Transcend 32GB Counterfeit USB Flash Drive Found On eBay – JetFlash V30

Posted by KittyFireFlash on March 8, 2009

Transcend joins Sony and Kingston to have counterfeit USB Flash Drives sold on eBay. JetFlash V30 line had a maximum genuine capactiy of 16GB in size. Transcend, like Kingston uses colour coding to distinguish different capacities. Currently targeted by counterfeit flash sellers is the 4GB model that is being supersized to astonishing 32GB capacity. It this 4GB model is also pretenting to confuse and to sneak in at 16GB a genuine size. Only the true 16GB has the pink band not green.

Sold on eBay by hellopetpet was a 32GB Flash drive.

Notice the colour band is green. The colour coding chart for the JetFlash V30 shows:

So green would be a 4GB usb flash drive and not a 32GB flash drive. The ebayer who performed the testing with H2testw 1.4 reported what size? 4GB!

This same model (green code) is for sale right now on ebay as 16GB by…
