That cheap 2TB USB stick is probably fake - here’s how you know

You find a USB stick online - 2 terabytes for the price of a month of Netflix? A total bargain. Or too good to be true? Because once the flash drive arrives, if at all, it soon emerges it’s a cheap, small-capacity USB stick only pretending to be big.

Search online - even on major platforms - and you’ll find countless offers for 1TB and 2TB flash drives costing between US$5-30 (RM20-131).
