Beware Fake Corsair Survivor Drives

As the proud owner of a Corsair Survivor 32GB drive it is my duty to spread the word that there is at least one company out there selling fake Corsair Survivor drives. Corsair has informed us that they do not make a 64GB or 128GB version of the Survivor being offered by unscrupulous companies so beware of any retailer listing drives in those sizes. You can avoid fake products by buying only from reputable retailers. This has been a [H] public service announcement.

Interesting... Guess the companies making them fake motherboards and video cards have moved onto jump drives..... Wonder when they will move onto making fake processors....

^ Scary thought there...

That stinks, the Survivor line is very high quality and I've got a couple of them. Excellent drives imo so I can see how this is misleading for folks. Only buy from reputable sources...
