But hey, the number of folk that fall for it make it profitable.
so I have lately bought a memory stick from eBay described as 2TB. I did not really need it, but I was fascinated about the size. I am having issue now that every time I copy some sample files such as some TV series or large bunk of photos, then always some of it is corrupted.
I have tried formatting the memory stick to different file systems: exFAT, NTFS, but it did not help. Is there any way to make it usable, so that most of the files will not get corrupted while copying? Do you have any ideas about what is happening or how to bypass it? I am also not sure what feedback leave to the seller on eBay
At Newegg I see a Kingston 1 TB thumb drive for $953.99 and a Kingston 512 GB one (USB 3.0) for $419.99 (the one from Corsair is $329.99). That sounds like fair prices for such a product. Kingston and Corsair are well-known makers and Newegg has a good return policy.
So, based on this seller only, my answer is "1 TB". If that's enough for you, I wouldn't go higher.
For now I tend to go for cheaper solutions for near pocket size 1TB. The problem is backup. Folk continue to forget that if they get a 1TB anything you need one or two more to keep from losing it all.
http://www.amazon.com/Crucial-BX100-Internal-Solid-State/dp/B00RQA6LIM/ get me a 1TB SSD which I could pop into http://www.amazon.com/Inateck-Enclosure-Tool-free-Installation-Compatible/dp/B00DW374W4/ (I own that one.)
That's 500 for a 1TB flash drive.
I did pop a 500GB HDD into that case for not much.
The seller says she's pregnant and prefers a full refund (39.99 GBP) above a negative feedback. Worth a try.
Personally, I wouldn't hesitate, however, to give negative feedback about the quality of the product after receiving the refund (although it would be fair to give a positive feedback about the prompt refund, in the unlikely case that happens).
And this was the first time I ever read "earthquake proof" as a property of a thumb drive!
I really wish all countries where EBay is allowed would pass a law that banned all flash sales on Ebay, no exceptions. The site is flooded with fake flash and they aren't doing enough to block the scammers. Sure, kill a profile, but the same ones come back with another, and most already have registered a hundred or more so they can immediately move right over into the next profile they have. The only way to end it is to ban all flash sales from EBay.
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
