This USB flash drive is fake capacity and corrupts files. Hong Kong seller fiveway_powers has been selling fake USB flash drives on ebay for over 6 months yet the seller still has a 99.5% positive feedback score.

We first reported on this seller back in September 2009 and at least 200 more ebay members have bought fakes from the seller since then. People are obviously still not testing their flash drives with h2testw.

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.
