Default 64GB Flash Drive $18.99 - Too good to be true???

Well, I found this deal on eBay today and with all the fake memory coming from that side of the world, I naturally thought it was too good to be true.
Then I noticed they sold 71 (He's selling about 2 every hour) of them and still has a feedback score of 99%. I doubt this seller would jeopardize his red star by selling fake memory unless he's going out with a bang or the drives are hot.

I know flash memory is getting cheaper but 64GB for $18.99??? Someone shed some light on this.

I think it's safe. And if not? Well, it's only $19. Pay with paypal for sure.

Welcome to the forum.

Is most likely the slowest flash drive in existence. But yes it looks safe.

Ebay has buyer protection if not.

This is the 128GB version on Newegg: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-022-_-Product

I honestly don't know how the seller is able to do that. Given, the 128GB version is probably double the cost of the 64GB, but it's still a **coughstealcough** at that price.

Lowest 64GB FD on Newegg is $145...

edit: Don't know if you guys realized...but he's from Australia. Shipping on that thing would be more expensive than itself (I would assume).

Oh...I looked around for the shipping in case it was free, but I didn't find it. I guess I should use eBay more than once a year.

I'd base it off the feedback and comments, really. Unless he made like 99% of fake feedback somehow.
