Fake/Hacked High Capacity USB Flash Drives being sold on Trademe


I have started to notice a large number of Fake/Hacked High Capacity USB Flash Drives being listed on Trade Me.

The drives are being sold as 64GB, 128GB, 256GB or 512GB USB Flash Drives, but in fact are lower capacity drives (normally 8GB or less) which have had the firmware hacked so that they report a higher capacity.

ioSafe Rugged Portable wins Gold for Best Product of 2011 in PCMag Awards

The ioSafe rugged portable external hard drive has been awarded gold for the portable storage device category in the PCMag Best Products of 2011.
PCMag said:-
"We dropped it, we prodded it, we froze it in a solid block of ice. The ioSafe Rugged Portable Solid-State Drive (SSD) still works, even when frozen to 10° F-12° C. Did I mention that the ioSafe is a solid-state drive with a USB 3.0 interface? That means it's the fastest external storage you can buy right now. It is pricey, but if you're hard on your equipment, it's worth it to keep your digital files safe."
