mediaworld-73540 list massive 512GB fake flash drive on ebay

leave a comment »

The 512GB USB flash drives listed on ebay by mediaworld-73540 are fake capacity, which corrupts files. There is no such thing as a genuine 512GB USB flash drive yet, only fakes manufactured by fraudsters in China. As this seller obviously bought from a fraudulent supplier the 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drives from mediaworld-73540 are likely to be counterfeits which also corrupt data.

balidreamer2009 lists enormous 512GB fake flash drive on ebay

leave a comment »

There is no such thing as a genuine 512GB USB flash drive yet. The USB flash drive in this ebay listing from balidreamer2009 is a fake capacity flash drive that corrupts files. It was manufactured by fraudsters in China.
When the first genuine 512GB flash drive appears on the market it won’t look anything like this – it would simply not be technically possible to fit enough memory chips into the pictured flash drive to have a capacity this high.

Seller balidreamer2009 has obviously been shopping in fake flash land and purchased flash drives from a fraudulent supplier. All flash memory from this seller is sure to be fake, though balidreamer2009 may not have a clue that this is the case. Perhaps someone should point this seller at this post and suggest that he or she tests the items listed for sale with h2testw to learn the truth.

There are no genuine 512GB USB flash drives from Kingston or anyone else yet! Any you see advertised at this capacity are fake capacity flash drives and a fake capacity flash drive corrupts files.

pward932010 lists fantastic fake 512GB USB flash drive on ebay!!

leave a comment »

The USB flash drive in this listing from ebayer pward932010 is without any doubt a fake. This USB flash drive is fake capacity and corrupts files. We’ve seen a lot of fake flash drives listed on ebay with this packaging. Beware of any flash drive (whatever the capacity it is advertised at) that come in this packaging!

This particular flash drive has a fairytale capacity – no genuine flash drives of 512GB capacity exist yet!! We think the real capacity of this flash drive is probably more like 512mb (half a GB) – a very expensive fake.

This supposedly 512GB flash drive listed on ebay by qwerty_901 is a fake. No one is selling genuine 512GB USB flash drives yet – least of all Sony, who don’t yet sell anything over 32GB as far as we can see. This USB flash drive is fake capacity and corrupts files.

Good greif – we couldn’t quite believe our eyes when we saw this ebay listing for a fantastically huge fake 512GB flash drive from princess_tallulah! No-one (not even Kingston) is selling a genuine 512GB USB flash drive yet! This is a fake.

512GB USB flash drive listed on ebay by sarimrose is a fake

leave a comment »

This 512GB USB flash drive listed on ebay by sarimrose (registered in Canada) is fake capacity and corrupts files. There is no such thing as a genuine 512GB USB flash drive yet, so any you see listed for sale at the moment will be fake.

When a genuine 512GB flash drive does appear it certainly won’t be in this packaging – all flash drives we tested that came in packaging like this were fakes from China. This seller no doubt bought these from a fraudulent wholesale outlet in China.

512GB USB flash drive from seller nidasali on ebay USA – fake!

leave a comment »

There is no such thing as a 512GB USB flash drive yet and we suspect that USA ebay seller nidasali knows it! These are fake capacity USB flash drives. A fake capacity USB flash drive inevitably corrupts files. This seller gives the following words of assurance to allay your suspicions that these might not be genuine:

“Bigest Capicity so far in USB Flash Drive. This USB Drive has capicity of 512 GB With some sharing on windows operating system it will shows that it is 511 GB available 64 Kb Used. That Doesn’t Mean that something is wrong. I have been Using this to backup my three diffrent computers and its working fine no problem so far.”

We think the picture on the right expresses our opinion of this statement from the seller – unless of course there is almost nothing on his or her hard drives!

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.

In the case of such a massive fake as this testing the whole drive would take days – just test the first 8000 megabytes – that should be quite enough to show it is fake.

Report your fake if testing confirms you have purchased fake capacity flash memory on ebay.

Massive fake 512GB Sony USB flash drive listed on ebay USA

leave a comment »

The highest capacity genuine USB flash drives currently available are 256GB – anything you see advertised as higher capacity than this is certainly a fake like the one in this ebay listing by tavornsak2499. Any flash drive (whatever the advertised capacity) that comes in this packaging is pretty sure to be fake – every single one that members of the fightflashfraud tested was fake capacity. A fake capacity flash drive corrupts files.

This 512GB USB flash drive listed on ebay USA by gamer51562 is fake fake fakity fake.

It was not made by Sony and does not have a capacity of 512GB (the real capacity will be more like 512mb) – this USB flash drive corrupts files because it is fake capacity.

512GB Sony Vaio USB flash drive listed on ebay USA

There is no such thing as a Sony Vaio USB flash drive of any capacity. Sony only use the Vaio name for laptops/notebooks, not for flash drives. Sony do not sell ANY flash drives of capacities higher than 32GB.

There are no USB flash drives made by ANYONE in 512GB capacity (yet, anyway!) – the highest capacity currently available is 265GB and at present there is only one flash drive of that capacity on the market.

The USB flash drive on the left is a fake that corrupts files. Seller kashifmuhammad obviously got these from a fraudulent supplier.

This seller shows a screenshot – perhaps this seller is foolish enough to think that what the operating system shows as the capacity is the truth. It is not necessarily the truth – the operating system only shows you what someone programmed the device to show the operating system.

The 500GB Sony drive listed by kashifmuhammad is also fake – 500GB is not a size USB flash drives will ever be offered in, this size is only used for hard drives. If you see pictures of a flash drive like the one above or the one on the right – steer welll clear – you are looking at a fake USB flash drive that corrupts files.

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.

A rare old fake on ebay USA!! There are no 512GB flash drives yet.

This is totally counterfeit and fake capacity – there is not yet a 512GB USB flash drive made by ANYONE and certainly not by Kingston – the highest capacity is 256GB. Seller skaldictechnologies obviously bought from a fraudulent supplier.

As usual we strongly advise ebayers to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.

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

UK seller lists fake 512GB USB flash drive on ebay

with one comment

snoopyweeps Snoopy started to weep in utter despair when he saw a listing by UK ebay member mskoneshop for a 512GB Kingston USB flash drive. Kingston do not make a flash drive of this capacity. Neither does anyone else.

It would not actually be technically possible to fit enough memory chips into the swivel type flash drive pictured here to create a 512GB flash drive. A flash drive of this capacity (if someone does eventually put one on the market) would be a lot larger than this and would cost over £500. Read the rest of this entry »
