Suspect 128GB Sandisk USB flash drives on ebay Australia

with 3 comments

prepcom

As far as we are aware the Sandisk Cruzer micro (the flash drive pictured in this listing from seller prepcom) is not made in 128GB. We think this is a fake. Perhaps prepcom should phone Sandisk and check. There are many fraudulent wholesalers and we think prepcom bought these from one of them. Fakes trash files!!

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.

  1. As with most electronic devices being sold by Chinese manufacturers and Chinese sellers over the internet, they are generally fakes or knockoffs and do not live up to anyones expectations except for the manufacturers and sellers of these items that are reaping the big profits from then. If you are going to boycott anyone, boycott Chinese made products entirely.

    As long as there are people looking for dirt cheap prices on the internet or wanting to just make a fast easy buck, there will be scumbags out there ready to rip them off. The old saying still holds true today. If it sounds to good to be true, it probably is. You just need to use some simple common since when it comes to purchasing over the internet. Do a little research before you buy. In most cases you’ll be glad you did.
