There is no such thing as a genuine 512GB USB flash drive yet. The USB flash drive in this ebay listing from balidreamer2009 is a fake capacity flash drive that corrupts files. It was manufactured by fraudsters in China.
When the first genuine 512GB flash drive appears on the market it won’t look anything like this – it would simply not be technically possible to fit enough memory chips into the pictured flash drive to have a capacity this high.

Seller balidreamer2009 has obviously been shopping in fake flash land and purchased flash drives from a fraudulent supplier. All flash memory from this seller is sure to be fake, though balidreamer2009 may not have a clue that this is the case. Perhaps someone should point this seller at this post and suggest that he or she tests the items listed for sale with h2testw to learn the truth.

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.
