Buyers, beware! Fake 64TB, 128TB SSDs flooding online marketplaces

Walmart is just not the one large on-line retailer that’s fighting pretend merchandise on-line. A whole bunch of listings from dozens of distributors on eBay (opens in new tab) and AliExpress (opens in new tab) are presently promoting 64TB and 128TB SSDs at all-time low costs.

The issue is that there aren’t any mainstream 128TB or 64TB SSDs. Samsung demoed a 128TB SSD again in August 2022, whereas Nimbus Information sells a 64TB SSD to enterprise clients solely, however neither will promote for the $30 that fraudulent distributors are asking for. Regardless of this being a transparent case of “too good to be true”, dozens have been stung.

Worryingly, not solely are these drives pretend, they might additionally simply have been contaminated with malware. Earlier this 12 months, hackers mailed out USB flash drives contaminated with ransomware, even together with teddy bears within the bundle.

SSD costs are falling quick with 2TB fashions obtainable for lower than $100, an all time low attributable to a crash in demand and an extra stock. Regardless of this, we wouldn’t count on excessive capability drives (4TB, 8TB or 16TB SSD) to expertise any comparable drop in worth as a result of demand remains to be excessive for these goal markets (enterprise, companies, prosumers).

Amazon appears to have efficiently prevented that rip-off, in all probability as a result of it has stricter controls on sellers from mainland China, though there are others – like pretend 2TB USB flash drives (opens in new tab) or 2TB microSD playing cards (opens in new tab).

TechRadar Professional has reached out to eBay and Aliexpress to seek out out what they’re doing to eradicate pretend product listings and weed out the dodgy distributors forward of the profitable 11.11 Singles Gross sales, Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
