Why You Should Test Flash Memory Storage Before Using. Never Use A USB Flash Drive, Memory Card Or MP Player To Store Files Or Photos Before Testing The Actual Capacity To Avoid Data And File Loss.

Posted by KittyFireFlash on June 19, 2012

All flash memory should be tested for real capacity before using. Your best option remains the free to use software H2testw 1.4. SOSFakeFlash has promoted the use of H2testw for over five years. To understand why you should read: H2testw 1.4 – Gold Standard In Detecting USB Counterfeit Drives. Download links are provided, but you need to understand why you should use this software, so read first. The nice thing about H2testw is the report it can produce for you on your flash memory and it’s REAL capacity. If you are wise enough to use H2testw beforehand, you could avoid data and file loss if the chips are defective or manipulated. We call that ‘Fake Flash’. It is still very popular. You will find usb flash drives, memory cards and mp players being digitally altered to lie about their real size. Super sizing small flash storage chips is easy to do if you know how. Controller usb chips that are vunerable and easy to manipulate are used by counterfeiters all the time. Little cheap price for flash memory leads to little small storage flash memory chips – your illusion satisfied, your data lost.

In North America, flash memory prices in retail stores continue to drop! It is a dream come true. Almost risk free, safe. Yes, buying memory cards, mp players and usb flash drives are really cheap in retail chain stores. You won’t find 256GB flash drives very often, or even 128GB flash drives. They will not be in dump bins or on display racks, they will be under lock and key. Why? Because 128GB and 256GB is still very expensive.

Survey Flash Memory Prices Retail Stores. SOSFakeFlash Requests Your Participation. Please Assist. 2012 Global Price Drop For Flash Memory? Is It Cheap? New Trends. What Is The Real Story On Lower Flash Memory Prices?

The United States usually has the cheapest discounts for flash memory in retail stores, but they are getting cheap in Canada too!

At Staples in Canada recent prices?

a. Lexar 32GB TwistTurn USB Flash Drive – $19.98
b. SanDisk 32GB Extreme SDHC UHS-I Card (Class 10) – $69.96
c. Lexar 32GB SDHC Card (Class 4) – $19.92
d. Staples Relay 16GB MicroSDHC Card with SD Adapter – $24.90 (regular price, not on sale)

Can internet sites like eBay compete, offer the same low prices as retail stores for usb flash drives, memory cards or MP Players? Almost always, NEVER! Retail stores use their power to buy hugh qualities, that is how they get their special discounts. Retail stores only source their purchases for flash memory from authorized resellers or buy direct from the manufacturers. So the chance of them buying fakes or counterfeit flash memory is almost zero. Can eBay resellers say the same?
