We don’t think the flash drives listed by doubt henryxu86 are genuine 64GB USB flash drives, we think they are fake capacity and will corrupt users’ files. We would normally advise this seller to test the drives with the free program h2testw, however the delivery time indicates that this seller is probably drop-shipping.

If this is the case henryxu86 will not have the flash drives on hand to test them as they will be shipped directly from the supplier – no doubt in China. Drop-shipping is extremely unwise where flash memory is concerned as there are many fraudulent suppliers. We strongly advise sellers to avoid it like the plague!

Apparently a kind ebay member has warned this seller there could be a problem – let’s hope that henryxu86 paid attention and is dealing with the situation in a sensible manner.

As usual we strongly advise ebayers to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.

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