Just to follow up with my test results....

I used the Java-based program, Quick Disk Test 1.30 to test the drive:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/filereadtest/files/quickdisktest/QuickDiskTest-1.30.jar/download

I selected the option to fill 50% of free space. When it finished about 6 days later, I clicked on "Start verifying" and got this error message:

"Error reading from file "H:\QuickDiskTestGeneratedData\TestDataFile05469": Header not found." TestDataFile05469 is the last file that was "written" to the drive.

The test files are 1 GB each, so I used LTF (Large Text File) Viewer 5.2u to view the file contents.

I was able to see data up through file TestDataFile00041. This seems to indicate that 41GB was available for data, but no more. Interesting that this is only 10% of what was advertised.

Needless to say, I will be asking for a refund.

strange capacity. Wouldn't trust it with anything as windows thinks its way bigger and trim is likely to try to put memory into parts that don't exist, due to trying to keep wearage of the space even.

WE knew it was fake. we didn't know how fake. So well done on at least testing it.
