine Kingston.Fake flash drives eventually corrupt users’ data when the true capacity is exceeded as there is nowhere for them to go.

We advise everyone to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.

Report in to SOSFakeFlash if your testing confirms you have a false capacity device.
