We think the 128GB USB flash drives sold by ezshopline are fake capacity and will eventually trash users’ files. The seller (like many other ebay sellers) no doubt bought these from one of the many fraudulent wholesalers that sell fake flash memory.

Seller ezshopline may not be aware that they are fake – like many other people the seller probably just looked at the properties and assumed that what it said there is correct. This is far from the truth – fakes are programmed to lie to the operating system about the capacity.

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.
