Beware Sony Vaio USB Flash Drive advertised as 32GB with sophisticated black packaging it is a counterfeit – fake! Sony never produced this usb pen stick flash drive – Vaio is for Sony’s Laptop brand, MicroVault is for Sony usb flash drives. Sold on wholesaler internet sites in China and Hong Kong.

Do not buy this usb flash drive, you risk data loss. Do not sell this usb flash drive!
