External hard disc drive deal!

Hello!

Out of space on computer? Want to buy new disc? Well I strongly advice you to think over if your ebay deal is legit. Because you may run from this:


Into that:


This has been found somewhere in Russia, the guy has reported it as broken at PC repairman. This HDD was able to hold only 5 last minutes of a movie.. as it is 128MB flash memory configured to overwrite everything as it reaches it's limit.

More information HERE.

I hope that I will never buy such crap ;)

  13. I would only buy something expensive like a hard drive from a legitimate seller, and probably only in person from a store. Too much risk of things like that.

  16. Oh god that sucks, but the overwriting itself is a smart idea! I actually bought a 16GB Micro SD card that did just this! It was only 1GB. However thanks to paypal I got my money back :)

    I'm now wary of really cheap memory on ebay, it's too easy to fake.
