We are fairly certain that this 4GB USB flash drive listed by Singapore based seller smarthotz will prove to be a fake that corrupts users’ files. We have never yet come across a genuine USB flash drive with one of the shiny little capacity stickers shown in the seller’s photo. Every flash drive we tested that had one of these was fake.

You can buy genuine 4GB flash drives at this price from reliable suppliers – this would be a much more sensible idea than taking the risk of buying from persons unknown on ebay!

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.

Report your fake if testing confirms you have purchased fake capacity flash memory on ebay.
