Are 64GB leather flash drives from marketnet_gre genuine?

leave a comment »

Seller marketnet_gre claims to have tested the 64GB flash drives in this ebay listing with h2testw and shows a screenshot of the program. We are not convinced – if these really passed testing with h2testw then it will be a first! We have tested a number of these leather type flash drives and all those that we tested were fake capacity, and a fake capacity USB flash drive corrupts files.

We advise anyone who bought one of these from marketnet_gre to run their own test with h2testw as we have a suspicion that this could be another case of firey pants. We wouldn’t touch any USB flash drive sold by marketnet_gre with a barge pole!

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.
