fake 64GB Kingston flash drives sold by ebayer usb-tech10 will trash files

leave a comment »

Seller usb-tech10 states in listings that the flash drives sold are not genuine Kingston but does not seem to understand the implications of this. Copies of brand name items are counterfeits – and the sale of counterfeits is illegal. Not only this but in the case of counterfeit flash drives they are also fake capacacity. A fake capacity flash drive corrupts files. To put it simply – once the real capacity (a maximum of 4GB) is full files begin to be lost and corrupted.

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.
