fake 128GB Sony Vaio flash drive listed on ebay by soorma007

leave a comment »

This USB flash drive listed on ebay by soorma007 is fake capacity and corrupts files. There is no such thing as a genuine Sony Vaio flash drive – they are manufactured by fraudsters in China who program them so that they report a false capacity to the operating system. The real capacity of the flash memory in these is normally less than 4GB and it is for this reason that files become lost and corrupt after a while.

64GB USB flash drives from ebayer rlovely79 sure to corrupt files

leave a comment »

The model of USB flash drive shown in this ebay listing from rlovely79 is sure to corrupt files as it is a notorious fake capacity flash drive manufactured by fraudsters in China and sold by numerous fraudulent wholesalers. Seller rlovely79 no doubt fell into the trap of buying these to re-sell (as lots of ebayers do) because it looks so attractive. Lovely as it looks it will trash your valued data (video, photos, music or whatever you entrust to it) once the real capacity of the drive is exceeded by the files you try to save to it.

64GB Kingston USB flash drive from ebayer cbc1200 is fake

leave a comment »

The model of Kingston USB flash drive shown in this ebay listing is now discontinued. We are sure this type of flash drive was never made in 64GB and that the highest capacity was 32GB. They were colour coded anyway – so if it was genuine the one shown in the listing would be 32GB not 64GB! This is undoubtedly an unusually expensive counterfeit and fake capacity flash drive that corrupts files. Seller cbc1200 no doubt bought from one of the many fraudulent wholesalers in China who sell fake flash memory.

128GB DT200 flash drive in ebay auction by gramsay may be fake

leave a comment »

As this 128GB Kingston DataTraveler is being sold by gramsay as second hand the buyer will not be able to check the serial number with Kingston to ensure it is genuine. As the starting bid is so low we wonder if it might be a fake. If it is counterfeit it will also be fake capacity, which corrupts files.

UPDATE 07/06/2010
Seems that we were absolutely right in our suspicions about this seller’s flash drives – ebay item number 180517591703 from this seller (a buy it now listing) is a very obvious fake capacity flash drive which we can say, without a shadow of doubt, corrupts files.
