    Does anyone here use a fake memory stick?

    I just bought one off ebay, knowing it was fake, mainly because it's half the price of normal. I got a 4GB Sony one.
    I'm just curious if anyone here uses a fake memory stick and if you've had any trouble with them? Have you had a fake one, and is it still going strong?

    i have a fake 2gb and it only stores about 1gb of good data the rest shows up as corrupt, that said ive had it ages now and still works fine, also the methods they use to make the new fakes is far better and some people swear the fake sticks are faster and better than sonys own

    Interesting. Well, the thing is, some people on the user's ebay comments acknowledged the card was fake, but it worked fine. I hope it can use all the memory on the disk.

    wouldnt imagine you will have any probs, the newer batches of fakes were far better than the ones from 18months ago

    I find it interesting how the fake cards are so much cheaper. In reality, these things must be so damn cheap to make, and all the big companies are just boosting the prices of them like crazy.

    but remember the companies selling the fake cards dont have any development costs the just copy the internals of a sony/sandisk card, also the components to make the cards have come down in price by the time the fakes appear on the scene so they also take advantage of that. i would also imagine the factories in china producing the fakes dont have shareholders etc to pay dividends to, so again they are able to keep costs lower. dont get me wrong i know sony must be making huge profits on them, but the people producing the fakes probably make the same profit on each card they sell, they just have lower overheads
