Dodgy looking 256GB USB flash drives on ebay Australia

leave a comment »

We don’t think these swivel type 256 USB flash drives from centralwest2000 will have the advertised capacity – though no doubt the operating system will report this due to fraudulent programming. It seems that this seller bought from a fraudulent supplier as we don’t think anyone except Kingston has yet produced a 256GB USB flash drive. We are sure that buyers of these will end up with lost and corrupted files.

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.
