2GB Transcend on ebay seems too cheap to be genuine

This 2GB Transcend USB flash drive from smartserv seem too cheap to be genuine. We think that smartserv probably bought these (and the 4GB Transcend drives listed) from one of the fraudulent wholesalers supplying counterfeit and fake capacity memory. The seller may have no idea that these are likely to be counterfeits that will destroy data.

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.
