Fake Sony USB flash drives, where do they come from? There are many wholesale internet sites in China who offer them at very cheap prices. You can buy one for as little as $5 US per unit for an advertised capacity of 128GB. Many eBay resellers buy them, then list on eBay. Imagine if you can sell for $50 to $100 US. It is an amazing profit. Obviously it is impossible for a 128GB flash memory chip to cost only $5. The eBay sellers will try to do a markup for flash memory, that gives an impression of respectability to the untrained consumer eye.
If you bought a flash memory item from C2Coffer seller yuan5588558 you are advised to test item(s) immediately for advertised capacity. Read: H2testw 1.4 – Gold Standard In Detecting USB Counterfeit Drives
