This 512GB USB flash drive listed on ebay by sarimrose (registered in Canada) is fake capacity and corrupts files. There is no such thing as a genuine 512GB USB flash drive yet, so any you see listed for sale at the moment will be fake.

When a genuine 512GB flash drive does appear it certainly won’t be in this packaging – all flash drives we tested that came in packaging like this were fakes from China. This seller no doubt bought these from a fraudulent wholesale outlet in China.

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.
