There is no such thing as a genuine Sony Vaio flash drive – the flash drives in this ebay listing from superstar.9898 is a fake that will trash the user’s files after a while. Sony do not use the Vaio name for flash drives so if you see any USB flash drive anywhere with the Vaio name you can be sure that you are looking at a fake capacity flash drive that corrupts files. The seller also listed counterfeit and fake capacity 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drives on ebay.

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.

UPDATE 04/06/2010
It looks as though this seller has now been suspended by ebay so if you bought from superstar.9898 your item will probably have vanished from your won list.
