60GB Sony MicroVault Counterfeit Fake USB Flash Drive

Posted by flashchiptutor on March 26, 2009

Beware Sony Microvault model advertised as 60GB with a packaging label of 60G is a counterfeit – fake! Sony never produced this usb flash drive. Sold on wholesaler internet sites in China and Hong Kong. Often sold as “upgraded” – there is no such thing. This drive is unlikely to have a real capacity of more than 512MB. This model is the favorite Sony Micro vault counterfeit sold on eBay. It comes in other sizes and packaging. Avoid being frauded or scammed. Do not buy this usb flash drive, you risk data loss. Do not sell this usb flash drive!

Important Reading:

Report in to SOSFakeFlash if your testing confirms you have a false capacity device.

The fake shown above has been around a long time and 60GB or 60G is very bad flash drive math. Whoever dreamed up that label was thinking hard disks not flash drives. Sizing is 1GB, 2GB, 4GB, 8GB, 16GB, 32GB, 64GB etc.

Please report any internet listing to:

    Hey thanks a lot.
    I actually came across this product and found it pretty cheap. Cheaper than Kingston 16GB…and due to it’s odd capacity (60GB) and the price, grew suspicious and hence thought of googling to see if the same product is available elsewhere too? Stumble upon your blog.
    Thanks once again, you saved me some moolah.

    Keep it up.

    Cheers.
