We have a feeling that ebay seller tomtomsstore (who registered on ebay Ireland on 23rd April 2010 and does not yet have any feedback) has made the big mistake of buying flash memory items from fraudulent suppliers in China. We have not yet found a flash drive of the type shown in this listing that genuinely had the advertised capacity. This model has always proved to be a fake capacity USB flash drive that corrupts files once the true capacity is reached.

All flash drives of this model that we have tested with h2testw (whether sold as 4GB, 16GB or higher capacities) proved to have a capacity lower than that advertised, and usually less than 4GB. Hopefully there will not be any buyers before this new seller realises they may be fake, withdraws this (and other flash memory items) from sale and tests 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 (or worse still, your customers) run the risk of data loss and corruption.

Report your fake if testing confirms you have purchased fake capacity flash memory on ebay.
