Test flash memory items from ebay seller jozron with h2testw now!

with one comment

Why would Hong Kong based seller jozron feel the need to use private ebay auctions for flash memory items? Usually when sellers do this the items are obviously too cheap to be genuine but items from this seller are not cheap!!

We wonder if this could be to hide what was sold in case of complaints – and it seems, looking at the seller’s feedback that there have been a few. We strongly advise anyone who bought a flash memory item (USB flash drive, memory card etc) from jozron to test immediately with the free program h2testw as we think you are at risk of data loss and corruption.

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.

  1. Hi All,

    I have bought a KingMax 16GB class 10 microSD card from Jozron user on ebay (Feb 10,2012). Arrived yesterday. The package was OK, it came closed on a blister. Although the first suspicious thing was that the printed brochure inside the blister had a sticker with “16GB” phrase printed and put over the “8GB” original printing. Mmmm…. And on the back of it there was another sticker with the 16GB barcode and product number over the original barcode and p/n. Well, maybe they run out of brochures, I thought.

    Then I made two tests, one with h2testw and the other using Windows itself. Both gave me no error signs and confirmed that the card speed is ~9-10MB/s for writing, ~18-20MB/s for reading and ~6MB/s for reading and writing at the same time (copy a file from and to the card at the same time).
    So, in my case, the card is good.

    Thank you for this website.
