Sony VAIO USB Flash Drives Available in 16GB, 32GB, 64GB, 128GB. Best Price $$19.98 AU! Get Them On eBay.

Posted by flashchiptutor on August 16, 2010

The best price for Sony VAIO USB Flash Drives are found on eBay. They don’t cost very much. The most amazing thing is that Sony does not make usb flash drives using the VAIO branding. VAIO is for their laptop line.

You can buy a 64GB Sony VAIO flash memory pen stick for under $20 US. Not expensive at all. eBay seller oasfgtrtr lists them inexpensively and so far over 389 people have bought one.

The interesting thing is this seller has no feedback so far. Yet consumers are snapping these Sony VAIO usb flash drives up!

Does it really matter if it is a counterfeit item? No.

What matters is Sony VAIO counterfeits are dangerous. They are sub standard usb flash drives, with small flash memory storage chips. These Sony Vaio don’t deliver 16 GB, 32 GB, 64 GB, 128 GB capacity. You are lucky if you get as much as 4 GB storage. This is why they are dangerous. If you put files on the usb pen stick and fill up beyond the real capacity, you lose your files for good because they can not be stored on the flash memory drive.

Consumers pay a heavy price when they bid and buy Sony Vaio usb flash drive fakes. Sellers who buy these fakes from wholesaling internet sites in Asia can expect to be ruined when buyers discover the truth.

Both consumers and would be resellers need to do their homework on flash memory before buying. If a brand name is used to promote the sale of flash memory – check the brand names site! Did they ever make the item? What is the general suggested price? What is the discount price from a reputable internet site such as newegg.com?

Buyers from eBay seller oasfgtrtr are going to get a terrible shock. A lot of them will not only lose their money but their data files too.

SOSFakeFlash and the new FakeMemorySentinel site have documented so many fake Vaio Sony usb flash drives. Both sites report an increase recently for the sale of Sony Vaio usb flash drives.

Sony can’t stop manufacturing sites in China from counterfeiting their name and brand lines. There are just too many companies over there exploiting Sony’s name. Consumers and resellers who cut corners and don’t research properly on the internet before buying, become victims.

If you see the item listed above anywhere, please do not buy.

Don’t be tempted to resell it either. If you visit SOSFakeFlash or FakeMemorySentinel you will discover what could happen to you as a seller. Please do your homework, research the product you want to sell in a local store, or at an internet site. Understand that flash memory products have a very low profit margin for true capacity.

This advertising is very high priced. It is a warning that not all counterfeits are cheap, some attempt to pretend to be genuine by offering very high prices. If one fish hook does not get you another is designed to. Counterfeiters have many.
