Suspicous and Fake Flash Drives

Fake copies of Microsoft Office, operating systems, memory cards and flash drives, fake designer clothing... anything of that nature. At any given time TM offers thousands of fake itmes which breach their terms & conditions... and often do little about the problem. This is the place to discuss the issue.

Can you post up the results of running the "h2testw" program on it pls. If you Google the name, it's a German app. bloxster (569 569 positive feedback) 12:35 pm, Mon 16 Feb

Hi Mark, Running the test now. Ill let you know in 25hrs when its done... What info are you after particularly? Cheers, Owen. 12:51 pm, Mon 16 Feb

Thanks for that :-) It fills the disk up then verifies the files to show if there are any dodgy parts as its such a big drive. Gives great confidence to us purchasers as well ! bloxster (569 569 positive feedback) 1:36 pm, Mon 16 Feb
No worries, Ill let you know when its done. 1:38 pm, Mon 16 Feb

Seller Comment: Ive had the "h2testw" test running since yesterday and it now shows 150 hrs remaining... If the auction winner wants to run the test and is not happy with the results then I will gladly refund the purchase. Ive been using one of these for weeks now with no issues. Cheers, Owen. 8:20 am, Tue 17 Feb

As If using a sticker to designate the capacity of fake drives wasnt cheap enough - how about writing it on with a marker

I think HP are a professional enough company to package their drives the correct way up and print the capacity.
