Fake flash cards

On a regular basis there are fake flash cards showing up on the market. I have encountered them twice personally. Once on ebay on a USB flash card and another on a web based “deal” web site. In both cases they label the cards as larger than they are. The one was a uSD card labelled as a 32G but was actually a 16GB. The old adage about if it’s too good to be true, it just maybe came true. Funny thing is if you don’t actually write to the whole card you may not even know that you’ve been taken until it’s too late, which is actually what they are counting on. There is an ap out there called H2testw. This is designed explicitly to fully test out the card front to back. I highly recommend you always consider running a thorough test before you start using your new flash card. It will also tell you the speed of the card so you know you have got exactly what you bought.
