private ebay auction for fake Sony Vaio flash drive from reproduce345

leave a comment »

There is no such thing as a genuine Sony Vaio flash drive – they are all fake capacity counterfiets which will trash your files. Seller reproduce345 is using a private ebay auction to sell this fake flash drive that corrupts files – this is a way of hiding what any customers who leave negative feedback are talking about.

Always research what is really available before buying flash memory items (USB flash drives, memory cards, MP players etc) as there are a huge number of counterfeits produced in China. It is often easy to spot counterfeits (copies of brand name items or items that carry a brand name but don’t even exist in the brand’s range) once you are familiar with what is really available.

Check out the web sites of companies such as Kingston, Sony, Corsair, Transcend etc. These web sites will show what models are available in which capacities and (where colour coding is used) which colour is which capacity.

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.
