We think these 32GB flash drives sold on ebay by yoni_zadok will prove to be fake capacity and will corrupt users’ files. We think that this seller purchased these from one of the many fraudulent wholesalers supplying fake flash. The seller may have no idea that there is such a thing as a fake flash drive.

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 in to SOSFakeFlash if testing confirms you have purchased fake capacity flash memory on ebay.

This Kingston DataTraveler 100 seems a bit on the cheap side

We think this flash drive is a bit on the cheap side – either it’s a bargain or it’s counterfeit. We suggest that takavar1 contact Kingston and check the serial numbers of the drives with them to ensure he or she is not breaking the law by selling counterfeit items.

Is this a genuine 32GB USB flash drive?

If the flash drive advertised here by seller blueberry_yang2008 genuinely has a capacity of 32GB we will be very surprised. The buy it now price seems too low for the seller to make a profit. The seller previously sold the same model as 2GB – we suspect this may be the true capacity of this flash drive. If you bought one of these you should test it immediately it arrives with the free program h2testw

Report in to SOSFakeFlash if your testing confirms you have a false capacity device.

We would be keen to learn whether ebay seller cherrieslover is actually selling genuine 32GB USB flash drives or not. The seller claims to be selling the cheapest real 32GB flash drive on ebay and we would like to know whether or not this is true. If you bought one please test it with h2testw and let us know your results.
