If 16GB Sandisk flash drive is genuine ebayer warjar1840 may make a loss

leave a comment »

If this Sandisk flash drive is genuine then warjar1840 risks making a loss by auctioning it on ebay – that said, it seems that this seller lists everything at auction with a start price of 99p. Given that fact, maybe this USB flash drive is genuine – if so, perhaps someone will get a bargain!

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.

Are this USA ebay seller’s Sandisk flash drives genuine?

leave a comment »

Seller neatstuff6070 has a number of auctions for Sandisk flash drives and we wonder if this seller may be yet another who fell into the trap of buying from a fraudulent supplier. If these flash drives came from a fraudulent wholesale outlet they will be counterfeit, fake capacity and will corrupt files. If they are genuine then a test with h2testw will confirm they have the stated capacity.

8GB Sandisk Cruzer flash drive on ebay UK a bit on the cheap side

with one comment

Given the fact that instead of dropping (as it did until around autumn last year) the price of flash memory chips is rising we find the buy it now price in this ebay listing by UK seller christrio71 a bit on the cheap side. Unless this seller managed to grab old stock at a bargain price from somewhere we can’t see how he or she could make a profit if these are genuine.

Are this UK ebay seller’s 2GB Sandisk flash drives genuine?

leave a comment »

We don’t see how UK seller rick.b123 could sell genuine new 2GB Sandisk microskin flash drives quite this cheaply on ebay and make a profit, given the fees charged by ebay and paypal along with the postage costs. Even the cheapest e-tailers (who buy in the thousands) charge more than £4.50 for these.

This leads us to suspect they could be counterfeits purchased from a fraudulent supplier. If they were purchased from a fraudulent supplier they will be fake capacity flash drives. A fake capacity flash drive corrupts files.

If this 4GB Sandisk USB flash drive is genuine then seller labsew risks making a loss on the sale. If it is not a genunine Sandisk flash drive then it will be fake capacity and will corrupt files. We notice that this seller has a lot of different models of flash drive for sale. If one proves to be fake then it is likely that all will be fake.

Feedback comment suggests we may be right to suspect this seller on ebay of selling fake flash memory items

leave a comment »

Feedback from someone who bought the memory card shown in the listing above suggests that we could be right to suspect that ebay seller easy-digital-store (registered in Hong Kong) is selling fake flash memory items. This seller offers Sandisk memory cards and Sandisk flash drives. We have an uneasy feeling that they are fakes – but we might be wrong.

UK ebayer auctions Sandisk USB flash drives – are they genuine?

leave a comment »

Ebay member 2010andyrach has listed a number of Sandisk USB flash drives on ebay at auction, a risky strategy (especially as the auctions only run for three days) if these are genuine because the seller is likely to make a loss. If the flash drives are not genuine then they will corrupt files as all counterfeits are also fake capacity.
