Test flash drives sold on ebay by leanadrolin10 with h2testw now!!

leave a comment »

We think that all 4 models of 16GB USB flash drives sold on ebay by leanadrolin10 are fake capacity which corrupts files – they will show as 16GB when you plug them into the computer but if we are not mistaken this will be due to fraudulent programming of the control chip. We think the real capacity of the memory in this seller’s flash drives will be less than 4GB.
