Although the price of flash memory dropped in the years since its introduction until summer 2009 it has been rising since then due to the fact that demand is outstripping supply. There are now many types of device that use flash memory and manufacturers cannot keep up.

We think, under the circumstances, that these USB flash drives from UK ebay member seller4466921 seem a bit too cheap. This makes us wonder if the seller bought from one of the fraudulent wholesale outlets in China. If this is the case then this USB flash drive is fake capacity and corrupts 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.
