Beware of FAKES
on January 13, 2010
At Least two of the Sony Packaged Memory's Pictured here on Amazon are FAKES or COUNTERFITS.
The people that make these are taking non-sony generic crap 512's, 1,2,or4 G size chips
and creating very elaborate nearly perfect (looking) FAKES! Zoom in and look very closely
at the model numbers for the 8 and the 16 Gig. In the third and forth images you can plainly see
the fake model numbers I have shown below.
Their numbers do not exist in the True Sony lineup.
for example: MSX-M8GST/X & MSX-M16GST/X do not exist <<< BOTH ARE FAKE
Dont believe me,, go look it up for yourself ,,, GOOGLE it or look at the links below.
THE NUMBERS SHOULD SAY
for MARKII MS-MT8G & MS-MT16G Also there is an 8g that is not MARKII it is MSX-M8GS/X << older model.
There is never a T toward the end of the model number in these particular Larger memories,
and NO MARKII's ever have a /X or a MSX !!! in the model # at all!
This fake erroneous numbering scheme was barrowed from the 1G MSPD which has the number > MSX-M1GST/X
and from what I can tell is the only Sony Stick to EVER have the T in that location!
Take the time to look at these links which are both VERY, VERY Informative on the Subject.
Look In Comments for them:
You should also know there not just doing these Sony Memory Sticks. Sandisk and Lexar as well as all forms of
flash memories and USB Thumb Drives including Kingston, as well as Many Others are being FAKED....
